FIREPOINT CHURCH STATEMENT OF FAITH

At Firepoint Church we believe that there are essential beliefs where we have unity and non-essential beliefs where we have liberty. The following are our core beliefs.
 
THE BIBLE
We believe the Bible is the authoritative Word of God revealing his love for us and the pathway back to a full relationship with him. It is the authoritative, infallible and inerrant word of God use for reproving, correcting and instructing in the way of life and is unchangeable in nature.
 

ONE GOD
We believe that the God of the Bible is the one and only true God who created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. He is the source of all life and is eternally revealed as three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
 
JESUS CHRIST
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is fully man and fully God. That he was born by a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed many miracles, died for us on the cross, bodily resurrected, is now seated in heaven with the Father and will soon return to earth. He lived the life we were meant to live, he died the death we deserved to die and that through his resurrection he provided the way to eternal life that can only be found through him.
 
HOLY SPIRIT
We Believe that Holy Spirit lives in each believer in Jesus Christ and assures us of our relationship with God, leads us into all truth, comforts us through every trial, guides us in obedience to God’s will, gives each believer spiritual gifts that help comfort and transform others into the image of Jesus Christ, while at the same time convicting the world of sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming Judgment.
 
FORGIVEN
We believe the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed for us through his suffering and death on the cross that paid the full price for our redemption. Thereby we are free from the penalty of sin and through accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior become the children of God.
 

SALVATION
We believe people are saved by grace through faith and not by their own ability to live by a set of rules. Salvation is obtained by admitting our sinfulness and repenting of it, then humbly accepting the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. In this way none of us can boast and say that we have attained salvation by our own achievement, but all are completely reliant on God’s grace for eternal life.
 

MARRIAGE
We believe in marriage as it is defined in the Bible as a covenant between one man and one woman.
 

CHURCH
We believe in the universal church of believers that consists of local churches throughout the world that hold the essential beliefs of Christianity. We believe that it is impossible to reach your full God potential outside of the fellowship of believers found in the local church. 
 

BAPTISMS AND COMMUNION
We practice both water baptism and communion as taught by the Bible. Water baptisms are a public act used to identify our lives with Christ; first with his death and burial and then through his resurrection to eternal life. Communion is a time of deep reflection and recommitment to Jesus Christ and to his Church. Where believers break bread and drink the juice of grapes in remembrance of Jesus Christ and what he did for us.
 

JUDGMENT
We believe Jesus will return bodily to the earth at the end of the age and judge every person according to the decisions they have made during their lives. Some to everlasting life and some to eternal separation from God.
 

EQUALITY 
We believe that very person that receives Jesus Christ as their Lord is a child of God and is equal in value regardless of race, gender, culture or class.
