Plateau Christian Church is a conservative, non-denominational congregation in fellowship with the Independent Christian Churches/Churches of Christ who find their identity in the Restoration Movement.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in one God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 5:16,45; 6:1,4,8,9; James 1:17; John 1:1; 14:9; Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16-20; 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible. (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3)
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, my one and only Savior, who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human & fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit & the virgin Mary; (Matthew 21:11; John 19:1-9; 1:14; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1;Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38)
Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate; (Luke 23:1-46)
Who died, was buried, & rose from the dead on the third day; (Luke 23:44-24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
Who ascended into Heaven & now sits at the right hand of the Father; (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1)
Who will return to judge the living & the dead; (Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5)
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is an active and operative part of the triune God; (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8: Romans 8:26-27)
Who indwells every Christian. (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14)
We believe in the Bible—God's Holy Word
We believe God inspired the authors of the Bible & those authors were consequently without error in their writings. (Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:9-15; Acts1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice. (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)
We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ. (Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)
We believe the Bible teaches that salvation is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; I Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7).
We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ; repenting of sin; confessing Christ; and being immersed into Christ; but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation. (Romans 5:1 -2; Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19: 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9;Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9: Philippians 2:11; 1 John. 4:15; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27: Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21).
We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere. (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)
We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise leadership over the local congregation. (Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1.-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
