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.
