What We Believe

mission

The mission of Erb Mennonite Church is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Vision

Our Vision at Erb Mennonite Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who are Prayerful, Passionate, Growing in Christ, Prepared, and Telling Others.


Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Erb Mennonite Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these Biblical doctrines.

We believe in Almighty God

He is the creator of all things, eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


We believe in Jesus Christ, who is our Savior and Lord

He is the only Son of God, born of a virgin and gave His life by death on the cross as the ultimate sacrifice for sin. He arose from the dead defeating sin and death.

Only through confession of our sin and belief in Jesus is there reconciliation with God, who by grace saves our soul. We believe that water baptism symbolizes that God cleanses us from sin when we come to faith in Jesus.

We anticipate the day of Christ's triumphant Second Coming. At that time He will judge both the living and the dead, as the faithful will eternally reside in Heaven with God. All those who reject Him as Lord will be eternally separated from God in Hell.


We believe in the Holy Spirit

His indwelling presence empowers the church, is the source of our life in Christ, and is poured out on those who believe as the guarantee of redemption.


We believe the Holy Scriptures are God's inspired,
authoritative and infallible written Word for all mankind

By the grace of God we submit to its authority and allow it to guide our daily living.
