Blue River is a Covenant Brethren congregation of about 180 members, located in Northern Indiana. We hold to the following:
*Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Saviour of the world, and the Head of the Church, according to the Scriptures.
*The Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, plainly interpreted and absolutely trustworthy.
*The New Testament is our only creed, and our final rule of faith and practice.
*The only means of salvation is to personally accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
*Baptism of believers by trine immersion.
*War and the taking of human life is wrong for Christians.
*We practice feetwashing, the fellowship meal, and communion, and the Christian salutation.
*Christian men and women are to honor the New Testament headship order and its symbol, the sisters’ veiling.
*Anointing for healing, and the laying on of hands.
*Moderation in good things and abstinence from harmful things.
*Simplicity in life and service to others.
