ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

     Christians for Syracuse is the oldest evangelical organization in Central New York that exists to foster church and personal relationships across denominational lines. It was organized in 1974, and was affiliated with the National Association of Evangelicals for over thirty years.

 

     Meetings are attended by a good cross-section of believers from a variety of Christian persuasions.

     The stated purposes of Christians for Syracuse are:

  • To unite publicly, across denominational and other lines, those are solidly identified with historic, biblical Christianity.

  • To encourage our members to stand firm for the Gospel by regular schedule of meetings which facilitate mutual nurture and challenge.

  • To publicize and sponsor, when possible and appropriate, public expressions of our Lord’s words and works, in joint evangelical witness to the larger community.

     Membership is open to all who subscribe to our statement of faith and desire fellowship with us. Call 315.480.1232 for application.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

  • We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
