Christ Church has many core beliefs that are the foundation of who we are and what we believe. One of these foundational beliefs, We believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible. We believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God and its teachings are applicable to all generations and all cultures. In fact, rather than becoming less relevant in our fast-paced, highly educated, technology driven world, the Truth and how it should be lived out is is just as important now than ever.
Hebrews 13:8 teaches us “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and for ever.” If He has not changed, then neither has the truth that the disciples of Christ taught us in how to know Him and be saved. The early church taught salvation is obtained by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. And true faith is evidenced by obedience to God's Word, which instructs a person to do as the Lord Jesus emphatically taught for both salvation and Christian living.
For instance the Apostle Peter; who before the death and resurrection of Christ, at times was critical in judgment and even fails in his faith toward the Lord's plan of salvation. He even denied the Lord three times just hours before the crucifixion. When Peter is restored and "converted" on the day of pentecost, He then gives the biblical pattern that he himself obeyed. In Acts chapter 2:38 Where the question was asked of Peter, what they should do for the sin they committed, He responds with the pattern... repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and you shall receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Apostle Peter goes on to say that this bible pattern is offered to you, your children and all those that are a far off. In other words... its for everyone.
