What We Believe

What We Believe


Authentic Church is a community of people passionate about loving God, loving people, and living an authentic life that reflects the heart of God to the world around us. To that end, the following is our core beliefs that build the framework for how we live, how we love, and how we lead here at Authentic Church.


The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God's Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26).


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. (Romans 8; Ephesians 1:13-14)


Redemption

We believe that every single person is important to God and that mankind was created good and upright. However, voluntary sin separated us from God and the only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 3:23; 5:12-21; 1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9).


Salvation

We believe that the only way to heaven is through an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. (John 3:16, 14:6; Romans 6:23; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Matthew 16:16)


Empowerment

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts including prophecy, speaking in tongues, signs, miracles and wonders for the equipping of the church to reach the world. (Ephesians 4:1-16; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 2:1-12;1 Corinthians 12:4-10; 1 Corinthians 14:4-5)


Transformation

We believe that God wants all of us to experience true freedom, healed and transformed, so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively. (Galatians 5:1; Matthew 15:30; 1 Corinthians 12:9-10)


The Church

We believe in the power and significance of the Church, unity in the body of believers and the necessity to meet regularly together in authentic relationship, prayer and the 'breaking of bread’. (Hebrews 10:24-25; Matthew 18:20; Acts 2:42; Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 4:11)


Eternity

We believe that when we die, we will either be separated from God by sin or united with Him eternally through faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. (John 3:16; John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:10,15)


Second Coming

We believe that Jesus is coming back again as He promised and will reign forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
