WHAT WE BELIEVE
 
 
Our beliefs are simple and rooted in the Bible. We believe that God wants everyone to understand the Bible and therefore we teach the Bible in simple ways. We try not to be dogmatic abut matters which other believers hold divergent views. We seek to build upon the beliefs we hold in common with other Christians, rather that try and define ourselves by our differences.
These statements of belief represent a consensus of what the leadership of our church believes the Bible teaches on key issues. This summary of beliefs is designed to help you become better acquainted with the preaching and teaching emphases you are likely to encounter at Marysville Christian Church.
We believe the Bible is inspired by God from cover to cover and consider its teachings as authoritative for all matters of life and Christian practice.
 
We believe there is only one God who is the Creator of all things, and that He is eternally existent in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and that each possesses the attributes of Deity.
 
We believe in Jesus Christ who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, that His death on the cross is the only means through which we can be made right with God, that He bodily rose from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God, and that He will return again to reign in power and glory.
 
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who lives in each follower of Christ and enables all to live God-honoring lives.
 
We believe mankind willfully sinned and as a result is lost and without hope apart from receiving Jesus Christ.
 
We believe that forgiveness of sins is available only by the grace of God through what Jesus did for us by dying for our sins on the cross, and that this free gift of forgiveness is available to each person who places their faith in Jesus Christ.
 
We believe that those placing their trust in Jesus Christ should turn from their old way of living, confess their belief in Jesus, and be baptized into Jesus Christ.
 
We believe that death seals the eternal destiny of each person. Those who are forgiven will spend eternity with God; those not forgiven will be eternally separated from God.
 
We believe in the spiritual unity of the Church on earth, consisting of all Christians everywhere
