Union Grove Christian Church
How does one get saved?
Union Grove Christian Church is a family of believers who holds dear the following beliefs:
God—We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus—We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
Christ’s Return—We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.
Holy Spirit—We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.
Bible—We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.
Man—We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
Salvation—We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Eternity—We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.
Church—We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
Prayer—We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
What Do We Believe?
1. Jesus Christ-You must believe that he is the Son of God. That he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. That he lived a sinless and perfect life, died on the cross as a payment for our sins and was resurrected from the grave on the third day.
2. Repentance-We are all sinners and have come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23). We must confess our sins to God and repent of those sins.
3. Profession of faith-We must publicly profess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that we have put our faith and trust in him alone for our salvation.
4. Baptism-We must be obedient to the scriptures (Acts 2:38) and be baptized into Christ by immersion
At Union Grove Christian Church, it's our desire to reach people for Christ, bringing hope, encouragement, and joy through Biblical preaching and teaching of God's Holy Word. It is also our hope to communicate the scripture in such a way that people will grow in the Lord and understand His will for their lives in Christian love.
