Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.  He  ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.  Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6;

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

What We Believe About The Holy Spirit at Jericho Road Church in Muskegon, Michigan

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every  Christian from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  He gives  every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved.  As Christians we seek to live  under His control daily. Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17;  Galatians 5:25; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16;

What We Believe About The Bible at Jericho Road Church in Muskegon, MI

ABOUT THE BIBLE

The Bible is God’s Word to us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living.  Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

2 Timothy 3:16, 1:13; 2 Peter 1:20-21;

Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5

ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS

What We Believe About Human Beings at Jericho Road Church in Muskegon, Michigan

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character.  People are the supreme object of God’s creation.  Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God  called sin.  Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our life.  Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2

What We Believe About Salvation at Jericho Road Church in Muskegon, MI

ABOUT SALVATION

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it.  We can never make up for  our sin by

self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as  God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.  When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:2, 14:6;

Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1, 10:9-10

ABOUT ETERNITY

What We Believe About Eternity at Jericho Road Church in Muskegon, Michigan

People were created to exist forever.  We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.  To be eternally separated from God is hell.  To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.  Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.  John 3:16, 14:17; Romans 6:23, 8:17-18; 1 Corinthians 2:7-9; Revelation 20:15
