What We Believe

First Christian Church is a non-denominational, evangelical, Protestant Church.

  • We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are inspired of God, and they are without error and are the supreme and final authority for faith and life. (II Timothy3:16-17, II Peter 1:19-21)
  • We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, Who is eternally existent as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19)
  • We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death to pay the penalty for our sins, His bodily resurrection, His exaltation at God’s right hand, and His personal, imminent, and pre-millennial return. (Matthew 1:20-23, II Corinthians 5:21, I Peter 1:3, Hebrews 1:3. I Thessalonians 4:13-17)
  • We believe that all have sinned and are therefore guilty before God and are under His condemnation. However, all who by faith receive Jesus Christ as Savior are born again of the Holy Spirit; therefore, they are children of God and eternally saved. The Holy Spirit dwells within every believer to counsel, guide, and enable the believer in life, testimony, and service. (Romans 3:23, Romans 8:1-39)
  • We believe that God answers the prayers of His people and meets their needs according to His purpose. (Psalms 34:15-17, Proverbs 15:29, John 9:1-31)
  • We believe that God, by His sovereign power through the Holy Spirit, bestows spiritual gifts to glorify Jesus and to do the ministry of redeeming the lost and edifying the body of believers. (I Corinthians 12:11, John 16:14, Acts 1:8, Ephesians 4:11 -12, Romans 12:3-8)
  • We believe the confirming sign gifts: speaking in tongues (intelligible languages), interpretation, healing, sign miracles were gifts practiced in the beginning days of the Church to confirm the gospel message and were not intended to be signs of salvation, nor continuing patterns of worship and ministry. (I Corinthians 14:22a, II Corinthians 12:12, Hebrews 2:3-4)
  • We believe no one possesses the gift of healing. We believe that God, according to His sovereign will, does answer prayers of faith and supernaturally heals believers. We also believe that the ultimate healing for believers is to be absent from the body and home with the Lord. (I John 5:14-15, II Corinthians 5:1,8, Philippians 1:21-23)
  • We believe in bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. And the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection, when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord. However, the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious punishment and torment until the second resurrection, when the soul and body are reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment and torment. (John 5:28-29, John 11:25-26, II Corinthians 5:6-8, Philippians 3:20-21, II Thessalonians 1:7-10, Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15)
  • We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord. (I Peter 1:13-19, Romans 12:1-2, II Timothy 3:15).
  • We believe that the local church, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, is solely made up of born-again persons who believe in two sacraments; the Lords’ Supper and water baptism. The Bible teaches that water baptism is by immersion for those who believe and confess Jesus as their Savior. It serves as a public testimony of ones salvation which is a sign of but not a
    requirement for salvation. Furthermore the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures and is free of any external authority or control. (Matthew 28:18-20,Acts2:41- 42, Acts 8:34-39, I Corinthians 11:23-27, Ephesians 1:22-23, Colossians 1:17- 18)
