What We Believe

Here at Capstone Church, we operate on certain core Biblical beliefs. We have created a list of the ten we find most important, with Scripture references!

  1. We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20)
  2. We believe God is the creator and sustainer of the universe. (Gen. 1; John 1:3; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:3)
  3. We believe God is triune, three distinct individuals in one God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19-20; John 17:20-21)
  4. We believe Jesus is both Lord and Christ, to the Glory of God the Father. (Acts 1:9-11; Acts 2:36; Phil. 2:9-11)
  5. We believe that whosoever will confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and believes in his heart God raised Him from the dead shall be saved. (Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 2:21; John 1:12)
  6. We believe that the Holy Spirit is sent by Jesus to indwell, empower, teach, guide and comfort believers. (Luke 12:12; Rom. 8:11; John 16:13; Acts 1:7-8; Acts 9:31)
  7. We believe that the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, as evidenced in 1 Cor. 12:4-11, are active today and did not pass away after the first century. (Luke 12:12; Acts 1:5; 2:17-41; 1 Cor. 12:4-11)
  8. We believe that every Christian is called to share the good news of God's kingdom. (Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-18; Acts 1:8)
  9. We believe that the Lord Jesus' death, burial and resurrection from the dead, provided for healing of the spirit, soul and body of all peoples. (1 Peter 2:24)
  10. We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ, who will come to rule as King upon the earth with the saints. (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thes. 4:13; 1 Thes. 5:2; Rev. 19:11-21; Rev. 22:20)
