Statement of Church Life

We believe Jesus instituted the church to glorify God and to advance His Kingdom through His disciples. We also believe God has a specific place for every Christian within the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:16 and 1 Corinthians 12:7-27). It is our intention to assist the people in this local body to walk daily with Jesus and to find their place in the body of Christ (whether here or in another local body). Anyone who has trusted in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is a member of Christ's Body (the Church). We will consider people to be members of this local body if they also have been baptized in water and regularly attend our worship services. We expect every member of this fellowship to exhort and encourage one another to become mature disciples (Hebrews 3:12,13; 5:14; & 10:23-25; and Ephesians 4:11-13).

As members of this body: 

 

  • We believe that we have been led to join together in the worship, witness and fellowship of this local church. ​

  • We affirm wholeheartedly the essential doctrines of biblical Christianity, as held by this church. ​

  • We commit ourselves to Christ and to one another. This means the church will play a central role in our lives. Our decisions will be based not only on what is good for our Christian walk but also on what is good for the church. We are to relate to one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, loving one another as Christ loves us (John 17:22,23). Also, God has not called us to superficial relationships based primarily on our convenience and a desire to have our needs met, but He has called us to relationships based on self-sacrifice and meeting the needs of others. 

 

We will endeavor, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to live out our Christian faith by yielding to the Lordship of Christ in the following ways:

  • To seek first God's Kingdom and His righteousness.

  • To live holy lives that will honor God and represent Christ well before the world.

  • To individually and collectively seek opportunities to present Christ to the lost.

  • To relate to one another in love, settling any differences in a timely and biblical manner.

  • To spend time daily in prayer and the Word and be actively involved in ministry. 

  • To support this local church by sacrificial giving, seeking opportunities for fellowship and regular attendance at meetings.

  • To be accountable in these things to one another and our God-appointed leaders.
