Our Foundation...

We believe God is a God of covenant. (O.T. Genesis 17:7, “I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.” N.T. Matthew 26:28, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”) The standard description of covenant theology views the history of God’s dealings with mankind in all of history, from Creation to Fall to Redemption to Consummation, under the framework of three overarching theological covenants – the covenants of redemption, of works, and of grace. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses are just a few of the biblical characters who help us understand how God works in covenant.

 

Think of Covenant Theology as a framework, or blueprint for major portions of the Bible. God creates, man sins, God promises to save His people through a Savior, He watches over His people and asks them to love Him by living up to their end of the covenant. (Exodus 6:7 I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.) God always comes through on His end of the deal. He is always caring, loving, and beckoning His people to be in relationship with Him and desiring them to live up to their end of the deal.

 

When someone gives their life to Christ, they are entering into a relationship with God. That relationship is one of mutual trust, admiration, enjoyment and commitment. We love Christ, because He first loved us. A covenant begins.

 

As a community of believers we also believe covenant plays an important part in our commitment to one another. So, we partner, journey, commit, covenant with each other, holding each other accountable to live out the life we profess and the love we have for one another.

Our Covenant...

 

• I believe in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The three are one. There is no separation in the deity of the Godhead. God is one being who exists, simultaneously and eternally, as a mutual indwelling of three persons the Father, the Son (incarnate as Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17, 2 Corinthians 13:14,I John 5:7–8, Luke 1:35.)

• I declare I am a believer in Jesus the resurrected Christ. I recognize Jesus’ blood was shed for my sin and He is the only way to heaven. (Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:3-8 & 18, John 5:24, Romans 10:9- 10, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Acts 4:12, John 14:6)

 

• I accept the Bible as God’s Holy Word. All scripture is God-breathed, alive, and as relevant today as it was in ancient times. All teaching and action should be measured against the Word of God. (Hebrews 4:12, John 1:1 & 1:14, Matthew 4:4, II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21, Romans 15:4-6, I John 5-13)

 

• I believe in eternal heaven and eternal hell. I believe Jesus Christ will come again as He promised and will judge all people.

(Matthew 24:4-27, 25:31-46, 1 Corinthians 15:50-58, Matthew 13:37- 43, I Thessalonians 4:13-18

 

• I want to grow in my love for God and obedience to Him, seeking to be Disciple. I will study God’s word, pray, regularly attend worship, tithe, serve, and surround myself with fellow believers. Proverbs 3:5-6, John 14:15, Galatians 6: 7 & 10, 1 Corinthians 16:1-2, Hebrews 10:25 & 13:16)

 

• I understand Jesus Christ commanded and commissioned the church to be a witness and seek to share Christ to a lost and dying world. I will accept opportunities provided by the Holy Spirit to use prayer, giving, service, personal example and, testimony to advance God’s kingdom. (Matthew 28:19, Colossians 4:2-6, 1 Peter 3:15 , John4-35)

 

• I believe the sacraments of baptism, the Lord’s Supper and the Word are critical in the life of the church and for each believer.

(Matthew 26:26-30 ,Romans 6:3-5, Hebrews 4-12)

 

• I pledge not to participate in gossip, slander, and other destructive behaviors that cause division and are inappropriate for advancing the cause of Christ on earth. ( Ephesians 4:29, Philippians 4:8, James 3:1-12)
