What we believe

Meet Lenape Valley Church through the faith of our community

god

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. God exists in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. God is perfect in love, power, goodness, wisdom, justice and mercy. Our God is holy and unchanging- the same yesterday, today and forever.

The bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word.  The Bible is trustworthy, authoritative and relevant to our everyday lives.  The Bible reveals who God is, and who we are.

sin

We believe that our sin has separated each of us from God and from
His purpose for our lives.

jesus the christ

We believe “God so loves the world that He gave his only Son.”  Jesus Christ is the Emmanuel -“God with us.”  Jesus came to live among us that we would know him.  Jesus gave his life to pay the price for our sin, that we could live in relationship with him.  Jesus rose from the dead to conquer death for us, that we could live eternally with him.  “Whosoever believes in him should not perish, but should have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
And we believe that Jesus will come again in glory.

grace

We believe we are invited into a living relationship with God through grace found in Jesus Christ.  Grace is the free, unmerited gift of God.
By God’s grace we are saved, not through our own goodness.
In Jesus Christ we find forgiveness, hope, love and life.

The Church

We believe the Church is called to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.  We follow Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all, and Head of the Church.

mission

We believe that as a community of believers we are called to be the mission of Jesus Christ to the world God so loves, bringing love, healing and grace to the world.  All are welcome to join the mission!
