Thursday, September 29th, 2016

With Kermit and Henrietta Morris finishing their 6-month assignment on December 13, 2016, it is timely that Bootle Evangelical Church (BEC) has already called their next volunteer American interim pastor. They have called Rev. Jerry Cox (wife Carolyn). The Cox’s plan to arrive at Bootle on December 11, 2016. That will give them a couple of days for orientation and to adjust to the essentials from operation of all things in the manse and church and to the operation of the car.

The Bible
We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

The Trinity
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He is completely God and completely man. He lived a sinless life, and he died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Father, He now is our High Priest and Advocate.

The Holy Spirit
We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, give life to the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.

Man and Sin
We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore separated from God both physically and spiritually and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

We believe in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary payment for our sins, not based on human merit, works, or religious ceremony. We believe that anyone who has placed their faith in Christ is eternally secure, has everlasting life, will not come into condemnation, and shall never perish. We believe that assurance comes to the believer from three primary sources: trusting the Word of God’s promises, the witness of the Holy Spirit, and a persevering walk with the Lord.

The Church
We believe in the church, both universally and locally, as the spiritual body of which Christ is the Head, and in the practices of water baptism by immersion of believers and the Lord’s Supper as the ordinances of the local church.

The Great Commission
We believe that those whom God has saved are sent into the world by Christ as He was by the Father. Those so sent are ambassadors, commissioned to go make disciples and make Christ known to the whole world. We also believe that everyone should have an opportunity to carefully examine the facts about Christ and have an opportunity to make an intelligent decision about Him.

We believe in the physical resurrection of the human body (at the second coming of Christ); in the eternal conscious existence of all individuals in either heaven or hell; and in the rewards of the saved and the punishment of the lost for eternity.
