SEVEN KEY BELIEFS WE HAVE AT THE CHURCH OF OAKLAND
We Believe GOD is the Creator and Ruler of all things. We worship one GOD in Three Personalities, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. GOD is Eternal, Perfect, Holy and the sole object and aim of our worship and living. It is in GOD we live, move and exist.
We Believe Jesus Christ is the Son of GOD, is equally GOD and came to earth to provide the way of salvation for us through His death on the cross and His resurrection. His sinless life showed us the heart of GOD. Jesus is in Heaven and will return for His Church made up of those who have called upon Him for salvation. Jesus Christ’s coming to save us is what we call the “Good News” or the “Gospel.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We Believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of GOD, is equally GOD, has spoken through the Scriptures and makes us aware that we need a Savior in Jesus. The Holy Spirit compels, fills, seals, instructs, gifts and directs Believers in daily Christian living. The explosive power of the Spirit gives us new life in GOD through His Son Jesus.
