Our Statement of Faith
Cedar Grove Christian Church is a non-denominational fellowship of believers who seek to follow Christ and wear His name. The foundation and focus of our ministry is Jesus Christ alone.
We believe that the Bible is our authority for faith and life.
We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, without error, given to us so that we may know and understand the truth of God and His love.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three distinct personalities; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – each possessing all the attributes of Deity. God created us to have fellowship with Him, but we have alienated ourselves by being sinners. As a sinner, we need God’s saving grace.
We believe Jesus Christ to be the Messiah, the Savior, the Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, and was raised from the grave. He will personally return and victoriously reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
We believe that faith in Jesus Christ requires repentance from our sinful life, confession of our faith before witnesses, obedience to the Word of God in baptism. Baptism is in the form of immersion demonstrating our union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of our sins so that we may have the gift of the Holy Spirit..
We believe that everyone who accepts Christ as their Savior will receive the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as Comforter, Guide and Advocate on our behalf. God gives gifts to both men and women through the indwelling Holy Spirit empowering them to grow in holiness and equipping them for the service of Christ and the ministry of the Church.
