Statement of Beliefs:
The following are the core beliefs of Impact Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
Belief about God
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each distinct person of the Trinity is fully God. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Belief about the Scripture (The Bible)
The entire Bible is the inspired Word of God written down by men under the direction of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the ultimate standard of truth, without error in its original form, and completely sufficient.
Belief about Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God (second person of the Trinity), who was born of a virgin by the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit. Christ was both fully man and fully God and was completely without sin. It is through Christ’s death on the cross that mankind has the opportunity to be saved from their sin.
Belief about the Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit is the third distinct person of the Trinity. The work of the Holy Spirit is to manifest the active presence of God in the world, especially in the church.
Belief about Mankind
God created mankind, male and female, for His own glory and in His image. Man became alienated from God by failing to conform to the moral law of God in action, attitude, and nature (sin). Because mankind’s nature is sinful, it is impossible for man to come back into right relationship with God on his/her own.
Belief about Salvation
The death of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person willingly repents of their sin and places their faith in Christ as Savior and Lord.
Belief about the Church
The church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members of the church are those who have been saved by faith in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God and make disciples of all nations.
