Statement OF Faith

Copalis Community Church Front Entrance

These are the truths that Copalis Community Church affirms

  • We Believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God, and that they are the supreme and final authority on faith and life (1 Timothy 3:16). 
  • We believe in one God, eternal, existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19,20). 
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, sinless life, death, resurrection, present exaltation at God's right hand, and personal and imminent return (John 1:1-4; 1 John 5:20; 1 John 2:22, 23). 
  • We Believe that salvation is provided through the death of our Lord Jesus Christ and that all who believe and receive Him are justified by faith on the grounds of His shed blood (Romans 6:23; Titus 3:5; Romans 5:1; John 1:12). 
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, without sin; but the whole human race fell in the sin of the first Adam, and apart from Christ is spiritually dead and lost (Romans 5:12; 3:23).
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, the Comforter sent by the Lord Jesus Christ to indwell, to guide, and to teach the believer, and to reprove the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement (John 14:16,17; Romans 8:11).
  • We believe that Satan is a personal being and has control over unregenerated mankind (1 Peter 5:8,9; Ephesians 2:1-3).
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved unto everlasting life and blessedness in Heaven, and the resurrection of the unsaved unto everlasting punishment in Hell (John 5:28,29; 11:25,26).
  • We believe that the Church is the Body and Bride of Christ, consisting only of those who are born again, for whom He now makes intercession in Heaven and for whom He shall come again (1 Corinthians 12:12,13; Ephesians 1:22,23).
  • We believe that all believers are baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ at one's conversion (1 Corinthians 12:13), and they are equipped with one or more spiritual gifts for the edification of the Body of Christ and the glory of God (1 Corinthians 12:4; 14:1, Galatians 5:22,23).
  • We believe that the church is to be involved in local and world missions (Matthew 28:19,20).
