St. Charles Bible Church

 

About Us


Hearing Assistance
Our sound system features TELEX personal listening devices. Please ask one of the ushers for one of these units if you need assistance with hearing.

Church Bulletins
Please take a church bulletin.  It includes our order of service, future events, prayer requests, birthdays, and our pastor's commentary.

Music
We enjoy hymns of faith as well as songs of worship and praise.  Most often, hymns will be sung from the hymnals, and songs of worship and praise will be on the screen up front.

Communion
We practice 'open communion', meaning that our attendees are welcome to join  us for communion provided they have trusted Christ as their Savior.  We believe that the 'bread and cup' are symbols of His body and blood.  

Counseling
As family members and pastoral staff, we are concerned about the physical, mental, and spiritual health of our church family.  As such, we engage in listening, counseling, prayer, and other help as we can give it.  If professional help is needed, we will recommend help outside the church family.

Fellowship
The Bible Church is only a local representation of the invisible Church--made up of all those individuals who have trusted Christ as Savior and Lord.  There is an immediate sense of fellowship for true believers.  Welcome to the Family!

This we believe...
1.  The Bible
is the inerrant Word of God in print.  "...holy men of God spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit." 2 Peter 1:21

2.  The Trinity:  God is One in three Persons--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

3.  God the Son--Jesus, the Christ.  Born of a virgin, sinless life, substitutionary death, died, buried, rose again, and is coming back, as He said.

4.  God the Spirit--the Gift for believers, promised by Jesus, and sent from the Father.  He is the third Person of the Trinity Who regenerates, indwells, guides, keeps all believers, and convicts the sinner.

5.  Mankind:  A sinner by birth and by choice, created, born with a depraved sin nature, unable to remedy his lost estate without God's intervention and grace.

6.  Salvation is found through the grace of God alone, by repentent faith in the Person and work of Christ, exclusively.

7.  The Church is a universal gathering found in local fellowships of regenerated believers called to evangelize, congregate, and disciple lost souls for Christ.

8.  We look for the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for true believers, but the Bible says eternal death awaits the unbelievers.

9.  Ordinances:  We practice two:  communion as a celebration of the Lord's table, and water baptism as the visual testimony of the inward work of the Holy Spirit.

10.  We teach that we are all broken; we all are sinners in need of restoration, strength, and discipline.  As believers, we strive to "please Him" and encourage our fellow travelers.
