Song and Sword Exists to Proclaim Jesus with a

“Song of Grace and the Sword of Truth.”

 

Our name originated from Psalm 149:6 where it says of the Lord’s people,

“Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands.”  

 

This dual reality of Christ followers reflects the God we serve.

Our ancient brothers sang, “The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love” (Psalm 145:8 – song of grace).  

 

He is a God of Mercy.  

At the same time He wields ultimate justice and truth with his word being the sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17).  

He is a God of Truth.

We pray that the Spirit will create in us a fellowship, that like our Lord was “full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).  

what
we
believe

We believe in the Trinity-God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as revealed in scripture. One God. Three distinct persons.

 

We believe that Jesus, fully God and fully human, was sent into the world to save us from our sins. We follow him as Christ and Lord and the only way to God the Father.

 

We believe in the bodily death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

 

We believe that God the Holy Spirit dwells in, gifts, and empowers all Christ followers.

 

We believe that the church is the body, bride, and building of Jesus. The worldwide church, and therefore every Christ-following congregation of believers is the expression of Jesus in the world today.

 

We believe that the Bible is God’s written word. Since all of it testifies to the Living Word Jesus and is inspired by the Holy Spirit, we define sin and righteousness by the Scriptures alone.

 

We believe that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and not by any works we can do on our own. As such we maintain a loving and inviting posture towards
all people.

We believe in the resurrection of our earthly bodies and that Jesus will return for both the living and the dead who have put their trust in him, and that we will spend eternity with him.

We believe that we are on mission to make disciples, teach Jesus, and baptize people from all nations beginning in our respective locations.

We believe that God designed marriage from the beginning for a man and a woman to enjoy an equal, complementary, and loving relationship where two become one.
