What does Christ Church believe?
- We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and is without error in the original autographs. The Scriptures are the only infallible judge for matters of life and faith.
- We believe that all men are sinners, separated from God and under His wrath and curse. We further believe that unregenerate men are unable to save themselves, or do anything to merit their own salvation and that in their natural state they are unable and unwilling to seek after God.
- We believe that salvation is by God’s grace alone, by which God draws men to Jesus by the Holy Spirit, giving them a new nature through which they see their need of Christ, repent of their sins, and trust in the Lord Jesus as He is offered in the Gospel. Because God alone knows His sheep, the Gospel is proclaimed to all men calling them to faith and repentance.
- We believe that Jesus Christ, who is the eternal Son of God, without beginning or end, became man, fulfilled God’s Law, and died to atone for the sins of His people. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man.
- We believe that the Holy Spirit gives Christians that daily grace and strength they need to live a holy life that brings glory and honor to God.
- We believe that the Lord Jesus, who now rules and reigns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords will, at the end of the age return to earth, visibly, physically, and gloriously, to judge all men and to receive His Church to Himself.
Beyond those summary statements, our pastors, elders, and deacons subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. Those documents give more detail and speak to a wider scope of teachings.
