What We Believe

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Villa Heights Christian Church
based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in
 and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

We believe in God. He is the one true God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; John 14:26; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
We believe in Jesus Christ, that He is truly God and truly man, existing for all eternity and having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a Virgin Mary. He was totally God before His birth and all of His earthly life. He lived a life without sin, was crucified on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven where He now reigns as our High Priest and mediator. Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 8:58; 10:30-38; 12:45; 14:10-30; 17:5,24; Hebrews 1:3; 4:14-15; 7:3; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Colossians 1:17; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; 1 John 2:20-22; Revelation 22:13.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, that His ministry is to glorify Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men of sin, indwell, guide, instruct, comfort, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
We believe in the Scripture. Both Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christians’ faith and life. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 12:6; 19; 105; 160; Proverbs 30:5
Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations. We believe humans were created in the image of God for the purpose of fellowship with God for all eternity. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6;

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time. We are therefore alienated from God and without hope apart from the blood of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2
We believe Satan is real. He desires to “kill, steal, and destroy” the church and that he is ruler over the present world system. Job 1:6; Matthew 4:1; John 10:10-11; 2 Corinthians 11:14; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9; Hebrews 2:14; Ephesians 6:12;1 Peter 5:8; 1 John 3:8
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.  The Bible says we must believe, repent of sin, confess Him as Lord, and be baptized.
We call ourselves Christians, adding no other name of human origin.  Acts 11:26; 26:28; I Corinthians 1:10-12; 1 Peter 4:16; Revelation 22:18-19.
We accept baptism (being immersed in water) as the occasion when a person enters into being saved. The Scriptures show us that this is the proper response to belief in Jesus. Baptism is always accompanied by the personal faith of the person being baptized. Acts 2:38; 8:35-40; Romans 6:3-5; Galatians 3:27, I Corinthians 12:13; Hebrews 11:6
We accept Christ's commission to go and make Christ followers of all nations as our commission and the primary work of the Church in the world. Matthew 28:18-20; Colossians 1:28
God has given us in the Bible "everything we need for life and godliness." 2 Peter 1:2.  We encourage every person to study and understand it for him or herself.
