Church in Clovis, CA putting Faith, Hope and Love into action
In essential beliefs, we have unity.
There is one body and one spirit…One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6 (NIV)
The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his vicarious and atoning death, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in his personal, future return to this earth in power and glory to rule over the nations.
That the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.
That regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
That the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.
That the baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.
In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to eternal separation from God.
In non-essential beliefs, we have liberty.
Accept (others in their faith), without passing judgment on disputable matters…Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand. Romans 14:1,4 (NIV)
In all our beliefs, we show love.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,but do not have love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
