Who We Are

Liberty Church, founded in 1989, is a Bible-based community of believers that values tradition and embraces the contemporary. We are committed to helping you grow, live and thrive in your relationship with Jesus. We offer ministry opportunities designed to meet the spiritual needs of every member of our church family, no matter how young or old.

What We Believe

We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, the Old Testament, and the New Testament (II Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12: I Peter 1:23-25; and II Peter 1:19-21). The Bible is our basis of truth.

We believe in one God that is revealed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 3:16, 17: 28:19 and John 17).

We believe that man, in his natural state, is a sinner, lost, undone, without hope, and without God (Romans 3:19-23, Galatians 3:22, and Ephesians 2:1, 2, 12).

We believe that Jesus is the physical manifestation of God meaning that He is both divine and human (Luke 1:26-38: John 14:1-3: Acts 2:36, 3:14,15: and Philippians 2:5-12).

We believe in the saving power of the Blood of Jesus and His imputed righteousness (Acts 4:12, Romans 4:1-9 & 5:1-11, and Ephesians 1:3-15).

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ (Luke 24:39-43; and John 20:24-29).

We believe that Christ Jesus ascended to the Father and is presently engaged in building Heaven and interceding for the saints (John 14:1-6 and Romans 8:34).

We believe that Christ Jesus will return to this earth in his visible body to rapture His Church (Bride) and judge the world (Acts1:10, 11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18: II Thessalonians 1:7-10: James 5:8: and Revelation 1:7). (It is not necessary that we all believe alike concerning whether He is coming before, during, or after the Great Tribulation).

We believe that salvation results in regeneration of the person and only occurs after one repents towards God for their sins and maintains a personal, heartfelt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This salvation is entirely by the Grace of our Lord and not of our works. Works are excluded except as FRUIT of salvation (Acts 3:19, 20: Romans 4:1-5: and Ephesians 2:8-10).

We believe the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a body of believers who have been baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Under recognized, delegated authorities, these believers assemble to worship, carry forth the Great Commission, and minister as the Holy Ghost leads (Matthew 16:18, 28:19, 20; Acts 2:40-47: Ephesians 5:22-32: and I Timothy 3:15).

We aspire to act as the early disciples did and seek to live life separated from the world and unto Christ while upholding standards of conduct which exalt our Lord and His Church (Romans 12:1-3, II Corinthians 6:17, Galatians 6:14, Ephesians 5:11, and Colossians 3:17).

We believe the Scriptures clearly set forth the doctrines of eternal punishment and Hell for the unsaved and eternal bliss and Heaven for the saved (Matthew 25:34 & 41& 46, Luke 16:19-31, John 14:1-3, and Revelation 20:11-15).

We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third part of the Trinity whose purpose is to redeem man, convict man in sin, regenerate the repentant believer, guide the believer into ALL truth, and indwell and give gifts to believers so that they may minister as Christ would to men. The manifestations of the Holy Spirit recorded in I Corinthians 12:8-11 operate in present-day churches which yield to the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 11:13; John 7:37-39: 14:16, 17: 16:7-14: and Acts 2:39-47).

We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, is for all believers as promised by John the Baptist (Matthew 3:11) and Jesus (Acts 1:4, 5, 8) and Peter (Acts 2:38-41); was witnessed by the early disciples of Christ (Acts 2:4: 10:44-47: and 19:1-6); and is evidenced by many present-day disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that God uses doctors, medicine, and other material means for healing. We also affirm that divine healing may be provided in a similar manner to the Atonement (Isaiah 53:5) by having elders (James 5:14-16), believers (Mark 16:18), and other anointed persons lay their hands on the sick in prayer (I Corinthians 12:9) or by a direct act of receiving this provision through faith (Mark 11:23).

We believe that the New Testament Church should be apostolic in nature and is governed by delegated authorities. When it is deemed best for the life of the church and in alignment with the testimony of the Lord, these authorities may discipline, in the spirit of love, any member who departs from the doctrines set forth in these Articles or whose conduct is contrary to the spirit and practice of the church.

We believe that the two ordinances of the church are water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the immersion of a person in water in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Matthew 3:15, 16; 28:19, 20: Acts 8:38; and Romans 6:1-4). This act is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Similarly, the Lord’s Supper is a memorial of the death, resurrection, and Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (Section 302, Luke 22:13-20).

The Apostles Creed

“I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.”

 

Nicene Creed

“We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate from the Holy Spirit. and the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father [and the Son], who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy *catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

 *catholic here means ‘universal’ and does not refer specifically to the Catholic church.
