WHO WE ARE

As an affiliated congregation with the American Fellowship Cowboy Churches (AFCC), we feel that is important to share who we are. On this page, you will find information about our core beliefs and values as a church.

What is AFCC?

The American Fellowship of Cowboy Churches (AFCC) is a non-profit Christian organization made up of cowboy churches whose leaders and congregations believe the Bible is the true, complete, and unfailing Word of God. The primary goal of the AFCC is to help our affiliate churches reach people for Jesus Christ. 

 

The organization was formed to help resource our affiliate cowboy churches through communication, training, mentoring, and sponsorship, to hopefully enable them to start even more cowboy churches, and eventually spread God’s Word from one side of the nation to the other!

STATEMENTS OF FAITH

God 

 

There is only one God. He always was and always will be. He reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

God as the Father 

 

God as “our Father in Heaven” is our Deliverer, our Healer and our Provider. He is Father to the fatherless and the One to whom we pray. Jesus Christ created all things in the beginning. He later came to earth to purchase mankind back as our Redeemer (through His death, burial and resurrection), restoring the relationship with God for all who believe in Him.

God as the Son 

Jesus Christ created all things in the beginning. He later came to earth to purchase mankind back as our Redeemer (through His death, burial and resurrection), restoring the relationship with God for all who believe in Him. The Bible is God’s Word for mankind, illuminated by the Holy Spirit. It contains everything needed for life and godliness. It is a lamp for our feet and a light for our path. God’s Word is also the sword of the Spirit, our only offensive weapon in the full armor of God, to stand against the devils temptations and attacks.

God as the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit draws all people to Jesus Christ, resides in all who receive Christ as their Savior and guides children of God through life’s journey to Heaven.

Man

God created man, both male and female, in His own likeness and image. Man was given the earth to rule over and subdue, but chose to disobey and fell short of the glory of God, becoming spiritually separated from God. 

 

Salvation

Mankind has been separated from God by sin and the wages of sin is death, but Jesus died on our behalf that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life. Salvation is a gift of God’s grace through our faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation comes with God’s assurance that we know we have eternal life and that no one can remove us from the security of His hand.

Baptism

Baptism is a demonstration of what has spiritually taken place in the life of a believer in Jesus Christ, identifying with Christ’s death (to our old ways), burial (down into the water), and resurrection (up from the water). Baptism represents both Christ’s resurrection from the tomb and the resurrection of all believers yet to come.

 

Church 

The church is the body of Christ working together to spread the message of salvation and to equip God’s people for service in the Kingdom.

 

Heaven

In Christ, we are members of the Kingdom of God, yet are presently walking on this earth as strangers and aliens in a foreign land, eagerly looking forward to the coming kingdom at the end of this age with the return of Jesus Christ.
