What does One Church Scottsdale believe about the scriptures?

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, and that men were moved by the Spirit to write words of Scripture. We believe it is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

What does One Church Scottsdale believe about God?

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world, and that He sent God’s Holy Spirit to us to comfort us, to be our advocate, to fill us with spiritual gifts, to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit within us, and to lead us into a greater knowledge of God.

What does One Church Scottsdale believe about mankind?

We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.

What does One Church Scottsdale believe about salvation?

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sin. Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father but by Me.” He said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

What does One Church Scottsdale believe about the Christian life?

We believe that every Christian should live for God and not for him or herself. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit, every believer will mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.

What does One Church Scottsdale believe about the church?

We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world.
