The Church Of Higher Praise
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Church of Higher Praise has a commitment to living consistently according to the teachings of the Bible. We believe in one God who has revealed himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that the written word, The Bible, is true. We believe that Jesus died for the sins of the world and that all who trust him will be saved.
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by inspired men and that it is a perfect rule of faith and practice.
We believe that there is only one living and true God who is infinite in every natural and moral excellence and that He has revealed Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Ghost, the same in essence and equal in divine qualities.
We believe that man was created holy; that he by transgression fell, and as a consequence, he and his descendants became corrupt; and that as "all have sinned," all are "by nature the children of wrath."
THE WAY OF SALVATION
We believe that the only way of salvation is through the righteousness and blood of Jesus Christ our Lord, "whom God hath set forth to be the propitiation for our sins through faith by His blood."
We believe that all true believers will, by the grace of God, persevere in His love and service, being "kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation."
We believe that in the church of Christ there are but two ordinances, Baptism and the Lord's Supper, and that believers are the only proper subjects; that immersion, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, upon profession of faith in Christ, is the only Christian baptism.
THE LORD'S DAY
We believe that, according to the example of the apostles and early Christians, sanctioned by the repeated presence of the Son of God after the resurrection, the first day of the week is to be observed as the Lord's Day.
