Pinnacle's Statement of Faith
We believe that the Scriptures are inspired by God, infallible and authoritative, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary; we believe that as the Messiah, He shed His blood on the cross, dying for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that He arose bodily from the grave and ascended into heaven; we believe that each person finds salvation only through faith in Jesus Christ as his or her Savior.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity, equal with Go the Father and God the Son; He draws every human toward God; He indwells every believer from the moment of salvation and empowers the Jesus follower for a life that is honoring to God.
We believe that all Jesus followers are members of the body of Christ throughout the world, regardless of organizational affiliation, and that the church exists to proclaim the Gospel and serve everyone as Jesus served.
Our Core Value is Love: LOVING GOD, LOVING OTHERS, LOVING OURSELVES
Mark 12:28-34 (NLT) 28 One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the debate. He realized that Jesus had answered well, so he asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29 Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The LORD our God is the one and only LORD. 30 And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ 31 The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” 32 The teacher of religious law replied, “Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth by saying that there is only one God and no other. 33 And I know it is important to love him with all my heart and all my understanding and all my strength, and to love my neighbor as myself. This is more important than to offer all of the burnt offerings and sacrifices required in the law.” 34 Realizing how much the man understood, Jesus said to him, “You are not far from the Kingdom of God.” And after that, no one dared to ask him any more questions.
Our Core Value is loving God, loving others and loving ourselves. When each of us learns the power of loving God, loving others, and loving self each person is free to effectively follow Jesus wherever He leads. It is our belief that along our journey, most people have either forgotten how to love, or they never learned to love in the first place. So, our core value is for every person in our community to practice loving God, loving others, and loving self. Love is not an idea, it is an action.
Our Core Value stands on three legs:
- Making Disciples Who Make Disciples (Matthew 28:18-20)
- Proclaiming the Good News (John 3:16-17)
- Trusting God Inspired Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16)
The Seven Core Practices help us to stay connected to God and to better equipped to live by our core value and the three legs it stands upon. The seven practices are:
- Making Disciples Who Make Disciples
- Proclaiming the Good News
- Studying Scripture
