About what we Believe:
- The Bible is the WORD of God — inspired truth. It shows the love of God in action through His family and creation.
- God is one God in three persons — Father, Son, & Holy Spirit; Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier.
- Jesus is the Savior who died to save the world from sin.
- A person is saved (justified), not through merit, but only by God’s grace, through faith in Christ.
- Repenting means regretting one’s sins and asking for Christ’s forgiveness and guidance.
- The church is all those people who accept and believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior.
- Baptism, a sacrament, establishes new life in a person. And in this act, the family of faith honors the relationship between God and His child.
- The Lord’s Supper, a sacrament, is the body and blood of Christ given in the holy meal of bread and wine. Holy Communion is open to all people who believe that Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior.
- The creeds are statements of belief, not additions to the Bible. They summarize the Bible’s teachings.
Thus, we believe and teach that a person is saved only by the grace of God through faith in Christ. In addition, we know that the church family has never been, nor will ever be perfect. However, its shortcomings cannot deter us from our purpose as God’s primary place of love where we are challenged to change the world. We know that we were created by God to be with other people to be God’s family; this is modeled throughout the Bible. Thus, the church is not a corporation or club. It is a new family created by the resurrection of Jesus Christ that expresses itself as a community of faith in Christ and bonded together by His blood. The Good Shepherd Family takes seriously our role to serve our community and exist as a place that offers people love, hope and purpose, even as we challenge people to discover and live a Christ-centered life.
