We are an assembly of bible-believing Christians from all walks of life, who meet regularly as a local church at 213 Walnut Street, Saugus Massachusetts.
We call the building a Gospel Hall only because one of our primary interests is to carry out our Lord’s commission in Mark 16:15 – “Go into all the world and preach the gospel…” We believe that God’s message of Salvation is his single most important communication to man – displaying his love for us, in that “…God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, the whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16.
We firmly believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, and worthy of being our only creed and our infallible guide. We have a deep commitment to Biblical Christianity.
We gather as a local assembly in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, claiming His promise that “where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). We have no denominational affiliation and are self-supported so we have no visible earthly head or leader, but are solely responsible to Christ who is the risen Head of the church.
This biblical pattern of simplicity in the local church is laid forth throughout the New Testament, and we strive to follow this pattern in our gatherings and practices. In our meetings you will see the Headship of Christ displayed, the priesthood of all believers practiced, a plurality of elders in leadership, clear gospel preaching, a weekly remembrance of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Lord’s Supper, sound bible-based teaching and programs, and a genuine personal interest in you and your family.
The Gospel that we preach is that “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures”, that “he was buried and that he rose again on the third day according to the scriptures” (1Corinthians 15:3-4). The bible teaches that there must be a personal experience of discovering our guiltiness before God as sinners and accepting Christ as personal Savior and Lord. This is accomplished only by genuine personal faith in what Christ has accomplished for us, and trusting that God is, as He has said, satisfied with that work.
We place a great importance on family structure. The development and future of our children and young people is vital to us, and we are not content only with their good health and education, but desire that they each would look to Christ individually for eternal salvation, as well as recieve quality spiritual guidance and training while they are young.
