Our Mission - Statement of Faith

The Scriptures

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament were written by persons divinely inspired, that they are the only infallible rule of faith and practice and are the supreme standards by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

God

We believe that there is only one true and living God, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth, inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons–the father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.

The Individual

Humanity was created by the special act of God, in his own image, and is the crowning work of his creation. In the beginning, man and woman were innocent of sin and were endowed by the Creator with freedom of choice. By their free choice, they sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan, human beings transgressed the command of God and fell from their original innocence, whereby human posterity inherited a nature and an environment inclined toward sin. As soon as the individual is capable of moral action, he or she becomes a transgressor and is under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring a person into divine fellowship and enable one to fulfill the creative purpose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created men and women in his own image, and in that Christ died for all; therefore, every human being possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace by faith in the mediatorial office of the Son of God, who freely took upon himself our nature, yet without sin, honored the divine law by his personal obedience, and by his death made a full atonement for our sins and that having risen from the dead, he is now enthroned and is in every way qualified to be a suitable, compassionate, and all-sufficient Savior.

Our History

New Gasper River Church was founded in 1853 and constituted in 1856. It is the tenth oldest church in Warren County.

As with any history there are some milestones of this church…for instance in 1962 the coal stove was replaced with a gas furnace. New Sunday School rooms were voted on in July 1970. After the ceiling in the auditorium collapsed in Jan. 1999 renovations to the building took place with no money borrowed and completed in June 2000.

As the history reads, "There have been times of trouble and discouragement when the light may have flickered, but it has never gone out. The record books show that New Gasper has always been a giving church."
