We are simply, “Christians.” We follow the teachings of Jesus the Christ, as revealed in the New Testament Bible.
The Bible teaches us that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). We are called into the grace of Christ by the gospel preached by the apostles and prophets in the 1st Century (Galatians 1:6). This means that we have heard the good news (gospel) of salvation (Ephesians 1:13), which is the forgiveness of sins through His blood (Ephesians 1:7). We, therefore, believe that He has been raised from the dead and confess that He is our Lord (Romans 10:9, 10). We change our life-direction (called repentance) and are baptized for the forgiveness of our sins (Acts 2:38). At this point, by faith, we know that we have our sins washed away (Acts 22:16), we join Jesus in death, burial and resurrection (Romans 6:4-6), and we are saved (1 Peter 3:21).
As those saved by Jesus Christ, we are added to the church (Acts 2:47), live lives of transformation (Romans 12:1-2), and assemble together to stir up love and good works (Hebrews 10:24 & 25). We do this in love, humility and peace (Colossians 3:12-15) and express it in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Colossians 3:16). We include the Lord’s Supper in our assembly on the first day of every week (1 Corinthians 11:17-26; Acts 20:7), and freely give in support of the saints and our work (1 Corinthians 16:1 & 2).
We invite you to be part of this transformed life and to consider joining us in this effort.
