At Brevard Community we believe true joy begins when we realize how much the Creator of the universe loves us and desires an intimate relationship with us. We believe in the Bible. It contains, the words from God, written by man through God's inspiration.
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He died for our sins, rose from the dead and will return again, as predicted, to claim each of us who have a personal relationship with Him.
We believe that we can have forgiveness of our imperfection, called sin, and eternal life by personally acknowledging Jesus as our Lord and Forgiver.
We believe the Bible contains all the guidelines needed for fulfillment and integrity. It gives us direction for dating, marriage and raising children. It gives hope and shows us how to live a life of joy and purpose.
We believe... in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect, all-knowing, and eternally existing in three persons -- God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1; Genesis 26-27; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14.
We are all made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God's creation. Although mankind has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called ""sin."" This attitude separates us from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2.
We are all created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called Hell. Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God.
John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15 (Hell); Matthew 25:41; Revelation 21:27 (Heaven).
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is coequal with the Father. He came to earth born of the virgin Mary and though fully man was fully God at the same time. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; John 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13.
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1.
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in the salvation for eternity. Salvation is not maintained by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, Hebrews 10:10, Hebrews 14; I Peter 1:3-5.
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make mankind aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1
The Bible is God's word to all mankind. It was written by human authors who were under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160; Psalm 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
