Our Beliefs

“The fundamental teachings of Christ Community Church of Philadelphia are reflected in the following doctrinal statements.”         

 
 We Believe…
 
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God. We understand the whole Bible is inspired in the sense that holy men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very Word of Scripture. (2 Tim. 3:16)
 
The complete inerrancy of the original manuscripts of the whole Bible and that they serve as the only rule of faith and practice. (2 Peter 1:21)
 
In the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of Men, conceived of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man. (Luke 1:26-35, John 1:18, Isaiah 7:14, 9:6)
 
In the necessity of water Baptism by immersion, in the name of the Eternal Godhead in order to fulfill the command of Christ. (Matthew 28:19; Actss 2:36-39; 19:1-6)
 
In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, as an experience subsequent to salvation,; with the scriptural evidence, namely, speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; Gal. 3:14-15)
 
In the operation of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1Cor. 12—14, as was manifested in the early church.
 
In the Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world, and perfecting holiness in the fear of God, as an expression of Christian faith. (Eph. 5:18; 2 Cor. 6:14; 7:1)
 
That marriage is exclusively the union of genetic male and one genetic female (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Therefore we believe that marriage is the only proper setting for sexual intimacy. The Bible requires purity before and faithfulness within and following marriage. Likewise, it condemns all unnatural sexual behavior such as incestuous abuse, child molestation, homosexual activity and prostitution (1 Corinthians 6:9; Romans 12:6-27). Through various cultures and customs have evolving definitions of marriage, it is God alone who has ultimate authority to prescribe and describe the marital relationship (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:1-9; Mark 10:1-12).
 
In the healing of the body by Divine power or Divine healing, in its varied aspects, as practiced in the early church. (Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11, 1 Cor. 12:9; James 5:14)
 
In the table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers. (1 Cor. 11:28-32)
 
In the reality and personality of Satan and the eternal judgment of Satan and his angels. (Matt. 25:41; Rev. 20:10-15)
 
In the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE existing in THREE persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible. (Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 14:14)
 
In the creation, test, and fall of man, as recorded in the book of Genesis, his total depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness. (Romans 5:12, 18)
 
Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples. (1 Cor. 15:1-4; Romans 4:25)
 
In the bodily Ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation, and personal, literal, and bodily return the second time for the church. (John 14:2-3; 1 Thess. 4:13-18)
 
In the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith, in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary, by which we obtain remission of sins. (Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 9:12; Rom. 5:11)
