Frequently asked Questions about Agape Christian Church
What Denomination are you?
We do not belong to any denomination at all. We are simply an independent group of Christians committed to serving the Lord. But while we do not have any obligation to an agency or denominational hierarchy, we are affiliated with other independent churches known as “Christian Churches/Churches of Christ.
“What does your Church believe?
To Put it simply, we believe the Bible. We teach that the Bible is the authoritative, inspired Word of God. And therefore we make it our goal to teach and practice what ever truths the Bible sets forth. Take our doctrine of Christ as just one example. We teach simply what the Bible reveals about Jesus… That He is the virgin-born, divine Son of God who died for our sins, rose from the dead, and will return for eternity.
Why Do you have Communion Each Sunday?
This is just another example of our desire to follow the pattern we find in the Bible. Acts 20:7 tells us that the early church gathered together on the first day of the week to break bread. So we continue this pattern by offering the Lord’s Supper every Sunday to every Christian believer.
What are your views on Baptism?
Here again, we want to emphasize what the Bible has to say. We want to stand alongside Jesus and His apostles in expecting immersion as the norm for every believer.. Or, as Peter said in the first gospel sermon, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38)
How does one become a Member?
Our members are people who have expressed their faith in Christ, who have been baptized by immersion, and who are committed to grow and serve in this body of believers. Usually, we offer an opportunity at the end of the worship service for people to step forward, who express a desire to accept Christ as their Savior or to become members of this Church. If you have questions about this or any matter in which we could assist you, please get in touch with one of our leaders.
