United Faith Church in Barnegat New Jersey believes the Word of God to be the handbook of life, used correct and train in righteousness (2 Tim 3:16). This blog is dedicated to articles and posts that use the Word which has the power to transform lives, exalting the power of God over all other existing powers.
The Bible tells us that God is our Father and that we are the family of God. It also speaks about the body (or the family) being the bride of Christ for whom He died. United Faith Church fosters an atmosphere of family while keeping the mandate to honor the Lord Jesus Christ above all else. United Faith Church believes that in seeking the Kingdom of God all other things shall be added (Matt 6:33).
United Faith Church believes that when one puts their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, he or she is regenerated and a new creation is born. The soul that has been redeemed is transformed from death to life by the power of God, and one becomes “born again.” As a baby’s birthing is just the beginning of a new life, it is the same for a newborn believer, regardless of their age.
We believe that the measuring rod of the spiritual age of the believer is reflected by the development of Christ-like behavior. According to the word of God, believers have been created to do great works for God. Discipleship is one of the core missions of United Faith Church. Therefore, it is with intentional discipleship that baby Christians are led in the word of God to grow and accomplish all that God has intended for them.
United Faith Church believes “Christians” should reflect the word of God. New disciples are encouraged and deliberately led to not just hear the word, but become walking epistles of the Lord Jesus Christ. The word of God is used as a mirror for each step of discipleship. Disciples are encouraged to continuously test to see if they are in the faith by measuring their actions according to the word of God.
We encourage believers to be transformed by the renewing of their minds to become Christ-like. This cannot be accomplished by human effort. Only a regenerated soul, redeemed by the blood of Christ can be transformed through the years into the likeness and the image of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christians are the demonstration to the world of the existence of the One True God. Laughter, joy and gladness are some of the outcomes of this transformation; joy – being one of the first. Therefore, at United Faith Church, the transforming power of the word of God is evident through the joy exhibited in the hearts of the faithful followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
