THE RIVER FAMILY CHRISTIAN CENTER

WE BELIEVE IN

THE TRINITY

There is one God, the Creator of man and all things, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of a Virgin Mary.

THE BIBLE

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God’s Holy Spirit, are inerrant in the original writings, are the Word of God, and the final authority in all matters of life and death.

 

MANKIND

Man was created in the image of God;he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; that Adam’s sin is imputed to the whole race of mankind; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature when they reach the age of accountability.

THE SACRIFICE OF CHRIST

We Believe In the bodily crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ, in His ascension into heaven, and that He is the Head of the Church, Lord of the individual believer, High Priest over the house of God, and today is at the Right Hand of God as Savior, Intercessor, and Advocate.

ATONEMENT

Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe on and accept Him as Savior are freely justified before God by the blood of Jesus Christ, are spiritually regenerated, and are born again.

 

THE BLOOD

Justification, regeneration, and the new birth are possible only by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

SONSHIP

All who, by faith and confession, receive Jesus Christ as their Savior are born again, are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, are new creatures in Christ, are baptized into the body of Christ, and become the children of God.

FATHERHOOD

God is the Heavenly Father of those who trust in His Son, Jesus Christ, as Savior and that only those saved through faith in Christ receive eternal life in God’s Kingdom.

BAPTISM

Water baptism is done by immersion, and by all who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost, in Jesus’ name.

HOLINESS

 Holiness is to be God’s standard of living for His people and that sanctification is a continuing process, through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ, the Word, and the power of the Holy Ghost.

 

BAPTISM OF THE SPIRIT

 Baptism of the Holy Ghost, subsequent to the new birth, and in exercising the Spiritual gifts, as the Holy Spirit gives utterance, to the edifying and empowering of the believer and the body of Christ.

 

HEALING

Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement of Jesus Christ.

COMMUNION

We believe in the partaking of the Lord’s Supper (Communion) by the saints of God (those who are born again).

ETERNAL LIFE

Eternal life in the Kingdom of God are for those who are saved, in glorified bodies. We also believe in the eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire, for those who choose to remain unsaved.

GENDER

That God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female.  These two, distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.  (Genesis 1:26-27).   Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.

MARRIAGE

That the term “marriage” has only one meaning:  the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2:18-25).

INTIMACY

That God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Corinthians 6:18, 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4).
