5. We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the
final authority for all matters of faith, truth, and life.

6. We believe human beings have been created in the image and likeness of God,
but every person has sinned and is in need of salvation.

7. We believe salvation comes only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ
who gave his life forthe sin of all mankind.

8. We believe the grace of Jesus alone is what saves us, but baptism is a
vital outward expression of our decision to follow Him.
9. We believe the Church is the body of Christ on earth, meant to be
his hands and feet to do his work in the world.
10. We believe Jesus instituted the practice of Communion for us to remember
and reflect upon the sacrifice He made for us on the cross. For this reason,
we participate in Communion each time we gather for worship.

11. We believe every human life is sacred from conception through death.

12. We believe the Bible teaches that God established the covenant of marriage
as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman.
Our purpose in stating these beliefs and values is to be clear about what we believe and
teach at Agape Christian Church according to our understanding of Scripture. Some of these
doctrines are essential to belief in the Gospel of Jesus. Others are simply what you can expect
to experience when you visit or participate in worship at Agape. Our ultimate goal is not to
divide, but to share the message of the Gospel and introduce as many as possible to Jesus
Christ so they can know His love, grace, and redemption.
