What We Believe

But these are writ­ten that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believ­ing you may have life in His name.
John 20:31

We believe the Scriptures
are God’s inspired Word.

Athey Creek Chris­t­ian Fel­low­ship is a body of believ­ers desir­ing to know the Lord in an ever-increas­ing mea­sure. We are a non-denom­i­na­tion­al fel­low­ship asso­ci­at­ing with all who are in the Body of Christ.

State­ment of Faith

We believe there is one God who eter­nal­ly exists in three per­sons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spir­it. We believe that Jesus Christ, the sec­ond per­son of the Holy Trin­i­ty, was born of a vir­gin, lived a sin­less life, died a sac­ri­fi­cial death for the sins of the world, rose bod­i­ly from the dead, ascend­ed into heav­en, and is com­ing again to judge the liv­ing and the dead and to estab­lish God’s king­dom of right­eous­ness and peace on the earth.

We believe the only true basis of Chris­t­ian fel­low­ship is God’s love. His love is greater than any dif­fer­ences we pos­sess. With­out it we have no right to claim that we are Chris­tians (1 Corinthi­ans 13).

We believe that sal­va­tion comes through Jesus alone. It is by His grace and work on the cross that we can go to heav­en, not by of our own works (Eph­esians 2:8 – 9).

We believe that mar­riage is an insti­tu­tion sanc­tioned by God, which joins one man and one woman in a sin­gle, exclu­sive union (Gen­e­sis 2:24, Hebrews 13:4).

We believe the marks of a matur­ing church are faith, hope, and love (Colos­sians 1:3 – 7).

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and inerrant Word of God. We place high empha­sis on the teach­ing of God’s Word, the Bible, so that our faith may grow (Romans 10:17, 2 Tim­o­thy 3:16).

We live in antic­i­pa­tion of the return of Jesus, for He is our blessed hope (Titus 2:13).

We desire the full­ness of the Spir­it in our lives, for the fruit of the Spir­it is love (Gala­tians 5:22).
