Our Beliefs

The Bible

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God, and that it is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. (2 Tim. 3:15,16; 1 Peter 2:2)

 

The Trinity

We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; Mark 12:29; John 5:17-30)

 

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His complete and perfect humanity. We believe in the virgin birth, in His sinless life and His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to Earth in power and glory to rule over the nations. (Isaiah 7:14; Acts 2:22; 1 Cor. 15:3,4; Acts 1:9-11

 

Sin

We believe that man and woman were created good and upright in the image of God, but that they voluntarily sinned by disobeying God and thereby were alienated from God, and incurred both physical and spiritual death. That historic fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation. Because of the fall, each person’s nature is corrupted, and they are thus totally unable to please God. (Gen. 1:26,27; Rom. 5:12-19)

 

Salvation 

We believe that new birth and renewal by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential to salvation, and His indwelling presence necessary for the living of a Godly Christian life; and that it is only by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ that people can be saved. The salvation of all who believe is wholly a work of God’s free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justified them in His sight. (Luke 24:37; Rom. 3:23; 10:13-15; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7)

 

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit as a person, separate and distinct from and co-equal in the triune Godhead with the Father and the Son. He is sent to dwell within the heart of each child of God, to comfort and to lead into all truth. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 2:4; 10:44-46; 15:8,9)

 

Last Things

We believe in the victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ, who will judge all people with justice and mercy, giving over the unrepentant to judgment and condemnation but receiving the redeemed into eternal life. (Matt. 25:26; Mark 9:34-38; Rev. 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8)

 

The Church

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all people, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith. God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement. (Eph. 1:22, 23; 2:22; Heb. 12:23)

 

Ordinances

We believe that Christians are to be baptized and to partake in the Lord’s Supper on a regular basis. (Matt. 29:19; Acts 2:38; 1 Cor. 11:23-26; Matt. 26:20-29)

Our Church Covenant

Church Covenant

 

As a believer in Jesus Christ, acknowledging Him as Savior and Lord of my life, and having been baptized by immersion as a believer, I hereby enter into covenant with Compass Point Church as a member. I have read and understood the church’s Core Values, Statement of Faith, and mission statement. I choose to partner with Compass Point Church according to these documents as they represent the direction and efforts of this church.

 

I am an active participant in the life of Compass Point Church and I commit to contributing my time and energy to the church by using the gifts and abilities the Lord has given me to support the ministry and work of the body. I commit to a lifestyle of extravagant generosity which includes giving to the church as a declaration of God’s rule over all areas of my life and as an expression of thankful worship for the Lord’s provision.

 

 

I willingly submit myself to the leadership of the church in matters of Christian faith and practice, asking the church as a community to keep me accountable to the faith I profess. I commit myself to growing in my relationship with Jesus Christ toward Christian maturity for the glory of God. Should my lifestyle cease to be consistent with a growing, maturing faith, I ask the church to intervene with love and grace in matters of church discipline.
