Our Core Convictions

At Friends Community Church we believe in the basics of the Christian faith. We hold to the timeless truths that Jesus taught the disciples 2,000 years ago. We believe in the same core convictions that the Christian faith has held to throughout the ages.

We believe that the entire Bible is inspired of God, that it is trustworthy in all that it teaches and that it can be rightly interpreted and applied to us only by its Divine Author, the Holy Spirit.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the full deity of our Lord Jesus Christ: in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His vicarious and atoning death on the cross for our sins. We believe in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension and present reign at the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory to raise the dead, judge the world and make all things new.

We believe in the full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus Christ was fully human when He walked the face of the earth. We believe in the body that was broken and the blood that was shed for the forgiveness of sins.

We believe that man receives salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and that the presence of saving faith is re-vealed by a life lived in obedience to the will of God.

We believe that the essential baptism is that of the Holy Spirit, in which all who participate become members of the body of Christ.

We believe in the present ministry of Jesus Christ, who teaches, empowers, perfects and governs His people by means of His Holy Spirit in their hearts so that they obey and follow Him in spiritual unity.
