What we believe at JeffStreet about God, the Bible, and Humanity
We believe in one God, who exists in the perfect relationship of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
- The Father is the Creator of the universe and the lover of all people.
- Jesus is the fully divine Son of God. He humbled Himself to also become fully human. Through His death on the cross, he made peace between God and humanity. He rose from the dead and now reigns in heaven alongside the Father. He will return at the end of time, ushering in a perfect new creation.
- The Holy Spirit lives in those who follow Jesus. He is both a downpayment on our future hope and the one who heals our brokenness, leading us to become more like Jesus and giving us the power to be transformed.
The Bible is God's true story of how He works through broken people to bring us to Him, and how He reached into our world in the person of Jesus to buy us the right to live with Him forever.
All people need God: everyone is separated from God by sin and suffers from brokenness. God seeks to restore everyone through Jesus.
The Church is God’s worldwide family: all who obediently follow Jesus have become the children of God.
Baptism by immersion is our participation in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and an initial step in following Him.
Each Sunday, we share in the Lord’s Supper (or communion). This essential part of worship looks back to Jesus’ sacrifice, looks around at His healing work in and through His people, and looks forward to His return. All who follow Him are welcome to participate.
We believe in marriage as created by God: One man, one woman, one lifetime. Sex in that context is an amazing gift blessed by our Creator and Sustainer. Straying from that design and seeking sexual satisfaction outside of marriage dishonors God and harms human beings.
We also believe that we are created either male or female. We recognize that many struggle with their identity, including gender and sexuality. JeffStreet desires to be a community of hope and healing for all those who seek to find their identity in Jesus.
