What we believe at St. Andrews about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church
Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. In the person of Jesus of Nazareth, the eternal Son of God uniquely entered human history and became a real human being, fully human and fully God. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We believe in one, sovereign, eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He eternally exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that the Bible is God’s uniquely revealed and written Word, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and the church’s first and final authority in all areas of faith and life. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. While there is an inalienable glory and nobility to human beings because we are God’s image bearers, this image is now broken and distorted, and even our best and noblest actions are contaminated by sin.
We believe that in order to appropriate forgiveness and gain a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together to worship God and enjoy God's presence and work in the community of believers.
