At Greeneway Church, we keep it simple, we strive to do two things VERY well; Know God and Show God!
As a Church, we concentrate upon the basics of our faith in Christ that unite us as believers. The basics we believe include:
God the Father
There is one true God who is the creator and the ruler of the universe. He exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal with God and are one God.
(Genesis 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14)
God the Son
Jesus Christ is the Son of God and was born of a virgin. He lived a perfect, sinless human life. He offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days, ascended into heaven, and will return again someday to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
(Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4, Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of Salvation. He provides the believer with power for living, understanding spiritual truth, wisdom, and guidance for doing what is right. As Christians, we are to seek to live under his control daily. We actively seek the gifts of the spirit and believe he intends for believers to be actively living out their role within the church.
(II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18; Acts 2:4)
The Bible is God’s guidance to us and was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for all Christian beliefs and living.
(II Timothy 1:13, 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105; 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sins by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting Jesus Christ as God’s offer for forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we, in faith, turn from our self-willed life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are then saved.
(Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)
The soul of every human being was created to live forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through salvation and forgiveness. Hell is eternal separation from God. Heaven is eternal union with God. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
(John 3:16; 2:25, 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 1:8; 2:44-46)
