WHAT WE BELIEVE

"What comes into our minds when we think about
God is the most important thing about us."  

- A.W. Tozer

Here at Real Hope Community Church...

WE BELIEVE...

In one, sovereign, unchangeable God, eternally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 45:22, Malachi 3:6, John 1:1-5, Genesis 1:1-27)

WE BELIEVE...

In the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ; that He was fully God and fully man. (John1:1-5)

WE BELIEVE...

In His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, teaching, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, His perpetual intercession for Christian believers and His personal and visible return. (Luke 1:26-56 & Luke 2:1-17, Hebrews 4:15, Mark 6:1-3, Ephesians 1:7, Luke  24:42, 39, John 20:25-27, Luke 24:38-39, Hebrews 4:14, Mt. 24:37, 39, 42, 44)

WE BELIEVE...

The Bible is the fully inspired Word of God, and that it is our only reliable guide for faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 1:1)

WE BELIEVE...

That the convicting, regenerating, sanctifying, and empowering work of the Holy Spirit is necessary to accomplish salvation, and that this salvation has been freely offered to every person who repents their sins and accepts the atoning death of Jesus Christ on the cross. (John 16:8, 15:26-27, Acts 2:38 & 4:12, John 3:16)

WE BELIEVE...

That people are sinners by nature and choice and therefore condemned until they are prompted by the Holy Spirit to repent their sins and trust Christ as their Savior and Lord. (Psalm 51:5, Roman 3:23, Jeremiah 17:9, Romans 6:23)

WE BELIEVE...

In the universal Church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and those who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and baptized are members. (Ephesians 1:18-23, Ephesians 5:2, 23-27)

WE BELIEVE...

That Christ has commissioned every member of His church to the task of making disciples to the full development and exercise of their gifts. (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8)

WE BELIEVE...

In the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth to establish His kingdom. (2 Peter 3:13, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, Revelation 21:2, 3; 2:3–5)

WE BELIEVE...

We believe in the resurrection of all people: believers to that eternal state known as heaven, but those who have continued to refuse Christ's grace to endless separation from God. (Revelation 20:7-21:8)
