KBC Community Church Ethics Policy KBC Community Church, a non-denominational church, is called to worship God, teach God’s Word, reach lost souls and encourage spiritual growth for all God’s children. KBC promotes harmonious development of mind, body and spirit while preparing leaders in service for God and humanity. STATEMENT OF FAITH THE SCRIPTURES: We believe the Bible was written by man divinely inspired by God. THE TRUE GOD: We believe the Scriptures teach there is that God is the one and only living, true God. THE FALL OF MAN: We believe the Scriptures teach that man was created in holiness, by God, the creator; but voluntarily fell from that holy and happy state, in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint but by choice. THE WAY OF SALVATION: We believe the Scriptures teach that salvation of sinners is by grace, through Jesus Christ, God’s one and only son, who died for our sins and arose from the dead. A GOSPEL CHURCH: We believe the Scriptures teach that a visible church of Christ is a congregation of baptized believers associated by covenant in faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the ordinances of Christ; governed by His laws; and exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word. OUR RESPONSIBILITIES We are responsible to God. We are made in His likeness and image, therefore, we must let our character speak God’s goodness. We are responsible to serve our neighbor in fulfilling their needs to the
Salvation describes the deliverance by God for those who believe in him. It is the saving of the soul from sin (and its consequences) through Gods will and grace. Though it takes different forms in every religion, the principle is still the same, often emphasising the necessity of both good works, repentance, and asceticism, as well as divine intervention (in this case the action being the grace of God). If assuming that Christ is the full truth, then the only way to gain access to God after death is through the salvation given by the Christian God. Jesus himself has indicated that a person must hear the word, believe it, repent of past sins, and be willing to confess faith before others, be baptized into Christ for the remission of sins, and then continue to live a faithful life throughout this physical life if we are to go to heaven.
Boundaries and ethics are very important to know whether you a counselor, coach, pastor, and so on because there are limitations in what you can do and say. Almost everywhere you go a business, organization, church, etc. has a Code of Ethics to follow. Having a Code of Ethics in place is to protect the coach and the client to create professional boundaries that can help build a professional relationship. The American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) has very strong approach on how a coach should have professional boundaries with their clients. Having Code of ethic or professional boundaries is important to understanding before you meet your client so you and the client can have a proper environment during your time together. When
Christians believe that salvation is a gift from God that is offered through the death and resurrection of Jesus. This gift is accessed through faith in Jesus. The Christian understanding of salvation draws heavily from the Jewish tradition of Moses and the Exodus, where the Hebrew
In the New Testament, the church can be referred to as the “local” church or the “universal” church. The local church is a place where assemblies of believers come together at a particular location and time. The universal church refers to the body of Christ. Many churches believe that they are healthy because they have a certain number of people on their
There is only one way to god and that is threw Jesus Christ. We have to go through Jesus because we are sinners and sin cannot be in God’s presence. Sin is falling short of Gods glory and since we all fall short we need Jesus to bring us back. To have Jesus we must accept him.
A student in the First-Year Field Practicum must spend at least two hundred and forty hours during the semester in one of the agencies that practicing the profession of social work. The East End United Community Center EEUCC in Uniontown has been selected as the internship placement for this term. In fact, EEUCC is a nonprofit organization aim to improve the residents' academic, social, economic and cultural experiences of the population through some different activities such as family-friendly activities, after-school programs, and summer enrichment programs (Home, n.d.). Actually, by practicing social work at the center with children of primary age, as well as with teachers and employees who have different morals and values, faiths and cultures, I have encountered many situations, problems, and ethical issues. Thus, the following lines will be about the description of one of these ethical dilemmas, referring to the National Association of Social Workers NASW code of ethics and reamer’s model of resolving ethical dilemmas, and brief details on how to solve such an ethical issue.
Clowney in his book defines the church in terms of the gospel: "To avoid bewilderment among these many views on the church, we need to concentrate on the apostolic church doctrine by which the New Testament church was established. The saving truth of the gospel is to be trusted, and proclaimed to the nations. The gospel is also to be lived, for holiness, no less than truth, marks the Spirit's work. Further, this believing, proclaiming and living take place
In the beginning, God created what is known today as “everything.” This complex idea of the singular vastness of the universe is what baffles even the most faithful of people. Many religions have a version of creation, but the biblical version that many Christians study today encompasses three big ideas: the creation of the universe, the creation of man, and man’s fall from grace. The fall of Adam and Eve, the main “characters” in the creation story, show a continuation of the creation story. I contend that the creation story does not necessarily stop, but that everyday, God further curates the complicated universe he created, and the fall of man is part of that continuous curation.
We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God. He is an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth, glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible worship, trust, and love. 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 complimentary offices in the great work of redemption.

Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. The Scriptures are clear that there is no other name by which man can be saved but by Christ alone (Acts 4:12). One can only be delivered by the power of sin through the Lord Jesus Christ. In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.” The same exclusive statement is made in John 10:7-8 when Jesus said, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers.”
The role and purpose of the Church is to create a community of people who believe in the same faith of God. The Church is a foundation of the faith in God. The Church allowed people to unite on common grounds and follow the words of God. The place of worship made people feel accountable because they were in it together. The Church raised the importance of prayer and spirituality because that is how one communicates to God. The Church emphasizes fellowship, dedication to the faith, selflessness. The Church gives power to the Christian people because they are a group and not individuals anymore.
