Statement of Faith

We believes that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ in the conception of His body by the Holy Spirit and His birth by the virgin Mary, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone for those who have repented and accepted Christ by faith, who are then declared blameless. In Christ, the believer’s nature is transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit, giving the believer the desire to obey His Word.

We believe that the Holy Spirit resides in believers, guiding them, empowering and gifting them for service, and producing in their lives the character of Christ.

We believe that sanctification is the lifelong process, begun by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation, in which the believer is restored to God’s intended purpose.

We believe at the return of Christ, the bodies of the redeemed dead will be raised and living believers will be changed to have immortal bodies like Christ’s

We believe that man was created by God and not by any accidental or spontaneous process. He was created in the image and likeness of God.

We believe the Biblical account of the fall of man. Because of Adam’s fall, death passed to all men and sin entered into the world. Each person stands guilty before God and is forever condemned unless he is born again.

We believe the church of Christ consists of all Spirit-regenerated believers. We believe that water baptism is to be administered to believers only… those have received Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

We practice immersion in water and grant permission to our Pastors to use other means when requested by the candidates. The Lord’s Supper shall be observed by the church. The Lord’s table should be open to all believers who are in the right relationship with God, regardless of denomination.

We believe that marriage is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman as ordained in creation by the Creator, set forth in the Word of God. See Genesis 1:2. We believe that apart from this there is no other “marriage” recognized by God, His Word, or His Church (see Addendum: The Sanctity of Marriage). Therefore, any person or persons seeking the ordinance of marriage who do not adhere to the command of Scripture shall not be married in the Flack Church or by any staff member of the Flack Church.
