What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

The following are some of the shared  beliefs of Northwest Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these Biblical doctrines.

Created

We are not a cosmic accident.
Everything and everyone has been
intentionally made by the Creator.

Bible

We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired
 and authoritative Word of God.

God

We believe in one God who eternally exists in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who, being fully God, became fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and was raised from the dead.

The Fall

We believe, "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace ...". (Romans 3:23-24)

Salvation

We believe that salvation from the penalty of death
is made possible only because Jesus Christ died
as a sin offering in our place.

Gift

We believe this salvation is offered as a gift to those
who believe in Jesus Christ.
Since it is a gift, it cannot be earned.

Grace

We believe true faith is expressed in repentance, confession, and embodied in baptism. Baptism is immersion in water
of a declared believer in Christ.

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit lives in the Christian.
He empowers us to live a life of holiness, as well as guides, comforts, and assists us in prayer.

The Church

We believe there is one church
which consists of all Christians. While denominations exist because of slight variations of theology, we believe that all believing Christians make up one church. 

Resurrection

We believe Jesus will personally come again with His angels and appear to all. The dead will be raised and all will stand before the throne of God to be judged for the life they have lived on this earth.

Lifestyle

We believe these convictions make a difference
in the way we should live. We don't keep living sinful lives because we know He will forgive us. We strive to follow
His lead and tell others Jesus' Good News of Salvation.
