The Bible

The Bible is inspired by God and is the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. 
2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12; John 20:31. 

God

There is One God eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  
Matthew 3:l6-17; 28:19; Luke 1:35; 1 John 5:7; 2 Corinthians 13:14 

Jesus Christ 

Jesus Christ is God

John 1:1-2, 14; came in the flesh through the virgin birth, Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; lived a sinless life, Hebrews 4:15; performed miracles, John 2:1, Luke 1:1-4; died for the sins of the world, Romans 3:23-2; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Colos­sians 1:14; 1 John 1:7; Hebrews 10:19; bodily rose from the dead, Matthew 28:6; Romans 1:4, 8:1; 1 Corinthians 15; ascended to Heaven and intercedes for us with the Father, Luke 24:50-51; 1 John 2:1-2; Hebrews 7:25; will return in power and glory to judge all crea­tion and to establish an eternal kingdom. Acts 1:11; Titus 2:13; Revelation 1:7, 11:15; Philippians 2:9-11 

Our Need for Salvation through Jesus Christ 

We believe that, in Adam’s sin of disobedience to the revealed will and word of God, he incurred the penalty of spiritual and physical death, became subject to the wrath of God, became inherently corrupt, and utterly incapable of choosing or doing that which is acceptable to God, apart from Divine grace 

Genesis 2:17; Romans 5:12-19; Ephesians 2:1-3, 4:18-19, 6:10-19; Mark 7:20-23; Revelation 12:9; 1 Peter 5:3 

Becoming a Christian-How, and the Benefits 

The sole condition for receiving everlasting life is faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died a substitutionary death on the cross for humanity’s sin and rose bodily from the dead.  All who believe are assured that their sins are forgiven, 

Colossians 1:14; 2:13-15; the believer becomes a child of God, John 1:12; a new life with Christ begins, 2 Corinthians 5:17; John 10:10; and eternity in Heaven is assured. John 11:25-25, 17:3; 2 Corinthians 5:1-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Salvation is a gift from God. Ephesians 2:8-10 

God. The Holy Spirit 

The Holy Spirit indwells the Christian and is actively ministering in the world today enabling and empowering the living of a life pleasing to God; He gives gifts to every believer for building up the Body of Christ (the Church). 

Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 12:1-14; Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 5:18; Romans 12:1-8; 1 Peter 4: 1-10. 

The Eternal Future 

All people will be resurrected, the Christian to everlasting life in Heaven and eternal rewards; the non-Christian to everlasting death in Hell and eternal punishment. 

John 5:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23; Revelation 20:11-15 

The Body of Christ-The Church 

There is spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ; many churches but one Lord, 

Ephesians 4:4. The Church is made up of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ, and is to give praise to God, build up believers, and proclaim the Gospel. Matthew 16:16-18, 28:19-20; Acts 2:42-47; Acts 1:8; 1 Peter 2:9-10

Marriage

Marriage is a public observance to be celebrated. Because God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between a man, a woman, and Himself, ACC will only recognize marriages between a biological man and a biological woman. Further, the pastors and staff of ACC shall only participate in weddings and solemnize marriages between one man and one woman. Finally, facilities and property of ACC shall only host weddings that are between one man and one woman.

Gen. 1:27-28; Mark 10:2-12; Ephesians 5:21-33; Hebrews 13:4; Jude 1:7
