Statement of Faith

The following is a representative of the fundamental statement of faith from the members of SCCC; it is not exhaustive in its content.

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit of God inspired the Bible in its original writing and that it is without error.
  • We also believe it is the sole authority in all matters of faith and practice for the Church.
  • We believe there is one true God, Who exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-eternal and co-equal from all eternity, each with distinct personalities but one essence.
  • We believe that Adam was created without sin but fell by disobedience. As a result, the entire human race fell and became sinful by nature, is spiritually dead, and lost.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, co-existent with the Father and the Holy Spirit, and that he came to the world, born of a virgin, and shed His blood on Calvary as an atonement of all sin. He was buried and rose again bodily, He ascended to the right hand of the Father.
  • We believe in the personal work of the Holy Spirit, which includes conviction of sin, regeneration of sinners, and indwelling all believers.
  • We believe that a soul is saved when Christ is accepted as personal Savior and Lord.
  • We believe in the second coming of the Lord, the bodily resurrection of the righteous dead, and an endless heaven for the redeemed and endless punishment for the lost, those that have rejected the offering of salvation.
