Mannington Church of Christ
What We Believe
THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD AND THEREFORE OUR AUTHORITY IN ALL WE DO AND BELIEVE
"Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me." John 14:23-24
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God...
2 Timothy 3:16
"But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 3:14-15
"knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit." 2 Peter 1:20-21
A PERSON MUST BE IN CHRIST TO BE SAVED
"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus," Rom 8:1
Leave behind sinful lifestyle
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead." Acts 17:30-31
In baptism our sins are washed away
"And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized , and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord." Acts 22:16
Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. Acts 2:41-42
WE ARE CALLED CHRISTIANS
"And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch." Acts 11:26
WE ARE CALLED THE CHURCH OF CHRIST
"The churches of Christ greet you." Romans 16:16
WE MEET AND HAVE COMMUNION EVERY SUNDAY
"Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.
THE KIND OF MUSIC WE WORSHIP WITH IS SINGING ONLY
"speaking to one another in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in you heart to the Lord." Ephesians 5:19
THE CHURCH IS SUPPORTED BY CONTRIBUTIONS ONLY
"Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come."
1 Cor 16:1-2
"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Heb 11:6
CONFESS THAT JESUS IS
THE SON OF GOD
He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter answered and said,"You are the Christ , the Son of the living God." Matt 16:15-16
"if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with thw heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
BE BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST
"For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ." Gal 3:27 Baptism puts us in Christ. Remember," there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ."
THE LORD WILL ADD YOU TO HIS CHURCH "And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:47
WE SHOULD BECOME LIKE CHRIST "By this all will know that you are My disciples , if you have love for one another." John 13:35
