STATEMENT OF FAITH
Rock and River Congregational Christian Church
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the only Saviour and Mediator available to man.
We believe that, as a human being, we are in need of rescuing.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the exact representation of His Father,
and came to show us who the Father really is.
We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that this Trinity operates together to effect a full salvation
for any man who truly believes and openly confesses that God raised
Jesus Christ from the dead. This salvation is at every level and covers
every need of triune man, body, soul and spirit -
physically, emotionally and spiritually.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Agent that draws man to repentance
and operates as a counsellor, a helper, an advocate, an intercessor,
a strengthener and a standby in the life of the believer.
We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired and infallible written revelation of God
and is final authority in matters pertaining to faith and life.
We believe that signs and wonders should follow the anointed preaching of God's word.
We believe that every motivation of God in His dealings with man arises from the
heart of a Father in His quest for relationship with His sons and daughters.
We believe that faith operating in love is the life objective of each of our
members and the means by which we grow in relationship with our Heavenly Father and
fulfill our role as part of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in eternal life in the glorious presence of God and we believe
that presence can be experienced right now by faith.
WE BELIEVE THAT RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST MEETS THE DEEPEST NEED OF EVERY HEART
