Get To Know Our Beliefs

At Shoal Creek We Believe… 

1. In one God with three distinct persons, God the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. We believe God is the supreme Creator of everything in the universe.

2. Jesus was born from a virgin mother, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, returned from the grave, and will return to earth once again.

3. Eternal life is a gift from God that cannot be earned no matter what and that gift can only come through a trusting relationship with Jesus.

4. To love Jesus is to obey Him with honesty, with respect, and without compromise.

5. Those who follow Jesus will feel an inner spiritual transformation as the Holy Spirit comforts, guides, and even confronts them.

6. The Bible is the word of God and being the word of God, it is our trustworthy final authority. We use it as our guide to find God’s heart and become like Jesus.

7. The church acts as the body of Jesus and should be an extension of His character. We should strive to accurately represent Jesus’ attitudes, behaviors, and mission in our world today.

8. All humans will stand before Jesus and receive a final judgment, those with a trusting relationship with Him will spend eternity in His presence, and those without will spend an eternity separated from Him.

9. According to God’s design and intent, sex difference (male and female) is an intrinsic part of human design, and the Christian view of marriage is between one man and one woman.
