These are they who have to turn the world upside down
Jesus is the Christ, Son of the Living God!
This is our creed.
Below you will find our Christian values and beliefs. These serve as the foundation of who we are in Christ and what CGM believes and has built upon.
The Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God, and our only guidebook for faith and practice..
That there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In Christ as our Divine Lord and Master.
In the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, preaching, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father to make intercession for us, and, His personal return in power and glory.
The baptism and the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian can manifest the gifts and fruits of the Spirit.
In water baptism as a post salvation picture of our spiritual death, burial, and resurrection.
Celebrating the Lord’s Supper (communion) together as a remembrance of HIs body and blood given for us in covenant.
The personal, physical, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ to the earth and the consummation of all things.
Each person can directly approach and maintain a personal relationship with God.
The independence of the local church
In the equality of the congregational government
A worldwide program of missionary fervor and evangelism.
Those who profess Jesus as Lord and Savior will have eternal life in Heaven with the Father, and those that do not will have eternal life in Hell.
● Biblical marriage between one man and one woman.
Our first example of a Godly marriage was that of Adam and Eve. They are our fore parents, and they are the example of marriage that we are to follow. One man, and one woman, standing side by side, as Eve was formed of Adam’s rib, and formed from his side. That is our example of marriage (Gen 2:21-24).
● Biblical gender and sexuality.
There are only two genders, male and female. There is only one righteous sexuality, heterosexual, so that the reproduction of Godly children can continue to fill the earth.
● The right to life.
Every life has meaning, and every life has a purpose. Abortion and murder are no different. Both are taking the life of someone, and everyone has the right to live.
● All ethnicities are to be equally valued and esteemed.
The church is not made up of black, white, Hispanic, Indian, Chinese, etc. The church is the body of Christ. We are spirit beings wrapped in flesh, belonging to one Father, God Almighty, therefore, there is no ethnicity that should be belittled or not valued. Each person is deserving of respect, kindness, patience, mercy, and grace. God loves us all, we are to do the same.
● Christian Education
Raising up a child in Christian education is raising the child in the way they should go, therefore, when they’re older, they won’t depart from it (Prov 22:6).
● Worship and preaching led by the Holy Spirit
You cannot worship or preach without the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that reveals to us God’s Word, His plans, His heart. How can one sing or preach about God if we do not know Him? (1 Cor 2:10-12) Jesus made the way for us to know God, the Holy Spirit, who is God’s spirit, helps us to get to know God, therefore He is vital in everything we do.
● Corporate Prayer
The Bible tells us that if two or more gather together in the name of God, He will be in our midst (Matt 18:20). Corporate prayer is powerful, and valuable, and it is needed as a church.
Missions work is a type of evangelism the church must take part in to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is beneficial to each soul, in that it teaches us the value of our faith.
