Arcadia Gospel Fellowship is a Bible-believing, Gospel-centered church dedicated to glorifying our triune God, building up believers for the works of ministry, and bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world.
God is the infinite, all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect, good, just, and holy Creator of everyone and everything. God is one in essence, but in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
God is Holy and fully deserving of Man's complete obedience and worship. Man is Sinful; our deeds, words, and thoughts fall short of giving God the glory and honor He is due. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior whose death on the Cross paid our penalty for sin and whose sinless and obedient life is credited to us. Salvation is received through Faith in Christ and His finished work and thorugh Repentence from Sin.
"All Scripture is breated out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, the the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." (2 Tim. 3:16-17 ESV). The Scripture is comprised of the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament. Scripture is innerant and infallible.
The Church is the collection of all believers, from all places and from all times, of Christ and His Gospel. But believers enter and experience the Church through local congregations. The Church is to reflect God's glory: (1) Back to Him in worship, thanksgiving, and prayer and (2) to the World through preaching, evangelism, and discipleship.
Baptism is the immersion of a confessing believer in water. This act of obedience reflects the believer's commitment to Christ and the Church's testament to the world of genuine acceptance. Baptism represents the washing away of sin, the death of the sinful man, the hope of an eternal resurrection, and that the believer is in Christ.
The Lord's Supper is for all believers in good standing with a Bible-believing church. This act is done in remembrance of Christ's sacrifice on the Cross and in anticipation of the feast celebrating the full union of Christ and His Church at the end of time. The Lord's Supper represents that Christ is in us.
