At Access Church, we strive to stay relevant with our methods to draw people into a growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Rather than run from culture we have chosen to harness it to connect with people and show them God's timeless truths. While we may look un-traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position based on what the Bible teaches.
We believe that the Bible is the word of God and is without error. It was written by humans under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme authority on all matters of faith and morality.
We believe in a God who has always existed in three equal persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity has a different role and purpose, but all are equal in power and authority. We believe that God the Father is holy, powerful and unchanging. We believe that He is loving and compassionate and desires a relationship with everyone. We believe that Jesus was completely God and completely human at the same time. He never sinned and therefore could be a substitution for us in fulfilling God's requirement for perfection. We believe that Jesus died on the cross and three days later rose from the dead so that we could have life. Salvation comes through Jesus alone. We believe that the Holy Spirit guides believers. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts and makes us more like Christ.
We believe that every person has been created in God's image. Every person has been given a purpose by God. We also believe that every person has sinned and fallen short of God's standards of perfection. Through Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, people can put their trust in Him and allow Him to trade places with them. We believe that without putting your faith in Jesus that a person cannot be in a right relationship with God and will not spend eternity in Heaven.
THE CHURCH AND ETERNITY:
We believe that Church is God's plan for reaching the world. The Church is responsible for teaching the lessons in the Bible. Every believer plays a vital role in serving in the local church and reaching those who are far from God. We believe that one day Jesus will return and there will be a judgement. Those who have put their faith in Jesus will spend eternity in Heaven with God. Those who haven't will spend eternity away from God in Hell.
