Our Purpose & What We Believe
We believe that God has given us a unique purpose here at Union Grove Baptist Church which is to
Reach & Teach people how to live out the abundant life through Evangelism, Discipleship, Fellowship, Prayer, Ministry, Giving, & Worship.
We believe if we put these 7 functions into practice, the people who join our church family would experience the abundant life that Jesus promised in John 10:10 where he said, “I have come that you might have life, and have it more abundantly.”
That the Bible is the inspired, inerrant and authoritative Word of God for the Christian faith and living
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)
There is One Triune God, existing in three persons- God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit
(Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
That Jesus Christ is fully God Who stepped into human history as the God-man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed many miracles, died on the cross as our atoning sacrifice, was resurrected three days later, ascended back into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, and will return in glory and power to judge the living and the dead
(John 1:1-2; Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 4:5; Romans 14:9; 2 Timothy 4:1).
The Holy Spirit is a person Who will convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. The Holy Spirit is the supernatural agent of regeneration who indwells us and helps us lead a Godly life
(John 16:8-11; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18).
All people are lost sinners who must turn to Christ in saving faith and repentance in order to receive the free gift of salvation that was purchased by the shed blood of Jesus Christ on Calvary for the forgiveness of sins
(Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
