Our Core Beliefs at ACOC


We believe:

  • Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (I Corinthians 15:1-8)
  • The Bible is the inspired word of God–a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. (II Timothy 3:16)
  • Every person has worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fall short of His glory. (Romans 3:23)
  • Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord. (John 3:16)
  • Those accepting Christ should repent of their sins, confess their faith and be baptized unto Him. (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38)
  • The church is the body of Christ on earth empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to love all people and reach out with the message of Christ. (Luke 10:25-37; Ephesians 4:1-16)
  • The church should meet together regularly to worship God, remember Christ’s sacrifice, study His word and encourage one another. (Acts 2:46-47, I Corinthians 11:23-30; Hebrews 10:25)
  • Jesus Christ will one day call His children home where we will live with The Lord eternally. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18)
