GRACE POINT STATEMENT OF FAITH
We acknowledge that the Lord is far greater than can be put into words. We yearn to love and honor God with everything we are: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
We believe there is only one true God, who is revealed to us in three distinct persons: God the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in God the Father Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and everything in it. We believe God the Father is Lord: all-powerful, all knowing, and ever-present in all the universe, with authority over all creation.
We believe He desires that all humanity would come to know Him as God and have a vital loving relationship with Him. We believe He is the glue that holds everything together and we admit our need of Him in all we do.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the One and only Son of the Father and has existed eternally with the Father. We believe that out of love for mankind He willingly came to earth to reveal God’s nature and purposes and that His life, death, and resurrection had profound spiritual ramifications for us.
The center of all we are, all we do and all our hopes is Jesus Christ. We believe His death has the power to erase the penalty for our violations of God’s law. This gift of forgiveness and eternal life is only available to those who acknowledge they are unable to live according to God’s standards and gratefully accept the means of rescue He has provided: Jesus’ sacrificial act of love.
We believe Jesus supernaturally was raised from death to life again and has returned to heaven, where He waits until the time for His triumphant return to Earth as King.
We believe that because Christ’s mission was to “seek and save the lost” and his command to His disciples was to “go and make disciples of all nations” that each of us and every ministry of our church must be committed to sharing the good news of hope in ways that will reach those who still do not believe and will help mature those who have come to faith in God.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who has existed throughout eternity with the Father and the Son. We believe He works in the lives of those who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior, changing them and giving them a life of purpose, peace, and hope. We believe He has the capability to do more than we can ever imagine within us. We believe that the Holy Spirit is actively working in the world today to empower those who know God to accomplish His will and to awaken those who are spiritually “asleep” (do not know God) so that they can hear the good news of Christ.
We affirm that the Bible is unique, given to man by God, and transcribed through the power of the Holy Spirit’s workings in godly men. We believe the Bible to be true, without error in its original languages. We use the Bible to learn about God and as a guide for our living.
