RCCA Statement of Faith

We Believe… 

● that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are inspired by 

● God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme 

● and final authority in faith and life 

● in one God, the Creator, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit 

● that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and that He was and remains true God and true man 

● that God created Adam and Eve in the divine image; that they sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that, as a result of Adam’s sin, all human beings are now born with a sinful nature and stand guilty before God 

● that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood 

● in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate 

● in the blessed hope of the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ 

● that all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God 

● that the Holy Spirit indwells and gives spiritual life to all believers, enables them to understand biblical truth, empowers them for godly living, and 

● equips them for service and witness 

● in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
