ReSoul Church is your home!
To create a multicultural community of hundreds of happy homes built by faith in Christ.
We believe the Scriptures to be the verbally inspired Word of God in its entirety, sixty-six books composing the Old and New Testaments, is without error in the original writings and is the final authority for faith and life.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; Matthew 5:18; 2 Peter 1:20-21; John 16:12-13)
We believe in one God, without end, existing in three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
We believe that the Son of God who is without end, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of Mary who was a virgin, in order that He, Jesus Christ, might reveal God and restore men who have walked away from God back to Him.
(John 1:1-2; John 1:14; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6-7)
We believe that He accomplished our restoration back to God, through His death on the cross as a sacrifice and that the dismissal of all charges made against us is made certain by his literal physical resurrection.
(Romans 3:24-25; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1 Peter 2:24)
We believe that He ascended to heaven, and is now given the highest honor at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Defender.
(Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 7:25, 9: 24; Romans 8: 34; 1 John 2:1-2)
We believe in the literal, physical and personal return of Jesus Christ to establish the Messianic Kingdom on earth for one thousand years in fulfillment of the promises to Israel; and that before this He will come for His bride the Church; those who have died prior to His coming will be resurrected and those alive will be lifted upwards into the glorified state.
(Kingdom – Isaiah 11:1-6; 32:1-20; 65:17-25; Psalm 2:6-9, 72; Samuel 7:12-16; Jeremiah 31:38-40; 33:15; Daniel 7:13-14; Micah 4:1-8; Zechariah 9:10; Luke 1:31-33; Matthew 19:28; Acts 15:15-17)
(Church – John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-17; 5:9-10; Revelations 3:10)
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, though Omnipresent from all eternity, became resident in the world in a special sense on the day of Pentecost according to the promise of God. We believe that He takes residence in every believer, and by His baptism, which occurs at the time of the exchanged life, unites all believers to Christ in one body. We believe that He as the indwelling One is the source of all power and all acceptable worship and service.
(John 14:16-17; 16:7-15; Romans 8: 9; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 12:12-13)
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved and thus of himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.
(Genesis 1:26-27; Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 3:22-23; 5:12)
We believe that it is absolutely essential for man to enter into an exchange life, that is , to be reborn, recreated by the Holy Spirit with this rebirth, he is no longer conformed to the world system but redirected to the things of the Spirit, in order to be saved. We believed that the only way to salvation is to turn in genuine faith from the heart to Jesus Christ as leader and forgiver.
(John 3:3-5; Titus 3:5-7; Ephesians 2:8-10; Ezekiel 36:25-27; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Peter 1:23; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Timothy 2:5; John 1:12-13; Romans 10:9-10)
We believe in the necessity of the empowering by the Holy Spirit (also called baptism in the Holy Spirit, used here in a stricter sense) for service sometimes accompanied by – though not necessarily- evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives expression. This second work of the Holy Spirit (also involving other gifts) is distinct from His indwelling at the time of entering into the exchanged life although both may occur at the same time.
(Matthew 3:11; John 20:21-23; Acts 1:8, 2:4, 8:12-17, 19:1-7)
We believe in the necessity for continuous infilling of the Holy Spirit, the further work of the Holy Spirit, for constant victorious living and for fresh charge of power appropriate to the distinct and different challenges of our walk to perfect conformity with Jesus Christ.
(Acts 4:8-12; Ephesians 5:18; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 8:14, 29-30)
We believe that the Church, which is the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of persons with exchanged lives, not any specific organization.
(Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 11: 2)
We believe that the establishment and continuation of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament.
(Acts 14:27; 20:17, 20:28-32; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has left two ordinances to be observed by the Church in commemoration of His person and work. The one is baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. The other is the partaking of the Lord’s Supper.
(Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41, 2:46, 16:33; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32)
We believe that the true members of the body of Christ, the Church, can rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word and will progressively exhibit in their lives the character of Christlikeness, such as righteousness, holiness, and love.
(1 John 5:11-13; Romans 8:15-16; Titus 2:11-14; Matthew 7:20-23; John 13:35; 1 John 2:5-6, 3:14; Ephesians 2:8-10; James 2:17, 26; Galatians 5:22-23)
We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Church for the bulding up of the body and the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Mark 16:17-18; John 14:12-14; 1 Corinthians 12:14; Romans 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:7-13)
We believe that the true Church of Jesus Christ is the One Church of history, begun in Pentecost and different from Israel, related not by organizational ties but by a vital life in the Spirit. We believe that it was founded upon the basic doctrinal faith of the apostles, continued through time by the overseeing of God. There is one Father, one Lord, one Spirit, one faith, one body, one baptism, and one hope of calling.
(Ephesians 4:1-16; Acts 2:41; Galatians 1:8-9; Jude)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to perpetual punishment.
(Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29, 11:25-26; Revelations 20:6, 13)
We believe that it is the obligation of those with an exchange life to demonstrate and model by life and by word the truths of the Scripture and to seek to present the good news to all mankind.
(Mark 16:16; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:18-20; 1 Peter 2:9-10; Matthew 28:18-20)
