Beliefs


WE BELIEVE AT CAPRI CHRISITAN CHURCH

  •  The name “Christian” means ‘belonging to Christ’, a name acceptable to all , not divisive or sectarian.  it is used in the name because the congregation has no denominatinal affiliation, and desires to be know simply as a church belonging to Christ.  The church is a non-profit corporation, tax exempt, self-governing, and not subject to any other religious organization.
  • The Bible, accepted as the inspired message of God, is the basis for faith and practice.  If the Bible is clear on any matter, the congregation seeks to abide by it.  If the Bible is silent or not clear, we are free to have our personal opinion.

ORDINACES OBSERVED

  • The Lord’s Supper (Communion) is offered every Sunday in keeping with the example given in Acts 20:7 and the practice of the church for many years as noted by Church historians.  Anyone may partake, but worshipers are urged to keep in mind the message of the communion and not to partake insincerely.
  • The Baptism of those whose accept Jesus Christ as Lord is practiced as it was in the New Testament times
  • One Becomes a Member by having already received/or is ready to receive salvation BY God’s Grace: 1) THROUGH Faith (as the means) 2) IN Baptism (as the time) 3) FOR Good Works (as the result)
  • An Associate Membership is offered to those who live here only part of the time and wish to retain membership where they live the rest of the time.

Can we help you to become a Christian? The Bible teaches us that faith is the beginning place for a relationship with Jesus Christ. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that we must ‘believe that he exists and is a rewarder of those who earnestly seek him.‘ We are commanded to repent of our sins. Jesus said, ‘Unless you repent you also will perish.’ (Luke 13:3,5) In our faith we acknowledge that we believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, just as he claimed. (Matt. 10:32) We see this confession of faith first being spoken by Peter as he said, “You are the Christ, the Son of God.” (Matthew 16:24) We are to be baptized into Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:38. Following this we remain faithful even to the point of death. (Rev. 2:10) If we can help you in this regard please call upon us.

 If we can pray for you or help you in other ways, please let us know.
