Bowie Church of Christ
What We Believe
There is one God in heaven who created all things, and who is revealed as the Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1, John 1:1-18).

The Bible is God’s inspired word and the standard for our faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16-17,
John 12:48).

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, whose death and resurrection conquered death, brought the
forgiveness of sins, and by this grace we can be saved. (I Corinthians 15:1-8, Romans 3:21-26).

The Bible teaches that a person receives God’s saving grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of
sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed or baptized into Christ. (Acts 2:36-41, Romans 10:9-10,
Romans 6:1-7).

The Holy Spirit dwells in each believer as a result of their obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
(Acts 5:32, Acts 2:38)

The Church is the body of Christ, a community of believers who represent Him in word and deed. In
this we will encourage one another and bring many disciples to Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20,
Ephesians 1:22-23).

We believe Christians demonstrate unity and love for one another as a testimony of our love for
God. (John 13:34-35, John 17:20-21).

We believe the Bible demonstrates that women and men play significant roles in the building up the
Church and in bringing people to Christ. (Galatians 3:28, Romans 16:1-4)
