Vision & Beliefs
The Sanctuary is founded upon the belief that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God.
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God and is fundamental to understanding who God is. The Bible was inspired by God but penned by numerous men who were led by the Holy Spirit. The Greek word for “inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:15) literally means “God breathed”. Through archaeology, history, prophecy and science, the Word of God is proven to be infallible.
(Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Proverbs 30:6; Matthew 5:18; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:10; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:18-19)
We believe that all men and women are born with a sinful nature in need of a savior. Salvation is a free gift that cannot be earned but is given by grace through active faith. We live out our faith by repentance, baptism in Jesus Name, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
(Romans 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:8; James 2:14-18, 26; Acts 2:38, Acts 2:4, John 3:5)
We believe that God is love. Because of His love, we are empowered to love others as He first loved us. We are commissioned to serve others, share the Gospel, and be Christ-like. We are constantly striving to activate the Fruits of the Spirit which are evidence of a life fully committed to Christ.
(John 3:16; Ephesians 5:2; Galatians 5:13-14; Matthew 28:19, Ephesians 5:1-2; Galatians 5:22-23)
