What We Believe

Our core beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Good News Chapel based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

SCRIPTURE

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

GOD THE FATHER

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

GOD THE SON

Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.

MAN

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

THE CHURCH

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.

ORDINANCES

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

TITHES & OFFERINGS

We believe in the Tithe (the first ten percent of our income) that belongs to the Lord, offerings that are given willingly and alms that are given to the poor.  We are to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us, understanding that all we have comes from Him. We believe in being generous as God has been generous with us in all aspects of life.
DIVINE HEALING
Divine healing is an integral part of the Gospel.  In Jesus’ atoning work healing has been provided.  
Healing is a privilege available to all believers.
LAYING ON OF HANDS
We practice the laying on of hands for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, for ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons,
and for ministering to the sick.
LAST DAYS
There will be a personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishment of His kingdom. There will be the final judgment for those who rejected Christ and the eternal blessing of the righteous.
ETERNAL LIFE
There is a real place of paradise called heaven for all who have rejected sin and received Christ to spend eternity.  Conversely, there is a real place of eternal torment called hell for those who have rejected the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ
