|Purpose of Good Shepherd Community Church
To spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its entirety among all people of the
earth, for salvation of the sinner and benefit of saints and up-building of the
Kingdom of God here on earth all things necessary to achieve these goals.
We believe in the only true God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, that these
three are one - the Father in the Son , the Son in the Father and the Holy Spirit
equal in essence or being with the Father and the Son.
We believe that this triune God created the heavens and the earth, and all that is in
them, visible and invisible; that He sustains, protects and governs these with
gracious regard for the good of man to the glory of His name.
We believe in Jesus Christ; that He is very God and man; that He became incarnate
by the power of the Holy Ghost and He was born of the Virgin Mary; that He is
Savior and Mediator of the whole human race, if they with full faith accept the
grace proffered in Jesus; that this Jesus suffered and died on the cross for us,
was buried, He descended into hell, rose again on the third day, ascended into
heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, to intercede for us; and that
He will come again at the last day to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit; that He is equal in being with the Father and the Son;
that He convinces the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; that
He comforts the faithful and guides them into all truth.
We believe that the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, that
it reveals the only true way to our salvation, that every true Christian is bound to
acknowledge and receive it by help of the Spirit of God as the only rule and guide
in faith and practice.
We believe in the holy Christian Church, composed of true
believers, in which the Word of God is preached by men divinely
called, and the sacraments are duly administered; that this
divine institution is for the maintenance of worship, for the
edification of believers, and the conversion of the world to God.
We believe that the Sacraments, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper are to be used
in the church, and should be practiced by all Christians, but the mode of Baptism
and the manner of observing the Lord's Supper are always to be
left to the judgement of each individual. Also, the Baptism of
children should be left to the judgment of believing parents.
