Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.
Who We Are
Prospect has a long, rich history of being a shining light for Jesus Christ in Harnett County. The church was officially organized in 1846, but had existed for several years prior. Over the years, Prospect has served the community through caring, serving and sharing the gospel. We continue to be a place that is centered upon Jesus Christ and we desire to see lives transformed for God’s glory.
What We Believe
God – We believe that God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Righteous Ruler of the universe.
Jesus Christ – He is God’s unique Son; the only one of a kind. The Scripture teaches that He is God revealed in flesh.
Holy Spirit – All of the attributes of God are ascribed to the Holy Spirit by the Scriptures. It is He who convicts and convinces men of their sin.
The Bible – God used holy men to write the Scriptures. They are, in both the Old and New Testaments, the very words God intended us to have.
Man – God created man in a state of innocence. Man, being tempted by Satan, yielded and willfully disobeyed God, becoming a sinner and incurring God’s judgment upon sin.
God’s Relationship to His Creatures and Creation – God exercises a wise and benevolent providence over all beings and things. He maintains the laws of nature and performs special acts as the highest welfare of mankind and His created order of things require.
Salvation – Man receives pardon and forgiveness for his sins when he admits to God that he is a sinner, when in godly sorrow he turns from them and trusts in the work of Christ as redemption for his sin.
Who Can be Saved? – It is God’s will that all be saved, but since man has the power of choice, God saves only those who repent of their sin and believe in the work of Christ on the cross.
