STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word; that it was written by people divinely and uniquely inspired, that it is absolutely trustworthy and has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of humanity, that He hears and answers prayer and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, sinless in His life; making atonement for the sin of the world by His death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from God to convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement, and to regenerate, sanctify, and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ.
We believe that all people are by nature and by choice sinners, but that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in the Church – a living, spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and of which all regenerated people are members. We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches
We seek to grow as followers of Jesus through our Sunday morning gathering, weekday discipleship groups, church and outreach ministries, and personal relationships.
We are located at 459 Putnam Ave., Cambridge in the midst of MIT, Harvard, and BU. We have the privilege of welcoming many new people each year and we would be privileged to have you join us on this journey of growing into mature followers of Christ. While students, young adults, and internationals are an important component of our fellowship, we also have people of all ages including families, many with young children. We are thankful that we have all the generations represented in the church, from the cradle on up!
Having visited our website, we hope you will visit us in person. There are no virtual churches!
Our Sunday service is at 10:45 am followed by refreshments. We celebrate communion the first Sunday of the month and include a time for testimonies.
