WE BELIEVE THAT:

THE SCRIPTURES

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It has God for its author, truth without any mixture of error, and is the authoritative rule of faith and conduct.


TRIUNE GOD

God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are three distinct persons, eternally co-existent, but without division of nature or being.

GOD:

There is one living and true God. He is the creator, sustainer, and ruler of the universe. He reveals Himself to us as God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are three distinct persons, eternally co-existent, but without division of nature or being. We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. 

CHRIST:

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His sacrificial death on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, and His ascension to the right hand of God.

SPIRIT FILLED LIFE:

The Holy Spirit lives within the heart of every believer. His purpose is to baptize, seal, empower, convict, comfort, guide, and teach the believers, so that they may become Christ-like, displaying the fruits of the Spirit, and exercising the gifts of the Spirit.


SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE

All human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.

MAN

Man was created by the direct act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was innocent of sin and given freedom of choice. Man chose to sin against God, thereby bringing not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.

MARRIAGE AND SEXUALLITY

God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. Because God has ordained marriage and defined it as a covenant relationship between a biological man and woman, and Himself, Trinity Bible Church will only recognize marriage between a biological man and a biological woman. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. The term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as described in scripture. (Gen. 2:18-25). The Pastors and staff of Trinity Bible Church shall only participate in weddings and solemnize marriages between one man and one woman.

We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and woman who are married to each other, God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. Any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God.

SALVATION

Salvation is available to all who repent of their sin and place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Christ alone provided eternal redemption by His sacrificial death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. Regeneration is a process through which believers become a new creation by the Holy Spirit.

THE CHURCH

A New Testament Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local fellowship of believers who are united by their mutual faith in Jesus Christ and His teachings. This fellowship observes the two ordinances of Christ, the Lord’s Supper and Baptism, as well as allows for the exercising of all spiritual gifts.

BAPTISM

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is a public act of obedience symbolizing the believer's death to sin and newness of life in Jesus Christ.

LORD'S SUPPER

The Lord's Supper is a somber and symbolic act of obedience whereby Christians, through partaking of the bread and wine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

SECOND COMING

According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth at the appointed time. The dead will be raised, and Christ will judge all in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected bodies will receive their reward and will live forever with the Lord.
