ABOUT THE FIELDS CHURCH
The Fields Church exists to help people find and follow Jesus. This has been consistent over the years since we began as a church nearly 100 years ago. We have a rich heritage of helping people know God.
AS A LIFE-GIVING CHURCH, OUR HEARTBEAT IS FOR EVERYONE AT THE FIELDS CHURCH TO KNOW GOD, FIND FREEDOM, DISCOVER THEIR PURPOSE, AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
As a church, we want to be influential in Coles County, across central Illinois, and eventually be a valuable resources for other rural churches throughout the Midwest. We’re so thankful that God is enlarging our territory and allowing us to be for our neighbors.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy. The Lord Jesus Christ is both God and man and is the only one who can reconcile us to God. Each time we partake of communion we remember Jesus lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
SIN, SALVATION AND EMPOWERMENT
We believe sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. In order to receive forgiveness we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus Christ and submit to His will for our lives. God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and powerful lives in order to help others more effectively. In order to live the holy, fruitful, and power-filled lives God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water, set our mind on Him and His purpose, and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe God has individually equipped us and corporately gathered us as His living body so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives, which is to worship God, strengthen the Church, and share the Gospel with the community in which we live.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised and will rule and reign on this earth. History will conclude as the wicked are judged and the righteous enter a new heaven and a new earth.
