what we believe

 

CenterPoint Community Church - Core Beliefs

We believe the church’s role is to glorify God and serve those in need.  As the foundation of our church, we believe . . .

God is the one true God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  He created all mankind to have a relationship with Him.  He is the Beginning and the End of all things.

Jesus Christ is the only Son of God and the second Person in the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).  He was born of a virgin and lived life on earth without sin – He is perfect in every way.  He voluntarily died for our sins, as a substitute for us.  He was raised up from the dead to return to God the Father and acts as our mediator with God. Jesus is the only way to eternal life. He will return to earth to fulfill God’s ultimate plan. 

The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).  The Holy Spirit draws us to a relationship with Jesus Christ.  He works in and through believers to grow their relationship in Jesus Christ and to help believers serve all mankind for the glory of God.

The Bible is the complete Word of God, completely true, inspired by God and without error.  The sixty-six books in the Bible provide proof of God’s existence and provide mankind with insight into God’s character and His instructions for how to live here on earth.  The Bible is the final authority for all we believe, say and do.  2 Timothy 3:16

Salvation comes only by grace, as an unearned gift from God.  This gift must be received by a change of heart from within and by accepting, through faith and trust, that Jesus Christ is your personal Savior.  Jesus Christ died for our sins so we could be forgiven and receive eternal life. He is the only way for anyone to be saved.

Eternal Life is real.  Heaven and hell are real places existing in eternity.  All of humankind will exist in eternity either with God in Heaven for those forgiven through Christ or completely separated from God in hell.

The Lord’s Supper or communion is a holy and sacred event, celebrating the last meal that Jesus shared with the disciples.  We believe that all persons partaking in the Lord’s Supper should come to this sacred meal with a pure heart, free from any unconfessed sin.
 
Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change, made by an individual that has accepted Jesus Christ into their heart and who will freely and publicly profess their belief in Jesus, the risen Savior.  Baptism is the sacrament that joins the believer with the entire family of God (His Church).
