what does the orchard believe about Jesus?
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world. The bible teaches that Jesus died on the cross for our sin, was raised from the dead three days later. Jesus ascended into heaven and one day will return and draw all his followers to himself and reign forever.

 what does the orchard believe about humanity?
  • We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

 what does the orchard believe about salvation?
  • We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. It is by faith in Jesus Christ by which we are saved and this not through our own works but by the grace of God. God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in Jesus. Repentance of our sin and baptism by immersion is the biblical response of those placing their faith in Jesus Christ.

what does the orchard believe about the Christian life?
  • We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Holy Spirit, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.

what does the orchard believe about the Church?
  • We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ’ death and resurrection. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by loving Him and sharing His eternal and living hope with those who are lost, wounded and disenfranchised.
