WHAT WE BELIEVE
At Encounter, we base all of our beliefs on the authority of Scripture. we strive to maintain Biblical standards of living and leadership. We believe true living begins with an encounter with JESUS CHRIST.
We believe the entire Bible is inspired by God and without error. The Bible is the authority on which we base our faith, conduct, and doctrine.
See 2 Timothy 3:16.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God the Father is the Creator of the world and is actively involved in humanity. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth as Savior of the world. We believe that the Holy Spirit is continuing the work of Jesus upon the earth. See Matthew 28:19.
We believe that Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sin. We believe that salvation is only found by placing our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again. See Romans 5:1; 5:8-9.
THE GREAT COMMANDMENT
We believe loving God wholeheartedly and loving people unconditionally is what we've been commanded. You are always welcome at Encounter Church, no matter what paths life has taken you. See Matthew 22:37-38-40
THE GREAT COMMISSION
We believe that God has commissioned us to train everyone we meet, in this new way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name of the: Father, Son, and Holy Spirt. Then instruct them to the practice of all He has commanded.
