"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
II Corinthians 5:17 KJV
The Union Chapel Church Belief Statement
We believe that there
is one true and living God.
The Sovereign God exists as a Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the
creator of all that exists.
(Genesis 1:1, 1:26 , John 1:1-3)
We accept by faith, according to the scriptures that Jesus is
the Christ the Son of the living God.
Our faith, substantiated by the scriptures, enables us to
embrace God the Holy Spirit who is with us and in us at the time of conversion.
We believe in the inerrancy of the scriptures. God breathed
(inspired) holy men to receive, and write His thoughts and intents for our
(2 Tim. 3:16-17, Ps. 119:105)
Because of the fall of man through the first man Adam, we
believe that man was rendered totally depraved, having to exist without the
benefit of right fellowship with God, and in need of an appropriate sacrifice
to satisfy God’s unsettled anger toward sin.
(Rom. 3:23 )
We believe, that Jesus was/is the only means by which mankind
can become restored to right fellowship with God.
(John 1:12 , 3:16 , 14:6, Romans 6:23)
We believe that there is a place of eternal life (heaven),
reserved for those who have received Jesus as Savior and Lord, and eternal
separation (hell). There is a hell which is reserved for Satan, his fallen
angels and those who reject the Lamb of God.
We the members of the Union Chapel Church believe that we, who
are born again, are recipients of God’s efficacious grace. We are “the church”;
that is the called out and redeemed, or the ecclesia.
We believe and accept as our mission as members of the local and
universal church, to go (witness) and make disciples. We are committed to
spreading the gospel message at home and abroad.
(Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8)
Our mission and passion is to see that the church remains the
church until Jesus returns.
(1 Thess. 4:16).
We endeavor to accomplish our mission through fellowship,
worship, discipleship and stewardship following the Kingdom principles
established in the scriptures and the example of the early church in
(Acts 2:41 -47, 4:32 -33)
The mission will be accomplished neither by our might nor human
powers of intellect, political persuasion or coercion, but by the Spirit of the
one true and Living God.
