Statement of Faith – Resurrection Life Church

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible is inspired and empowered by God, infallible and authoritative.
We believe in one eternal God who exists as three separate persons; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We embrace and support compassionate Christianity, which emphasizes relationship over religion.

We believe the true Church is composed of all born-again believers in Christ, regardless of denominational affiliation.

We believe that Satan is totally and absolutely defeated through the victory of the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross.

We believe in the virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutional death on the cross, the bodily resurrection, and the ascension of Jesus Christ.

We believe that if you “know the truth, the truth will set you free.”

We believe salvation is a gift of Grace — to be received, not achieved. “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

We live by one principle, “to love God with all our heart and mind and soul and strength, and our neighbours as ourselves.” This is possible only through the in-dwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

We believe the Holy Spirit is continuing the work He started at Pentecost empowering believers to live a godly life and continue in all the works of Jesus..

We believe salvation begins at conversion, which means joyfully living a life of heaven on earth until the fulfilment of the second resurrection!
