EFCE About Us Header.png


  • The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.


  • In one God , creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


  • That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now High Priest.


  • That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.


  • That man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.


  • That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.


  • That water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.


  • That the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ over which He is head.


  • That only those who are thus members of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church.


  • That every local church has the right under Christ, who is Lord and Head of the Church, to decide and govern its own affairs.


  • In the personal glorious and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this “Blessed Hope” has a vital bearing on the life and service of the believer.


  • In the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment apart from the Lord.

Salvation in Christ

God created man and woman in His own image, and they enjoyed unhindered fellowship with Him. Adam and Eve fell through disobedience to God’s command. Sin spread to all and separated mankind from the all holy God. God sent His son Jesus to die for our sins and rise again. Through faith in Christ we can be forgiven and brought into right relationship with God again.


The Bible says that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” This means that every human being has sinned against the holy God and has thereby fallen short of the requirements for enjoying eternal life with God in heaven. This is an awful predicament in which to be, considering that the alternative to eternal life is eternal punishment in hell.


There is no in-between.

Thankfully, God has provided a way for us to be saved from this eternal punishment. So, once again, we ask, “Are you saved?” According to the Scriptures, there is only one way to be saved, and that is through Jesus Christ. God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus, to live a perfect, sinless life and to die on the cross to bear punishment for our sin – not for His own sin, but for ours. Three days after He was crucified, Jesus rose from the dead, proving that He was indeed the Son of God, the Savior of the world.

Repentant sinners are freely invited to put their faith in Jesus Christ and to call upon Him in order to be saved. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

If you have any questions regarding the message of salvation, please talk to Pastor Marlin or another member of the church. We would be glad to help you put this question to rest once and for all.
