What We Believe

What We Believe At SCC:

We believe in Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, and He is the only way to be saved from sin and Hell when we repent and put our faith and trust in Him. We believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and that He is coming back soon. We believe Jesus is the Name Above All Names (Luke 13:3, John 14:6, 2 Thessalonians 1:8, Acts 4:12)

We believe in the Godhead, God three in one the Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost, all fully God. (1 John 5:7)

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, not of works lest any man should boast. We believe that the Grace of God that brings salvation changes us and teaches us how to live. We do not have saving grace while continuing a life of sin as faith can be shipwrecked and turned away from. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 2:11-12, 1 Timothy 1:19, Romans 11:22)

We reject doctrines that are not in the Bible such as: “Once Saved Always Saved (OSAS)”, Purgatory, Dispensationalism,  Hebrew Roots (Yeshua, Amein, Ashaya, Yahawashi or certain names necessary besides Jesus), Cessationism, Anitomianism.

We believe the King James Bible is the perfect inerrant Word of God and is the final say in any matters concerning the faith. We believe all 66 books are applicable to today. We do not believe in dispensationalism and we believe the Holy Ghost works the same way today as He did in the Book of Acts. God does not change. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8)

We believe marriage is between a biologically born male human being and a biologically born female human being only. (Genesis 5:2, Genesis 18:20-21, Genesis 19:4-5, Leviticus 20:13, Matthew 19:4-6, Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Jude 1:6-7)

We believe in an eternal Hell, a place of everlasting torment in flames for those who die without Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We believe the devil, Satan, is not in charge of Hell which is a place of God’s judgment where he will also burn with the unsaved forever in the Lake of Fire. We believe Satan is on this earth with his legions of demons doing whatever it takes to drag as many souls to the Lake of Fire with him and hates us all because we are made in God’s image. (Mark 9:48, Revelation 20)

We believe Jesus left earth to give us the Comforter, The Holy Ghost, who gives us gifts and discernment and guides us on our journey. We believe that all of the gifts of the Holy Ghost are still in use today but do not believe that any specific gift is necessary for salvation and no gift of the Holy Ghost would contradict the order given to us in scripture. (John 14:26, John 16:7, 1 Corinthians 12)

We reject participating in Halloween and any other pagan holiday. We do Celebrate all Christian Holidays that honor our Lord Jesus Christ.

We do not believe we are the only true church or the only church that someone can be saved in.
