About God: We believe in the one eternal God who is unlimited in power, holy in His nature, His attributes and His purpose, and who possesses absolute, indivisible deity. We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4 ). He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for the sins of humanity, and physically arose from the grave. We believe that through His death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living.
About The Bible: We believe God originated and inspired the Bible, and that the Bible is God's message to humanity. We accept the Bible as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
About Salvation: We believe that every person has sinned and stands in need of redemption, which is obtained through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again of water and Spirit become children of God (John 3:5, Acts 2:38). We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit of God with the evidence of speaking in another tongue unknown to the believer.
About The Church:
The church has never been perfect. However, we believe the church has been "called out" of the world to be a group of people who follow Jesus Christ. These Christ followers, through the power of the Holy Spirit, will effect genuine spiritual change in their community and those around them. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to humanity. The church is one group of people made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit. The scriptures describe it as a body or a family. Discovery takes seriously our role to serve our community and exists as a place that offers people hope and purpose, even as we challenge people to discover and live a Christ-centered life.
About the Second Coming:
We believe Jesus Christ will return to receive the church unto Himself. At His coming, we believe the dead in Christ will be resurrected from the grave, and we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the air, and we shall ever be with the Lord. We believe in Christ's millennial reign upon the earth.
