Many years ago, an early church council created a short statement of faith that summarizes the basic beliefs of Christianity. It is called The Apostles’ Creed . On occasion, most Christian churches recite this creed during their worship services as a reminder of the faith we hold in common with Christians around the world and throughout the centuries. It is this Creed that we hold as the core of our beliefs here at North Bay Community Church.
As a Christian Congregation, North Bay Community Church seeks to bring persons of all ages and Christian denominational traditons into continuing life changing experiences through the mind and spirit of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Church is God’s plan for, communicating the Gospel, maintaining Christian love, developing authentic fellowship, celebrating the Sacraments, and studying His Word.
We know it first of all because of Jesus’ character. His enemies constantly looked for something wrong in His life, but without success, for He alone was without sin. We know it also because of His power. He alone could cause a storm to cease or a dead child to come back to life, powers only God could have. We know it especially because of His resurrection, by which He conquered death and hell.
Yes, Jesus was the unique Son of God, but why is it important?
The reason is because only a divine Savior could save us from our sins, and He has, through His death on the cross for us.
The Gospels make it clear that Jesus was absolutely unique, and the reason is because He was the unique Son of God, sent from heaven to save us from our sins. Yes, He was fully human but He was also fully God. Centuries before He was born, the prophets predicted that “they will call him Immanuel, which means, ‘God with us’ (Matthew 1:23). Jesus Himself declared, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30). He also said, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9).
