Statement of Faith

 
What we believe

 

We believe in one God, who exists in three Persons - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.

We believe that the King James  Bible; Hebrew & Greek texts it is translated from. are the inerrant GOD breathed Word.  It is our perfect guide in all matters of life.

We believe that sin has separated us all from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God.

We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took all our sins upon Himself, died and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.

We believe that salvation is the gift of God to man. This gift is effected by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it produces works pleasing to God.

We believe that there are two  ordinances  for the Church: Water Baptism is an outward act that demonstrates a believer's identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.  Holy Communion is a celebration of Jesus' death and our remembrance of Him.                                                                       

We believe that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He guides us in all areas of our lives. He also blesses us with spiritual gifts and empowers us to yield the fruit of the Spirit.

We believe that God wants to transform and heal us, so that we can live blessed and victorious lives that will impact and help others.

We believe that we are called to preach the gospel to all nations.

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again just as He promised.

Liberalism run amuck... The Rick Warren heresy

My Utmost for His highest …Oswald Chambers …................................................... A good example of the gold standard of Bible study... With an open Bible, verse by verse, precept by precept

We did My utmost for His highest for 2 or 3 years- and never did get it finished. It was very good.

By contrast, Rick Warrens book “Purpose Driven life, despite its initial disclaimer, IS all about the reader....Its Schuller and Peals Seeker sensitive approach to ministry; finding their purpose in life... feeling good about their choices... Like Warrens book Purpose driven Church Meeting a persons FELT needs
Finding their purpose but not giving a clear plan of salvation..... The Gospel is offensive So In Warrens universe, its about good deeds not about good doctrine , Being saved from your sins... No mention of your blood debt that Jesus paid on the cross...
I've seen Warren saying his ministry is about “finding your shape that GOD smiles when you do what you were meant to do... He says God gets pleasure watching you be you.
In the Purpose driven life, Warren mentions ;believing and receiving , Leaving the lost world no idea what that means...
Is there any doubt why the lost world loves his books and doctrine-less message?
When He sees the Pope does he rebuke him for being a revolutionary communist? Does Warren point out that when the Pope says that his statements are right and the Bible is wrong that the Pope is the one who is wrong?
That the Roman Church is the great Whore riding the Beast of Revelation? NO of course not .Warren says we all believe the same thing and should unite...

Does Warren tell the Mosloms that Allah is a false pagan god & that they are worshiping Satan? NO he makes it sound like Allah and GOD are the same...
Does Warren tell the Jews that all the Jews who died without Jesus are in hellfire? No that would make him unpopular... might even get him stoned :)
Warren is in bed with the Emergent Church heresy as well... accepting their New Age Mysticism... Ancient Druid Pagan rituals re-imagined... letting them speak at his church...
How many drops of poison do you want in your Chrystal clear drinking water???
IMHO that is what you get with Rick Warren...
