THE BELIEFS OF FREE GRACE EVANGELICAL CHURCH IN BRIEF
First of all we believe in One God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the One who created us. We are responsible to Him. He is our Judge, the Ruler of all and Saviour for all who trust in Him.
We believe the Bible is God’s Message Book telling us what we need to know about Him and all people.
The Bible is infallible, without any errors, our authority in all matters spiritual and moral.
We believe that man and woman were originally created perfect. They disobeyed God’s command to not eat of the one forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden so becoming sinners. So all generations are corrupted by evil desires.
We believe Jesus existed as a man but was and is God. We believe the good news that God is able to forgive us all our wrong and make us acceptable in His sight. Jesus paid the penalty, through His death on the cross, that was due in the eyes of God our Judge, for the disobedience of all who put their faith in Him.
Jesus rose again so that His people are made right with God. Jesus is the only Mediator between God and us. We believe that nobody can do anything to cancel out God’s record of sins. God does this of His Free Grace and Mercy. Only when a person repents of his/her sins asking Jesus to forgive his/her sins and putting his/her trust in Him can he/she be made right with God.
In conclusion those who believe the above, repent of their sins and depend on Christ for salvation are welcome to apply for Believers’ Baptism in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and remembrance of Jesus death in the Lord’s Supper. We believe there is no change in the bread and the fruit of the vine nor can Christ be sacrificed or offered again. These two Ordinances do not save a person. We are evangelical because we obey Jesus’ Last Great Commission to tell others the good news that salvation on God’s Great Judgement Day is only for those who in their lifetime turned to Jesus.
We do not claim to be the only true Church. Christ saves all who truly repent of their sins and depend on Him alone for salvation. He makes these members of His true Church worldwide in every generation. Jesus is the foundation and the Head of His true Church. We rejoice in being members of Christ’s Church worldwide.
Jesus said “I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18. And “Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:20. Christ has saved us to live for His glory and be His ambassadors in this world. “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20 We as a local Church obey God’s command to proclaim God’s free grace and free offer of salvation through HIS SON OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
