This is what the Rio Canario church of Christ Believes:
1. We Believe that God is the creator and sustainer of this universe. He created humanity in His own image and likeness to adore him by doing what He says (Gen 1:26, 27, Ecc. 12:13).
2. We Believe that the Bible is God’s inspired word. He revealed it by the Holy Spirit to guide all men in the path of righteousness (2Tim 3:16-17, 1Thes. 2:13, 2Peter 1:20-21). Hence, it is profitable for doctrine, for reprove for correction for instruction in all matters of faith.
3. We Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, and died to redeem humanity from sin. He rose on the third day from the dead and was received up into heaven, where He sits at the right hand of the throne of God, reigning as King and Priest (John 20:30,31, 1Tim 3:16, Acts. 2:32, Heb. 7:24-25). Yes, we also believe that one day He is coming back to the earth to claim his own, then time will be no more! John 14:1-6.
4) We believe that salvation is by faith in Jesus: faith in his deity, death, burial and resurrection (1Cor. 15:1-5). The kind that encourages obedience to Christ's will (Heb. 5:8,9)-- the trust that leads sinners to repentance, confession and baptism for the forgiveness of sin (Eph 2:8, Rom 1:16,17;10:10, Acts 2:38).
5. We believe that all true believers are added to one body upon obeying Christ. That body is His church, which He built in the first century (Mat 16:18). True believers are united in that one body (Acts. 2:41-47, 1Cor. 12:12,13, Eph 4:4-5;1:22,23).
6. We believe that the church is a light to lost men; it must shine by proclaiming the gospel of Christ in the world (Eph 3:10, Mat 28:19; 5:16, 1Peter 2:12, 1Tim 4:16).
7. Finally, we believe that the New Testament of the Bible is the Only authority for Christian worship (John 4:24, 2Cor. 3:6-17, Heb. 8:6-13).
Please, let's follow the guidance of scripture (Mat 15:9).
