The Triune God Makes Himself Known
We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To Him be all honor, glory and praise forever!

The Bible
All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God's redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation we affirm these additional Essential of our faith:

The Person and Work of Jesus
Jesus Christ, the living Word, become flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.

The Work of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. he convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.

Our Need
Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God's free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, thereby justifies them in His sight. Only such as are born of the Holy Spirit and received Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.

The Church
The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ. The Church finds her visible, yet imperfect, expression in local congregations where the Word of God is preached in its purity and the sacraments are administered in their integrity; where scriptural discipline is practiced, and where loving fellowship is maintained. For her perfecting, she awaits the return of her Lord.

Come Lord Jesus
Jesus Christ will come again to the earth-personally, visibly, and bodily - to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. "Even so, come, Lord Jesus." (Rev. 22:20)

Our Mission
The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. Obedience to the Great Commission requires total commitment to 'Him who loved us and gave Himself for us,' He calls us to a life of self-denying love and service. 'For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.' (Eph. 2:10)

Dear Cup family and friends,

as well as information in our own county regarding dropping numbers of Covid-19 cases are
making the following policy changes:

    1. Starting on June 6, 2021, masks will be optional in the sanctuary and in the rest of the
      building. There will not be designated sections for masking or non-masking in the
      sanctuary, but please continue to be sensitive and respectful of others around you!
      .
    2. Seating the in the sanctuary will continue to be organized using social distancing.
      .
    3. Communion will continue to be offered using the individual sanitized containers through
      at least August 1.
      .
    4. Our worship service will continue in its current format. The possibility of adding more
      congregational singing to the service will be considered as we continue to monitor the
      Covid case load in our area.
      .
    5. Vacation Bible School will be using masks and/or social distancing for those portions of
      VBS that are indoors. Please check our VBS registration page on the website for more
      details.

The church has done a tremendous job of working together through the 15 months we have
faced this pandemic. Thank you for ‘bearing with one another in love’ (Ephesians 4:2), and
may we do so more than ever as we are (hopefully) reaching the final stages of this journey!

Blessings,
Pastor Scott and the Cup Session
