Our Beliefs

Sanctuary is a Spirit-filled interdenominational church. What does that mean? We come from various Christian denominations, but we agree on a list of fundamental Christian truths that guard unity and help us complete God’s kingdom mission. Whether you are Baptist, Pentecostal, Assemblies of God, or never grew up in church, you are welcome here.

1. The Scriptures are Inspired

2. There is only one true God

3. Jesus is both God and man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, rose from the dead, sits at the right hand of God, and is soon returning.

4. Humanity is a fallen race in need of salvation

5. God’s plan of salvation is completed through the life, death, resurrection, and return of Jesus Christ.

6. The evidence of salvation is the sanctification of the believer by the Holy Spirit, both inwardly and outwardly.

7. The Baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit are available for all believers

8. God still performs miracles and divine healing today. 

9. Baptism in water and communion are commanded in Scripture as the ordinances of the church. 

10. The Church is comprised of every believer and divinely called leaders who are each called to preach the Gospel and make disciples. 

11. Marriage is an exclusive life-long relationship between a man and a woman and testifies to Christ’s love for His Church. The alternative is celibacy for the kingdom of heaven’s sake.

12. The dead will be resurrected and those that are alive will be raptured at the second coming of Christ. 

13. There will be a final judgment and those who are not found written in the Book of Life will be sentenced to everlasting punishment. 

14. There will be a new heaven and a new earth.
