DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH

ABOUT THE CHURCH

We believe and teach that the Church is the Body and Bride of Christ, and a spiritual organism made up of all born-again believers (see 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27).

We believe in the ordinances of believer’s water baptism by immersion as a testimony and the Lord’s Supper as a remembrance of Christ’s death and shed blood. They must be observed by all who truly repent and believe in Christ as He commanded (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). We also believe in the priesthood of all believers (1 Peter 2:9).

We believe and teach that the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Lord and Savior, and that separation from sinful pleasures, practices, and associations is commanded by God (Romans 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 6:14—7:1; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 John 2:15-17).

We also believe in the Great Commission as the primary mission of the Church. It is the obligation of believers to witness by word and life, to the truths of God’s Word. We believe and teach that the gospel of the grace of God is to be preached to all the world as commanded by our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ (see Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:19-20).
