ACBC: What We Believe

 

The Bible is:

1. The Word of God - When the Bible speaks, God speaks. 

2. Personal - It is both from God and for us.

3. Authoritative - To obey the Bible is to obey God himself. 

4. Trustworthy - Every single word of the Bible can be fully trusted as good and true. 

5. Essential - It carries both daily relevance and eternal impact for our lives. 

 

God is:

1. Monotheistic - He is the one and only God. There is none other

2. Perfection - God is fully worthy of all possible love, worship and obedience. 

3. Sovereign & Good - God is involved in his creation. 

4. Just Judge & Loving Savior - God is a Redeemer of his people. 

5. A Trinity - Eternally exists in 3 persons: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

People are:

1. Uniquely Created - God created all people, men and women, in his own image.

2. Valuable - All possess priceless worth regardless of race, gender or social status. 

3. Lost - Though God’s precious creation, people rejected God in attitude and action

4. Sinful - Without exception all people are now sinful by birth and choice.

5. Broken -  Sin resulted in lives daily damaged and eternally separated from God. 

 

The Gospel is: 

1. Necessary - Apart from God’s mercy, all deserve just punishment for our rebellion.

2. Good News - Jesus lived a sinless life but died a sinner’s death in our place.

3. Non-Negotiable - Through Jesus alone are we saved. 

4. Beautiful - God’s wrath was satisfied. Our sins are forgiven.

5. Transforming - Sinners are restored to worship, love and obey their Creator.
