Welcome to North Raleigh Christian Church!  We are a non-denominational church located in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Our mission is to help people find their purpose through following Jesus. We strive to love and reach people through this ministry, who then can experience the life change that only God and the Gospel can bring.  
WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE BIBLE  

The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is without any error, completely relevant to daily life. 

 

Deuteronomy 4:1-2 | Psalms 119:11, 89, 105 | Isaiah 40:8  Matthew 22:29 John 5:39;16:13-15; & 17:17 | Romans 15:4 | 2 Timothy 3:15-17 | Hebrews 1:1-2 & 4:12 | 1 Peter 1:25 | 2  Peter 3:16 

 

GOD

God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority. 

 

Deuteronomy 6:4 | Isaiah 61:1 | Matthew 28:19 | Mark 1:9-11 | Luke 1:35 | John 5:21-23; 14:10,16 Romans 8:9-11 | 1 Corinthians 8:6 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 | Hebrews 1:8-10 | James 2:19 

 

THE FATHER

God the Father is one of the Trinity, in perfect harmony with the Son and the Spirit. The Father is divine; He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. It is by Him that we exist. God the Father is personal; He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises. 

 

Exodus 3:14 | Numbers 23:19 | Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2 | Psalm 11:4-6 

Malachi 3:6 | John  3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1 | Acts 17:28 | Romans 3:3-4 

THE SON

Jesus Christ is one of the Trinity, in perfect harmony with the Father and the Spirit as the Father’s Son. He was completely human, but at the same time completely God. He is the only plan for  bringing people who are enemies of God back into a restored relationship with God. Jesus was born of a virgin and lived a perfect life so that He could be a substitute for us in satisfying the Father’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so we could have life. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father in Heaven. And one day, He will return to earth to set all things right. 

 

Isaiah 7:14, 53 | Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6 | Luke 22:70; 24:46-47  | John 1:1, 14; 10:30, 11:25-27; 17:1-5 Acts 1:9, 2:22-24; 7:55-56  | Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4 | 1 Corinthians 8:6 | 2 Corinthians 5:19-21 | Galatians 4:4-5 | Philippians 2:5-11 |  Colossians 1:15; 2:9 | 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is one of the Trinity and in perfect harmony with the Father and the Son. His presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and  exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, He indwells the believer, and convicts of the coming judgment. The Holy Spirit comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and conforms us to be more like Christ, who was our perfect example. 

 

Genesis 1:2 | Psalms 51:11; 139:7 ff. | Isaiah 61:1-3 Joel 2:28-32  | Mark 1:10 Luke 1:35; 4:1;  11:13; 12:12 | John 15:26; 16:7-14  | Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 2:37-38, 13:2 Romans 8:9-11, 14-16,  26-27 | 1 Corinthians 3:16  | Ephesians 1:13-14 | 2 Peter 1:21 | Revelation 22:17 

ETERNITY 

Humans were created to exist forever, and they exist either in separation from God or in union with God. Humans will only have eternal union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. In contrast, to be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. 

John 3:16, 36 | Romans 6:23 | 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13 | Revelation 20:15 

HUMANKIND

Every person is made in the image of God. Humanity was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, a person cannot attain a right relationship with God through his or her own effort. Every human is uniquely created, possessing gifts and dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love. 

Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3 | Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5 | Isaiah 6:5 | Jeremiah 17:5 |Acts  17:26-31 | Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25  | 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19,  21-22 | Ephesians | 2 Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11 

 

SALVATION

Salvation is God’s plan of rescue from sin and death, available to each and every person. The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation cannot be earned through humanity’s own efforts, it is a gift of God’s grace. Those who have come to faith in Jesus, according to Scripture, are expected to Confess, Repent, be Baptized, and Live a new, holy life. 

 

Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7 | Matthew 1:21; 27:22-28:6 | Mark 16:16 I Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32

John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24 | Acts 2:21; 2:37-38, 4:12; 16:30-31 | Romans 1:16-18;3:23-25;  5:8-10; 6; 10:9-10 | 1 Corinthians 1:18 | 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 | Galatians 2:20; 3:13, 26-27 | Ephesians 2:8-10, 4:20-24 | Philippians 2:12-13 | Hebrews 9:24-28 | Revelation 3:20 

 

THE CHURCH

The Church is the bride of Christ. It is both worldwide and local. The local church is a community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. They are committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, seeking to bring the Gospel to their community and the world. Furthermore, The whole Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
