Our Beliefs

 

THE BIBLE

The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is God's word to all. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures are inspired by God and are infallible and inerrant in the original manuscripts. They are the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice, and there are no other writings similarly inspired by God.  (Isaiah 40:8; II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16-17).

 

THE TRINITY

We believe that God is eternally existent, co-equal in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:28; Matthew 28:18; Luke 3:22; John 1:1).

 

JESUS CHRIST

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, in His virgin birth and sinless life; that He is 100% God and 100% man; that He died as a redeeming substitute for our sins, was buried and bodily resurrected, and ascended to the right hand of the Father; and, in His personal return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14, 53:5; Matthew 1:23; John 1:14; Acts 2:29-36; Galatians 3:13; Hebrews 4:15; Philippians 2:6-11; I Thessalonians 4:16; I Timothy 2:5).

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity, whose present ministry is convicting us of our sins; and, who indwells the Christian; comforting, teaching and empowering the Christian to lead a godly life. (Ezekiel 36:27; Matthew 3:11; John 14: 16-17, 16:8; Acts 1:8).

 

MAN

We believe that man was created in the image of God to be in fellowship with God and to reconcile the earth to God. We believe man was tempted by Satan, fell under the influence of sin, became disobedient to God by choice and was helpless to restore himself, thus forsaking his divine mission in life. Man is the object of God's love in Jesus Christ, who came so that man could resume his original divine mission in life. (Genesis 1:26-28; John 3:15-17; Romans 3:23, 5:12-21; I Corinthians 3:5-10, 16:8; Acts 1:8).

 

SALVATION

Salvation is a gift from God to all people. Men and women can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can a person be saved from sin's penalty. (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10, 13).

 

ETERNITY

People are created to exist forever. Every person will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is heaven. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence. (Matthew 6:20-21; Revelation 20:11-15, 21:8).

 

SATAN

We believe that Satan rebelled against God; became the author of sin; is at war with God for control of the earth; is the enemy of God and man and that he and his followers shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. (Job 1:6; Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 22:31; Ephesians 6:11-12; Revelation 20:10).

Our Core Values

At Revolution Community Church we hold tightly to what matters most and loosely to what doesn’t.  These core values guide where we focus our time and energy as an organization.  We are radically committed to these core values! Our staff live them out personally and enthusiastically encourage others to do so as well.

 

AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY​  [Hebrews 10:24-25, Romans 12:4-5, 1 Peter 3:8, Proverbs 27:17]

You can’t follow Jesus in isolation.  In a world plagued by individualism and loneliness, the church is an example of wholeness.  We rest in the comfort and grow through the challenge of each other.

 

AUDAC

We are a gathering of people who are continually in process.  It’s not about stopping or starting; it’s about continually and endlessly stepping.  No one is finished growing into all that God has created and called them to be.
