Roots In Christ Ministries at a Glance
What we Believe
Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation and the eternal promise of heaven.
The Holy Bible as the inspired, inerrant Word of God that is the all-sufficient authority in all matters of faith, doctrine, and Christian living.
The Holy Trinity is our God, eternally existing in three persons as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The virgin birth of Jesus Christ in His deity, as He walked the earth as God in the flesh; died on the cross for our sins, rose bodily from the dead on the third day, and ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father.
Man was created in the image of God, fell into sin and was lost; However, rebirth through the Holy Spirit is essential for salvation and Godly living.
Eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works, and is possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
We believe that baptism is by immersion and the Lord's Supper is a memorial to His suffering and death on the cross and His return. These are ordinances to be observed by the church in the present age, but are not to be regarded as a means for man's salvation.
We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that the anticipation of His Second Coming inspires believers to live a fruitful life as we wait His return.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead where the saved will then spend eternity in heaven, and the unsaved will then spend eternity in hell.
We believe that God is the owner of all possessions on earth and has entrusted us to be good stewards to faithfully manage those possessions according to the principles in the bible.
We believe the principle of tithing (contributing a tenth of one’s income to God’s work) is a minimum guideline or starting point for Christian giving. For Christians whose limited income is only sufficient for subsistence, the tithe provides a goal to strive towards. For Christians whose income exceeds their needs, the tithe becomes restrictive and the giving of 10% of one’s income should be surpassed.
