Holy Bible

Lo que creemos

La palabra:
Creemos que la Biblia es la Palabra inspirada de Dios y que contiene toda la instrucción que necesitamos para esta vida.2 Timoteo 3:16-17: No os limitéis a escuchar la palabra, y así os engañéis a vosotros mismos. Haz lo que dice. Nos esforzamos por permanecer lo más cerca posible de las enseñanzas de Cristo, ya que son palabras de vida eterna.Juan 6:68:Simón Pedro le respondió: Señor, ¿a quién iremos? Tu tienes las palabras de la vida eterna.

Bautismo:
Creemos que para seguir a Cristo, debes alejarte de tus pecados (arrepentirte), confesar a Cristo como tu salvador y nacer de nuevo mediante el bautismo.Hechos 2:37-38: 

 Cuando la gente oyó esto, se compungieron de corazón y dijeron a Pedro y a los demás apóstoles: “Hermanos, ¿qué haremos?” Pedro respondió: “Arrepentíos y bautícese cada uno de vosotros en el nombre de Jesucristo para perdón de vuestros pecados. Y recibiréis el don del Espíritu Santo. 

 Cristo nos llama a ser bautizados para que podamos recibir el perdón de nuestros pecados. El bautismo simboliza ser lavado en la sangre de Cristo, morir con él, ser sepultado y nacer de nuevo a una nueva vida.Romanos 6:3-4: ¿O no sabéis que todos los que fuimos bautizados en Cristo Jesús, fuimos bautizados en su muerte? Por tanto, mediante el bautismo fuimos sepultados con él en la muerte, para que, así como Cristo resucitó de entre los muertos por la gloria del Padre, así también nosotros vivamos una vida nueva.Seguimos la Biblia para comprender cómo debemos vivir nuestras vidas.Gálatas 2:20: Estoy crucificado con Cristo y ya no vivo yo, mas vive Cristo en mí. La vida que ahora vivo en el cuerpo, la vivo por la fe en el Hijo de Dios, que me amó y se entregó por mí.

Comunión:
El primer día de cada semana nos reunimos para adorar a nuestro Señor y Salvador Jesucristo. Durante este tiempo tomamos la comunión para recordar el cuerpo y la sangre de Cristo que fue sacrificado por nuestros pecados.Lucas 22:19:
Y tomando pan, dio gracias, lo partió y se lo dio, diciendo: Esto es mi cuerpo entregado por vosotros; Haz esto en mi memoria." 1 Corintios 11:26:
 Porque cada vez que comáis este pan y bebáis esta copa, la muerte del Señor anunciáis hasta que él venga.

Our Worship:
We believe that God calls us to worship him with our hearts and our voices. As such, we choose to worship without instruments (a cappella) and allow our voices and our hearts to lift up God in our praises. Colossians 3:16:
 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

Becoming a Christian

by Robert Sholl

Before we can respond to God, we must realize our lost spiritual condition:

  • Isaiah 59:2Your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, so that he will not hear.

  • 1 John 3:4 Every one that doeth sin doeth also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.

  • Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

Since we are sinners, we must realize that we cannot earn our salvation:

  • Ephesians 2:7-8That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

In order to be saved we must respond to God’s offer of grace and mercy. We must believe in God and in Christ Jesus through hearing his gospel:

  • Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

  • Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

  • Hebrews 11:6And without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing unto him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek after him.

  • John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

  • James 2:20-24 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith apart from works is barren? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son upon the altar? Thou seest that faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect; and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness; and he was called the friend of God. Ye see that by works a man is justified, and not only by faith.

We must repent:

  • Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all in like manner perish.

  • Acts 17:30 The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked; but now he commandeth men that they should all everywhere repent:

We must confess the name of Christ before men:

  • Matthew 10:32 Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven.

  • Romans 10:9 Because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:

Be baptized into Christ for the remission of our sins:

  • Mark 16:15-16And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned.

  • Acts 2:37-38 Brethren, what shall we do? And Peter said unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

  • Galatians 3:26-27 For ye are all sons of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ did put on Christ.

  • 1 Peter 3:20-21 That aforetime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water which also after a true likeness doth now save you, even baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the interrogation of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ;

Once inside Christ, live a life of faithful, loving, obedience to Christ:

  • Revelation 2:10Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of life.

If you have not obeyed the gospel, why not do so today?

  • Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on his name.
