What We Believe

What We Believe

Mission:  To glorify God and advance His kingdom by loving others to Christ

Vision: To make multiplying disciples and launch new River Ridge campuses

We believe that the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God and without error in the original writings. They are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the final authority for all Christian faith and life. Read More

We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Read More

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived in perfect obedience to the Father and offered Himself on the cross as a sacrifice in payment for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead as witnessed by many, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the God the Father, He now is our High Priest and Advocate. Read More

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict mankind, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, fill, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service. Read More

We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin through disobedience and is, therefore, separated from God. It is only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit that salvation and spiritual life can be obtained. Read More

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe. Only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.Read More

We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as the means of salvation. Read More

We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head. Read More

We believe that the church is the continuation of the Lord’s presence and ministry in the
world. Just as Christ walked in obedience to the Father, so we are to do the same in the power of the Holy Spirit. Ultimately the church will be presented as Christ’ bride, pure and righteous, at the wedding supper of the Lamb. Read More

We believe in the personal, pre-millennial and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Read More

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment. Read More
