What We Believe

What We Believe

“But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.”
– Titus 2:1

What a church believes and teaches is extremely important. It is actually what distinguishes a true church from any other gathering of people for any other purpose. We strive as a church to teach and practice sound doctrine.  We at Grace Fellowship are a part of the Presbyterian Church in America and believe and teach the following:

  • We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.
  • We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
  • We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
  • We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
  • We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

      Hey Henry,
      From all we can tell, it appears that Clanton Presbyterian Church was founded in 1917. We still need to do a little more digging, but that seems to be the founding date.

    I have been a Baptist my whole life but have struggled with the “free will” mentality and most Baptist Church’s saying “We can not save ourselves” that “All we can bring or offer are like the most dirty clothes” paraphrasing here. Sounds contradicting doesn’t it? I have not been in church for over ten years. I have been aware of ur church and what the body believes. I know I need to make the first step to come back and re-new my relationship with the father and son. So I thought what better time than the Easter weekend so, What if any services does the church there at Grace have planned for this weekend or Sunday? Thanks

      Hey Terry, we’d be glad for you to come worship with us this Sunday, or any Sunday! We meet for Sunday School at 9:45, and worship at 11. I’d also be happy to meet with you over lunch or coffee to talk, if you’re interested. Please call the church at 205-755-4150 and let’s set something up.
