"To know, worship and obey God according to the scriptures"

The Hesed Christian Fellowship

Declaration of Faith

We believe:

    The Scriptures (the 66 canonical books known as the Old and New Testament) are infallible, and are the supreme and final authority on all matters of faith and practice

    There is one sovereign God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a life of perfect obedience, and died on the cross in the place of sinners, bearing God's punishment for their sin. He rose from the dead and in his resurrection body ascended into heaven. He is seated at the right hand of the Father, where He is the only Mediator between God and men; He will come to earth again, personally and visibly, in glory at the end of time.

    The Holy Spirit indwells every believer and is the source of their assurance of salvation, and power.

    To receive God's free gift of salvation, one must repent of sin, believe in Jesus Christ and submit to His Lordship.

    All Christians are priests, in that they have direct access to God through Christ, yet the Christian life is, as well, a participation in the corporate spiritual life of a local community of believers.

    The local church will be involved in public acts of worship including the Breaking of Bread, Bible teaching and instruction, fellowship and evangelism.
