What is The Garden?
To create a community of authentic believers who are determined to live out scripture by making the gospel known intimately, locally, and globally.
THE BIBLE The Bible is wholly inspired by God and everything it is true. It is the true, living and active Word of God. We take creation as literal, that the earth was created in six days. The Bible is the base to everything we do. We believe truth is truth rather we agree if it is fair or not. We believe following the Bible’s commands are not a chore but a blessing. We believe the Bible is enough alone and follow nothing else.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
GOD THE FATHER He is perfectly wise, the source of everything good. He is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. In all things He is limited by nothing other than His own nature and character. We believe the God we serve is holy, righteous, good, loving, and full of mercy. He is the Creator, Sustainer, and Governor of all that has been made. He is immanent and transcendent.
JESUS CHRIST Jesus Christ is The Son of God. Nobody comes to The Father except through him. There is power in his name and he died for all who believe in him, cleansing them of their sins.
(Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:6-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13)
THE HOLY SPIRIT The Holy Spirit is God, and dwells in and empowers all who believe in God. He enters us at the moment of salvation enabling us to have a personal relationship with The Father. The Holy Spirit brings us, love, joy, peace, self-control, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
