What we believe at Codell Community Church about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe God created and sustains all things and is at work in the world to redeem all of creation. We believe that God is holy and abounding in love and all that is good, beautiful, and true have their origin in him.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, fully human and fully divine, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived, taught, died on the cross for our sins and bodily rose again for our redemption and ascended into heaven.
We believe in the gift of the Holy Spirit at conversion: indwelling, guiding, convicting, and strengthening us to live and bear fruit in the Kingdom of God.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and is our authority in faith and action as well as revealing the story of God and his on-going redemption of humanity. The Bible is not only our authority and informs us, but it also transforms us as the Holy Spirit uses it to shape our lives as we live in Christ.
We believe that all people have fallen and sinned and become estranged from God. The result of our sin is the pain, suffering, and alienation that have entered all of creation.
We believe that it is through faith/confidence in Christ alone that we are rescued from sin and death, both now and for eternity.
We believe in the present reality and power of the Kingdom of God and that we have been invited to enter into it as we join with God in his work in the world.
We believe in the dignity and worth of all people, created in the very image of God. We believe in God’s deep desire for each man, woman and child to be reconciled and in relationship with Him. Furthermore, all people are created to reflect the glory and goodness of God.
We believe in the universal church as the fellowship of believers and as the body of Christ sent to the world to reveal the Kingdom of God. This is lived out through the local church, which eagerly invites others to join them in following Jesus.
We believe all who put their faith/confidence in Jesus are called to be his disciples and to experience spiritual transformation into the character of Jesus Christ. Our intentional effort is required to pursue this change in cooperation with the action of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that sin and suffering will not have the last word, but we anticipate Jesus’s return to set the world right and irrevocably establish his eternal kingdom of love and justice.
