Pastor Tommy Moore
Dr. Tommy Moore is a fervent servant of God and has faithfully been in his service for 73 years. He patiently and lovingly cares for his church family in Brighton.
At Messiah we are carrying on this ministry of the Lord as recorded in the Holy Bible: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord,” In every thing give thanks” “that the name of the Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you”. Pastor Moore and his wife Del Moore (who has gone to be with our Savior). Started Messiah Baptist Chuch of Denver in 1955. As a couple and still now Pastor Moore has been actively involved in projects to assist children and families in finding peace with God through having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Pastor Tommy Moore has a Doctorate in Counseling Psychology. In 1980 they also started Save A Child, Inc. which has been involved in projects such as providing homes for the homeless, a substance abuse rehab center, summer camps, Holy Land Tours, missions of mercy assisting families. Tommy's "Four Dynamos for Life;" Think right, Eat right, Do right, Believe right and you will Be alright! The Moore's also started a school in 1960 and have been rewarded as they assist parents in childrens' educational needs from kindergarten through college. In 2011 Pastor Moore was moved to open a church in Brighton Colorado. A message from Pastor Moore: "Every generation of children needs a generation of concerned successful adults to guide them into a vital relationship with God and their peers." Remember that immortal saying from the Holy Bible, "And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man."
Statement of faith
We hold that the Bible, the Holy Word of a Holy God, was not only free from error in the originals but also we believe God in His Singular providential care has KEPT HIS WORD all through the ages, right down to the present day as found in the King James Version. We consider this version our final and absolute authority, above and beyond all other authorities on earth.
God is one, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are infinite in glory, wisdom, holiness, justice, power and love.
Jesus Christ is true man and God, who in His incarnation was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. In His earthly ministry He lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. By the power of God, He was raised from the dead in the same body now glorified. He ascended into Heaven where, at the right hand of God, He continually makes intercession for us.
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son; regenerates the believing sinner; indwells, guides, instructs and empowers the believer for Godly living and service; comforts the children of God. The Holy Spirit guides and gives power to the church, the body of Christ, to fulfill the Great Commission, and convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.
Man was created in the image and likeness of God; but through the sin of Adam, man fell into sin and is, therefore, lost apart from Christ. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Salvation is the gift of God and includes the forgiveness of sins, the imputation of the Righteousness of Jesus Christ, and the gift of eternal life. Union with the triune God provides all blessings in this life and the life hereafter. Salvation is received by faith alone, apart from all good works and merit.
The church is composed of all those regenerated by the Spirit of God by whom they have been baptized into one body of whom Christ is the head. The purpose of the church is to witness concerning Jesus Christ according to the Scriptures, and to preach the Gospel among all nations.
Jesus Christ will come again to receive unto Himself those who believe in Him, that where He is, they may be also. He will come again personally and visibly to establish His kingdom. The resurrection of the believers will be unto eternal glory, and the resurrection of the unbelievers will be unto eternal punishment.
B (Biblical Authority):
God's Word is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. As the inspired, inerrant, and preserved Word of God, it bears the absolute authority of God Himself. No human opinion or church decree can usurp the teachings of Scripture. Whatever the Bible dictates, we, as Baptists accept as true. (2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, Psalm 12:6-7, 119:128)
A (Autonomy of the Local Church):
The local church is an independent body accountable to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Head of the church. The church is autonomous, or self-governing. No religious "hierarchy" outside the local church may dictate a church's beliefs or practices. (Colossians 1:18, Ephesians 3:
21, 1 Corinthians 11:3, 12:12)
P (Priesthood of the Believer):
Every believer is a priest of God and may enter into His presence in prayer directly through our Great High Priest, Jesus Christ. No other mediator is needed between God and His people. (1 Peter 2:9, Hebrews 4:14-16, 1 Timothy 2:5)
T (Two Ordinances):
The local church should keep the ordinances as delivered to the apostles in the New Testament: (1) Baptism by immersion for believers who have professed faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God and his propitiation for our sins by the shedding of his blood. Baptism is symbolic picturing the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
(2) The Lord's Supper which commemorates Christ's sacrificial death for our sins. Participants of the Lord's Supper are born again, baptized believer's of the local church body. (Mark 16:15-16, Luke 3:7- 8, Acts 8:12, 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, 1 Corinthians 11:2, 23-32)
I (Individual Soul Liberty):
Every person, whether saved or unsaved, has the liberty to choose what he believes about God. Baptists have always been opposed to religious persecution. This liberty, however, does not exempt one from responsibility to the Word of God or from accountability to God Himself. (Romans 14:5,12; 2 Corinthians 4:2, Titus 1:9)
S (Saved, Baptized Church Membership):
Every member of a Baptist church must be a born-again believer.
T (Two Offices):
Baptists have maintained only two offices in the local church as set forth in the New Testament: Pastor and deacon. The terms "pastor", "elder", and "bishop" or "overseer" all refer to the same office. (1 Timothy 3:1,10; 1 Peter 5:1,5; )
God has established both the church and the civil government, giving each its own distinct jurisdiction. No church or government should control each other, nor should there be any alliance between them. Believer's can and should promote righteousness in all areas of living, government included. (Romans 13:1-7, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 5:29, Proverbs 14:35, 29:2)
Five Steps of Faith
Would you take five steps of faith today and let God save your soul and give you a home in Heaven?
These are faith steps not foot steps. Faith is believing.
1. The first step of faith is simply believing God Loves you.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
2. The second step of faith is agreement with God that we are sinners
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
I John 1:8 “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”
3. The thirds step of faith we take is to discover that Jesus Christ is my own personal Saviour in taking the punishment for my sins.
1 Peter 3:18 “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
4. The fourth step of faith is to actually receive Jesus as your own personal Lord and Saviour
John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
Acts 16:31 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and that you died for me. I now receive you into my heart as my Saviour and my Lord. I give you myself. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus name, Amen.
Is this your desire? If you truly believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, that his blood paid for your sins then confess this now in your heart, tell him directly. Jesus will reconcile you to himself and you will be saved. I can tell you by the authority of the Word of God that you are saved right now and for all eternity.
Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
John 10:28 “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”
You may ask, “What happens when we sin?”
I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Our eternal salvation depends upon what Christ Jesus had done for us, not what we do or don't do.
5. Your Fifth step of faith is you publicly telling others that you made a commitment to Christ.
We have discovered one of the best ways to take care of this step is on Sunday morning at church fellowship. Our pastor will give you an opportunity to tell fellow believers of your wonderful and exciting commitment to Christ. Feel free to come and join us this coming Sunday!
