"Some wish to live within the sounds of church or chapel bells,
we want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell."
Jesus Saves Bikers Too!
Bikers For Christ Motorcycle Ministry began in August 1990.
It was founded in Marysville,California by
Pastor Fred Zariczny (Fred Z).
Many people comment favorably about our patch. It has many interesting designs and colors. We run a simple two-piece patch, that claims “no territorial” rocker, or “M.C.” designation. Our colors have been carefully and prayerfully chosen so as to not identify with or antagonize any other group.
Top Rocker: We have three colors on our top rocker – making no color claims whatsoever. The blue is a simple outline. The black symbolizes Jesus’ death on the cross & that we are to be dead to sin & alive to Christ. The red symbolizes the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ whose blood was shed for the sins of the world. We acknowledge that we are all sinners (no better than anyone else), and that we too need the cleansing blood of Christ in our lives on a daily basis – cleansing & forgiving our sins – washing us whiter than snow.
Sword: The silver sword in the center of the patch symbolizes Hebrews 4:12 & Ephesians 6:17 which clearly state that the “Sword of the Spirit” is the Word of God and that it cuts to the heart.
The “777” on the Sword: This symbolizes a trinity of perfection – Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
Wings: The wings are symbolic of the Holy Spirit’s presence & power in the life of the believer. They are in a myriad of colors so as to not identify with any other group.
Statement of Faith
Bikers for Christ Motorcycle Ministry has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe the only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s Agape love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
We believe worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We believe worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give great place to music in our worship.
We believe worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.
We believe worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshiping Him.
We believe in all the basic doctrines of historic Christianity.
We believe in the incinerate of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe that God is eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His substitution death on the cross, was bodily raised from the dead, ascended back to the right hand of the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us.
We believe in the personal, visible, second coming of Jesus Christ to the earth. He will return with His saints and set up a kingdom of which there will be no end.
After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.
We believe that all people are, by nature, separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord.
We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures, and that they are valid for today if they are exercised within the scriptural guidelines. We as believers are to covet the best gifts, seeking to exercise them in love that the whole Body of Christ might be edified. We believe that love is more important than the most spectacular gifts, and without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.
WE BELIEVE the Bible to exclusively be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
