We believe that the Bible is
the inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter
1:19-21). It was revealed to mankind as a guide for all
things having to do with our lives and how we worship God
(Psalm 119:105; 2 Peter 1:2-4). The Old Testament teaches
us how God set apart a people unto Himself in order to
bring Jesus, the Christ and Savior of the world (Galatians
3:22-25). The New Testament is the revealed New Covenant
of Jesus Christ (Jeremiah 31:31-34; John 12:47-48). It is
the whole, complete, and final revelation of God and the
pattern and guide for all things in this age (Galatians
1:8,9; 1 Corinthians 14:37; 1 Timothy 3:14-15). It is the
Bible that reveals to us the joyous plan of the gospel of
Jesus Christ by which we can be saved from our sins and
receive eternal life with God in the age to come (2
Timothy 3:14-15; Romans 1:16; 1 Timothy 4:8).
When you worship with us you
can expect a simple and friendly service focusing on
Scripture and based upon the pattern found in the New
Testament. We believe that the New Testament reveals how
Christians worshiped in the First Century, and we seek to
follow that pattern. In following this we sing songs of
praise and devotion to God (Colossians 3:16; Ephesians
5:19). We pray to God, in the name of Jesus (Acts 2:42;
John 14:13). We teach and study the Bible (Acts 20:7; Acts
17:11). Each Sunday we partake of the memorial of Jesus'
death, known as the "Lord's Supper" (Acts 20:7;
Acts 2:42; 1 Corinthians 11:20, 23-26). Finally, each
Sunday our members are given the opportunity to give back
to the Lord a portion of the material blessings which He
has given to us (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
Visitors are not expected to contribute. This is a
responsibility of the members here at Olsen Park.
The Bible tells us that when
Jesus came He promised to build His church (Matthew
16:18). The Greek word ekklēsia, which is
translated "church" refers to a body of people
called out for a given purpose. In His death, Jesus
purchased with His blood the "called out" people who look
to Him for salvation from sin (Acts 20:28). When this
glorious message of salvation was first preached, the
Bible tells us that the Lord added to this church those
who accepted and obeyed this message of the "gospel" or
"good news" (Acts 22:47). The Lord's church, as described
in the New Testament was not splintered and divided, but
was "one body" following
"one faith" (Ephesians 4:4-6). Religious division
was condemned (1 Corinthians 1:10). It is our aim to be
nothing more and nothing less than simply a congregation
of Christians who are members of the Lord's church. We are
not a part of any denomination. We are not Protestant,
Catholic, nor Jew—we are simply Christians.
