God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities; the father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
(Genesis 1:1, 26-‐27; Ephesians 4:14-‐16, Matthew 28:19; Phil. 2:5-‐11)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people 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 and will return to earth to reign.
(Matthew 1:22-‐23, Matthew 3:16-‐17; John 1:1-‐5, 14; Hebrews 4:14-‐15, 1 Corinthians 15:3-‐4, Romans 1:3-‐4)
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding and doing what is right.
(John 16:7-13; 1 Cor. 2:12; 1 Cor. 3:16; Ephesians 1:13)
The Bible is God’s Word to us and was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because, it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; John 17:17; Psalm)
Tithing & Offering
At The Champion Center, we practice tithing for the support of Christ’s body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is the Biblical standard of giving.
(Hebrews 7:1-10; Malachi 3:10-12)
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Every Christian has one or more spiritual gifts. Gifts may be given when we are born again, but may be undiscovered for a long period of time. Gifts were given for the benefit of the body, not the promotion of self.
(1 Corinthians 12:4-11)
