What We Believe

STATEMENT OF FAITH

Seward Congregational Church is a member of the Conservative  Congregational Christian Conference and subscribes to the CCCC Statement  of Faith:

  • We believe the Bible consisting of the Old and New Testament, to be  the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God  written.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless  life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His  shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right  hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man regeneration by  the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose  indwelling power and fullness the Christian is enabled to live a godly  life in this present evil world.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they  that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto  the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.

 

COVENANT OF SEWARD CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH

“We are banded together as a Christian Church to maintain the worship  of God, to proclaim the gospel of Christ, to develop in men a  consciousness of their relations and duties to God and their fellow men  and to inspire them with love and truth, passion for righteousness and  enthusiasm for service. To this end we pledge our loyalty to Christ and  covenant with each other to strive to express His spirit in our  individual and corporate life; to live together as Christian brethren  and to submit ourselves to the government of this church; working,  giving, prating for its increase, its purity, its peace  and seeking in  every way to make it a power for the building up of the Kingdom of God”.
