About The Bowling Green Church

 

Christians at the Bowling Green Church of Christ believe in the God of the Bible.  The Bible, the inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17), is our only guide in what is taught and practiced (John 12:48).  The Church of Christ in the 21st century is not a denomination, but a direct continuation of the Lord’s church established in the 1st century, in Jerusalem, on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:41,47).  Just as people in the first century became Christians upon obeying the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we at Bowling Green are Christians only by obedience to the same gospel.  Obedience to Christ’s gospel consists of the following steps:

 

            *HEARING AND LEARNING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST -ROMANS 10:17.

            *BELIEVING THAT CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD – HEBREWS 11:6, JOHN 6:40

                        He came to earth – John 1:14

                        Died on a the cross to pay the price for our sins – 1 John 2:2; 4:10

                        Was resurrected – Romans 1:4

                        And is now reigning in Heaven – Hebrews 12:2; 1 Corinthians 15:25

            *REPENTING OF ONE’S SINS – LUKE 13:3, 5; ACTS 17:30-31; 2 PETER 3:9

            *CONFESS PUBLICLY THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD – MATTHEW 10:32

            *BEING BAPTIZED (BURIED/IMMERSED IN WATER) FOR THE REMISSION

              OF ONE’S SINS – ROMANS 6:1-7; ACTS 2:38; 8:35-39; 22:16

            *REMAINING FAITHFUL UNTIL DEATH – REVELATION 2:10b
