What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Peter 1:19; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Psalm 19:7)
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22; 2 Cor. 13:14)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus 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. (1 John 5:20; Matt. 1:23; Heb. 4:15; Matt. 19:26; 1 Cor. 15:3-4, 13, 16; Mark 8:31; Titus 2:13)
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (John 3:3-5; Titus 3:5; Eph. 2:1-5)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 14:17; 1 Cor. 6:19-20)
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. (Dan. 12:2; John 5:28-29; Rev. 20:12-13)
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom. 15:5-6; Phil. 1:27; 1 Cor. 12:12-13)
Message to the Congregation of SACC ~ Pastor Carl
Year’s ago I read an article that talked about men taking on tasks that traditionally belong to women such as baking, sewing, nursing, and so many more. It also discussed women that engaged in activities we normally think of a man as doing such as mechanics and bull riding. The article talked about how the tasks had a different flare when traditional roles were switched, but with a new beauty. If I remember correctly, at the time, Rosey Grier, a football player, was used as an example for his love of needlepoint. The punchline of the article has often come to my mind since I first read that article in the mid 1980’s:
“They may not know how to do it right,
but they don’t know how to do it wrong, either.”
To my wonderful church family and friends, we are all facing a world we’ve never faced before. In your home and niche of life, you are facing a situation you did not choose. No matter our personal opinions on how our leaders and society are handling the situation with corona virus and now the protests and riots, we are faced with questions in how to respond to situations we never imagined. Now a thousand questions are thrust upon us. Our priority is to pray for those that are directly effected. Let’s pray for our families, our neighbors, our schools, our community, our state, our nation, and our world. Every level has its own needs and challenges. Don’t neglect your own household either. Many decisions are out of our control, but we do have choices in our circle of influence in how to respond. I find the truth of that old article I read to be encouraging right now: I don’t know how to find a perfect balance in doing and thinking everything right, but I don’t know how to do it wrong, either.
Keep on going with confidence. Even a smidgeon of confidence in Christ is enough. Keep on believing in Christ. Keep on in the faith, looking to the Lord for guidance and truth. To Him be glory forever and ever.
Decisions are being made weekly in our church family regarding the details of the moment. Many decisions take place behind the scenes and involve technical issues. When to start up activities and what format to use are constant questions. Our greatest desire is to not get lost in the mechanics. We must never forget the umbrella purpose of glorifying Jesus Christ. Pray for our church families and those who are called to lead the way forward. We may not how to do it right, but my prayer is that if we go forward with a sincere heart and desire to glorify Christ, we can’t get it wrong either.
Thank you for your love and patience. Thank you for all the generous continued support. The Lord is good. He is amazing. No long term decisions can yet be made, but at least we are now meeting on Sunday with limitations.
