- We Believe
- We at Longmeadow
see the main purpose of our church as:
- 1.) Sharing the
message of salvation by introducing people to our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ.
- 2.) Giving
opportunities for these same believers to grow and mature in the
faith by providing experiences of worship, teaching, ministry,
and training in the Christian life and discipleship.
- 3.) Building a
fellowship that will be receptive to taking seriously the whole
council of God as found in His Word. Follow the commands of
Jesus and "Go ye
therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of
the father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them
to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you."
- We Believe
- that the whole
Bible is the Word of God and is our handbook (guide) for living;
- That God is
Father, Son and Holy Spirit; that Jesus was born of a virgin and
was bodily raised from the tomb, is the only Way to the Father,
is the baptizer with the Holy Spirit, is seated at God's right
hand, will come again.
- that the Holy
Spirit is Comforter, Teacher and has come to empower the
believer for services;
- that the Church is
Christ's body here on earth and is composed of everyone who has
accepted Jesus and His rule by faith and committed his life to
- that Jesus
defeated Satan, our personal enemy, on the Cross and that in and
through Christ we also have the victory.
