Mission of the Church
The Wilson Park Christian Community Church, is called to be a lighthouse in the community extending the love of Jesus the Christ. Our mission is to preach, teach, empower, and nurture all to surrender to the will of God and enter into discipleship.
Vision of the Church
The vision of the Wilson Park Christian
Community Church, is to be open spiritually,
"Whosoever will, let them come." The vision is to help members of the church and community, using our mission not wanting any to perish, but all to come to eternal life.
Wilson Park Christian Community Church is a member of the United Council of Christian Community Churches of Maryland and Vicinity.
A community church is one that seeks to be inclusive rather than exclusive. Persons coming from different denominational backgrounds and religious traditions learning to worship and work together, to emphasize those beliefs which are held common and not let differences be disruptive of the unity for which Christ prayed.
More so than in any other church, a member in a Community Church has the right and responsibility of individual conscience. More so than a church in any other movement, a member church has self-governing rights and responsibilities, autonomy, freedom to structure
its own worship, work and witness.
More so than a church in any other movement, a Community Church can promote “Unity without Uniformity.” Members of a Community Church “agree to differ, resolve to love, and unite to serve.”
THE ONE TRUE GOD
- We believe in the one ever-living, eternal God
- This one true God has revealed Himself as Father,
- Through His Son, Jesus Christ;
- And as the Holy Spirit, the comforter.
- We believe that the Bible, the sacred scriptures, is a supreme revelation verbally inspired of God to man.
- The Bible is a guide for living life to the full. It gives us a road map for the perilous journey of life.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
- We therefore believe that Jesus Christ came into the world as God in the Flesh.
- It is impossible to know the Father without knowing the Son
- (John 1:1-14; John 13; Colossians 1:15-19; 2; Hebrews 1).
- The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.
- The Scriptures declare:
- His virgin birth (Isaiah 9:6-7; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:30-35);
- His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22);
- His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38);
- His sacrifice on the cross (1 Cor. 13:3; 2 Cor. 5:21);
- His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Cor. 15:4);
- His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3).
- We believe the words of Jesus that “ye must be born again”; that being born again signifies the partaking in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (John 3:3-7; 1 Cor. 15:1-4); that “by grace are ye saved, through faith: and that not of yourselves,
- It is the gift of God – not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
- We further believe that the emphasis for a continual walk in grace should be of heart, righteousness, and purity.
- We hold that all believers must be examples to both believers and unbelievers
THE WORK OF REPENTANCE
- We believe that repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ produces the work of Justification in the believer.
- Through faith in the shed blood of Christ, the believer is forgiven for the mistakes he has committed.
- This is the initial step of salvation.
THE SACRAMENT OF WATER BAPTISM
- “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved” (Mark 16:16).
- We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is an important and necessary experience in the life of every believer.
THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION
- The Lord’s Supper commemorates the death and suffering of Jesus Christ in sacrificing Himself for fallen man. It consists of bread (representing the body of Christ) and the fruit of the vine (representing the blood of Christ).
- Partaking the Lord’s Supper is an expression of faith in sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ
- For as often as you do this, do it in remembrance of Jesus Christ's sacrifice.
