what we believe

We believe:

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God, authoritative, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • There is one God, infinite in glory, wisdom, holiness, justice, power and love, eternally existent in three persons---Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • In the deity of Jesus Christ, Second person of the Godhead. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; lived a sinless life; performed miracles; through His atoning death, paid for the sins for the sins of the world; in His bodily resurrection; ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His future personal return in power and glory.
  •  In the Holy Spirit, third person of the Godhead. He eternally proceeds from the Father; convicts of sin; applies salvation; guides and comforts the believer; directs and empowers the Church in fulfillment of the great commission; and enables them to live a godly life.
  •  In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost---the saved to the resurrection of life, and the lost to the resurrection of damnation.
  •  In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  •  Believers are to be sanctified in habits, moral in character and godly in behavior.

our mission

Mission Statement and Purpose

 The means through which we seek to glorify God are:

  • Communicating the truth of God's Word through public proclamation;
  • Discipling believers by encouraging them to study the scriptures, devote time to prayer and fellowship with other believers, and emulate the life and character of Jesus Christ;
  • Educating men and women in the discovery and use their spiritual gifts for ministry in the Kingdom of God;
  • Evangelizing and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ locally and abroad;
  • Providing a holistic ministry to all by seeking to meet physical, social, mental and spiritual needs.

The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), the Greatest Commandments (Mark 12:29-31) and the proclamation of the in-breaking of the Kingdom of God (Luke 4:18-19) serve as key Biblical mission statements for Christians of all ages as we seek to faithfully respond to the call and model of our Lord Jesus Christ. The purpose of SFCC is to glorify God.
