what to expect:

Gospel Light has been a beacon in the community for over forty years. We are a group of imperfect people, who serve a perfect God. Each service is an opportunity to come as you are to worship the Lord and leave spiritually different. You'll find traditional music and a conservative preacher who shares a message directly from the Word of God to help you grow in your relationship with Christ. Thank you for visiting our website today - and we invite you to join us this Sunday!

Beliefs:

THE WORD OF GOD

We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired word of God in its entirety written by men as they were moved by the Holy Spirit and that it is the sole authority for the Christian's faith and conduct. We believe the King James Bible is the preserved word of God for the English-speaking people. Psalm 12:6,7; 2 Peter 1:20, 21

THE GODHEAD

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that they are equal in every divine perfection. Genesis 1:26; I John 5:7

GOD THE SON

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of Mary, a virgin so that he might reveal God and redeem sinful men. He is both the Son of God and God the Son. Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:26-28; II Corinthians 5:21

ATONEMENT

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified on the merit of His shed blood. I Corinthians 15:1-4

SALVATION

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his finished work on Calvary. He is the only way of salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6

SECURITY

We believe in the eternal security of the believer. Their security rests in his finished work. All the redeemed are in his hands kept by his power and nothing can separate them from his love. John 10:28-29; I Peter 1:4-5; Romans 8:38-39

SECOND COMING

We believe in the blessed hope, the personal, pre-tribulation, pre-millennial, imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at which time the church will be gathered together unto him.

I Thessalonians 4:13-16; I Corinthians 15:51-58

THE CHURCH

We believe in the church local and visible. It is a congregation of baptized believers banded together for the worship and work of God. It is to be autonomous and responsible for propagating the gospel to the world. Acts 2:41-47

THE ORDINANCES

We believe that the scriptural ordinances of the church are baptism by immersion and the Lord’s supper. They are symbolic in nature not sacramental. I Corinthians 11:23-26

SEPARATION

We believe in personal and ecclesiastical separation. I Peter 1:15; 2 Corinthians 6:14-17
