Our Beliefs

Our faith and beliefs are pretty simple and follow typical Christian tradition.  If you’re not familiar with what that encompasses, below is a quick summary.  If you’d like to ask us more about them please feel free to email us: hartsfields@uponthousands.org

      • God is the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
      • Jesus Christ is God’s one and only son, our one and only Savior.
      • Jesus was born in Bethlehem, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary.
      • Jesus suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilot.
      • Jesus died, was buried, and rose again bodily from the dead on the third day.
      • Jesus ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father.
      • Jesus will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.
      • The Holy Spirit is an active and operative part of the triune God and indwells every Christian.
      • The Bible is God’s Holy Word and Scripture. We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and those writings are consequently without error.
      • The Bible is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
      • The Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequentially lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
      • The Bible teaches salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
      • The Bible teaches that one receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ and being immersed into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.
      • The Church (the worldwide body of Jesus’ followers) was founded on the day of Pentecost and consists of all Christians everywhere.
