We are Christians in the Mobile area who assemble together to worship our Lord and stir each other up to love and good works (Hebrews 10:24-25). We cannot claim perfection. Every single one of us has sinned, but by God’s grace we have been washed, we have been sanctified, and we have been justified (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). We strive with all our heart, soul, and mind to be disciples of Jesus and a church that truly belongs to him.
We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ, the son of the living God (Matthew 16:15-18) and that he has all authority on heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18-20). We take that authority seriously and seek to make sure that all we do is pleasing to our King. For this reason, we are not associated with any denomination or organization of churches, which were never organized or authorized by our Lord. Like the local churches in the New Testament, we are independent of other groups and answer only to Jesus and the apostles that he appointed and authorized to convey his will (whose authoritative writings we have preserved in the New Testament). That means that we are not Baptists, Roman Catholics, Mormons, Methodists, or any other “kind” of Christian. We are simply Christians.
We see the suffering in our community and we recognize that the ultimate source of that pain is sin – rebellion against the God who gives life. We have each experienced that suffering in our own lives as a result of our own sins and the sins of others, but each of us has also experienced the joy of having our sins forgiven – our rebellion pardoned by our merciful King. We have humbly submitted our lives to Jesus and have placed our confident hope in the promises of our God. It is that service and that hope that gives our lives purpose, and we long to share that blessing with others in this great city.
…he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen. – Paul, 1 Timothy 6:15-16
