Our Beliefs...

The fellowship of believers at 6th Avenue is affiliated with the Church of God Reformation Movement based at Anderson, Indiana.

This non-denominational movement of God has historically held to three core values. First, we teach and believe the whole truth of Scripture as the one authority with which believers guide their lives. Secondly, we teach and believe that all believers should live holy lives that are pleasing to God. Finally, we teach and believe in the unity of ALL people who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

We do not hold to creeds. Nor, do we think believers should ever divide over minor differences of doctrine or denominational disputes since all who believe in Jesus Christ are part of His one Church. However, we realize that by visiting this page, you probably desire additional information on our basic teachings, so we offer the following statement of essential truths of Scripture which we uphold and teach:

Ten Essential Truths of Scripture (Click Scripture to Lookup)

1) There is only one true God, who has expressed Himself in the trinity of persons known as God, the Father; God, the Son; and God, the Holy Spirit, and through whom all things were created.
    ( Genesis 1:1, John 1:1-18, Matthew 3:16-17, and John 16:7-15 )

2) The infallibility and authority of God's word.
    ( 2 Timothy 3:16 )

3) Mankind has free will, and was created perfect, but fell into death at the Garden of Eden, through Adam, due to his choice of disobedience and sin.
    ( Genesis 1:26-30; 3:1-7, Deuteronomy 30:19, Joshua 24:15, Psalm 1,
     and Romans 3:9-23 )
