Reaching Seekers and Building Believers
What we believe, as individuals and as a church, is of great importance. What we believe affects how we understand God and how we live with others and with ourselves. This is a church that welcomes every person, no matter where they are on their journey with God. What the church believes does not have to be what you believe in order for you to be a part of the life of this church. We believe God cares for each of us individually and as we honestly seek God He will graciously speak to us and help us understand Truth about Him. We exist to grow the Kingdom of God by reaching seekers and building believers. Having said all of that, you may want to know some of our important beliefs:
We believe God is active in this world, the Creator of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe God created each one of us, and had each one of us in mind even before we were born.
We believe that God loves us and had demonstrated that love clearly in Jesus.
We believe that Jesus is God Himself stepping into human history. He identified with us, communicated the heart of God to us, and offered His life to provide forgiveness for our sins. Jesus died, was buried, and then, by the power of God, defeated death and rose alive from the grave.
We believe the Bible has been given to us by God to help us understand God, life, and our place in the world.
We believe that our hope and future is found only in Jesus.
We believe Forgiveness and Eternal Life are gifts of God received by faith.
We believe we were created to love and serve God and others.
One of the great things about this church is that you do not have to agree with all or even most of what we believe as church. MLPC is a place to discover what Christians believe, what the Bible is all about, who Jesus is. We are always open for conversation and dialog about the important beliefs of Christian faith.
