What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Centerpoint Church Colton based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God in both the New and Old Testaments (2 Timothy 3:16; John 17:17; 2 Peter 1:21)

God

We believe that there is only one God. This God exists in the form of three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
(Matthew 3:16-17 & 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14;  John 14:16)

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 20; Luke 1:34-35). Jesus Christ is both fully divine (John 1:1, Philippians 2:6) and fully human (John 1:14). He will return someday for believers and dwell with them forever (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit lives within every believer at the point of salvation (John 14:16-18; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19). This indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, which occurs at salvation, is called the baptism of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13). The filling of the Holy Spirit is an experience, which follows salvation, and occurs when believers submit themselves to the controlling power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:5). The Holy Spirit gives various spiritual gifts to believers (1 Corinthians 12:11). The purpose of these gifts is the building up of the church (1 Corinthians 14:3-5, 12, 17, 26)

Satan

We believe Satan is real (Matthew 13:19, 39; Acts 5:3, 2 Corinthians 11:14), but God is more powerful than Satan and has already defeated the power of Satan on the cross (Hebrews 2:14-15). Satan is the originator of evil in our world (Genesis 3:1-7; Ephesians 6:10-12)

Sin

We believe that all people have sinned
(Romans 3:9, 10, 22, 23; Psalm 14; Isaiah 53:6)

Salvation

We believe that Christ died for all people (Romans 5:18; 2 Corinthians 5:19; 1 John 2:2), but only those who accept the forgiveness offered by Christ will be saved (John 3:16; 1 Timothy 1:16). Those who have not accepted this forgiveness will suffer eternal punishment (Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:11-15). Salvation is  on the basis of faith only (Ephesians 2:8-9), but this salvation is evidenced by a life that is changed by the power of God (John 8:31 & 4:15; 1 John 2:3)
Centerpoint Church is a non-denominational church. For the purpose of community and mission, we do belong to a network of churches called Transformation Ministries.
