Our Beliefs
GCSC Doctrinal Statement

 

 

1.     We believe and teach that the Bible is God’s inspired word, inerrant and complete, holding the message of Salvation (2 Timothy 3:14-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).

 

2.     We believe God created the heavens and the earth in six literal days (Genesis 1; Exodus 20:11).

 

3.     We believe sin has brought the consequence of physical death and spiritual separation from God to all mankind (Genesis 3:19; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12-17; Isaiah 59:2; Ephesians 4:18; Colossians 1:21).

 

4.     We believe God loves mankind and has instituted a plan to reconcile man with Himself and is revealed in the Bible (John 3:16).

 

5.     We believe God sent His Son, Jesus, born of a virgin, to be the Christ who lived a sinless life, died as a sacrificed for the sin of mankind upon the Roman cross, was buried, three days later was raised to life, is now in heaven reigning as King, and will return at God’s command to raise those who have been reconciled to God through Him to eternal life (John 3:16; Luke 1:26-37; 1 Peter 2:22; 1 John 2:2; John 19:16-18; Mark 15:46-47; Mark 8:31; Revelation 17:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

 

6.     We believe the invitation of God to have salvation, to be reconciled with Him, is revealed in the Gospel concerning His Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16-17; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8).

 

7.     We believe God judges a person right with Him as they accept and obey the Gospel message about His Son (Romans 3:22-24).

 

8.     We believe each person must place their faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior of their lives (Romans 3:25-26).

 

9.     We believe each person must believe the Gospel message about Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-8).

 

10. We believe each person must repent from their sinful lifestyle and turn to Jesus as Lord of their lives (Acts 3:19).

 

 

11. We believe each person must confess Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God in word and lifestyle (Matthew 16:16; Romans 10:9).

 

12. We believe each person must be immersed, baptized, for the forgiveness of sins and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16; Mark 16:15-16).

 

13. We believe each person must live their life in reverence to God, and in obedience to the commands of the New Testament (Acts 14:22; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10; Hebrews 10:28-29).
