Southside Church of Christ Syracuse
Some Things You Should Know
We believe the Bible to be God's revealed will of faith and practice. All scripture is given by inspiration. II Tim 3:16; Holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. If Peter 1:20. We believe to do more than what the Bible teaches is too much and is therefore unwise.
We believe to do less than what the Bible teaches is not enough and therefore unsafe. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish ought from it, that may keep the commands of the Lord God which I command you. Deut. 4:2; Rev. 22:18
We believe that Christ founded one church. Matt 16:13-19. That Christ is head of His church. Col 1:18; Eph. 5:22-23.
We believe that there is only one body. Eph 4:4; Romans 12:5; I Cor. 12:13. We also believe that His one body is the church. Col 1:24; Eph 1:22-23.
We believe that Christ had one plan of salvation for all. We hear Him. Romans 10:17. We believe Him. John 3:16; Heb 11:6. We repent of sins. Luke 13:3-5, Acts 17:30. We confess Him. Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:10. We are baptized unto Him. Gal. 3:26-27; Mark16:16.
We believe that when one believes and is baptized he shall be saved. It is then that the Lord adds to the church those that should be saved. Act 2:47. We believe in following God's plan for worship. Acts 20:7. We sing without mechanical instruments of music. Eph. 5:19; Col 3:16. We pray. Acts2:42. We hear the preaching of the word. Acts 20:7. We give to God. I Cor. 16:1-2. We commune. Acts 20:7
We believe we should live soberly, righteously and Godly in this present world. Titus 2:1'1-12.
We believe that all who disobey the word of God will die and be lost and suffer the punishment of Hell's fire forever. Mark 9:43.
We believe that those who obey the word of God will be saved and will go to heaven to be with God, His Son, all the angels and saints of God forever. Matt. 25:31-46.
We believe preachers should preach only what is in the Bible. We should not add our opinions nor take from what God said. We believe that by the word of God we shall be judged. John 12:48. Rev. 20:12.
Our Mission is to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all mankind, offering hope, peace and love to those who are perishing and in need. We can allow them to live productive and righteous lives by the power of the Holy Spirit. As a body of Christ believers we will follow obediently God's word.
