OUR BELIEFS


We believe in the Bible as the inspired Word of God and final authority in all matters of Christian faith, life, and conduct.

We believe in a vital relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, that the only way of salvation and eternal life is through personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

We believe in the Church of God as described in the Bible, and that being a Christian makes you a member of God's church.

We believe in the ministry of the local church, and that it is the organized working force of Christ, united for worship, service, fellowship and study.

We are a Bible centered, Bible preaching church that believes in the leadership and direction of the Holy Spirit.

We believe in freedom in our worship services as we lift up the Lord in prayer, exciting Bible preaching, inspiring singing - both congregational and specials.

We believe in Holy Communion around God's table together, from which no one that is saved is excluded.

We believe and practice footwashing in accordance with the example set by our Lord himself at the Last Supper.

We believe in divine healing and it is a regular part or our services.

......it doesn't matter to us how you look, where you've been, what you were or what you are

WE CARE ABOUT YOU!!!

OUR SLOGAN

We have adopted for our church slogan, "The Road Leads Home." Bonnie is a small community church, situated in a rural community. People may leave the area because of work, or school, etc., but they always come home! One writer has said, "Home is the place that when you get there, they have to let you in." We feel that way here at the church. You can feel loved here - no matter who you are, what you were, or how you dress - kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, and stay - you're home. And of course, in a spiritual sense, the road eventually will lead to our heavenly home, and that's why we're here!
