Who we are...
Welcome to the Ankeny Gospel Hall. We are an independent assembly of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ from all walks of life. We seek to carry out the teaching of the New Testament regarding the pattern for the local church. We are non-denominational. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that though repentance and faith in Him, all may receive eternal life and the forgiveness of sins. It is our desire to provide an environment that is welcoming and where you can be introduced to the truths that God has given us in the Bible, as well as grow in your spiritual experience. Families and children are very important to us. We desire to provide a Biblical foundation for spiritual and moral training for all who attend. No public collections are ever taken and we never appeal for funds or pledges.
What we believe...
We believe that the Bible is the living, unchanging Word of God. Every word is inspired by God. It is completely relevant and reliable and is sufficient to meet all our spiritual needs.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God and that He became a man in order to die on the cross as a substitute for sinners. He rose from the dead three days later and today He is in Heaven at the Father’s right hand.
We believe that every person is born with a sinful nature. Our sin separates us from God and renders us helpless to save ourselves. Only through the death of Christ can we be cleansed and forgiven.
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith. Eternal life is found exclusively in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Salvation is obtained by personally receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
We believe that Heaven is the eternal home of the saved and that Hell is the abode of the lost.
