The following are the core beliefs of Compass Community Church which are based on God's unfailing Word. Every teaching and ministry of Compass is shaped by these truths.
In the authority of the Bible
In the Triune God
The Bible is the inspired word of God, therefore it cannot err, and is our final authority in faith and life.
God is eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In Jesus Christ
In the Virgin Birth
Jesus Christ is the incarnate Son of God, one in nature, substance, and power with God –He is God Himself!
Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, given a human body, and yet was sinless in every way.
In the Substitutionary Sacrifice
In Bodily Resurrection
After living a perfect life, Jesus died in the place of those who will put their faith in Him alone for their Salvation.
Jesus Christ rose from the dead in the same body in which He was Crucified.
In The Ascension
In the Holy Spirit
Jesus Christ ascended back into heaven where He now sits at the right hand of God the Father, acting as our eternal and faithful High Priest.
The Holy Spirit is the 3rd member of the Trinity, who was sent by God, through Jesus Christ, to take up residence in the hearts of every believer. The Holy Spirit unites us with Jesus, and empowers us to live according to the character of Jesus.
In the Existence and Mitigated Power of Satan
In The Fall of Humanity
Satan is a created angelic being who rebelled against God and therefore fell. At present, Satan is our tempter, our adversary, and our accuser; but his destiny is eternal destruction.
All men and women were created in the image of God, and were meant to enjoy perfect relationship with Him. However, through willful disobedience, humanity has fallen from this perfect relationship, and is steeped in and mastered by sin. We are completely and totally unable to earn or merit the relationship with God we were created to enjoy.
Salvation is the gracious gift of God through Jesus Christ. Through faith in Jesus' perfect life, substitutionary sacrifice, and resurrection from the dead, we too may have and know eternal life. This eternal life makes us a new creation in Jesus, free from the destructive power of sin, and alive to the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
