The following are the core beliefs of Faith Life Family Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the living, infallible, and everlasting rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason
There is one God who is three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and function as one entity. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible. He is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. He is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with The Father and The Holy Spirit. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life and died on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all people; He arose from the dead and is presently seated at the right hand of the Father,
Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.
When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross Jesus Christ became sin providing salvation for all mankind; being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. For by grace we are saved through faith. Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is promised to all believers. It is a gift subsequent to salvation that empowering believers for service and to be witnesses for Jesus Christ. The bible evidence of receiving this gift is the physical sign of speaking in other tongues (unknown languages) as the Holy Spirit gives the utterance.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sanctification, or "separation", is a progressive work of grace that begins at salvation and is completed at Christ's return.
Water Baptism and Communion
Water baptism and Holy Communion are the two primary ordinances of the Church. With water baptism, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. With Holy Communion we remember Jesus' death and suffering for our salvation.
Throughout the Bible, God promises total prosperity; spiritual, mental, physical, financial, and social.
The blessed hope of believers is that the resurrection of those that have died in Christ, together with those who are alive and remain in fellowship with God is imminent.
The Lake of Fire
Those who have not accepted the redeeming work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from God in the lake of fire, which is the second death.
Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
