What We Believe


The Bible
GCI believes the Bible is God's written revelation to man and

comprised of sixty-six books, given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
(1 Cor. 2:7-14; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21)

The Bible is an objective, pro-positional revelation,
(1 Corinthians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 2:13)

verbally inspired in every word, infallible and absolutely inerrant in the original manuscripts.
(2 Timothy 3:16)


GOD
There is only one true and living God

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-7; 1 Corinthians 8:4)

God is an infinite, all-knowing Spirit
(John 4:24)

perfect in all His attributes, one in essence and eternally existing in three Persons
- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit  -
(Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

each equally deserving worship and obedience.

God the FATHER
God the Father, is the Creator of all things.

(Genesis 1:1-31; Ephesians 3:9)

He is sovereign in creation, providence, and redemption.
(Psalm 103:19; Roman 11:36)

His fatherhood involves both His designation within the Trinity and
His relationship with mankind. As Creator He is Father to all men,
(Epesians 4:6)

but He is Spiritual Father only to believers.
(Romans 8:14; 2 Corinthians 6:18)

He continually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and events.
(1 Chronicles 29:11)

In His sovereignty, He is not the author of sin nor does He approve of sin.
(Habakuk 1:13; James 1:13)

Moreover, He does not lessen the accountability of moral, intelligent creatures.
(1 Peter 1:17)

He saves all those who come to Him from their sin and becomes their Father.
(John 1:12; Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:5; Hebrews 12:5-9)

God the SON
God the Son is the second person of the Trinity. He possesses all the divine attributes of God and is coequal, consubstantial, and coeternal with the Father

(John 10:30; 14:9)

God the Father created the heavens and the earth through His Son, Jesus Christ,
by whom all things continue in existence and are held in operation
(John 1:3; Colossians 1:15-17; Hebrews 1:2)

Jesus Christ was born of a virgin by the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit
and by this kept free from the pollution of sin
(Is. 7:14; Matt. 1:23-25; Luke 1:26-35)

Jesus was God incarnate
(John 1:1, 14)

The Scriptures clearly teach that Christ is completely equal with the Father
in His Person and His work. Philippians 2:6 declares without equivocation that
Jesus is to be all that God is and that He possess the whole fullness of attributes of Deity
(Colossians 1:15, 19; Colossians 2:9)

In the incarnation, Christ surrendered only the prerogatives of deity
but none of His divine essence
(John 1:14; 1 John 4:2)

In His incarnation, the Son (the eternally existing second person of the Trinity),
accepted all the essential characteristics of humanity and so became the God-man
(Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 2:9)


God the HOLY SPIRIT
The third person of the Trinity, co-existent and equal with God the Father, God the Son,

“But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name,
will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
(John 14:26)

The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and gives new life to those who
trust in Jesus. He indwells all believers and is available to empower them
to lead Christ-like lives. The Spirit gives them spiritual gifts with which to serve
fellow believers and reach out to a lost and needy world.  
The Holy Spirit is the all-knowing, all-seeing, everywhere-present God.  
(Luke 11:9-13; John 14-16; Acts 5:3-4; 1 John 3:24, 4:13)
