Core Beliefs

Why do we do what we do?

A personʼs beliefs directly affect what he or she chooses to do.

What does Real Life Church believe?
*About God
We believe in one God—Creator and Ruler of the universe.  God eternally exists in 3 persons— Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
*About Jesus
We believe Jesus is the Son of God.  He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life, and offered Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of all mankind.
*About the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is active in our world today, making people aware of their need for Jesus.  In the believer, the Holy Spirit provides power for living and guidance for spiritual understanding.
*About Mankind
We believe that all mankind was created in the very image of God for the purpose of fellowship with Him.  Due to sinful disobedience, the relationship is broken and cannot be mended by man alone.
*About the Bible
We believe the Bible is Godʼs Word to all of humanity.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Because it was inspired by God, it is without error.  It is our source for authority and beliefs.
*About Salvation
We believe that salvation is a gift from God.  Man could never bridge the gap of sin separating us from the Father on our own.  The blood of Jesus, shed on the cross, is the sole basis for forgiveness of sins.  Therefore, salvation occurs when we truly believe that Jesus did indeed die for our sins, and resurrect again, and His sacrifice is the only sufficient payment for our sins.
*About the Christian
We believe that every Christian should offer himself or herself as a living sacrifice—dying to self daily and living for Christ eternally.
*About the Church
We believe that the church is the Body of Christ and Jesus is the head.  The Body is composed of those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ.  The purpose of the church is to love God, bringing Him glory, and to love people, pointing them to Jesus.
