Kyle David Worship Pastor Breawna Trammel Accounting What We Believe We believe that you matter to God. The same awesome God who created the universe created you. He wants to give your life true meaning and purpose. We believe there is only one God, who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is fully God, yet each is personally distinct from the other. We believe Jesus Christ was crucified and died on the cross, was resurrected from the dead, and ascended to heaven. Someday he will return to Earth to conclude history and fulfill God’s plan. We believe the bible is the Word of God, written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write down exactly what God wanted to communicate to us. We believe men and women were created by God to live in relationship with him. But the first two humans, Adam and Eve, chose to rebel against God, bringing sin into the world. Sin spread like a virus to all humans, separating us from God. We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins. It is only through faith in Jesus Christ – not by being a good person or doing good deeds – that a person can be restored to a right relationship with God. We believe the Holy Spirit comes to live within a person once they cross the line of faith. He gives us power to live as God wants us to live, and gives us spiritual gifts to serve the church and change the world. We believe the local church is the hope of the world. We believe Jesus is coming back again. He is our hope.
