Statement of Faith

 

These statements represent the convictions of Cibolo Creek Bible Church regarding theological truths of Scripture. They reflect the heart of our teaching at Cibolo Creek Bible Church .

God

We believe in one God who has eternally existed as one essence in three persons–-the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit--and these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections, and worthy of precisely the same homage, confidence, and obedience.

References: Genesis 1:2; Exodus 3:14; Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:18-19;

Mark 12:29-30John 1:1; John 1:14; John 8:58; John 10:38; Acts 5:3-4; II Corinthians 13:14Hebrews 1:1-3; and Revelation 1:4-6.

 

God, The Father

God as the Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and directs the flow of human history according to the purposes of His will. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, and all-wise. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. He is the first person within the trinity co-equal with Jesus Christ, and with the Holy Spirit.

References: Genesis 1:1Genesis 2:7I Chronicles 29:10Psalm 19:1Isaiah 43:3Isaiah 43:15;

Isaiah 64:8Mark 1:9-11John 4:24John 5:26John 14:6-14John 17:1-8Acts 1:7Romans 8:14-15; and Ephesians 4:6.

 
 

God, The Son

We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, his substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and in His visible return to Earth. He is the second person within the trinity co-equal with the Father and with the Holy Spirit.

God, The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, for understanding spiritual truth, and for guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. He is the third person of the Trinity, co-equal with the Father and with Jesus Christ.

The Bible 

The Bible is God’s Word to us. We believe that the books of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error and the infallible rule of faith and practice. The Word of God is the foundation upon which this church operates and it is the basis from which this church is governed. 

References: Nehemiah 8:8; Psalm 12:6; Psalm 119:105;  Proverbs 2:1-22; Proverbs 30:5; Isaiah 28:13;

John 17:17; II Timothy 3:16-7Hebrews 4:12; I Peter 1:23-5; II Peter 1:3-4; II Peter 1:21; and II Peter 2:1

 

 

People

People are made in the spiritual image of God and are to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Due to the fall of man, man fell into complete spiritual death, totally depraved, and unable to reconcile himself to God. All men inherit the nature of sin at birth; and, must be made alive through regeneration by the spirit of God, in order to have a relationship with God.

References: Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Isaiah 59:1-2; Romans 3:23; Eph. 2:1-22; John 10:29; Hebrews 7:25; Hebrews 10:10; Hebrews 10:14; and I Peter 1:3-5.

 

Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift of grace to us. Jesus is the propitiation that fully and completely satisfies God's wrath full. We can never make up for our sin by self-‐improvement or by good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our sin and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. We are saved from hell to be with Jesus forever in Heaven.

References: John 1:12; John 14:6; Romans 5:1-2; Romans 6:23; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-9;

Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:3-4; John 10:29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; and Hebrews 10:10, 14.

Baptism

Baptism is immersing a willing Christian under water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience that identifies a person with Jesus Christ.

References: Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 1:9, Acts 8:36-39; and Acts 18:8.

Eternal Security of the Believer

Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and power of God that gives us this security. Salvation is a gift based on the work of Jesus Christ, not our own.

References: John 10:27-29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; Hebrews 10:10; Hebrews 10: 14; and

I Peter 1:3-5.

Spiritual Gifts

Spiritual gifts are given to each believer by the Holy Spirit. These gifts always glorify Jesus and build up the church. 

References: Acts 2:1-4; Romans 12:6-8; I Corinthians 12: 8-11; and Ephesians 4:11-12.

Marriage

God created marriage. It's a covenant made between a man and a woman that makes them one. The marriage covenant requires the married parties to be faithful, loving, and helpful to each other as long as they both shall live. Christians are not to be unequally yoked. Those whom God has directed to be joined together shall, after counseling with the pastor concerning what God requires of them, be joined in Christian marriage.

References: Genesis 2:22; Genesis 2:24; Malachi 2:13-16; Proverbs 30:10-31; Matthew 5:32;

Matthew 19:5-6, 9; Mark 10:3-10; Romans 7:2-3; I Corinthians 7:10-11, 15;  II Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 5:22-23; Ephesians 5:25-29; Ephesians 5:31-33; Colossians 3:19; and I Peter 1:3-5
