About


MISSION


We exist to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Here at CIBOLOCREEK, we believe church is not a building, the services, or even the lessons - a church is people. Our real work is relationships. We help guide people into friendships with other people who may be asking the same questions, dealing with similar issues, or who are interested in shared experiences or discovering how our faith intersects with everyday life.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

THE BIBLE

The Bible is a written record of divine revelation through human authors who were directed by God to record accurately what He wanted us to know about Himself. The Bible is our authority and guide in faith and living.

See Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 
Psalm 119:160; John 16:12-13; 17:17

GOD

There is one true God, eternally co-existing as three perfect divine persons who share complete equality in their godly attributes. In keeping with the pattern of the Scriptures, we refer to the individuals of this Trinity as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

See Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 
1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14;  Hebrews 1:3

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is that divine person of the Trinity who willingly chose to become a man in order to offer himself as the sinless sacrifice and divine substitute for the sins of mankind.  Jesus resurrected from the dead to demonstrate His authority over sin and his ability to provide eternal life to those who would trust in Him.

See Matthew 1:18-25; Isaiah 7:14; John 1:1-14; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; Hebrews 7; 
1 Corinthians 15:3,4;  Acts 1:9-11;  1 Timothy 6:14,15;  Titus 2:13; Romans 3:24,25;
1 Peter 2:21-25

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is that divine person of the Trinity that assumes the most active role in accomplishing the spiritual growth of a Christ follower.  The Christian’s demonstration of Christ-like convictions, attitudes and actions is proof of the Spirit’s work in his/her life.

See 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; 
Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:22-23,25; Ephesians 5:18; 1 John 2:20-27; Romans 8:9

SALVATION
God’s greatest passion for humanity is to enjoy a loving relationship with every human being that He has created.  However, sin has jeopardized the relationship between man and God and left them alienated from each other.  But God’s love is so great that He accepts the death of Jesus Christ as the payment for the sins of each person who would recognize his/her need for salvation and trust in Christ as his/her Savior and Lord.

See Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:4-10;  John 14:6; 1:12; 3:16-36; 5:24; Titus 3:5;  
Galatians 3:26;  Romans 5:1,9,10; 8:1; Titus 3:4-7

HUMAN DESTINY

The Scriptures declare that all human beings will continue to live for an eternity following their time on this earth. According to the Scriptures, eternity includes the two realities of Heaven and Hell.  We believe Heaven will be inhabited to those who have been reconciled to God through a relationship with Jesus Christ as their Savior.  We believe that the souls of those who have not been reconciled to God through a relationship with Jesus Christ will live in Hell, separated from God, for all eternity.

See Luke 16:19-26; 23:43; John 3:16; John 14:1-7; Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15

THE CHURCH

The Church is a biblically functioning community of fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ who partner together in the work of ministry for the advance of God’s redemptive purposes throughout the world. While all believers are part of the universal Church, the physical reflection of their spiritual adoption into God’s family is manifested by their participation in a local church where encouragement and accountability are provided and the expressions of their spiritual gifts are shared.

See Matthew 28:19,20;  Acts 2:42-47; 4:32-34;  Romans 12:1-16; 1 Corinthians 12:1-27; 
Ephesians 4:1-16;  Colossians 3:12-17

THE CHRISTIAN LIFE

The moment that a person places his/her faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, he/she receives a spiritual capacity for obedience to the will of God as described in the Scriptures.  As a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Christian begins a journey of spiritual growth intended to reflect to others the attitudes, values, priorities and actions of Jesus Christ.   Spiritual maturity, then, is most accurately demonstrated in a Christ-like character and conduct in the life of a Christian. However, recognizing that the Christian life is a journey, it is ever-present progress toward Christ-like maturity that the Christian should expect rather than perfection.

See 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 1 Timothy 4:7-8; 1 John; 2 Peter 1:3-10; 
1 Peter 1:13-16;  2:1,2; The Book of James; Colossians 3; Ephesians 4:17-5:21; 
Philippians 2:1-18; 3:7-16; Romans 13:14; 12:1-21; John 15:1-17
