CenterPointe is a congregation within
Grace Communion International (GCI).
GCI is a communion of members, congregations and ministries located in
more than 100 countries and territories. Our mission is to live and share the
gospel of Jesus Christ and to help members grow spiritually (Matthew 28:19-20).
Christians are exhorted to “grow in the grace and
knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). The Spirit of
God leads the church into all truth (John 16:13). Accordingly, this Statement
of Beliefs is not a closed creed. Grace Communion International constantly
renews its commitment to truth and deeper understanding and seeks to respond
to God's guidance in its beliefs and practices.
OF OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH
- There is one
God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- God the Father made all things through the
Son, sent the Son for our salvation, and gives us the Holy Spirit.
- The Son of God, Jesus Christ, our Lord and
Savior, was born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully human, and is
the perfect revelation of the Father and the perfect representative of
humanity. He suffered and died on the cross for all human sin, was
raised bodily on the third day, and ascended to heaven. Standing in for
all humanity before the Father, Jesus Christ provides the perfect human
response to God. Since he died for all, all died in him, and all will be
made alive in him.
- The Holy Spirit brings sinners to
repentance and faith, assures believers of their forgiveness and
acceptance as God’s dearly loved children, and works in them to conform
them to the image of Jesus Christ.
- The Bible is the inspired and infallible
Word of God that testifies to Jesus Christ. The Bible is fully
authoritative for all matters of faith and salvation.
- Salvation comes only by God’s grace and
not by works, and it is experienced through faith in Jesus Christ.
Christians respond to the joy of salvation when they gather in regular
fellowship and live godly lives in Jesus Christ.
- We look forward to the resurrection of the
dead and the life of the age to come.
