Beliefs

The Church is God’s Plan A (There is no Plan B).

The Church is God’s Plan A established over 2000 years ago. It exists to share the Good News of Jesus with the world and equip those who follow him. While our church owns a building in North County, The Church is the gathering and growing of God’s people in community.

We will exist eternally with or apart from God.

We are passing through earth with an eternal destination. We will exist eternally either with or apart from God. To be eternally separated from God is Hell, and to be in eternal union with Him is Heaven.

Baptism is a command from Jesus.

Baptism is our public declaration that we have accepted the gift of salvation through the work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

God is the creator and ruler of all things.

God is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is the Son of God.

Jesus Christ is both completely human, and completely God. Jesus came as the perfect sacrifice who took on our sin and shame so we could take on His righteousness through his resurrection. Jesus is the substitution satisfying the penalty of sin which is death.

The Holy Spirit is essential.

The Holy Spirit is equal with God the Father and the Son. He enters our lives at the moment of salvation and is our daily helper in understanding truth, guiding our actions, and accessing the living power of God. We live by the Spirit’s guidance daily.

The Bible is God’s active, living Word.

It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because each word is inspired by the Spirit of God, it is without error and forever relevant to our daily lives.

You are made in the image of God.

You were made on purpose, in the image of God, for fellowship with Him. Everyone is created with unique giftings, purpose, and worthy of respect and dignity.

We live in the messy middle.

Our conversations will always orient toward conflict if we don’t fiirst establish the rules of grace. We may not agree on every non-essential topic surrounding faith, but there is always a seat at the table for you.
