Statement of Faith

We Believe...

Every passage of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments is inspired of God. Therefore the Bible is the authoritative guide for what to believe and how to live. These Scriptures teach that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons -Father, Son and Holy Spirit - each possessing all the attributes of Deity.

The Scriptures reveal a Sovereign God who created the world out of nothing for His divine purpose. God created the first human beings in His image to have fellowship with Him, thereby conferring value and dignity on all human beings. But the first humans sinned and broke their relationship with God by disobeying Him and going their own way. As a result, we all continue to sin by disobeying God and going our own way.

Proper relationship with God can be restored only by God's saving grace - not human effort. This grace must be received personally through repentance and faith.

Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, is fully God. He was born of a virgin and was fully man, but without sin. Jesus lived a sinless life on earth to become the perfect sacrifice for sin. He died on the cross as our substitute and rose bodily from the dead. In this way he accomplished salvation for all who receive God's grace by trusting in Him alone - the only mediator between God the Father and us.

The Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, draws sinners to Christ, empowering and equipping believers for personal growth in God's service. As a local expression of the worldwide Church, Community Bible Church exists to worship God, to raise up devoted followers of Christ, to express God's love in relationships of caring service, and to bring God's salvation message to the world.

Jesus Christ will return to earth to bring history to its perfect fulfillment. Everyone will experience bodily resurrection and the judgment. Those who refuse God's forgiveness will experience eternal separation from Him and those forgiven through Christ will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.
