FocusChrist Core Beliefs


Bible

We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God.

  • That the 66 books of the Old and New Testament were inspired by the Spirit of God as originally written
  • That the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and conducts · 2 Timothy 3:16


Jesus Christ

We believe in the absolute and essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ

  • In His eternal existence, with the Father in pre-incarnate glory
  • In His work of creation, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection
  • In His triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry, and personal return

The work of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and in the personality of the Holy Spirit

  • Who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment
  • Who regenerates, indwells, seals, sanctifies, illuminates, and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ
  • Who baptizes believers at conversion into the Body of Christ and bestows upon them His gifts sovereignly as He wills and fills those yielded to Him

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by the sovereign grace of God

  • That by the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a propitiatory death
  • That justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • That those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and ultimately perfected in the image of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • That salvation is obtained by those who abide in Christ, live according to His teachings, and carry the testimony of Jesus Christ as His witnesses to the end of their earthly lives.
