We are an old church in a new world. Becks was founded in 1880 and for nearly 140 years has proclaimed the good news of Jesus in Winston Salem. We invite you to join us as we continue to be a church that exists to see God glorified by all peoples in all places.
WHO WE ARE
We desire to be disciples making disciples for God's glory and our joy!
WHAT WE BELIEVE
As those who know God, we believe it necessary to set forth in a concise fashion the cornerstone truths of our church as guided by Scripture. Our Statement of Faith summarizes essential Christian beliefs, shows unity in Christ, and guards the church from error.
WHAT WE DO
We gather together each Sunday to worship God through song, prayer, and the preaching and teaching of the scriptures. Throughout the week there are various groups and activities that take place to promote community and discipleship. In all that we do, we seek to glorify God and be ever molded into the image of Christ.
WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?
The gospel is the good news about what Jesus Christ has done to reconcile sinners to God. Here’s the whole story:
The one and only God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him (Gen. 1:26-28).
But we sinned and cut ourselves off from him (Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23).
In his great love, God sent his Son Jesus to come as king and rescue his people from their enemies—most significantly their own sin (Ps. 2; Luke 1:67-79).
Jesus established his kingdom by acting as both a mediating priest and a priestly sacrifice—he lived a perfect life and died on the cross, thus fulfilling the law himself and taking on himself the punishment for the sins of many (Mark 10:45; John 1:14; Heb. 7:26; Rom. 3:21-26, 5:12-21); then he rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted his sacrifice and that God’s wrath against us had been exhausted (Acts 2:24, Rom. 4:25).
He now calls us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness (Acts 17:30, John 1:12). If we repent of our sins and trust in Christ, we are born again into a new life, an eternal life with God (John 3:16).
