Our Statement of Purpose 

Marstons Mills Community church exists to glorify God.  The Christian life brings glory to God as it balances three primary movements:

Toward God:  We worship publicly and privately.  [Luke 10:27; John 4:24]  We seek spiritual maturity.  [Colossians 2:7]

Toward other believers:  We participate in fellowship and discipleship.  [Hebrews 10:23-25; Luke 14:27;  II Timothy  2:2]

Toward unbelievers:  We proclaim the gospel and demonstrate God's love that others may come to know Christ.   [Matthew 28:18-20;22:39]

 

Our Statement of Faith

The Word of God   The 66 books of the Bible are the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original writings.  The Bible is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.  [John 17:17; Romans 15:4; II Timothy 3:16,17;  II Peter 1:21]

The True God  God is an infinite and perfect Spirit in whom all things have their source, support and end.  [Genesis 1:1,2; John 4:24; Romans 11;36; Acts 17:28; Deuteronomy 6:4]  He has revealed Himself in three distinct persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each of whom is equal in every divine perfection.  [Matthew 28:19]

God the Father  The Father is the originator of the work of creation and the work of redemption.  [Psalm 2:7-9; Isaiah 63:16; Ephesians  1:3; Matthew 6:9]  He has sent into the world both the Son and the Holy Spirit.  [John 3:16; 14:16]

God the Son  Jesus Christ is God's only begotten son and is the exact representation of God. [John 1:14; 3:16;  Colossians 1:15]  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and died to pay the penalty  for sin.  [Luke 1:35; Hebrew 4:15; 7:25]  He arose from the dead and ascended to heaven where He intercedes for His people. [Matthew 28:7]  One day He will return again to earth.  [Acts 1:9-11]

God the Holy Spirit  The Holy Spirit comes from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.  [John 15:26; 16: 7-15; 14:26]  He regenerates, indwells, empowers, sanctifies, helps, teaches and guides all who believe in Jesus Christ.  [Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 3:16; Titus 3:5]

Salvation  Everyone is a sinner by nature and a violator of God's will by choice and therefore deserving condemnation.  [Romans 3:11,12,23; 5:12]  Through penitent faith in Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit individuals become children of God. [John 3:16-18; Isaiah 55:11; Ephesians 2:4,8-10; Titus 3:5-7; Hebrews 7:25]

 The Church  All regenerate individuals are members of the universal church of which Christ is the head.  [Matthew 16:16-18; Ephesians 1:22]  The local church consists of baptized believers who assemble for worship, spiritual edification and the work of reconciling the world to Jesus Christ. [Matthew 28:19, 20; Ephesians 5:19,20; Hebrews 10:25;  II Corinthians 5:18,19]

 The Ordinances  Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church which should be observed until He returns.  They are baptism and the Lord's Supper.  Baptism is the immersing of a believer in water symbolizing repentance, spiritual cleansing and one's identification with Jesus Christ in His death burial and resurrection.  [Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; 8:12;38,39; 18:8; 22:16]  The Lord's Supper commemorates Jesus' sacrificial death for our sins. [Luke 22:7-23; I Corinthians 11:23-34]

Christian Conduct  Christians live for the glory of God by growing in grace and by being transformed by the Holy Spirit. [Romans 15:6; II Peter 3:18; II Corinthians 3:18; 5:17]  The ministry of the Holy Spirit and the guidance of Scripture result in a lifestyle distinct form the world. [Hebrews 4:12; James 1:25]  Christians pursue pure character, righteous conduct and peace with one another.  [Ephesians 5:15; Matthew 25:23; I Peter 4:10; Romans 13:12-14; I John 1:9; II Timothy 2:22]

The End  Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return again to earth and establish His kingdom and the new heavens and new earth.  [John 14:3,6; Acts 1:11]  He will judge all people, rewarding His children with eternal life and condemning everyone else to separation with God: the endless suffering of eternal death.  [II Corinthians 5:19; John 3:18; 11:25; II Peter 1:11; 3:4,10; Revelation 4:11 20:11-15; 21:1]
