Beliefs

In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity. // Augustine

These basic doctrines represent what Elevate Life Church believes to be essential elements of biblical teaching. We believe that the Church should be united around these essential beliefs. We seek to not allow non-essentials to be divisive. We celebrate the freedom and differences of perspective on all non-essentials within the Church.

1

God

We believe that God created all things out of nothing and He is one in essence and three in person (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). We believe that God reveals himself to the world through Jesus Christ, Scripture and natural creation.
2

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God – fully human and fully divine. He died for the sins of humanity and was raised from the dead so that we could no longer be separated from God.
3

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts humanity of sin. When we decide to follow Jesus, the Holy Spirit leads us, guides us and helps us live like Jesus.
4

Humanity and Sin

We believe that all human beings are made in the image of God and have the capacity for good. Every part of every person is corrupted by sin. Our sin separates us from God and is the cause of much of our difficulty.
5

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
6

The Church

We believe that the gathering of Jesus followers (the Church) is sent into the world to shine to preach the Gospel, live like Jesus and love all people.

Social Justice, Critical Theory, Critical Race Theory and Gender/Sexuality

In 2021, at the conclusion of our series “The Elephant in the Room” we published the Elephant Statement. It represents our best attempt to apply these essentials to current cultural movements.
