What We Believe

We believe in one God, revealed in Scripture as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; John 14:9; John 1:1; Hebrews 1:3; Matthew 1:23).

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, and that it reveals God’s plan for salvation and growth in Jesus Christ (II Timothy 3:16).

We believe that everyone has worth as a creation of God, but that we have all sinned and failed to live up to God’s standard (Romans 3:23).

We believe that forgiveness of sins and eternal life are available because of Christ’s death on the cross, and His resurrection from the dead. (Ephesians 1:7).

We believe the Church is the body of Christ and exists to save those who are lost, and encourage and build up those who are saved (Ephesians 4:1-16).

We believe that one day, Jesus Christ will return and judge the world, and we will all answer for the deeds we have done (John 5:24-29; II Corinthians 5:10).

Placing Membership at Garden Park

If you wish to become a member, you may come forward at the invitation time after the sermon. Membership will be completed in one of two ways:

Confession of Christ and Baptism

If you are making a first-time commitment to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, we ask you to make a public confession of your faith and be baptized by immersion. Our minister would be happy to talk with you about making this decision.

Transfer of Membership

If you are already a member of a church, we ask you to state your faith in Christ as Lord and Savior. If you have not been baptized by immersion, we ask you to do so.

What’s Expected of Me?

Fellowship in the New Testament (koinonia) means “being as committed to each other as we are to Jesus Christ.” (I John 3:16) Garden Park membership means being involved in ministry, and being supportive in attendance, giving, prayer, and outreach. 

Communion - The Lord's Supper

We share in this remembrance of Jesus every Sunday. Jesus instituted this special time at his last gathering with His disciples. All who are committed followers of Christ are invited to partake with us.
