We believe in short-term mission trips for long-term impact. We have supported pastors and students in Liberia, West Africa.
Whether it’s in America or somewhere else in the world, we give in Jesus’ name to relieve people affected by natural disasters or by man-made calamities.
(1) We teach a weekly Genesis Men class on biblical manhood at Friends Of Sinners (FOS), share a monthly breakfast with FOS men, and contribute to FOS financially.
(2) We support the jail chaplain by contributing to the annual banquet of Good News Jail & Prison Ministry.
(3) We serve monthly dinner at St. Benedict’s Homeless Shelter, and sponsor a bed at St. Benedict’s.
(4) We host Teen Challenge Sunday to raise funds to help Teen Challenge minister to individuals struggling with substance abuse.
(5) We take up an annual offering to support Gideons International in their Bible distribution mission. Also, some of our covenant partners are members of the Gideons.
We believe that the minister and congregation should actually open the Bible, read and learn it during worship, because God’s power flows through God’s Word (Jeremiah 23:29; Hebrews 4:12).
For people to truly experience God, they should be directly exposed to the unfiltered Word of God, through which Holy Spirit touches hearts, renews minds, and changes lives. Come explore the treasures of God’s truth.
The TRINITY: the one true God has revealed Himself in three manifestations known as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-existent, co-equal, active in creation and redemption.
JESUS CHRIST is the Messiah (God’s anointed King); Savior of sinners; Son of God & Son of Man, the God-Man; God in a human body; this incarnation made possible by the miracle of the virgin birth. Jesus is the embodiment of grace and truth, the sacrificial Savior of the world. He lived a sinless life, died a vicarious death on the cross for the sin of the world, bodily rose from the dead and ascended to Heaven from where He will return to conquer, judge and rule the world as King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever.
CREATION: God is the Creator of the universe and the origin and giver of life. The Creator is self-existent and eternal (without beginning, without end), omniscient (all-knowing, all-wise) and omnipotent (all-powerful, almighty). He created angels, the heavens, the earth with all its contents, and the human race to glorify Him as King. He is sovereign over all, and is the governor, provider and sustainer of all things.
MARRIAGE & FAMILY: Marriage was created and ordained by God as the union of one man and one woman to form a family, the basic unit and building block of human society, and the means of raising godly children. Marriage exists to express love, respect, responsibility, and sexual fulfillment that curtails sexual immorality, and to procreate children as God’s means of preserving and perpetuating the human race. Lifelong marital love between husband (male) and wife (female) should reflect the covenantal love between Christ as the spiritual groom and the Church as Hi spiritual groom.
SALVATION is not by religious performance or human effort but by the grace of God. Every human being has inherited the fallen, sinful nature of Adam & Eve and is a sinner by birth and by deeds. Repentant sinners are saved by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. God forgives sinners who repent of their sins on the sole basis of the shed blood of Jesus on the cross. The saved person has been declared righteous by God on account of Jesus Christ. A truly saved, born-again person is evident by a new life of goodliness and good works.
The KINGDOM OF GOD is the central theme of the Bible and the main message that Jesus Christ and His first-century apostles proclaimed. The “gospel of Jesus Christ” is the same as “the gospel of the Kingdom”. Jesus Christ authorized the Church with “the keys of the kingdom” and empowered the Church with the Holy Spirit to advance God’s kingdom agenda through the Great Commission of reaching people of all ethnic groups around the world with “the Gospel of the Kingdom”. Believers in Christ are children of the King and servants of His Kingdom.
The CHURCH is the family of God, the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, and the ambassadors of God’s Kingdom, assigned to advance the King’s agenda on earth. The church was birthed by the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. Every local church is a taskforce of God’s Kingdom on earth. The New Testament pattern is for every true Christian to belong to a local church for fellowship, spiritual growth, ministry and accountability. Based on Scripture, there is no such thing as a “church-less Christian”. Each local church offers church members opportunities to care for others and to serve their Lord and King, using their spiritual gifts to strengthen the church for impacting the world for God’s Kingdom.
The BODILY RESURRECTION of the dead will include both the righteous and the wicked. The resurrected righteous will be given glorified bodies like the body of Jesus Christ when He rose from the dead; with their resurrected, glorified bodies, the righteous will enter eternity to enjoy life with God forever in the New Heaven and New Earth. The resurrected wicked will be judged and sentenced to everlasting punishment in Hell, a literal place of fiery torment, prepared for the devil along with his angels and followers.
Based on Ephesians 5:18-20, our music ministry blends “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs”, accompanied by musical instruments.
Our primary music style is contemporary praise and worship.
If you can sing or play an instrument, consider becoming part of the CFA Music Team?
