WHAT WE BELIEVE
WHAT WE BELIEVE
OUR BELIEFS ARE SIMPLE…
We believe in the Bible. We believe in Jesus Christ. We believe in one church.
THE BIBLE IS TRUTH
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God—infallible and authoritative. The Church of Christ at Schaffer Road holds no man-made creed. We lean upon the Bible as our roadmap in righteous living and the authority for all we do.
Every church may not exactly look and feel the same; however, regardless of the time and place, our beliefs as Christians are rooted in the eternal truths of the scriptures. These beliefs are not ideas made up of our choosing or desires; they are God’s plan for us as written in the Bible.
JESUS CHRIST IS OUR SAVIOUR
We believe that Jesus is the most important person to ever live. Prophecy fulfilled, Jesus is the son of God—perfect and sinless. He traveled thousands of miles on foot seeking the lost and creating believers. Jesus confirmed the Kingdom of God to be at hand as he performed miracles, exercising powers of divinity that supersede the laws of nature causing thousands to draw to Him. Perhaps a miracle in and of itself, Jesus touched many, many more in the power of His humanity. He connected with others wielding the human strength of humility, compassion, service, and faithfulness.
Jesus willingly submitted Himself to be mocked, tortured and killed to save us by the power of His blood and sacrifice. And for His sacrifice, we are eternally grateful.
THERE IS ONLY ONE CHURCH
We believe in the church of the Bible—the church of Christ. We are neither Catholic nor Protestant. We recognize no denominations because Christ built one church and it bears his name only.
Just like the congregations of the churches of Christ in Jerusalem, Ephesus, Corinth, and Philippi, our congregation is autonomous, united in Christian belief and practice as prescribed by the Bible. Jesus is the head of the church and we are the body—instruments of His will.
Each member has submitted to the authority of the scriptures and God’s plan for salvation. And as Christians, we are individually tasked with the responsibility to learn, understand and implement God’s will. We worship Him and we share His goodness with others one act at a time.
