Buffalo Covenant Church

Buffalo Covenant Church is located in Buffalo, Minnesota. As a church we believe the following: The Bible We believe that the Bible, consisting of Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God. It is without error in its original writings. It is the complete revelation of the will of God concerning salvation and all matters of life. (2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:16-17) God We believe in one God, the Creator of all things. Yet this God is manifest in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God has limitless knowledge, limitless power, and limitless presence. In His holiness He shares with us His grace and mercy. (Genesis 1:1, Psalm 90:2, Psalm 139:2-4, 7-12, Deuteronomy 6:4) Jesus Christ We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born of Mary who was a virgin. He is both fully God and fully man. He came to die, purchasing our redemption upon the cross, being crucified by Pontius Pilate. He was buried and then arose on the third day, ascended into glory and is now seated at the Father’s right hand interceding for us. (Matthew 1:18, Luke 1:27, John 1:14, John 1:29, Hebrews 7:25) The Holy Spirit We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He glorifies Jesus Christ in all that He does. He convicts the world of sin, bears witness to the power of Jesus Christ, and intercedes on our behalf before the Father in heaven. He indwells, guides and empowers believers so that effective service for Christ can be accomplished. (Acts 5:3-4, John 16:7, John 15:26, Romans 8:26) You may visit our website at: buffalocov.org

Luke does not share with us how long the interval of time is between the close of Acts 4 and the beginning of Acts 5. There does seem to be a longer interval though, enough so that perhaps some apathy or complacency has begun to creep into the Church. When that happens, God gives a “wake-up” call to refocus us. In the case of the Early Church, this “wake-up call” involved an offering. Barnabas brought an offering from his heart; Ananias and Sapphira brought an offering from pretense. The former was blessed; the latter was judged, and the judgment was severe. Oh the impact that judgment had upon the Church. It was a cause for self-evaluation. The Church would need this “wake-up call” as the first vestiges of persecution began. Complacency would be a thing of the past; dependence upon God would be the demand of the hour moving forward.
