Our Beliefs
At Revive Church we believe in these essential doctrines


The Trinity

We believe in one God who is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three distinct Persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and yet are one God. Genesis 1:1, 1:26-27; 3:22; Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. He became man, was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary without ceasing to be God. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of all mankind by dying on the cross. He arose again bodily from the dead on the third day, demonstrating His power over sin and death. Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-31; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. From the moment a person believes in Jesus, they are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, baptized into the body of Christ and He regenerates them to new life. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and conviction of sin. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily and He is present to continually fill His people. 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings. The Bible is profitable for teaching, correction and training, and is the ultimate source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160; Proverbs 30:5


We believe that man was originally created innocent and in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. Man sinned which brought physical and spiritual death upon all people. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This sin causes separation between God and Man. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2 We believe that God created mankind in His image and assigned gender to His people, male and female. He created them biologically different but with equal dignity and value. God also ordained marriage to be between one man and one woman. Genesis 1:26-28; Matthew 19:4-9; Ephesians 5:31-33


We believe that salvation is a gift from God to man through personal faith in Jesus Christ. Man can never make up for his sin by good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ for God’s offer of eternal life can a man be saved. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation and that no one can be saved apart from a personal belief in Jesus Christ as their Savior. Eternal life begins the moment one believes in Jesus Christ by faith. Once saved, believers are secure in salvation for eternity. The believer’s salvation is maintained by God’s grace and not by the believer’s efforts. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1; John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10; 1 Peter 1:3-5  


Water baptism by immersion symbolizes the believer’s identification with Jesus in His death, burial, and resurrection and is a public declaration that he has believed in Jesus Christ as his Savior. Water baptism is not necessary for eternal salvation, but it is an outward expression of the believer’s new inward of having died to sin, and being made alive to righteousness in Christ. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ. Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2:8-9; Matthew 28:19-20


Communion is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ in order to remember His costly sacrifice on our behalf which ratified the New Covenant. Communion is to be shared often in remembrance of Jesus’ death for the sins of mankind. The elements of bread and wine are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation, rather it is a witness to the believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross. Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
