Our Community

We are a community of Christians who live according to holy obligations which we believe are true to the character of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are called to humility, purity, justice and truth because Jesus modeled these for us. Along with the privileges and blessings of membership in such a community come responsibilities. The members of the Alton Bay Campmeeting Association take these responsibilities seriously.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

The biblical foundation of Christian community is expressed in Jesus’ two great commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind,” and, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt: 22:37-40). Jesus himself perfectly demonstrated the pattern: love for God, acted out in love for others, in obedience to God’s Word. Acknowledging our dependence on the power and grace of God, the members of the Alton Bay Campmeeting Association humbly covenant to endeavor to live according to this ideal.

The purposes of this community covenant are as follows:

  • To cultivate an atmosphere that encourages spiritual, moral and intellectual growth.

  • To integrate our lives around Christian principles and devotion to Christ.

  • To remove whatever may hinder us from our calling as a Christ-centered community.

  • To encourage one another to see that living for Christ involves dependence on God’s Spirit and obedience to his Word, rather than a passive acceptance of prevailing practices.

We believe that biblical standards will show themselves in a distinctly Christian way of life. This lifestyle involves practicing those attitudes and actions the Bible portrays as virtues, and avoiding those the Bible portrays as sinful.

Refusal to conduct oneself in harmony with the objectives and the rules of the Association as herein set forth shall constitute cause for termination of the privilege to occupy the grounds.

Statement of Our Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God. 

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. 

  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. 

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose in dwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. 

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. 

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
