What Does Grace Fellowship Believe?
Authority of Scripture – The Bible is the Word of God, fully true, and is our authority for all that we believe and do (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18).
God – There is one true God who exists eternally in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19; John 14:9; Acts 5:4,9; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
Deity of Christ – Jesus Christ is 100% God and yet 100% human, born of a virgin birth (John 1:1,14; Matthew 1:18-23; Luke 1:26-38).
Substitutionary Atonement – Jesus Christ died on the cross as our substitute – taking upon Himself the penalty for our sins (Romans 5:8; 1 Peter 3:18; Galatians 3:13; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
Resurrection of Christ – Jesus rose from the dead in a bodily resurrection defeating sin and death (1 Corinthians 15:3-6; Romans 6:4-9).
Second Coming – Jesus Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead (Matthew 24-25; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 19-21).
Salvation by Grace through Faith – A person is saved from eternal separation from God as a free gift when that person places their faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12; 3:16; 5:24; Revelation 21:27).
