Senior Pastor: David Rogers
What We Believe: It is important to know what one believes, and the doctrines of our church are simply a statement of what we believe. We feel it is important to organize our beliefs so we may be honest with inquirers and maintain the propositions we hold to be true. The Bible The solid foundation of all our beliefs is the Bible. We are firmly convinced that the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments are God's Word, revealed to man through human authors. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error and the ultimate authority for faith and life. We preach and teach God's Word in its simplicity, beauty, and power because it is the eternal truth for God's people in a lost and confused world. Jesus Christ We believe that Jesus of Nazareth was and is truly God and truly man. We believe He lived a sinless life, died an undeserved death on the cross in the place of sinners and rose again from the dead on the third day, according to the Scriptures. We believe that Jesus Christ will one day visibly return to the earth in power to rule over all His creatures. God, Man, and Salvation We believe that God is entirely sovereign over the world because this is His world. He created it and He sustains it. Because man is "dead in sin," we believe he can never come to Christ unless God first makes him spiritually alive. Such a "born-again" person will then receive Christ, turn from his sin and receive eternal life. There is nothing anyone can do to earn this salvation - it is a gift, not earned by works, but given by God alone. We believe that all people from all times who have believed in God and His salvation are saved by faith and are members of the church, the body of Christ. Salvation has been and will be only by grace through faith. We believe that God has entered into a special relationship with His people and their children, promising to bless them as they live in obedience to His Word. This is not our entire theology. It is a brief overview of beliefs which may distinguish us from other denominations. All of our teachings are based on hundreds of years of detailed study of the entire Bible by great Christian scholars. A more thorough statement of our doctrine may be found in the Westminster Confession of Faith; however our ultimate commitment is to the Bible and to God, to whom we give all glory.

As we get ready for our second week of online worship, show us what your "Livestream Worship" looks like at home!
Join us for Livestream Worship this Sunday at 10:30 am!
Q: Where is the new worship guide?
A: On Sunday morning, you can find the worship guide and sermon text on the church website (https://www.tnpc.org/).
Q: I'm going just a little stir-crazy sheltering in place! How can I stay in touch with my church family?
A: Of course, you can always make a post here to get a conversation started. But your elder may reach out to you via Zoom or phone. Feel free to contact them first - the more we communicate right now, the better.
Q: Can my Disciple Group/Bible Study/Small Group/Life on Life Group still meet?
A: The session has provided a Zoom account so that you can still meet "face to face".
Today and every day, please reach out and stay connected with your brothers and sisters in Christ. None of us individually can know about every need, so communicate! If you are struggling, or if you know others who are, please contact us.
Finally, a reminder from Psalm 112 in this time of frightening news and far-reaching crises:
"He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is steady;
he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries."
As Christ's people we are not afraid of bad news, because our trust is in the Lord Jesus to supply our need in difficult times (and ALL times!). He is our Shepherd who has promised to bring us through the storms until one day He will eventually triumph over all of our enemies. He will even triumph over the last enemy....death. Even death will not have the final say for Christ's people! (1 Corinthians 15:26)

Pastor Imad preaching at True Vine Baptist Church on Zahle. Imad preached on Christ and the rich man in Mark 10:17-31 - explaining that Christ did for us what the rich man failed to do. Christ - who was rich - gave up all to become poor for us that we (through His poverty) might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9).
[06/11/18] So sorry to hear about David Hopkins! Imad and I asked the Lord to bring successful surgery and quick healing. We know this is a painful time for David & Becky already - so asked the Lord to use this in a powerful way for their good and sanctification as He promises (Romans 8:28).
