CORE CHRISTIANITY: What We Believe

Articles of Faith

Seminary Covenant Community

 Seminary Covenant Community is to be obedient to Jesus Christ and grow in knowledge and love of God and love our neighbor. 

We accept the Apostles‘ Creed and the Nicene Creed as true statements of the Christian Faith.

 One Triune God

We believe in one God existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and has so revealed Himself to us through the Bible.

 Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the full deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God Incarnate, who by reason of His birth of the Virgin Mary, sinless life, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension and triumphant reign, is the only Mediator between God and man.

 The Holy Scriptures

We believe the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments as "God's Word written", which contain all things necessary for salvation, teaching God's will for His world, and have supreme authority for faith, life and the continuous renewal and reform of the Body of Christ (the Church).

 Justification by Grace through Faith

We believe that people cannot be justified before God by their own strength, merits, or works but are freely justified for Christ's sake through faith when they believe that they are received into God's favor and their sins are forgiven on account of Christ, who by his death made satisfaction for their sins.

 Sanctification by the Holy Spirit

We are called by the Holy Spirit and sanctified as the Holy Spirit continues His gracious activity in the life of the justified believer, perfecting our repentance, nurturing the new life implanted within, transforming us into the image of Christ, and enabling us to do good works in the world.

 The Church Fellowship

We believe in the Christian Church, the fellowship of believers with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Body of Christ is a community of people called out of the world into the service of Jesus Christ and to the commitment of confessing Biblical truth, celebrating Christ's actions in their lives and supporting one another in love as everyone has need.

 Spiritual Gifts

We believe that all believers have received spiritual gifts and abilities for the good of the community. It is the calling of every believer to exercise these gifts, for the building up of the Body of Christ. All are accountable to God for the stewardship of those gifts.

 Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion

We believe that the sacraments were not only to be signs by which people might be identified publicly as members of Christ's universal Body, but that they are signs and testimonies of God's will and grace toward us and His instruments for awakening and strengthening our faith. They are also our testimony of our obedience to God's will and the Holy Spirit in our lives.

The Life of the Church the Body of  Christ

The Organic Church is the Body of Christ is a network of small groups. Each group or community has a birth, growing life and transition. This transition is to multiplication, expansion or death as God brings forth new life.

Every congregation is made up of small groups each having a different purpose and function in the Body.

If one of these groups are non existent or not functioning as God intended, the health of the body is in need of  spiritual renewal or healing.

Finally it is God who brings the Birth, Life and Death of every group, ministry and or congregation.
