We depend on God's grace through Jesus. Here are the main Articles of Faith Angelo Bible Church supports. We also have a Full Doctrinal Statement, which is much longer.
God exists in three, co‑equal persons: the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is complete deity and complete humanity united in one, sinless, virgin‑born person who has no beginning or end. He will one day return for His Church.
The death of Christ served as a perfect, God‑satisfying payment for the penalty of the sins of the world. Our justification is assured because of His bodily resurrection from the dead.
One can be delivered from eternal separation from God and given the certainty of eternal life only through personal trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Salvation is not a work of man but a gift from God.
The Bible is the place where God has specifically revealed Himself to man and given a pattern for Christ‑like living.
