What We Believe
We Worship God in the Spirit.
We Rejoice in Jesus Christ.
We Place No Confidence in the flesh.
We believe God is the loving Creator of all things, both seen and unseen. God is eternal and completely good, knowing all things, having all power and majesty. God exists as three distinct personalities with distinct roles, yet one God: Father, Son, and Spirit. God passionately desires relationship with us and continually invites us into a relationship of faith, friendship, learning, and service.
About Jesus Christ
We believe God expressed himself in human form through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified for the sins of us all, was buried and rose again from the dead. He has ascended to heaven and will return as our victorious Lord.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit, sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ, teaches, comforts and empowers us, giving each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character and love among Christians.
About the Church
We believe the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the Church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ as their only salvation. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by loving Him and making Him known by loving all of his creation.
We Believe in Unity Among Christians
Christ Community of Owensboro recognizes diversity among Christians in nonessential areas. We do not press for uniformity in these areas, but rather encourage people to search the Scriptures, seeking balance, mutual understanding, humility and love. Additionally, we seek to respect one another’s differences without a quarrelsome, arrogant or divisive spirit, and to return continually to the great commandment: to love God and one another.
Christ Community of Owensboro also believes that no person or group of persons will ever fully capture the complete revelation of God. Therefore, those who follow the Lord must follow Him with humility and an attitude of expectant discovery. We must also seek to find reasons to include people, not exclude them. And when other equally sincere and Bible-believing followers disagree with our positions, we follow this simple, but powerful motto:
IN ESSENTIALS, UNITY
IN OPINIONS, LIBERTY
AND IN ALL THINGS, LOVE
