What We Believe
THIS CONGREGATION IS DEDICATED TO THE RESTORATION OF NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIANITY IN ITS WORSHIP, SERVICE AND LIFE.
John 4:24; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:1,2
PREACHING-The Gospel is God's power unto salvation (Romans 1:16); so every message coming from the messenger is to be founded upon the Word of God.
COMMUNION-The practice of the early church included partaking of the Lord's Supper each week, so we observe this likewise. We urge each person worshipping here to examine their own heart (1 Corinthians 11:26).
TITHES & OFFERINGS-This has always been the Lord's method of financing His kingdom. Every person is encouraged to consider a tithe (10%) of his income as a beginning place for his giving to the Lord (Malachi 3:10; Hebrews 7:8,11; 2 Corinthians 9:5-8).
PRAYER-Prayer is direct communication between the Christian and the Heavenly Father (John 15:16; John 16:23-24; 2 Chronicles 7:14).
Service is an extension of worship, our service is two-fold (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:14-17):
LOCAL EVANGELISM-A continual effort to reach those who do not know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and to strengthen the Church is a primary task.
WORLD-WIDE EVANGELISM-This congregation practices the direct support method of missions. We give to missions and benevolence in our town, state and nation, and to many places around the world.
The Bible teaches that all people can be saved. This salvation must be based on God's standards that are set forth in His word.
