The following are the core beliefs of LifeChurch West Chester based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. Click here for a complete list of fundamental truths held by the Assemblies of God.
The Holy Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Jesus is the eternal Son of God, born in human form. He lived a perfect life, and willingly died on the cross as a sacrifice to pay the price for our sin. He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, and he will return.
The Holy Spirit of God dwells in believers and is at work in the world, as a sourse of guidance and comfort. The spirit both points out our sins and directs us to Christ. He empowers believers for ministry with spiritual gifts.
Though originally good, man willingly fell to in–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
Water baptism is the outward sign of the inward change of new life in Christ. We do this in obedience to following Jesus upon salvation.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
