Christian Living & Learning Center Basic Beliefs


·       Statement of Faith

- We believe in one God, the One who created heaven and earth and was made manifest* in Jesus Christ

-  We are guided by what we believe is the word of God (the bible), as written by man inspired by His Holy Spirit

- We accept the Apostle’s Creed, used by many churches, as written affirmation of our faith


This Church adopts the Holy Bible, King James Version, as our rule in our faith, practice and methods of operation.  No Bylaw or procedure shall ever outweigh the Scriptures.  


·       Church Covenant


We, the members of Christian Living & Learning Center, do hereby covenant with each other before God to:


Be family; to be committed to each other; to love, accept, and forgive each other until death or God’s call causes us to part.


Live in Jesus Christ and take His commands seriously.


Help one another grow toward Christian maturity by bearing one another’s burdens, encouraging one another, exhorting one another, praying for one another, confessing our sins to one another, speaking the truth in love to one another, admonishing one another, building up one another, teaching one another, comforting one another, submitting to one another, serving one another, patiently bearing with one another, being hospitable to one another, greeting one another, living in peace with one another, regarding one another as more important than ourselves, caring for one another, exercising our spiritual gifts to serve one another, being kind and tenderhearted to one another, being devoted to one another, accepting one another, forgiving one another, loving one another.


We invite fellow members to pray for us, teach us, correct us, or rebuke us, if necessary, in a spirit of gentleness and humility should we stray from our Lord’s commands, because the thing we desire most in life is to serve Christ. We voluntarily submit ourselves to one another and to the discipline of the church. Such discipline will always be for the loving purpose of restoration—restoration to fellowship with God and with the covenant community—and it will always be done in accordance with Matthew 18:15-22.


Bring honor to the body of Christ by maintaining a good testimony.


We enter into this covenant because we have the common purpose of obeying Jesus Christ, and because we believe that we need one another’s help to do this.


As believers, and disciples of Jesus Christ, we have entered into a covenant relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—with the God who revealed Himself in Jesus. Since the blessings and promises of the covenant have been freely extended and given to us, out of wonder, love, thanksgiving, and reverence, we hereby accept and take up the covenant responsibilities that go with such a privilege. This is our reasonable service, and we should do nothing less.


God helps us all! We rely on His grace and hold fast to His promise that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
