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).
