What We Believe

Charis Christian Center Beliefs and Statement of Faith

Jesus is Lord

We believe that there is one true God and He has chosen to represent Himself in three persons, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. They are co-equal and co-eternal.

Jesus is The Son of God manifested in the flesh. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ and that all authority belongs to Him. Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Statement of Faith

The Bible is the Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct and doctrine. 2 Timothy 3:16.

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are eternally self-existent, and self revealed. Jesus Christ, who is God manifest in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:6, Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14.

Man was created innocent, but through Adam’s transgression, sin came upon all men. Jesus Christ came to pay the penalty of man’s sin through His shed blood, so that all men can be saved by faith in Him. Salvation is by grace through faith. Grace may be simply stated as God doing for man what he could not do for himself in the person of Jesus Christ. Faith may be simply stated as man’s positive response to God’s grace. Ephesians 2:8, Titus 3:5, Romans 3:23, 6:23, 10:8-10.

We believe in the present day outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Believers can and should be filled with the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in other tongues, and the Holy Spirit gives gifts to the church to be used in the present time. Acts 2:4,17.

We believe that divine healing is the right and privilege of every believer, and it was provided for the church in the atonement. Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17, 1 Peter 2:24.

We believe that every believer should be baptized in water following Christ’s example and in obedience to Christ’s command. Matthew 3:13-17, Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-16

We believe that Jesus Christ will return for His church as is recorded in the scripture. John 14:3, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 1 Corinthians 15:51-58.

We believe in heaven and hell. Heaven will be the eternal resting place for all believers after their death. All unbelievers (who do not repent and believe on Christ in this life) will eventually be cast into the lake of fire and spend eternity there. Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 20:11-15, 21:1-8.

"Jesus has changed my life and the primary way He has changed my life is through His Word."

Pastor Lawson Perdue

A Prayer for Salvation:

If you willingly confess Jesus as your Lord and believe it in your heart you will be saved (becoming a Christian)! To make it easy, you can use this prayer as an example:

“Heavenly Father we thank you for Jesus. I believe in Jesus. I believe He is the son of God. I believe He lived a sinless, holy, perfect, and pure life and that He died on the cross for my sin. I believe that God raised Him from the dead on the third day. Jesus, I believe that you are Lord and I will live for you as you give me the strength. In your name I pray, Amen!”

Romans 10:9, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit:

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God that is available to all Christians. You’ll receive boldness and power when you allow the very spirit of God to come and dwell in you with the evidence of speaking in tongues (groanings expressed as other languages of heaven and men).

You can receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit simply by asking God for it through faith. For example, “Lord Jesus, thank you for giving me your Holy Spirit. I receive your spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues!” When you receive it you have the ability to speak in your spiritual prayer language, tongues, and can use it when you want.

Acts 2:3-4, “Then there appeared to them b]”>[b]divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
