The following are the core beliefs of Locust Grove Mennonite Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
We believe that God is the one and only true God who sent his son, Jesus Christ, into the world for the salvation of the world. We believe all Scripture is the written word of God and is the final authority for faith and practice, with the New Testament fulfilling the Old Testament.
We believe man was created in the image of God, perfect and sinless, but who willfully disobeyed God. However, salvation is a free gift of God's grace based on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Those who receive God's gift of salvation by faith become Children of God secure in an ongoing faith expressed by Obedience to Christ.
We believe the church of Jesus Christ is the body of redeemed believers committed to Jesus Christ as Lord. The local church is a place for worship, fellowship, holiness, discipline, teaching and preaching the Word and prayer.
