Beliefs & Leadership
What kind of church is this?
What denomination is your church?
This is a question that is asked a lot. Lamar Christian Church is a part of the Restoration Movement that began in the mid 1800's. This was not a movement to create a new denomination, but rather an effort to restore the Church as described in the New Testament. The New Testament Church is One! For the church of today to be one, all of Christendom must, of necessity, return to the Divine Pattern as found in the New Testament.
The Head of the New Testament Church is CHRIST JESUS. (Eph. 1:22;5:23, Colossians 1:18)
The Headquarters of the church are in HEAVEN. (This is where the Head is) (Mark 16:19, 1 Peter 3:22)
The New Testament plan of Salvation:
1- The Gospel is to be preached. (Mark 16:15-16; Rom. 1:16)
2- Hearing the Gospel results in FAITH. (Rom. 10:17; Mark 16:15; Hebrews 11:4)
3- Faith leads to REPENTANCE (Acts 2:38; 16:31-33)
4- Repentance creates a desire to CONFESS Jesus as Lord. (Matt. 10:32; Rom. 10:9-10)
5- Confession prepares one for BAPTISM (Acts 8:36-38)
a- Baptism is for remission of sins. (Acts 2:38)
b- Baptism gets one "into Christ". (Gal. 3:27)
c- Baptism is where the blood of Christ is apllied. (Rom. 6:3-4---compare with John 19:34)
d. Baptism is a burial (immersion). (Col. 2:12)
e- Baptism, according to God's Word, is essential.
6- THE BAPTIZED BELIEVER is added to the Lord's Church (Acts 2:47) and is therefore a CHRISTIAN. (Acts 11:26)
7- The Christian is to live a life that exemplifies Christ. (Rom. 6:4; 12:1-2; 2 Cor. 5:17)
8- The CROWN OF ETERNAL LIFE awaits those who remain FAITHFUL unto the end. (2 Tim. 4:7-8; Rev. 2:10)
