What We Believe

The Mechanicsville Church of Christ believes:

  • We believe in one God, existing in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; equal in power and respect; eternal in nature, omnipresent; omniscient: omnipotent; having the same attributes, character, and perfection. (Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:18-19, and John 1:1-2,14,18.)

  • We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; who, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, became man. He physically died on a cross; was literally resurrected on the third day to redeem sinful man; and is now exalted at the right hand of God, as our High Priest, Representative, Intercessor and Advocate. (Matthew 16:16, Mark 16: 19, Luke 1:35, John 3:16, Romans 4:25, 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 and Hebrews 7:25, 9:24.)

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Comforter to Christians, the indwelling presence of God, and convicts all of sin, righteousness, and judgment. (John 16.7-11 and Romans 8:26-27.)

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16-17 and II Peter 1:20-21.)

  • We believe that salvation is by the grace of God, from the work of the Holy Spirit and through the mode of immersion. (Galatians 3:27 and Ephesians 2:8.)

  • We believe that the Church is founded on the fact that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, it is the body of all believers with the purpose of preaching, teaching, and baptizing the world, whose head is Christ. (Matthew 16:18. Ephesians 1:22.)

  • We believe in the person and work of Satan, who is the enemy of God; the father of those who are against God. (John 8:44, I Peter 5:8, and I John 3:8.)

  • We believe that we are living in the Last Days; that Jesus will personally return to the earth to take His own. (Acts 1:11 and John 14:2-3.)
