Our Beliefs

The beliefs of The Faith Place

See how we view God, Jesus, the Bible, man, and many significant aspects of our faith. Firmly rooted in Scripture, the beliefs of The Faith Place direct our decisions as a church.

We believe and accept the entire Bible as the infallible and inspired Word of God.
(II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16-17; Romans 1:16; Revelation 22:18-19)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is God. He assumed a human body through a virgin called Mary to be both divine and human.
(John 1:1-14; I Timothy 3:16)
Regeneration. We believe that regeneration is received only through faith in Jesus Christ, who was raised from the dead.
(Romans 10:9-11; Ephesians 2:8)

We believe in baptism by immersion in water in the name of Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38, Acts 4:12, Acts 8:16, Acts 19:1-5, II Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 4:5, Colossians 3:17)

We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
(Mark 16:17, Luke 24:49, John 3:5 Acts 1:5-8, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 8:17, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 11:15- 16, Acts 19:6,Jude 20)
