Statement Of Faith: WHAT WE BELIEVE

What We Believe
Connect Christian Church is a community united in a common love for Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We come from all walks of life and religious backgrounds. While each of us has a unique faith story, we are committed to the unity of all believers. Because we believe we are Christians only and not the only Christians, we recognize and value the faith experiences of all who love, honor and serve Jesus. If you are new to Connect, we do not expect you to believe everything from the first day you are here. We understand that spiritual growth is a process and our prayer is that you would grow alongside us as we seek to connect people to Christ and each other.

The Bible
We believe the Bible to be inspired by God, written down by men guided by the Holy Spirit. God’s Word lights our path and guards, penetrates, purifies and transforms our hearts. The Bible is reliable, flawless and our final authority for what is believed, taught and practiced by Connect. There are no other writings inspired by God. (2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe that there is one true and living God, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each possessing all the attributes of deity and deserving of our worship and obedience. God created the universe and all things out of nothing, manifesting His power, wisdom and goodness. God continues to work throughout history by sustaining His creation and fulfilling His redemptive plan. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19)

The second person of the Trinity, Jesus, is eternally equal with God. Willingly giving up the glory of heaven, Jesus came to earth to pay the debt for man’s soul. He became a man through a miraculous conception and a virgin birth. He lived a perfect life, committed no sin, paid for our sins by dying on the cross as our substitute. Jesus rose from the dead after three days and appeared to many people. Jesus will return at God’s appointed time to
