Who Are We?

- Mesquite Brethren Assembly is a group of Christians who meet simply in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayer

- We are believers in the Lord Jesus who desire to follow New Testament principles of life, fellowship, worship, ministry and mission

- Our origins are in what has been called the ''Brethren movement". Some distinctive beliefs include: the non-sectarian nature of the church, the priesthood of all believers, the weekly celebration of the Lord's Supper, and the leadership of Christ in His church through the Holy Spirit

Our Beliefs

- That the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, are the Word of God, and the final authority in faith and conduct.

- In one God, the creator of man and all things, eternally existing in three Persons in a three fold relationship that of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

- That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is God incarnate, the God-Man.

- That man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; that Adam's sin is imputed to the whole race of mankind; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature; and that when they reach the state of moral responsibility becomes sinners before God in thought, word, and deed.

- The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe on Him are freely justified before God and stand before Him accepted in the character and merit of Jesus Christ.

- In the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, in His ascension into heaven, and that in His present glorified body He is the Head of the Church, the Lord of the individual believer, the High Priest over the house of God, and the Advocate in the family of God.

- In the personal, imminent, pretribulational, and premillenial second coming of the Christ; first to receive His own to Himself, and later to set up His earthly kingdom and to reign over redeemed Israel and all nations; that is, to bring peace and blessing into the whole world.

- All who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour are born again of the Holy Spirit and Word of God, receive the Holy Spirit and a new nature, and also are baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ.

- All who are born again should receive water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and Worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth.

- In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the unsaved.
