WHAT WE BELIEVE
These Are The Core Beliefs Of Salt Life Church
There is only one God, who eternally exist in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The trinity are equal and eternal. God is the creator of all things, who made man in His own image and likeness.
Jesus Christ is God the Son. He has existed from the beginning with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He was fully God and fully man. He left heaven to be born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life, and died on a cross to redeem all mankind. He was buried, but rose from the dead on the third day. He ascended back to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, but He will return again one day for His church, to establish His eternal kingdom.
The Holy Spirit is God, who has existed from the beginning with the Father and the Son. He is our comforter, counselor, and helper. He convicts mankind and makes each person aware of their need for God. He indwells and empowers every believer to live the Spirit filled life, evidenced by the fruit of the Spirit, and spiritual gifts.
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God. It is the final authority and is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof. It cannot be added to or taken from. It is completely infallible. It is the road map for every believer to follow.
Man and woman in the beginning chose to disobey God, resulting in the fall of mankind. The consequence of sin was separation from God and eventual death. Everyone born after Adam and Eve is affected by sin. The "Good News" is Jesus Christ chose to die in our place. He took our punishment and our sin upon Himself. If we confess with our mouth, Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in our heart God raised Him from the dead, we will be saved. We believe, you must confess your sins to God, repent of your sins, and make Jesus Christ, Lord of your life. Salvation can only be found in Jesus Christ.
The church is the body of Christ, meant to be "Salt" to a dying world and "Light" in a dark world. The church should be one unified body working together to accomplish The Great Commission; "Go into all the world making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
Our Mission at Salt Life Church is to build relationships with God and others, so the kingdom of God is increased and advanced.
The Vision of Salt Life Church is to see people experience the life changing power of God through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
