What we believe
South Lincs Church is a Pentecostal church and here you will find a summary of the main things that we believe.
The Bible: We believe the Bible (the Old and New Testaments) is the inspired Word of God and is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
God: We believe in one God who is the Creator and Ruler of the universe who has revealed Himself in three persons – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – what we refer to as the Trinity.
Jesus: We believe in the virgin birth, sinless life and miraculous ministry of Jesus Christ. We believe that He willingly sacrificed Himself on the Cross for the sins of mankind and that He rose again, has ascended back to Heaven and will one day return.
Man: We believe that mankind is created in the image of God and was created pure and upright. Mankind fell through disobedience to God, known as sin, which separated man from God.
Salvation: Salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ and in His death on the cross. Through faith in Jesus we can be forgiven of our sin and our relationship with God can be restored. It is a gift of God and is not earned through good works.
Christian Life: We believe that the Christian faith is not a ‘one off’ or a once a week act of going to church but a 24/7 lifestyle that affects every aspect of who we are. Part of living the Christian life includes being baptised in water, participating in communion and being an active member of a local church.
The Holy Spirit: We believe in two levels of experience of the person of Holy Spirit. Firstly, the Holy Spirit makes us aware of our need for Jesus Christ and lives in every believer. The second level of experience is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit where He provides believers with empowerment for service and guidance for life.
Eternity: Man will live forever, either separate from or in union with God. To live forever in union with God is Heaven and to be eternally separated from God is Hell.
