LEarn About Elevated Faith

Our Beliefs

Examine our perspectives on the Bible, people, God, Jesus, and many other important components of our faith. The convictions of Elevated Faith, which are firmly grounded in Scripture, direct our decisions as a church.

The Bible

All people can find God's word in the Bible. It was authored by human authors with the help of the Holy Spirit's supernatural guidance. The Bible is truth without any admixture of error and is entirely applicable to our daily lives since it was inspired by God.


For all of eternity, God has been in a relationship with Himself. He is a single being who manifests as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Although the Trinity's three members perform distinct roles, they are all equally powerful and authoritative.

The Eternity

Man was made to last a lifetime. Either he will live in union with God through salvation and forgiveness, or he will live in eternal separation from God due to sin. Hell is to be cut off from God forever. Heaven is to live in eternal oneness with Him. Heaven and Hell are both eternal locations.


The only means of salvation and sin-forgiveness are made possible by the blood of Jesus Christ, which was shed on the cross. When a person believes that Christ's death and resurrection atoned for their sin on the cross, they are saved. Salvation is a gift from God, and we are unable to work our way to it.

The Church

The Church is a local congregation of baptized Christians bound together by their shared faith in Jesus. It is dedicated to following all of Christ's instructions and spreading the message of the gospel throughout the world. The Church collaborates in harmony and love with the goal of glorifying Christ as its ultimate goal.
