FOOD FOR THOUGHT…

“One reason why some who call themselves Christians may be looking for some program in place of (or in addition to) Christ is that they have misunderstood the gospel and what it entails… Rather than recognizing their need for a savior to save them from their own sins, they may be looking for a savior who will save them from their circumstances and, or who will make life easy and pleasant.  They may have misunderstood the need to die to self and thought that Jesus was there to make them feel better about themselves, build their self esteem, and cater to their desires.  While Jesus meets every true need for the believer, and while life in Him holds a marvelous new dimension of peace with God and the hope of eternal life, all problems do not simply vanish.  Jesus being the answer to problems of living does not mean that He necessarily takes them away.  He gives strength and purpose, and He even uses problems to make a believer more like Himself.  Three well known sections of Scripture speak to this issue:  Rom. 5,1-5, Rom. 8,28-29, and 1 Corin. 10,13.  Christians who expect God to take away problems and change circumstances may begin to think poorly of God and even begin to blame Him for allowing bad things to happen They may resent God for letting them down.  Those feelings come from a misunderstanding of the character of God, the sinful condition of man, and the influence of the “prince of the power of the air” on the circumstances of this world.  Rather than getting angry with God or forgiving Him, which some wrongfully teach, Christians who have an erroneous view of God need to have their vision restored by the Word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit.  God is holy, pure, righteous, and full of compassion and mercy.  He has provided salvation for the lost through the death of His only begotten Son.  And He fulfills all His promises.”  (Martin and Deidre Bobgan)

Statement of Faith & Style of Ministry:  Calvary Chapel of Fredericktown is a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.   We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.  We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians. 

 In order to identify Calvary Chapel as conservative in theology and evangelical, we set forth this general statement of fundamental beliefs:

 1.  We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible,   authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings.

2.  We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

3.  We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, and in His personal return in power and glory.

4.  We believe that the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

5.  We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are unsaved unto the resurrection of damnation.

6.  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

 The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house ofIsrael, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house ofIsrael.” (Jeremiah 18:1-6)
