Our Beliefs

Rivers Edge Church is a part of the Assemblies of God and shares its beliefs we call the "Fundamental Truths".  The A.G. is a fellowship of Pentecostal churches that believe, teach and practice the full Gospel - including the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit today - in and through believers as evidence for the claims of Jesus to save, heal, deliver and transform the lives of those who believe in Him.


OUR CORE TRUTHS

#1 Jesus - We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

#2 Bible - We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings.

#3 Salvation - We believe that the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe in and practice the holy ordinance of water baptism, which signifies the believer's death, burial, and resurrection into new life with Christ Jesus, and the regular celebration of Holy Communion as commanded by our Lord.

#4 Holy Spirit Power - We believe in the present ministry and baptism of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
