Prescott Christian Church exists to make disciples starting in Prescott.
The following are beliefs we hold true about God and His Word:
+ There is one true God who in the beginning, created out of nothing, the world in which we live.
(Genesis 1 & 2)
+ Jesus is the eternally existing, one and only Son of God who died for our sins and was raised bodily from the dead.
(1 Corinthians 15:1–8)
+ The Holy Spirit of God works to convict, create, encourage, equip, empower, teach and seal the believer in a saving, eternal relationship with God.
(John 16:7–11; John 14:15–18; Galatians 5:22–23; Ephesians 1:13–14)
+ The Bible is the inspired Word of God – useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
(2 Timothy 3:16)
+ Every person has worth as a creation of God; we have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
+ Forgiveness of sin and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as their Savior and Lord.
+ Salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
+ Those accepting Christ as Lord should repent of sin, confess their faith and be baptized into Him.
(Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38)
+ The church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and exists to save the lost and equip the saved.
+ Jesus Christ will one day return to earth in victory and reign forever as King of Kings and Lord of Lords
(1 Thessalonians 4:13–18).
+ We believe God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
+ We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture.
+ We believe God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married. We believe God has commanded no intimate sexual activity be engaged outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
(1 Corinthians 6:18; 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4)
+ We believe any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, beastiality, incest and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God.
(Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
+ We believe God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
(Acts 3:19-21; Romans 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
+ We believe every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity.
(Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31)
Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Prescott Christian Church.
+ We believe in order to preserve the function and integrity of Prescott Christian Church as the local Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to the Prescott Christian Church Partners and the community, it is imperative all persons employed by Prescott Christian Church in any capacity, volunteers included, agree to and abide by the statements on marriage, gender and sexuality.
(Matthew 5:16, Philippians 2:14-16; 1 Thessalonians 5:22)
+ The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all we believe. For purpose of Prescott Christian Church’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy and discipline, our Elder Board is Prescott Christian Church’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
