Kingaroy Christian Fellowship
Continuing to shine the light from His Word
As a local church we consider ourselves to be distinctly Baptistic in the Historical sense, we adhere to the King James Bible as the word of God, the Deity of Jesus Christ, the Body of Christ, and the Second coming of Jesus Christ. Our sole purpose is to teach and preach Gods word and provide opportunities for people to grow in their Bible knowledge and faith in Jesus Christ.
This page is an introductory to give a brief explanation about our fellowship, Kingaroy Christian fellowship. ” Many Australians today have a perception of what does it mean to be part of a church which largely has arrived in the human psyche, by religion, traditions, denominations or movements.
Jesus shows us by way of a type, that God likens the believer as being like sheep that need a Shepherd. As with sheep the need is the right pasture, essential for growth and well being of the sheep. Jesus said in John 10:11 “I am the good Shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. God has given us the local church to fulfil those two principles in the life of the Believer, the right pasture ( Food) and the need of the Shepherd himself.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The above principle is the Biblical purpose of a local assembly, which we have adopted, by being part of the Lords work. Our sole purpose then is to teach and preach Gods word and provide opportunities for people to grow in their Bible knowledge and faith in Jesus Christ.
Grow in your faith.
The Bible does the building, the building is our faith in Jesus Christ, the Bible dosent put the emphasis on us to become a Christian worker or for us to worship, without first being devoted to him. It is not a creed that God has asked us to follow in the Bible but Jesus Christ himself. When the Bible does the building our devotion is stronger our walk is defined and our worship and work are directed.
The most important thing in the Christian life is our walk. Fellowship with like minded believers will strengthen our walk and faith. Gods requirement for the Believer to walk by faith Hebrews 11:6 But without faith is ti is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. The Bible uses the word must, the same as what Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:7 you must be born again for salvation and the only way to please God is to have faith in Him.
When Mankind fell in in the Garden Genesis chapter three, mans will was not corrupted but his nature was. That meant that man can not work or do anything with the fallen nature we have inherited from Adam. This changed mans fellowship with God. Salvation therefore is God doing something for man which man can not do . God did not give us religion, good works, morality for mans salvation, but sent his Son Jesus Christ who died for our sins, was buried and rose again. ( That is the good news the Gospel)
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Then how do I get saved? or go to Heaven, if I can’t do anything for it myself. Well It is quite simple the Bible says whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved Romans 10:9-13. So there is something the Bible tells us to do and that is to ask Jesus Christ to be your Saviour by acknowledging what he has done for you.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
If you realise your need, how that Jesus Christ died for your sins, then by faith call upon him.
Baptism in the Bible, is showing a good conscience towards God as a step of obedience, after some one has trusted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. This means that a person is being Baptised as a believer, not to be saved but to be a witness of the Lords Salvation. Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are yes saved through faith and not of yourselves: it is a gift of God.
There are seven Baptisms in the Bible, beginning with Moses, and not all of them have the same purpose, for example Johns Baptism was for the Jews preparation of the first coming of Jesus Christ and Peters Baptism in Acts two is similar.
The most important one in the Bible is the Baptism by the Spirit of God in 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit
This Baptism takes place the moment a person believes Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that he heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after you that ye believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, This immediately gives the Believer eternal security, as and now they are part of the family of God. Water Baptism dosent put anyone in anything, but is a picture of Salvation in Jesus Christ.
