What We Believe
At Generations Church, we believe in miracles! We're a nondenominational, charismatic church with a Spirit-filled heritage. Here are some other important truths we hold dear:
We believe in one God, omnipotent, perfect, all-knowing and eternally existing in the three persons of the Trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, pre-existent and perfect. Born of a virgin in human form, Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross for the sins of the world. He arose victoriously from the dead in three days and ascended to His Father's side where He intercedes for believers today.
We believe in the Spirit-led life! The Holy Spirit is present in the world to bring the sinner to repentance and to provide the Christian with spiritual gifts for living, understanding of truth and guidance in doing what is right. If we ask God to baptize us in the Holy Spirit, He is faithful to do so with the benefit of speaking in tongues.
The Bible is the holy Word of God, divinely inspired, inerrant and timeless. It is the supreme source of truth for our lives.
All men will exist forever, either with God in Heaven or separated from God in Hell. Although man has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by disobedience and sin which separates us from God. However, God desires to bring all mankind into His presence to live as His children.
Jesus Christ, through His death on the cross, provided salvation as a free gift for all mankind. We receive salvation by grace through faith, not through good works. Man is given free will to receive or reject Christ's salvation. This new life we are given is an abundant life in this world and an eternal life in the world to come.
As the body of Christ in the earth, the purpose of the church is to glorify God through fellowship, discipleship, worship, prayer, outreach and evangelism. Christ has commissioned us to heal the sick, deliver the oppressed and preach the gospel to the world.
