Grace Chapel’s Statement of Faith

A New Year is the perfect time to re-affirm what I believe:
I believe that the Bible is the final authority in all matters pertaining to Christian faith and practice.
I believe there is only one living and true God – perfect, infinite, and eternal.

I believe that human beings were created by God but we have alienated ourselves from him and we are in need of reconciliation.
I believe that God became man in the person of Jesus Christ and that Jesus Christ is both completely divine and completely human.
I believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and that he empowers us for life and service.
I believe that through the gift of Jesus’ death on the cross our rebellion can be forgiven, and through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ we can be reconciled to God.
I believe that the Church is universal and that it is manifested locally through companies of Christ’s followers meeting together as “the Bride of Christ”.
I believe that both baptism and the Lord’s Supper are visible signs of the realities of salvation. We are commanded to observe them, but we do not depend on them for salvation.
I believe that Christ will return at God’s appointed time.
(These are Grace Chapel’s Statement of Faith, -along with the Apostles’ Creed.)
