Copyright 2016 Grace Bible Fellowship
grace bible fellowship doctrine:
We believe there is only one living and true God revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - the exact same in substance, equal in power and glory.
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, fully God and fully man.
We believe the death of Jesus Christ was sacrificial and substitutionary.
We believe in the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from among the dead and in His bodily ascension into heaven.
We believe in the personal and imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to receive His church and to set up His kingdom upon the earth.
We believe that all mankind by nature are sinners and separated from God and the Lord Jesus Christ and that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ.
We believe in the lifelong, personal abiding of the Holy Spirit in every true believer in the completed work of Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are God breathed and are the inerrant and infallible Word of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting bliss of the saved and the everlasting suffering of the lost.
We believe there are two ordinances, Believers Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper, which are encouraged for all Christians who put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Our desire is to glorify God by being a Christ centered New Testament style church as described in Ephesians 4: 11-15
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
