Life Connection Church Orlando Core Beliefs


We believe that God created the Heavens and the Earth.

We believe that God created man in His image.

We believe that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to take the burden of

ALL our sin so that we can be righteous in His eyes and have ETERNITY with Him by

simply believing in His saving grace, that Jesus died on the Cross with our sin, then

DEFEATED SIN AND DEATH by rising from the grave on the third day.

We believe that it is by believing this truth in our hearts that we are saved and by

nothing else so that no one can boast.

We believe that Jesus ascended into Heaven where He sits on the throne at the right

hand of our Almighty God and that He has sent the Holy Spirit to indwell in those who believe in Him

to teach us, help us, and be our Advocate.

We believe that He is coming again to usher us into eternity with

Him.

We believe that in the essentials of our faith, there is unity; in the non-essentials, there

is liberty; and in all matters, there is charity and love.

Amen.


The following outline presents an overview of our doctrinal beliefs:


THE WORD OF GOD

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the

original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has

supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (Jn. 17:17; Rom. 15:4; 2Tim. 3:16-

17; 2Pet. 1:19-21)


THE TRINITY

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons –

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that they are equal in every divine perfection, and that

they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and

redemption. (Matt. 28:19; Jn. 1:1-4; 1Jn 5:7)


GOD THE FATHER

We believe in God, the heavenly Father, an infinite personal spirit, perfect in holiness,

wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs

of men, that He hears and answers prayers, that He saves from sin and death all who

come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Jn. 3:16-17; Jn. 4:24; Jn. 17:5)


JESUS CHRIST

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten and eternal Son, conceived by the Holy

Spirit in His humanity. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and

teachings. We believe that He died on the cross for our sin, rose from death, ascended

into heaven, continually intercedes for His people, and will personally return to earth.

(Isa. 7:14; Jn. 1:14; Phil. 2:5-11; Heb. 1:2-3; Jn. 1:7; 1Jn. 5:18)


THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convince the

world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all

who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in

Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (Jn. 14:26; Jn. 16:7-15;

Rom. 8:14-17; Eph. 1:13-14)


RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

We believe that every human being has direct relations with God and is responsible to

God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from

interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that therefore church and state

must keep separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from

dictation or patronage of the other.


REGENERATION

We believe that all men are sinners by nature and because of our fallen choices, and

therefore, we are all under condemnation without Christ. We believe that those who

repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy

Spirit. (Jn. 1:12-13; Jn. 3:3,16,17; Acts 20:21; Eph. 2:1-19; Titus 3:5)


THE CHURCH

We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head,

and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of

a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and

associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the

members of the local church the primary task of giving the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a

lost world. (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 2:38-41; Eph. 2:19-22; Eph. 5:25-27)


CHRISTIAN CONDUCT

We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the wellbeing of his

fellowmen; that his conduct should be blameless before the world; that he should be a

faithful steward of his possessions; and that he should seek to realize for himself and

others, the full stature of maturity in Christ. (2Cor. 9:6-8; Eph. 4:11-16; Phil. 2:14-16;

1Cor. 3:17-23; 1Thes. 5:17-18)


THE ORDINANCES

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the local church to practice two

ordinances, Baptism and Communion. We believe that the Christian Baptism is the

immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Communion was instituted by Christ Jesus for commemoration of His

death. We believe that these two ordinances should be practiced until the return of the

Lord Jesus Christ. (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; Rom. 6:3-5; 1Cor. 11:23-32)


THE LAST THINGS

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the

establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final

judgement, the eternal happiness of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the

wicked. (Jn. 5:28-29; Rev. 20:1-15; 2Cor. 5:10; Matt. 25:31-46)
