What We Believe

The Organization of the Church

prayingNew Testament churches were simple in their organization.  They had no organizations larger than, smaller than, or other than the local church.  In the New Testament, local churches were self-governing (Acts 20:28; 1 Peter 5:2).  They were not affiliated with any denomination, synod, council or any other humanly devised organization. Ideally, each congregation had elders and deacons.  Junction Highway is blessed with qualified elders who oversee the work of the church (1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-11; 1 Peter 5:1-3), deacons who provide for the physical facilities, worship, and Bible classes (1 Timothy 3:8-13).  We also have a local evangelist (2 Timothy 4:5) and many capable Bible class teachers (Hebrews 5:12).

We believe that Jesus is the head of the church (Ephesians 1:20-23) and that each person will answer to Him (John 12:48; Romans 2:5-11).

The Work of the Church

In the New Testament churches were given three vital works:

  • Spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, Acts 8:4; 2 Timothy 2:2.
  • Giving financial support to needy Christians, Acts 4:34-35; Romans 15:25-26.
  • Encouraging and edifying one another, Romans 14:19; Ephesians 4:11-16.

How to Be Saved

The New Testament teaches that to be saved we must

  • Hear and believe the gospel message (Romans 10:14; Hebrews 11:6; John 8:24).
  • Repent of our sins (Acts 3:19; 17:30-31; 2 Peter 3:9).
  • Confess our faith in Jesus to others (Romans 10:9-10; Acts 8:37).
  • Be baptized (immersed) in water for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16; Galatians 3:26-27; 1 Peter 3:21).
  • Live faithfully until this life is over (Romans 6:4; Revelation 2:10).
