Demo Church Where friends become family

Alive Believes...

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory;  that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.

We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love;  that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men;  that He hears and answers prayer;  and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, visible return to earth.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer and that He is the abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide.  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit.

We believe that all men are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord;  that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.

We believe in the international Church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all born again persons are members.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church, baptism and the Lord's Supper.  We believe in baptism by immersion and communion of the Holy Spirit.  Alive Christian Fellowship has the right to ordain or set apart by the laying on of hands, pastors, elders, deacons, and ministers.

We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body, the final judgement and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.

We believe that the Bible in its entirety is the inspired Word of God, and that its writings are eternal truths that are to be experienced and praciced by believers for all time.
