Excelsior Church statement of Beliefs

We're stronger because we believe

Statement of beliefs

  • We believe in one God: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

  • We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary (meaning "full" or "complete") inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living

  • We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil

  • We believe that the finally impenitent (those not feeling regret or guilt and therefore do not repent for their sins) are hopelessly and eternally lost

  • We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race, and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin

  • We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth and also to the entire sanctification of believers

  • We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, the final judgment will take place, and the alive in Christ will live in heaven together in joyful eternity
