Our Core Beliefs

At LifeBridge Christian Church, we believe the Bible is the only adequate guide for the faith and practice of Christians. We call people to learn and believe the Scriptures. We have no other creed. The following statement of belief is not a condition of membership. It is simply a tool to quickly and conveniently communicate what our leadership believes the Scriptures teach on key spiritual issues. It is designed to help you become better acquainted with the preaching and teaching emphasis you are likely to encounter at LifeBridge.

The Scriptures(the bible)

The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God. They tell the story of God's work in history to restore a relationship with His lost  a children. In that story, God's holy and loving nature is revealed. That story becomes the foundation for our faith and the standard for our lives. 

Psalm 119:9-16

2 Timothy 3:16 & 17

the nature of god

God is the creator and sustainer of everything that exists. He is one God manifesting himself in three persons - The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These have the same nature, are co-equal and co-existant. 

Genesis 1 & 2

John 14:15-21

Colossians 1:15-20

The Nature of Humanity

We were created by God to be unique among all creation because we alone were created in His image. That has powerful implications for our lives. We have been given free will. Our lives are not determined by fate. Like God we can choose our actions. We can enjoy the benefits or suffer the consequences of those choices. We have been called God's children. We have each used our free will to choose things contrary to God's will. That is called sin. Sin has separated us from God and has defaced His image in our lives. As a result, we are like children, alienated and lost. God does not love us less because of our sin, but it stands as a barrier between us. It is a barrier we cannot overcome on our own. 

the nature of jesus

Jesus came to help us be reunited with the Father. Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. He is truly God and truly Man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He was sinless, yet He gave His life for the sins of the world by dying on the cross. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of God, and is our great High Priest and Advocate. He alone can restore the relationship of humankind to God. He is both Lord and Savior.

Isaiah 53

Matthew 1:18-25

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

Hebrews 1:1-4

Phil. 2:5-11

Col. 2:9

John 3:16

Acts 4:10-12

The nature of holy spirit

The Holy Spirit is fully God, the Third Person of the Trinity. He is the Spirit of God and Christ, filling, comforting, and guiding those who love and are obedient to Jesus Christ.

John 14:15-21

1 John 2:1-6

the nature of salvation

God sent Jesus Christ to save us from sin and restore our relationship with Himself. Jesus was sacrificed on the cross, died and was resurrected, paying the penalty for the sins of all who will trust in Him. Salvation comes only by placing confidence in Jesus Christ. He offers forgiveness for our sin, the power to live a new life free from sin, and the hope of eternal life with Him in heaven. Man can do nothing to earn his salvation. It is grace - a free gift of God through faith.

Romans 3:10-24

Ephesians 2:1-10

the nature of faith

Faith is confidence. Confidence in God requires a response to His promises of life and hope, which were revealed in His written word and demonstrated in His son, Jesus. Without confidence in Jesus Christ, it is impossible to please God.

James 2:17

Hebrews 11:6
