Seekers FAQ

GOSPEL - A gospel is a writing that describes the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus. The word is primarily used to refer to the four Canonical gospels: the Gospel of Matthew, Gospel of Mark, Gospel of Luke, and Gospel of John. The term "gospel" refers also to the message itself of the four gospels or of the New Testament. The word gospel is a modern rendition of the old English phrase meaning good news. The fact that God came down in the form of man and died on the cross for our sins in place of us is indeed good news. Go Back »

JESUS - Jesus - As Christians, we believe that Jesus is the Son of God, part of the Trinity. What this means to us is that God came to this earth in the form of a man, in order to die on a cross and take our punishment. Jesus is often referred to as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world because of His death on the cross. It is important to our faith that we believe in Jesus' death and resurrection, because if not for that sacrifice we would still be lost in our sin. Go Back »

HOLY SPIRIT -The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Godhead or Trinity: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is fully God and comes to inhabit the believer forever when we accept Christ as our Savior, to guide us into truth, to teach us, and to help us carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ here on earth. It is through the guidance of the Holy Spirit that we are able to interpret Scripture and learn what God wants us to know from His Word. Go Back »

BIBLE - We as Christians believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, which came about by Holy inspiration. This means that even though men, starting with Moses and ending with the disciple John, wrote the 66 books contained in the Bible, they were inspired by God and guided by the Holy Spirit to put to papyrus those truths that God wanted us to know. The Bible is the Word of God made known to us, and is good for preaching, teaching, and instructing men and women in the truth. Go Back »

CHRISTIANITY - The Christian Faith is founded on Jesus Christ and His resurrection. Christians are followers of Christ and strive each day to maintain a relationship with him by living godly lives because of being filled and empowered by the Person of Jesus Christ through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The teaching of Christianity is unique in that God Himself instituted it. Go Back »

FAITH - The dictionary definition of faith is, "the theological virtue defined as secure belief in God and a trusting acceptance of God's will." For a Christian, this definition is not just words on a page it is a way of life. Faith is acceptance of what we cannot see but feel deep within our hearts. Faith is a belief that one-day we will stand before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Go Back »

SALVATION - There is only one way to Heaven, and that is through the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible says that Jesus died once for all that we may be saved. The Bible says that salvation can be found in no one else and not by works, lest any man boast. This means we must, through faith and belief in our hearts of what Jesus did for us, confess our sins to Christ and offer up to Him our lives as living sacrifices, at which time we are forgiven and enter into an eternal relationship with Christ. This is the only way to salvation. Go Back »
