These are the beliefs we hold as ArborSpring community, which undergird our ministry and life together:
We believe that there is one God, Creator and Ruler of all, existing eternally in the three persons of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his death and atonement for our sin through his shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, and in his personal return in power and glory. Salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone and comes by grace through faith in him.
We believe that the Holy Spirit, through the gospel proclaimed or incarnated, convicts our hearts, persuading us to repent of our sin and confess Jesus as Lord, and it is by the Holy Spirit's work that we are reconciled to God through his Son, transformed into the likeness of Jesus, able to live a godly life, and manifest the fruit, gifts and power of the Spirit.
We believe that Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven and will return to raise the dead, to consummate his kingdom, to separate the wicked from God's presence; and, the righteous, in glorious bodies, shall live and reign with him forever.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God; it is our standard for faith and practice.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers who comprise the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is summoned by him to offer worship to God and to serve him as Christ's disciples, engaging with Jesus in his three-fold gospel ministry of preaching, teaching and healing, that people everywhere might come into right relationship with him, one another and all of creation, to the glory of God and the fulfillment of his sovereign will.
