essential beliefs

The Bible – We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, sufficient and authoritative Word of God.

God – We believe there is one God, who exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ – We believe in the full deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, including His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and bodily return in power and glory.

Salvation – We believe all men are sinful, separated from God, and unable to save themselves. Salvation is only through grace alone, by faith alone, in Christ alone.

The Holy Spirit – We believe in the full deity of the Holy Spirit, who indwells every believer, enabling obedience and spiritual growth, and He preserves each one unto eternity.

The Church – We believe that the universal church is comprised of all the redeemed.  We believe commitment to the local church is necessary for spiritual health.

I am in full agreement with these Essential Beliefs.    ________ Please initial.

 

 

core distinctives

 

Expository Preaching – We teach the primacy of the preaching of God’s Word in the church.  The inerrancy, authority and sufficiency of Scripture demand the centrality of this life-changing ministry.

Divine Sovereignty – We teach that God possesses and exercises supreme authority over all the affairs of this world. He has chosen those whom He will save before the foundation of the world and is calling these elect ones to Himself within time.

Elder Led – We teach the local church is to be shepherded by a plurality of godly men known as elders. These spiritually mature men are to be supported by the service of men known as deacons. 

 

Spiritual Gifts – We teach that many of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are in use today, but that the miraculous gifts were restricted to the apostolic age.

 


I understand these Core Distinctives of HeartSong  Church.  ________ Please initial.
