What We Teach
Both the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, without error, and are the final authority for all Christian faith and life.
The one God, Creator of all things, is infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.
The Holy Spirit
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict, save, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for Godly living.
Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provides the only grounds for justification and salvation for all who believe.
The True Church
The true church is composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, are united together in the body of Christ.
Having been led by The Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and, on the profession of our Faith, we do now, in the presence of God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and this assembly, most prayerfully and joyfully enters into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of Mehan Union Church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its spirituality and prosperity; to sustain its worship, ordinances and discipline; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the Church, and the relief of those in need as we spread the Gospel through all nations.
We engage to maintain private and family devotions, to religiously educate our children, to seek the salvation of kindred and acquaintances, to walk circumspectly in the world, to be just in our dealings, faithful to our engagements, to avoid all tattling, backbiting, gossip, malicious and injurious comments of others, and excessive anger, in all things to be in moderation and self-control as to not hinder our testimony unto the Lord Jesus Christ; and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage to watch over one another in Christ like brotherly love; to remember one another in prayer; to aid one another in distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offence, and always be ready for reconciliation; and to support, uphold, and restore being mindful of the rule of our Savior.
We moreover engage that when we leave this Church, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other Church where we can carry out the Spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
