What We Believe

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

Our Statement of Faith

The following are the core beliefs of East Main Street Christian 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.


The God revealed in Scripture is the only God, existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
 God is eternal, unchanging, all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere present.
God created the heavens and earth, and all the things visible and invisible.
God is both the Creator and Sustainer of all reality.


Jesus is the Son of God who became flesh through His miraculous conception of the Holy Spirit and birth from a virgin.
He lived a sin-free life and willingly accepted His death on a cross to pay the price for the sin of the world.
After three days in a grave, Jesus rose to life, had interaction with many witnesses before He ascended into heaven,
and now is with God the Father in heaven. Jesus is the only Savior and mediator between God and man,
and apart from Him there is no salvation. Jesus will return to earth one day.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is given to all who trust in the name and work of Jesus Christ.
He draws unbelievers to faith in Jesus Christ and enables believers to grow in Christ-like character.
Gifts of the Holy Spirit empower believers for service to Christ.


We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings,
complete as the revelation of God's will for salvation, and supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe that Scripture in its entirety originated with God and that it was given through the pens of chosen men.
Therefore scripture both speaks with the authority of God and reflects the background,
styles and vocabularies of the human authors.

Image of God

Human beings are created in the image of God. Original sin by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3)
as well as personal sin alienated all of humanity from God. All humans need to trust in the sacrifice
of Jesus for salvation and receive regenerating and renewal by the Holy Spirit. A response
to the gospel includes faith, repentance, and baptism. 


We practice baptism by immersion as taught in Scripture. If people come from other faith traditions and have been
baptized by other methods, we recognize their baptism as valid and do not require them
to be re-baptized by immersion. 

Command of Christ

The command of Christ to the church is to proclaim the gospel throughout the world and make disciples
of all people groups, baptize believers, and teach the commandments of Jesus.
This is the call of every believer as well as each local church.
