What do we believe?
Here at Holy Cross what we believe is the foundation for what we do as a church and in our personal lives. Our beliefs lead to values and our values are shown through actions. We want to help strengthen your belief in Christ so that your values are in line with what God’s Word teaches.
We’re called to reach out and bring people into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ through dynamic worship of God, vigorous study of His Word, loving care for one another, and committed support of His work throughout the world.
God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
We Believe in The Bible: 2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the complete, divinely inspired, infallible Word of God. The Bible is the supreme authority and guide for our Christian faith and living.
We Believe in The Trinity: Galatians 4:6, Colossians 1:16-17, John 3:16, John 16:13
There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit.
We Believe in Baptism: Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38-39, Luke 18:15-17, John 3:5-6
We believe that God extends His grace to all, including infants, through the gift of Holy Baptism.
We Believe in The Lords Supper (Communion): Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Corinthians 10:16
Through Holy Communion Jesus mysteriously gives us Himself in His body and blood.
We Believe in Eternal Life: John 14:2-3, Revelation 20:14-15
We believe that Jesus is preparing a place for us and that He will literally come back again. We believe that Heaven and Hell are real places and that those in Christ will live with Him forever in Heaven and those who reject Christ as Savior will be separated from Him forever in Hell.
