As an emerging ancient-future church, we acknowledge that our Living
Faith heritage has deep roots
dating back to the pages of the Bible, which
were affirmed by the Early Church in the
Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed,
re-affirmed by the insights of the Protestant Reformers as summarized by the
Heidelberg Catechism, and given a fresh voice by churches in our
contemporary age.

The foundation for our belief  is the Bible, the inspired Word of God, which
is the final authority on all matters on which it speaks.

As the Bible teaches,
there is one God, Creator of the universe, who has
made Himself known to the world in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  
God created humans to live in  fellowship with Him, but  they chose to sinfully go
their own way creating  a way of life filled with sin, alienation and destruction.  
As a result, we need God's saving grace to merge our lives back into fellowship
with Him.  God provides that grace freely through the death and resurrection of
Jesus Christ,  our Lord.  

To receive God's saving gace all one has to do is merge their life with Jesus,
accepting His love and forgiveness, and personally making him their Lord and
Savior and God the numero uno of one's life.
We affirm with evangelical Christians across the globe that Christ has
instituted two sacraments: water Baptism and the Lord's Supper.  These play a
central role in our life together as a Living Faith Christian Community.  We will
celebrate both infant baptism and believer's baptism by sprinkling or immersion.
 The Lord's Supper will be celebrate the first Sunday of each month and on
other special occasions.
We invite you to explore for yourself the historic creeds and testimonies of
faith that ground us as a Living Faith Christian Community.
What We Believe
© 2010  - Merge: a Living Faith Christian Community.  All rights reserved.
We believe that to have a Living Faith, each person who seeks to
become a follower of Jesus Christ, must develop their own
authentic,
ever growing, personal Living Faith in God as informed by Scripture and
empowered by the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit draws people to merge with Jesus and empowers them to grow a
living faith that  yearns to serve others in Jesus' name.  The purpose of the
Church is to be a revolutionary movement that intentionally builds on ramps for
others so that they might experience the power of God's love and the new life
that is possible only when one's life is merged with Jesus.
The single most important thing that you can do
in your life is to merge with Jesus.  
Everything else falls into place from there!
