Our Beliefs

What We Believe

We are a loving, Bible-believing, Spirit-Filled Family church seeking to share God’s love with everyone. We are a part of the Church of God based in Cleveland, Tennessee.  Most people come to church with many questions and we understand that.  We could sit at your favorite coffee shop every day from open to close and talk about nothing but the depth of God’s greatness and we would still not cover all there is to know.  But God can be known, and that is why we come together to worship Him, and live out the Life that Jesus said can be found in Him.  We believe there is a framework of essentials that must be held in order to have a relationship with God.  A list of some of those essential beliefs can be found below. 

  1. We Believe in one God–Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  2. We Believe God is the creator of man and all things.

  3. We Believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son and Savior of the world.

  4. We Believe the Holy Spirit dwells within every Christian.

  5. We Believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for all matters of faith.

  6. We Believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned, and as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.

  7. We Believe salvation (the forgiveness of sins) comes by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ (His death on the cross).

  8. We Believe the Bible teaches that the pattern to follow to receive Jesus as Savior is to believe in Christ as God’s Son and Savior of the world, to repent of personal sin, to confess Christ as Lord, and to be immersed in baptism.

  9. We Believe the church is the body and bride of Christ, founded on the day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere.   

  10. We Believe death seals the eternal destiny of each person. The saved will inherit eternal life; the unsaved, eternal separation from God.

  11. We believe the Bible teaches that God intends for marriage to be a monogamous, life-long loving relationship between a man and a woman and that His design for sex is exclusively within the context of a Biblical marriage.
