What We Believe
In these days of doubts and uncertainties, we at The Christian Church of Los Alamos have confidence that has a good plan that when followed expresses love. We believe that God still communicates that plan to us through His Word, the Bible. And we believe that it is easy to understand because the Creator is able to make Himself understood. We have confidence, therefore that the ultimate expression of God’s will is in the Bible, supremely in the person of Jesus Christ, whom we confess to be God’s Son, our Savior and Lord who gave His life as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
We welcome to our fellowship every person, regardless of previous affiliation, who accepts Jesus as the Christ, and who will share a willingness to conform their lives and practices to the guidance of the Scripture. In the essentials of faith clearly expressed in its pages, we seek unity of conviction. On issues where Scripture does not give direction, we seek liberty for each person. In our relationships with each other, we advocate love and trust.
The adventure of discipleship has led us to some practices that may seem novel to Christians more bound by church tradition. It has led us to a weekly observance of the Lord’s Supper, to limiting baptism to those old enough to make a personal commitment of faith for themselves, and to the dramatic and ancient practice of baptism by immersion---an unmistakable burial and resurrection with Christ.
When one accepts the good news of Christ, they discover all that they need to make it through life, and all that they need to be prepared for eternity. In Christ is met all of our ultimate needs for a sense of significance, meaning, and eternal purpose. In Him as well is met our need for acceptance, love, and freedom from guilt. This liberating gospel becomes the wellspring from which our service to God through the ministries of our church flow. We reach out to our community in His name with His love that they too may encounter the good news.
At the Christian Church, we practice the principle of the ministry of all believers, for God’s Spirit indwells and gifts each one. We encourage, train, and support every member to be faithful followers and servants of Jesus Christ. As a result, we believe you will find a fresh and vital kind of Christian faith here. You will also find a vigorous church life in which you and your family can get involved. Your growth and development in Christ is our principal concern. Let us know how we can help you!
And now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen
