The following are the core beliefs of City of Refuge Ministries. Our beliefs are based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God given to all people in order to bring us into the knowledge of God and Salvation through Christ Jesus. According to 2 Timothy 3:16, we believe all scriptures are inspired by God and profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and for instruction in righteousness.
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit who is essential to one living a powerful life in Christ.
Love & Transformation
We believe that everyone should be loved, everyone can rise, and anyone can be transformed. We believe in building families, building community, and building the broken. Our assignment is to be a refuge.
