West Mobile Bible Fellowship believes in faith in Jesus Christ as the only Savior and Way to Heaven (Ephesians 2:4-9), hope through the Bible as the only authority in matters of faith and lifestyle (Romans 15:4), and love for one-another as the ultimate witness of our faith and motivation for missions (John 13:34-35).
The following doctrinal statements provide further biblical support and clarity to our above Statement of Belief..
Faith in Jesus Christ…
We believe that all men are saved by faith alone and only through the substitutionary birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 2:4-9; Romans 6:23).
We anticipate the promise of the second coming of Jesus Christ through the practice of communion and belief in the resurrection of the dead with the awarded gift of immortality (1 Corinthians 15:50-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Hope through the Bible…
We see the intended role of the church, both local and universal, individual and corporate, male and female, young and old, to be the entrusted witness of the gospel, doctrine, and truth of Scripture before a lost world (1 Timothy 3:15; Matthew 28:16-20).
Love for One-Another…
We believe that the ultimate witness of our Christian faith is our love for one-another as expressed in attitude, actions, and evangelistic efforts that rely on the convicting power of the Holy Spirit, which is the giver of God’s unconditional love within human hearts (John 13:34-35; Romans 5:5).
We subscribe to the belief that our God is love and His love seeks to promote an abundant life for us, while Satan seeks to counteract God’s love through destruction and death (1 John 4:7; John 10:10).
We seek to affirm God’s love in the institution of marriage as a lifelong union between one man and one woman in mutual respect and companionship, and within the family structure as parents and siblings, and as children of God before men (Genesis 1:26-28; Ephesians 5:22-33).
We recognize the power of God’s love to transcend social, political, racial, economical, national, or cultural differences for peace and cooperation in the advancement of God’s Kingdom here on earth (John 15:12; John 3:16).
As often as conflicting issues within our society, disputes with the church at large, or as national religious liberty threats deem necessary, we will develop and adopt appropriate “position statements” to offer clarity regarding our pastoral leadership and/or our Doctrinal Beliefs on those matters and post them at this website with links below:
