The most important ministry of the church is sharing our faith in Jesus Christ. The whole purpose of a local church is to win others to Christ, disciple them, and teach them to do the same.
Why do we do this?
We believe what the Bible says: that all have sinned; that those who sin will be judged for those sins; that the penalty of sin is death; that all whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire;
That Jesus Christ was born of a virgin; that He is fully God and fully man; that He lived a sinless life; that He died on the cross, suffering and paying the penalty for our sins; that He arose from the dead on the third day; that He ascended into Heaven;
That all those who in saving faith call upon Him are saved from the penalty for their sins; that those who call upon Him are born again, that is, they are immediately born into the family of God;
That Heaven is the destination of all the saved, those who have received the free gift of salvation; that all who are saved should follow the Lord in Scriptural baptism; that all who are baptized should join with a local, Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church; that the conduct and lifestyle of the saved should reflect their status as children of God.
