Current Series: The Gospel of Mark

A verse-by-verse exposition of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We live by the Grace of God…

Our purpose is to provide a place where believers may gather together to worship God, magnify our Savior, study the Scriptures, love and serve one another, be equipped for ministry and service, enjoy fellowship, and grow in Christ-likeness. We invite you to join us in the pursuits!

…for the Glory of God alone.

These precepts form the basis for everything we do as a church, and for our preaching and teaching. Our work is to proclaim Jesus Christ as he is presented in Scripture until he returns. “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

CORE DOCTRINES

Below are six core doctrines held by Fellowship Church Lubbock.

The sufficiency and inerrancy of Scripture

We maintain that the historically accepted 66 books (no more and no less) that comprise the canon of the Holy Bible are complete, inerrant,  and sufficient as the ultimate rule of the faith, and the final authority of the practice of every believer. Show us anything clearly written in the Bible and we will receive it, believe it, and submit to it. Show us anything contrary to what the Bible says, however sophisticated, plausible, beautiful, or apparently desirable, and we will disregard it, reject it and resist it. (Psalm 19:7-11; 119:89, 105; Colossians 2:8; Galatians 1:8; II Timothy 3:16-17; Jude 1:3)

q

The radical corruption of the heart of sinful man

We maintain that, apart from God, the heart of man is not only radically corrupt, but indeed utterly dead, making it impossible for him to please God until the Holy Spirit changes him and draws him to the redeeming work of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, sinful man can never understand or appreciate the gospel message rightly, nor come to salvation actually, until he is empowered by the Spirit to acknowledge the pestilence of his sin and his desperate need for a Savior. (Proverbs 21:10; Matthew 15:19; John 3:20; Romans 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-2; Hebrews 11:6; II Peter 3:16)

The Holy Spirit alone brings man to Christ.

We maintain that the Holy Spirit alone convicts man regarding his sin, softens, renews, and gives life to his heart, and draws him to godly sorrow, true repentance and saving faith, and furthermore, that righteousness and salvation are never due to any faith or work that man initiates. We further maintain that the mighty works of the Holy Spirit – inward repentance, faith, hope, hatred of sin, and love of God and his Word – are vital, and always present, in the life of a true convert. “We do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit” (John 16:8; I Peter 1:2; II Thessalonians 2:13; Romans 8:3-4)

The Finished, Sufficient Work of Jesus Christ

The perfect, finished, propitiatory, substitutionary, redemptive work of Jesus Christ alone is required, and is completely sufficient, to save the soul of sinful, rebellious man. Jesus gave himself over to be crucified to conquer sin and was buried and resurrected to conquer death. His work was to absorb the punishment we deserve, in order to meet the Father’s holy standard of justice that required our death. The payment Jesus made was complete and final. When it is accounted to a soul by God, such salvation is assured eternally. It will never again be retracted by God, and it can never be reversed or forfeited by man. 

The Absolute Sovereignty and Authority of God

The absolute sovereignty of God is a doctrine that gives rest, peace, joy and comfort. God has orchestrated all things that man experiences and observes, including his salvation, and He eternally maintains control in all things, actively, purposefully achieving His eternal plan for the good of the elect, and for His own eternal glory. He “can do all things”, and “no purpose of his can be thwarted.” He “works all things according to the counsel of his will” and “whatever he pleases, he does.” We may throw the dice, but the LORD determines how they fall. (Proverbs 16:33; Job 42:2; Psalm 135:6-7; Ephesians 1:3-14)

The Deity, Flesh and Office of our Lord, Jesus

Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man; he is the only begotten Son of God, born of flesh, and returning in flesh, who has eternally existed with the Father and the Holy Spirit in triunity. He is the sovereign Creator of all things, authoritative Master of all men, King of all kings, Lord of all lords, and ultimate Judge of every soul under his loving, yet righteous and absolute rule. Born of a virgin to dwell sinlessly among sinful man, he is the compassionate Author and Finisher of our salvation. (I Timothy 2:5, 6:15; Revelation 19:16; John 8:24,58, 10:30; Romans 5:1, 12:3; Hebrews 10:10, 11:6; Mark 10:14-15; Ephesians 2:8-9;).
