STATEMENT
OF FAITH

Life.Family exists
to bring transformation
to every life by the power of Jesus Christ

We measure transformation in three ways:

1. Awakening Spiritually:

Sunday morning experience and other
large-group spiritual settings.

2. Connecting in
Authentic Relationships
:

LifeGroups

3. Serving:

Serve the church,
the community and the world.

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.

We believe in one God who has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  • Genesis 1:126273:22
  • Psalm 90:2
  • Matthew 28:19
  • 2 Corinthians 13:14

Jesus is the Son of God.

Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.

  • Matthew 1:22, 23
  • Isaiah 9:6
  • John 1:1-5
  • Hebrews 4:14-15
  • 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
  • Romans 1:3-4
  • Acts 1:9-11
  • Colossians 2:9-10
  • 1 Timothy 6:14-15

The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian from salvation.

The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

  • Acts 1:8
  • John 14:16-17, 16:7-13
  • Galatians 5:25
  • 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16
  • Ephesians 1:13
  • 2 Corinthians 13:14
  • 1 Peter 1:2

The Bible is God’s Word to us.

The Bible was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error.

  • 2 Timothy 3:16
  • 2 Peter 1:20-21
  • Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6
  • Proverbs 30:5
  • Isaiah 55:11

People are the supreme object of God’s creation.

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our life.

  • Genesis 1:27
  • Isaiah 53:6
  • Romans 3:23
  • Isaiah 59:1-2
  • Psalm 139:13-16
  • Colossians 2:13-15

Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it.

We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

  • Romans 6:23
  • Ephesians 2:8-9
  • John 14:6
  • Romans 5:1, 5:8, 10:9-10

People will exist eternally with or without God.

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.

  • John 3:16, 14:17
  • Romans 6:23
  • Revelation 20:15
  • Philippians 2:5-11
  • Matthew 25:31-34
  • Matthew 25:41

Believers are told to excitedly await Jesus’ second coming.

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures.

  • Matthew 24:30
  • Acts 1:9-11
  • 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
  • 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8

The power of Jesus Christ gives us authority over disease.

Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. it is given as a sign, which is to follow believers. it is also a part of Jesus’ work on the cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit.

  • Psalm 103:2-3
  • Isaiah 53:5
  • Matthew 8:16-17
  • Mark 16:17-18
  • Acts 8:6-7
  • James 5:14-16

These church sacraments we celebrate:

Water Baptism:

Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.

Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to “fulfill all righteousness.”

The Lord’s Supper:

A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.

Marriage:

We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a covenant, a sacred bond between one man and one woman, instituted by and publicly entered into before God.
