WHAT DO WE BELIEVE AT SOUTHPOINTE?
We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s Truth and is infallible, inerrant, and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His loving mercy. We believe that salvation is from and by God alone. We believe salvation is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit or works.
We believe the good news – the gospel of Jesus Christ – is for the non-Christian and the Christian seeing the daily need for a Savior and living a life of repentance and faith. We believe that Jesus will return – bodily and visibly – to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death on the cross atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him alone for salvation.
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Scripture references and our full doctrinal statement can be found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, and the Westminster Shorter and Larger Catechisms.
