As a New Testament lecturer, I frequently hear folks saying things like “I prefer the New Testament over the Old Testament.” And, “the God of the Old Testament is angry, whereas the God of the New Testament is love.” A popular mega-church pastor in the United States made the claim recently that we should ‘unhitch’ Christianity from the Old, because the Old Testament presents so many impediments to belief for contemporary people.

When I hear this sort of thing, I have to confess: I’m perplexed…. click to read more

  • We should read the Bible as those who listen to the very speech of God.  – FB Meyer
  • I desire to handle the Word of God so that no man may ever find an excuse in my ministry for his living without Christ.  – Charles Spurgeon
  • Beware of reasoning about God’s Word. Obey it.  – Oswald Chambers
  • The Bible does not stutter.  – Eric Ludy

At Truth & Grace Fellowship our focus is to TRACE our lives after Jesus. He promised his Holy Spirit will move in, teach, comfort and give us grace and power to live out this life of faith, until we die or until Jesus returns for His Church as promised.  A full copy of our beliefs can be given upon request. Pastors Jeremy & Josh love to share from God’s Word each Sunday & will encourage you to TRACE with us in your everyday life!  Hebrews 10:24

God says!  We Believe!

    • God as revealed in the Bible (the triune Godhead: Father, Son, & Holy Spirit) and they are one. (John 14:1 and 9 and 26, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Ephesians 3:3)
    • The Bible is the revealed Word of God and that Jesus was, and is, the exact representation of God’s being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. (see John 14:9, 2 Peter 1:16-21, Colossians 1:15, Galatians 1:12, Hebrews 1:3)
    • Jesus is the only way to the Father. (John 4:25-26, John 14:6, Ephesians 2:18, 3:12, 2 Corinthians 5:19)
    • Because of God’s love for the world, Jesus paid the ultimate price by dying on the cross for our sins once and for all. (John 3:16-17 and 19:28-30, Romans 5:8, Galatians 1:4)
    • He proved He was God by rising from the grave, defeating all sin and death just as the prophets foretold. (Galatians 1:1, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 1 John 1:1-4)
    • Jesus invites us all to follow Him (TRACE) and receive eternal life!  How?  By believing in and placing our trust completely in His sacrifice for us, confessing our sins and repenting of our sinful ways, we walk obediently in the new life He gave us, not by sight, but by faith! (John 14:21, 1 John 1:5, Colossians 1:27, 1 John 2:25, 2 Peter 3:8-10, 2 Corinthians 5:7)
