Agape Fellowship is an outreach of CTM.
- It is an open fellowship that welcomes everyone who wants to follow Jesus.
- It is a loved and loving fellowship. We know we are deeply loved by God. We also love Him, and with His help, we love each other, and everyone else.
- It is a local fellowship of believers that meet regularly for worship in Presque Isle County, Michigan.
- It is a Biblical fellowship. We believe in the Bible – the Holy Word of God – and we aim to align our lives and worship to it.
- It is a prayerful fellowship. We bear one another’s burdens in prayer.
- It is an evangelistic fellowship. We desire to obey the Great Commission and become “fishers of men” for the Lord.
Our Statement of Faith
THE BIBLE: We believe in the verbal inspiration and inerrancy of the Scriptures and the authority of both the Old and New Testaments. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)
GOD: We believe that God eternally exists in three Persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God, having the same nature, attributes, and perfections, and worthy of the same worship, reverence and obedience. (Luke 3:22)
MAN: We believe man was created in the image of God, but sinned and fell through disobedience, and that the entire human race shares in man’s lost and depraved nature. (Romans 5:12-19)
JESUS CHRIST: We believe Jesus, the eternal Son of God, took upon Himself the form of a man by means of the virgin birth, lived a sinless life, yet retained His absolute deity, being at the same time very God and very man. (Matthew 1:23)
ATONEMENT FOR SIN: We believe that atonement for sin was made by the sacrificial and substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
THE RESURRECTION: We believe in the literal resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His priestly intercession for His Church. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
SALVATION: We believe salvation is the gift of God by grace alone and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
THE HOLY SPIRIT: We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father, the Comforter who indwells and places every believer in the Body of Christ, bestows spiritual gifts upon the Church and convicts the world of sin and the judgment to come. (Romans 8:9)
INDWELLING OF THE SPIRIT: While all believers are in-dwelt by the Spirit of God (Romans 8), we believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a definite endowment of power for service. (Acts 1:8; Acts 8:12-17)
ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH: We believe that the ordinances of the church, by the command of Christ, are Water Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper, both of which are administered to those who are born again. (Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
ETERNITY: We believe in the eternal salvation of the believers and in the eternal damnation and punishment of the nonbelievers. We believe that the consummation of all things includes the visible, personal and glorious return of Jesus Christ – the “Blessed Hope” of the Church. (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21)
