What we believe at Good Shepherd Church

Our Beliefs

the Bible

The Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; Deuteronomy 4:2; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

THE TRINITY

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ was both fully human and fully divine. He is the second person of the Trinity, God the Son.


The Scriptures declare:

His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:27-35)

His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22)

His miracles (Acts 2:22, 10:38)

His substitutionary work on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4)

His exaltation to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19; Acts 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3)

His bodily, personal return for His Church (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Revelation 20:1-15)


THE SEPARATION

We believe that man was created good and upright. However, man sinned and thereby that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. (Genesis 1:26, 2:17; Romans 3:23, 6:23).

THE RECONCILIATION

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.

THE CHURCH

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.
