CHRIST CHAPEL MINISTRIES

Built and Strengthened by God’s Word

What We Believe

At CHRIST CHAPEL MINISTRIES, we strive to deliver the good news of God’s promise to individuals and families in Sacramento, California. Below is our statement of belief, which summarizes the core teachings of the Bible.

The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Bible, containing the Scriptures of the Old Testament and the New Testament that are preserved for us in the Masoretic text (Old Testament) Textus Receptus (New Testament) and in the King James Bible, is verbally and plenarily inspired by God.


It is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, and altogether authentic, accurate and authoritative Word of God, therefore the supreme and final authority in all things (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21; Rev. 22:18-19).

The Trinity

We believe in one God (monotheism), eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—the Trinity. They are coeternal in being, co-identical in nature, coequal in power and glory, and have the same attributes and perfections (I John 5:7; Matt. 28:19; Deut. 6:4; II Cor. 13:14; John 14:10, 26).

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, that He was supernaturally begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is truly totally God and truly totally man (Matt 1:20-21; Luke 1:35-36; 2:10-11).


He is the only begotten Son of God (John 1:14; 3:16, 18; I John 4:9) and at the same time God the Son—therefore, the Lord Jesus Christ, sinless, omnipotent, omniscient, only Savior of sinners, King of kings, and Lord of lords.


We believe in the literal, physical, and bodily resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His literal, physical, bodily ascension into Heaven, and in His present work there as High Priest, Mediator, and Advocate for us (Heb. 9:24; 10:20-21; I Tim. 2:5-6; I John 2:1, 2).

The Holy Spirit

We believe that at the precise time of the new birth, the believer immediately receives the Holy Spirit and is baptized (placed) by Him into the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, Teacher, and Guide and if yielded to Him, is filled by the Spirit and is empowered for service (John 1:32-34; Acts 1:8; Acts 15:8; Rom. 6:13; 12:1-2; Eph. 5:18).

The Gospel

We believe the Gospel is the good news that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins; that He was buried and He arose alive and triumphant from the grave. In doing so, He made the necessary sacrifice for atonement, became the Substitute for our redemption, which thereby paid our sin debt and purchased our salvation for us; and that all who place their faith in full trust in Him are saved only by His shed blood (I Cor. 15:3-4; Col. 1:14; Eph. 1:7; Rom. 5:9; Acts 4:12).

Believer's Baptism

We believe each person claiming Christ as Savior should promptly make public his/her profession of Christ, and each new Christian should follow the Lord’s command for believer’s baptism. Such scriptural baptism is always by immersion (after salvation), that baptism does not save (the blood of Jesus Christ saves us) but it is the Lord’s prescribed way for us to identify ourselves with Him in open confession. Baptism is a symbolic representation, a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ (Matt. 10:32-33; 28:18-20; Luke 9:23; Acts 16:30-34; Rom. 10:9-10).

The Lord’s Supper

We believe that the Lord’s Supper is the commemoration of the death of Christ until His second coming in partaking of His body and blood in the Holy Eucharist and that it is to be preceded always by solemn self-examination (I Cor. 11:23-28).

Soul Winning

We believe that the command to get the Gospel (good news of Christ birth, death, resurrection and saving grace) to the world is a clear and unmistakable mandate to every believer. This command is therefore, the commission of God to all of us who are saved (Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; Rom. 10:13-15).

Eternity

We believe that each believer, at the time he puts his trust in Christ, is born into the family of God and does instantaneously become a son or daughter of the living God, thus is redeemed by the Lord’s purchase price paid for us by His precious blood. That is henceforth preserved in Christ and possesses everlasting, eternal life and is sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise for eternity (John 10:28-29; Romans 8:38-39; John 5:24; Ephesians 1:13).
