Our Beliefs




We are a body of baptized believers from various backgrounds that have been united in Christ to serve His purposes in the Mount Forest area and around the world as God enables.

We hold that salvation is found in our God, Jesus Christ, alone;
Obtained through faith alone;
By the working of grace alone;
As revealed in the Bible, the inerrant Word of God, alone.


STATEMENT OF FAITH



Bible



We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God; that the sixty-six books as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments, were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God and therefore entirely free from error; that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian union.

God



We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal; existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Christ



We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence, with the Father in preincarnate glory, in His Virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return.

The Holy Spirit



We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and personality of the Holy Spirit who convinces of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates, and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.

Satan



We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the originator of sin, the arch-enemy of God and man.

Man



We believe that man was divinely created in the image of God; that he sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical and spiritual death.

Salvation



We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious, expiatory, and propitiatory death; that justification is by faith alone in the all sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of the Lord.

Future Things



We believe in the personal, bodily, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and judgment and eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.

Local Church



We believe that a local church is a company of immersed believers, called out from the world, separated unto the Lord Jesus, voluntarily associated for the ministry of the Word, the mutual edification of its members, the propagation of the faith and the observance of the ordinances. We believe it is a sovereign, independent body, exercising its own divinely awarded gifts, precepts, and privileges under the Lordship of Christ, the Head of the Church; we believe that its officers are pastors and deacons.

Ordinances



We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament in the following order:

1. Baptism, which is the immersion of the believer in water, whereby he obeys Christ's command and sets forth his identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

2. The Lord's Supper, which is the memorial wherein the believer partakes of the two elements, bread and the cup, which symbolize the Lord's body and shed blood, proclaiming His death until He come.

The Church and The State



We believe in the entire separation of church and state.

Religious Liberty



We believe in religious liberty; that every man has the right to practice and propagate his beliefs.

The Lord's Day



We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord's Day and that, in a special sense, it is the divinely appointed day for worship and spiritual exercise.

Civil Government



We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interest and good order of society; that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honoured and obeyed, except only in the things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only Lord of the conscience and the Prince of the Kings of the earth.
