Statement of Faith

faith

  • Northwest Friends Church has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
  • Our supreme desire is to know Jesus and to be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Although we are a denominational church, we do believe that an overemphasis of doctrinal differences has led to divisions within the Body of Christ.
  • We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is God's love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim the name of Christian.
  • We believe the worship of our God should be spiritual; therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship services.
  • We believe the worship of our God should be inspirational; therefore, we give great place and emphasis to music in the worship service.
  • We believe the worship of our God should be intelligent; therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon teaching the Word of manner that will encourage us in our daily living.
  • We believe the worship of our God should be fruitful; therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have worshipped Him in spirit and truth.
