Our Beliefs
  FBC Perkasie
Knowing and Loving Jesus
We believe with the Apostle Paul that it is worth counting all things loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:8). He is the source of life, of all that is good and He is the most worthy pursuit in life.
What an amazing privilege we have as believers -- to call upon the living God and have Him hear and answer! We value that privilege and seek as a local church to emphasize the importance of prayer, supplication and intercession. It is an act of love and worship, an act of faith and submission to an all powerful God -- the One who changes circumstances and hearts. (Heb 4:16)
Biblical Authority
We believe that the Bible is God's revelation to mankind and that it is absolute truth, the standard for faith and practice, the grid through which all experience is sifted. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) It is the Living Word of God, unchanging in an ever-changing world.
Reaching The Lost
We believe that God has placed a circle of influence around each of our lives -- family, friends, neighbors, co-workers -- and we may be the only ones who can share Jesus Christ with them. Jesus' imperative is our imperative -- make disciples! Therefore, we place great value on equipping people for ministry into those lives around them so that they might be able to "make disciples... teaching them in all that He has commanded." (Matt. 28:18-20)
Biblical Community
We believe that we are to love and encourage one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. We live in a difficult day, and the encouragement, care and concern of the family of God are essential to stand in the evil day.
(Heb 3:13; 1Pet. 4:8-10)
Biblical Acceptance
We believe that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, of which we were the foremost, and that it is only by His grace that we stand before God approved. We desire to show the love of Christ to all who walk through the door that they, too, might come to know and love Him who saved us! (Rom. 5:8; Eph. 2:5; Col. 3:8-14)
Praise and Worship
We believe that praise and worship are the eternal occupation of the believer, a natural response to an ever-loving, ever-faithful God. (Heb 12:28; Psa 66:4) Our Savior and our God is the only One who is worthy of our praise! (Rev. 4:11;5:12)
A Growing Spirit-Filled Walk as Normal Christian Living
We believe that the old nature died with Christ and we are freed from the slavery of sin, and that when God says we are to walk according to the Spirit, we can! We have the opportunity to make godly choices as we daily crucify the flesh and walk by the Spirit. There is no secret to walking by the Spirit, it is normal Christian living. (Gal. 5:16)
