How We Came By Our Beliefs

 

At PGCC we strive to live according to God's will revealed in His Word.

God's Word is the core of our belief.

We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere, and organized into local assemblies, called churches.

  • We believe the Bible teaches that every Christian should be an active member of a local church.

  • We believe that the Elders of the church are the overseers of its affairs and the shepherds of its members; that they are the final interpretive authority of the Bible's meaning and application for the church; and that they are responsible for the oversight, instruction, edification, discipline, and restoration of the church members.

  • We believe that the Bible instructs church members to:

  • Meet together regularly for fellowship, worship, teaching, and the Lord's Supper.

  • Use our natural abilities and spiritual gifts to serve one another.

  • Love one another, bear with one another, accept one another, and forgive one another.

  • Seek unity, agreement, and peace with one another.

  • Encourage and build up one another.

  • Bear one another's burdens and prayer for one another.

  • Spur one another to love and good deeds.

  • Submit to the authority of the elders of the church.

  • Support the church financially.

  • Pursue personal holiness and obedience to God's Word.

  • Strive together to fulfill the Great Commission.
