WHAT WE BELIEVE AT TRC

Bible

We believe the Bible to be completely true and authoritative in all areas of faith, practice, and life.

  • John 17:17 | 2 Timothy 3:16 | 2 Peter 1:20-21

Salvation

We believe that all who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their LORD and Savior will receive forgiveness of sins and the free gift of eternal life.

  • John 3:16, 6:35-40, 10:27-30 | Roman 8:28-39 | Philippians 1:6 | 2 Timothy 2:13 | 1 Peter 1:3-9 | 1 John 5:11-13

The Church

We believe the church is the body of Christ, of which He is the head. The church serves to continue the work of Jesus on earth, seeking to build the Kingdom of God and point all people to the Father.

  • Matthew 28:18-20 | Romans 12:3-8 | 1 Corinthians 12 | Ephesians 4:1-16, 5:23b

Baptism

We believe that baptism is a public act reserved for those who profess to follow Christ. While having no impact on salvation, we believe it to be the first act of obedience for new followers. We practice baptism by immersion, following the example of our LORD Jesus. 

  • Matthew 3:13-17, 28:18-20 | Acts 8:34-38 | Romans 6:3-4

The LORD's Supper

We believe in honoring the remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice by participating in communion, or the LORD's Supper. The act of participating in the LORD's Supper is a solemn thing, not to be taken lightly or to be experienced by a non-follower of Jesus

  • Luke 22:14-23 | 1 Corinthians 11:23-33

Discipleship

We believe that Christians should develop in their faith and be committed to a life of personal devotion to God. Commitment is expressed through corporate and private worship, finding meaningful service in ministry, giving financially in a God-honoring way, and introducing others to a personal relationship with God.

  • 2 Corinthians 9:7 | Acts 2:42-47 | Romans 12:4-8 | Matthew 5:16, 28:19-20
