What we believe is important to us. We believe that our beliefs should be consistent with God’s Word and with the historic Christian faith. Thus we subscribe to that which Jesus, His Apostles, and the universal church throughout the ages has taught and confessed.
We confess with unity the orthodox creeds of the early church: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Athanasius Creed.
We confess with unity the Five Solas of the Protestant Reformation. Our final authority of our faith is in Scripture alone (Sola Scriptura) and our justification comes not by works, but by grace alone (Sola Gratia) through faith alone (Sola Fide) on account of Christ alone (Solus Christus). As Christians, we believe we must do all things for the glory of God alone (Soli Deo Gloria)!
We affirm with unity the historic Protestant catechisms and confessions used in churches over the centuries, including the Three Forms of Unity (the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort, and the Heidelberg Catechism) and especially the Westminster Standards (the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Westminster Shorter Catechism, the Westminster Larger Catechism, the Directory of Public Worship, and the Form of Church Government.) We also acknowledge the traditional confessions of other Protestant denominations such as the Thirty-Nine Articles, the Book of Concord, The Baptist Confessions, and others consistent with the beliefs of the Protestant Reformation. We believe these historic confessions are in agreement in the essentials of Christianity. Where there are nuances, we practice liberty, but in all things charity.
In Matt. 28, Jesus gave the church the Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations. In Acts 1:8, Jesus said to His disciples that they would “receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on [them]; and [they] will be [His] witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” In view of Jesus’ words, our mission is to bring the Gospel to the nations and make followers of Jesus. We desire to spread the Gospel throughout Seoul and all of Korea and to the ends of the earth. Through our church, we hope to participate in the Great Commission by providing a safe and friendly place to worship and fellowship for Koreans, Kyopos and foreigners.
Fellowship & Ministries
If you are interested in fellowship or in serving the church or giving to your neighbor, we have various opportunities for you to get involved. May God bless you with church community and opportunities to use your God-given resources and talents for His glory.
We are currently going through the book of Romans. We meet after the English service (and lunch) in room 1207 at 1:30PM. All are welcome! (We are currently meeting 2 times a month, but we hope to meet more frequently in the near future.)
In a cozy environment, we meet at Pastor Joshua’s house on Saturdays in the late afternoon. Join us for in-depth study of the Bible (bring all your burning questions!) and prayer and good fellowship with food, friends, and fun!
After the church service, at 12:40ish, we head down together to the cafeteria to share a meal together. This is a great opportunity to fellowship, engage in conversation and get plugged in with other church members. Join us for a meal with other brothers and sisters in Christ.
We confess that we are a somewhat shy group. We, however, want newcomers to feel welcomed at our church. We know that our Welcoming Team can help those who are new feel at home at our church. We are currently looking for more people to join the welcoming team.
Our choir plays an important role in our worship service. They help lead the congregation in worship in reverence and in awe. We invite anyone interested in joining our choir.
Our praise team leads us in praising God for the first 10 to 15 minutes of our service. Our team is not flashy or showy; instead we praise God that we can lift Him up and not ourselves through reverent songs that uplift what God has done for us through His Son.
FIND YOUR FAITH
We are a body of believers that desire to praise and worship God in spirit and truth and in reverence and awe. We admit we are not a church full of cool, trendy, and hip people. We are a church of humble, lowly outsiders; but we rejoice because Christ – through His Gospel -- accepts the alienated, the weak, the poor, the rejected, the disabled, the suffering and the stigmatized as His disciples. As Christ has brought us – wretched sinners – from the outside into His family, we gladly invite you with open arms to join our small, modest family to receive God’s love, grace, mercy and forgiveness. No matter your age – young or old – your ethnic background or even your English-speaking level, you can find a home here. We hope God leads you to our church!
