"For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit."
1 Corinthians 12:12-13
Carmel Presbyterian Church exists to glorify God and make disciples by Connecting People to Christ through small acts of great love every day.
"'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, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'”
Our vision is to lead all in our community to become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you."
God has blessed us with an incredibly diverse congregation. From infants, to young adults, families, to those in the 2nd half of life, we as the body of believers strive to grow in the faith along side one another.
"Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!"
STATEMENT OF FAITH
ECO - ESSENTIAL TENETS
The Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament, is God’s authoritative word to humanity. We believe Jesus Christ must be at the center of our lives and making disciples of Jesus at the core of our ministry.
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son (Jesus the Christ), Holy Spirit.
The Gospel tells us to put our faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins and offers us everlasting grace which is free because of His life, death, and resurrection.
The Holy Spirit indwells Christians and keeps them together in a covenant community called the Church.
The Bible calls Christians to meet together and encourage each other through worship, preaching/teaching, fellowship, communion & baptism, and prayer.
We submit ourselves to God’s Word as the authority of faith and daily living.
We worship the Triune God alone as there is no other.
We preach/teach the gospel as the only hope for ourselves and all around us.
We follow the Holy Spirit in a commitment to be unified.
We submit ourselves to the local church and seek to honor, serve, and give to the best of our ability.
