Sagu Baptist Fellowship

Organization Description: 

Sagu Baptist Fellowship is situated at Sagu in the Upper West, Ghana. It is a small church in a remote community which most of the church people are women, the aged, children and with only two men. These two men are Pastor Mathew Yennaah and Deacon David Sun-aabu. This church has an old small building where we do meet for worship. The Sunday children do not have a building for worship. Therefore, they sit under a shear nut tree every Sunday for worship. Whenever it is raining, they could not have their classes. They have to be combined with the adults and most at times the children do not benefit from the teaching. Therefore, this church needs a Sunday school building.

Mission Statement: 

We desire to be involved in both home and foreign missions as individuals and as a body corporately. In order to do this, we believe the members and friends of the congregation first need to be adequately informed and motivated. This educational process is achieved by annual missions conferences that emphasize all aspects of missions as well as periodic seminars and messages during the year, not only from the pulpit, but through adult classes where discussion and feedback is encouraged. As the body is properly informed, they are then given ample opportunities to pray and decide where and how the Lord would have them involve both their energies and their financial resources. SBF does not have a separate missions budget because we believe that the Scriptures teach the local church is not to be the chief agent through which funds are channeled to various mission boards and agencies without congregational approval and involvement. It is to be the sole responsibility of each believer in Christ to decide where his financial gifts should be given and then to stay personally informed on a regular basis rather than surrendering this role to a church committee (II Corinthians 9:7a). This is not to say that CFC does not become involved as a church corporately in supporting missions. Yearly we are taking part in "special projects" and support for various missionaries. Many are those who have been previously involved at CFC or have been "thrust out" from our midst who we are able to stand behind and confirm as qualified for the ministry. We realize that this approach to missions is different than some, but it has proven to develop a mature attitude among believers at CFC and has been more than effective as shown by surveys taken among the members revealing a very high level of personal involvement. We are thoroughly committed to missions at Christian Family Chapel and desire to see each believer properly educated and personally involved in this vital New Testament ministry.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

A. The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written were inspired of God, hence free from error. They constitute the only infallible guide in faith and practice.
B. There is one God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, infinite in being and perfection. He exists eternally in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are of one substance and equal in power and glory.
C. God created Adam and Eve in his own image. By disobedience, they fell from their sinless state through the temptation by Satan. This fall plunged humanity into a state of sin and spiritual death, and brought upon the entire race the sentence of eternal death. From this condition we can be saved only by the grace of God, through faith, on the basis of the work of Christ, and by the agency of the Holy Spirit.
D. The eternally pre-existent Son became incarnate without human father, by being born of the Virgin Mary. Thus, in the Lord Jesus Christ, divine and human natures were united in one Person, both natures being whole, perfect, and distinct. To effect salvation, he lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the sinner's substitute, shedding his blood for the remission of sins. On the third day he rose from the dead in the body which had been laid in the tomb. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, where he performs the ministry of intercession. He shall come again, personally and visibly, to complete his saving work and to consummate the eternal plan of God.
E. The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Triune God. He applies to man the work of Christ. By justification and adoption we are given a right standing before God; by regeneration, sanctification, and glorification our nature is renewed.
F. When we have turned to God in penitent faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are accountable to God for living a life separated from sin and characterized by the fruit of the Spirit. It is our responsibility to contribute by word and deed to the universal spread of the Gospel.
G. At the end of the age, the bodies of the dead shall be raised. The righteous shall enter into full possession of eternal bliss in the presence of God, and the wicked shall be condemned to eternal death.
