What We Believe Our Statement of Faith

  • Our Connecting Point +

    Church in the Round is part of an association of churches known as the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA). While we are autonomous in our structures and leadership, as part of the EFCA, Church in the Round is in agreement with the 10 points of the EFCA statement of faith listed here.

  • God +

    We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.

  • The Bible +

    We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.

  • The Human Condition +

    We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.

  • Jesus Christ +

    We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus-Israel’s promised Messiah-was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.

  • The Work of Christ +

    We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation.

  • The Holy Spirit +

    We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.

  • The Church +

    We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. The true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which visibly and tangibly express the gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer.

  • Christian Living +

    We believe that God’s justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the oppressed. With God’s Word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.

  • Christ's Return +

    We believe in the personal, bodily and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.

  • Response and Eternal Destiny +

    We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. Amen.

Church Features Main features of Church in the Round...

For Everyone

Just like the everlasting love of God, Church in the Round is for everyone. You will never be singled out because of some label that someone has put on you. Come as you are, but, be willing to experience the life changing, powerful message of Jesus Christ when you come.

Ancient

Church in the Round has an ancient appeal. We embrace the worship theology of the early Christian church (1st through 4th century). We use this theological orientation to inform our corporate worship practices. We embrace God's cosmic story of creation-fall-incarnation-recreation. You will experience weekly communion, baptism, and affirmation of the Nicene creed.

Future

Church in the Round is future-thinking. We embrace concepts that are driving the church (at large) forward in our day. Technology is a key part of Church in the Round. We believe media can help you experience the continuing story of God. You will explore solid, biblical messages through video, audio, the arts, and our custom mobile application which drives the community life of the church. Church in the Round has a presence on the important social media networks that you already use to communicate everyday.
