What We Believe at Chapel by the Sea
We believe in a God of Love. Through God's power, a universe was created and continues to change and evolve.
Through God's unconditional and selfless love, humanity was created. We believe in Jesus Christ, who is the incarnation of God.
By the Holy Spirit, Christ was conceived and born into this world. By human hands, Christ suffered and was killed. By the plan of God, Christ has risen! We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who comforts us in our distress,
Who empowers us in our calling, Who leads us through all life. We believe the Scripture is a witness to the Word of God, who is Jesus Christ (John 1).
The Bible is a library of books, poems and hymns written through many people and over many years
and inspired by God for our teaching and training. We believe faith and spirituality is best nurtured through a community. In a church we nurture, comfort and encourage one another. We believe in the concept of sin that separates us from the love of God, but more powerful than sin is the Grace of God that comes to us through Jesus Christ. Through Christ we can be made spiritually whole and healthy and live a life in which
nothing can separate us from the love of God. We believe in the purpose of life: To glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. We are called to love, worship, serve, and study God. We are called to love, accept, encourage, assist, and teach others.
