Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:30-31)
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Mat 28:18-20)
At Ridgeview, we strive to KNOW Christ, to GROW in Christ, and to GO for Christ.
Come as you are! You'll be loved!
GOD: We believe in one God who is the creator and ruler of the universe, who has eternally existed in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
JESUS CHRIST: Jesus Christ is the Son of God, equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and 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 to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit, equal with the Father and Son as God, indwells believers when they repent and by faith ask Jesus to save them. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.
SCRIPTURE: The entire Bible is the inspired Word of God. People were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. The Bible, in its original form, language, and context, is without error. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
HUMAN NATURE: All people were created in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. Although people have tremendous potential for good, they are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” Sin separates us from God, so we are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts.
SALVATION: The death of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for sin and the gift of eternal life.
CHRISTIANS: All Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
CHURCH: The Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the Church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the world.
