A list of “beliefs” can sometimes appear quite cold and sterile when trying to summarise how magnificent God, His creation and the transformative life-changing message of Jesus Christ is. However, we have tried to capture the “essence” of what lies at the core of Dublin West Community Church’s declaration of faith below:
There is one God who exists eternally as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Scriptures are entirely trustworthy and are the supreme authority in all matters of belief and practice.
All people are sinners, are spiritually dead, and incapable of saving themselves from being separated from God forever.
God in His love sent His Son, Jesus, who became a man and lived a sinless life. In dying Jesus took the punishment for man’s sin. He rose from the dead, and all who trust in Him are put right with God and given eternal life.
All those who trust in Jesus become members of His Church.
The Church exists locally as groups of Christians joined for worship, prayer, fellowship, teaching, ministry, and outreach.
The Christian is to live a life of obedience to God by the enabling power of the Holy Spirit.
The Lord Jesus Christ will return as promised for His Church, to judge the world, and establish His Kingdom.
