What We Believe

 

We believe and teach...
  • God the Father as our Creator; Jesus Christ the Son of God as our Savior and Lord; the Holy Spirit as the third person of the eternal God, who renews our hearts and makes us children of God.
  • The problem of the human race is sin - sin in all of us.....sin makes it impossible for us to create a sure hope for ourselves (1 John 1:8)
  • Jesus Christ is the only Savior from sin - we find personal salvation through faith in Him.....so that in Him we find peace and comfort in this life, and a sure hope for the life to come (John 20:31)
  • We are called to live a life of obedience and service to our Lord in a spirit of thankfulness for our deliverance from sin and misery.....and that real happiness is to be found in such a life (Romans 14:17)
Our Goals At Bunde CRC

 

As a congregation, we strive to better serve God in our community and share Christ with everyone.  We desire to accomplish the following, to the best of our ability, with God’s help and guidance:

  1. In a world that is ever changing, we see our community becoming more and more diverse in its ethnicity, age, affluence, and occupation.  We are no longer just an agricultural based German community.  Therefore, we will reflect our community’s diversity.

2. When one usually thinks of missions, ideas of far away places pop into the mind.  Recognizing the need for Jesus in our immediate community commands that we will expand our local missions outside of Bunde CRC’s doors and into our surrounding area, realizing it as our mission field.

  3. A passionate, Christian life that reflects accountability, spiritual growth, and dedication to prayer has been expressed as a desire of many of our members.  One of the ways in which to accomplish this is through small group ministries.  Here at Bunde CRC our small groups continue to grow in number and strength as we try to meet the needs of all individuals who come through our doors to meet Jesus in a passionate and personal way. 

  4. To have an effective and vibrant Church, everyone must be contributing to accomplish the task set before us.  We believe God has given everyone gifts to be used in service to Him.  We desire to help everyone identify their spiritual gifts and for everyone to be using their spiritual gifts in service to God and their fellow men. 

  5. In a world where we have been called by God to love our neighbor, we want to follow His example.  Many people in our immediate community have needs that are both physical and spiritual. In obedience to God’s command we will reach out to our community, meeting physical and spiritual needs with the love of Jesus.
