Beliefs

What we believe at FBCScottsdale about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God, Savior, and Lord of all creation; he is the perfect revelation of God as well as God incarnate, the only mediator between God and humanity.


Colossians 1:15-20 | Titus 2:11-14


God

We believe in the omnipotent God who eternally exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: three divine persons sharing one eternal divine life and being. God is the creator of all whose rule knows no end.


Genesis 1:1 | Psalm 103:19 | John 15:26


Humanity

We believe that human persons are created in God’s image and likeness but that all persons (except Jesus Christ) need redemption.


Genesis 1:27 | Romans 3:10 | Romans 3:23


Redemption

We believe the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ provide the only redemption from sin and that Christ died for all people; reconciliation and new life connected to God are possible only through his death and resurrection.


John 3:16-17 | Romans 5:8


Salvation by Grace

We believe that salvation is by God’s grace alone through faith and that people cannot save themselves by works of righteousness but that works of righteousness are products of the Holy Spirit who indwells believers by faith.


2 Corinthians 12:9 | Ephesians 2:8-9 | 2 Timothy 1:9


Conversion

We believe that authentic Christian life begins with conversion to Christ which involves repentance and faith in him; conversion to Christ results in justification (forgiveness) and regeneration (new birth). These are gifts that cannot be earned or inherited.


John 3:3-5 | Romans 10:9-10 | 2 Corinthians 7:10 | 1 John 5:12


Scripture and Creeds

We believe that the sixty-six books of Holy Scripture are inspired by God’s Spirit and are the sole supreme authority under God for Christian believing and living; Jesus Christ is the norm by which we interpret Scripture. 


1 Thessalonians 2:13 | 2 Timothy 3:16


The Church

We believe that the church was instituted by Jesus Christ to be the people of God and is made up of all true believers regardless of race, gender, age, or station in life; the church visible is the local congregation of believers.


Acts 2:42-47 | Romans 12:5 | Ephesians 2:20-22
