BELIEFS

OUR DNA

OUR PURPOSE

Southpointe Community Church is an organization, but it’s not just an organization ... it’s a vision, a movement anda mindset.  Our vision is to become a missional-community of transformed worshippers.  Our mission is to seek to glorify God by  bringing the Southpointe area and where we serve into a life-changing encounter with the Kingdom of God. We believe that we exist for three simple, but profound reasons:

Christ
: Our desire is to make the person of Jesus Christ the unavoidable issue in all things, to all people (rather thanChrist being familiar, yet peripheral to life).

Community: Our desire is to see people woven into a bigger story where their lives are able to experience love andthey are able to make a significant contribution (rather than being merely affiliated with an organization).

Cause: SPCC exists to be a missional organization (rather than a group of religious consumers). We are called by God to participate with Him in His redemptive work of “making all things new.”We are called by God to make a substantive, eternal difference in people, places and things.  

OUR BELIEFS

We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the originalmanuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s Truth and is infallible, inerrant, and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.  We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and theHoly Spirit. We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy. We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save.  (is this sentence needed based on all the others ones here?) We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith. We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death on the cross atoned forthe sins of all who will trust in Him alone for salvation. 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 God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successivegenerations according to His Covenant promises. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ andfollow Him. We believe that Jesus will return – bodily and visibly – to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself. We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
