Who We Are
To see a greater worship of Jesus
That our community and our world
would know and experience
the love of Christ.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Our Core Beliefs (listed below) are what we hold to be the key doctrines that ground the Christian faith as they are found in the Scriptures. We expect all members of Aletheia to be in full agreement with these Core Beliefs.
Our full STATEMENT OF FAITH can be viewed here. There are a number of secondary beliefs contained in each of these sections that heavily influence and direct the culture and direction of our church. Complete agreement is not required for the sake of membership, but it should be known that we will preach, teach, lead, and counsel in accordance with these convictions.
We believe in one God eternally existing as one essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God, yet there is one God. (Deut. 6:4, Gen. 1:1-2, John 1:1, 1:14, Acts 5:3-4, Matt. 28:18-20)
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the Word of God and the ultimate doctrinal authority on all matters. (2 Tim. 3:14-17, 2 Pet. 1:19-21, Heb. 4:12, Isa. 40:6-8)
god is creator
We believe that God created the world from nothing and rules, reigns, sustains, and governs all things at all times in all places. (Gen. 1:1, Deut. 10:14, Ps. 24:1, Ps. 89:11, Col. 1:17, Heb. 1:3)
We believe that God has created human beings, male and female, in his image, and that all humans possess intrinsic worth, value, and dignity (Gen. 1:26-30, Gen. 9:6, Jas. 3:9)
We believe that Sin has fractured all things, leaving the world in desperate need for salvation and redemption. (Gen. 3, Rom. 3:9-20, 23, 5:12-14, Eph. 2:1-3)
Salvation by Grace alone, faith alone, Christ alone
We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. (Gal. 2:20, 1 Pet. 2:24-25, Eph. 2:4-9, 1 Cor. 15:1-6, 2 Cor. 5:14-21)
We believe that the Church is comprised of those who have been born-again by God’s grace into the body of Christ, sent into the world to shine forth the glory of God and to declare and display the good news of the gospel. (1 Cor. 12:12-31, Matt. 28:18-20, 1 Peter 2:9-12, Acts 20:28, Eph. 2:11-22)
We believe that Jesus Christ is returning to the world to judge the living and the dead. (Acts 17:30-31, 2 Tim. 4:1, Rev. 20-21)
