"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,

baptizing them in the name of the Father,

and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,

and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."  

(Matthew 28:19)

As reflected in our name, we are an outreach church---to every man, woman, and child of any age.  We support the Lord's work here at home and all around the world.  We are also a church of warm friendship and fellowship.  Weekly we are challenged to search the Scriptures, be fed and grow in our walk with Jesus and each other.  We welcome all to "come and drink of the water of life", to "taste and to see that the Lord is good."
Hope to see you here!

What We  Believe

 

The Alliance Stand

How do you live your life so authentically that there is no question about what you believe? Some people call it their creed; others call it dogma or position. Basically, doctrine is the bedrock on which you build your beliefs—a body or system of teachings relating to a particular subject.

What The Alliance believes about God, how He relates to us, and how we relate to Him is foundational in its teachings. The Alliance wholeheartedly serves God and the people of His world, based soundly on the Bible. We live and die by these words and believe they bring the only life worth living—one wholly committed to the King Jesus.

Our Statement of Faith

There is one God, (Deuteronomy 6:4) who is infinitely perfect, (Matthew 5:48) existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19) Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man (Philippians 2:6–11). He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:34–38). He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, (1 Peter 3:18) as a substitutionary sacrifice, (Hebrews 2:9) and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (Romans 5:9). He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures (Acts 2:23–24). He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest (Hebrews 8:1). He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace (Matthew 26:64). The Holy Spirit is a divine person (John 14:15–18), sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer (John 16:13; Acts 1:8), and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment (John 16:7–11). The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:15–16).

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:27); he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature (Romans 3:23) are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians15:20–23). The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment(Revelation 21:8); and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss (Revelation 21:1–4).

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God (Titus 3:4–7).

It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly (1Thessalonians 5:23), being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service (Acts 1:8). This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion (Romans 6:1–14).

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body (Matthew 8:16–17). Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age (James 5:13–16).

The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church (Ephesians 1:22–23), which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations  (Matthew 28:19–20). The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Acts 2:41–47).

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life (1Corinthians 15:20–23) for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment (John 5:28–29).

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent (Hebrews 10:37) and will be personal, visible, and premillennial (Luke 21:27). This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service (Titus 2:11–14)  

 

Announcements

 

Wednesday Bible Study: We have just begun a new study: the well-known series from Focus on the Family on Christian apologetics, the Truth Project. How do you know what is true? Do you really believe that what you believe is really real? How will you help others ensnared by Satan's lies to be free? Come and be challenged! Or don't; Satan would be fine with that.
