Beliefs and Commitments
Organized: September 20, 1879
Founded on Faith in Jesus Christ as the personal Savior, New Testament as law and gospel, the local government set up by the membership, two ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
We believe in the divine inspiration of Scripture and its unfailing authority in all matters.
We believe in the Trinity of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death and bodily resurrection and His ascension into Heaven, and his future visible return to earth.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a Godly life.
We admit the sinful nature of all men and recognize that Jesus’ death was the perfect sacrifice for our sin. We believe that our salvation is by grace from God through faith in Christ alone, with the promise of everlasting life to those who believe. Those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God. Because of this, we believe the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ. Arbuckle Community Church commits itself to this mission.
We Commit To:
We commit, with the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and maturity; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor and the spread of the gospel through all nations.
We are committed to maintaining family and personal devotions; to educate our children in the Christian faith; to seek the salvation of our loved ones and acquaintances; to walk with God in this world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our commitments, and exemplary in our behavior.
We further commit to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to be gentle and kind in word and deed; to be slow to take offense, but always be ready to forgive and seek reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior, to seek it without delay.
