Statement of Faith
Amazing Grace Fellowship proclaims the Nicene Creed as our statement of faith. This 4th century creed has been able to not only stand the test of time, but has also served as standard that Christians from virtually every expression have believed. It is more than an intellectual checklist of doctrine; it is a confession of worship that forms us as the people of God and draws us together into the life of the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of Light; true God of true God; begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and became man. And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried. And the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; whose Kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
In one Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Our Worship Expression
When the people of God gather in worship, God is active. The Holy Spirit makes His presence known in the midst of our corporate worship. Declaring the reign of Christ into the atmosphere changes the atmosphere. We believe that one of the ways the Holy Spirit expresses this reign is through the orderly exercise of spiritual gifts. At the heart of our corporate worship is communion, which we receive nearly every Sunday.
Prayer is the language we communicate to God with – it’s our lifeline. Prayer is how we foster our relationship with God – it’s how we get to know God personally. Prayer is how we discover how we can participate with God – it’s how we fulfill His will here on earth.
We believe that the church is one big family, spanning the generations. Moreover, discipleship is a life-long journey of following Christ together — being formed as the people of God. Amazing Grace Fellowship is committed to each generation and every stage of life – from the youngest to the eldest.
We believe that every believer is privileged and also responsible to participate in God’s mission of redeeming and restoring His world. As a church, we believe we are called to announce in both word and deed the good news that Jesus Christ is Lord — here and now! This happens through local outreach and global missions.
