ABOUT THE GATE

Our Beliefs

This ministry affirms the content of the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds and the Lausanne Covenant statement of faith.

  • God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are distinct persons within the Godhead with distinct roles -and yet one triune God who is creator of the universe.
  • Jesus Christ is the Messiah, Savior and Son of God, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was raised from the grave, and will return as our victorious Lord.
  • Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and cannot be earned, but is a gift of God.
  • Faith in Jesus requires repentance, confession of that faith before witnesses, and obedience to his word.
  • Baptism by immersion demonstrates our faith and obedience, and depicts our union with Jesus Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection.
  • Everyone who accepts Jesus Christ has the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as a comforter, guide, and advocate.
  • The Bible is the divinely-inspired word of God in its entirety and that it does not contradict itself.
  • The Bible is our guide.
  • The church, as the body of Christ, is the extension of Jesus Christ's character, attitude, behavior, and mission in our world today.
  • The expression of the Holy Spirit’s charismatic gifts is present and active today.
  • God gives ministries to both men and women through the Holy Spirit for the benefit of the body of Christ.
  • Humility in prayer is the foundation for all we do and the regular celebration of communion together is beneficial for all Christians.
