We believe . . .
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-8).

The Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Tim-othy 3:16)—”a lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105).

Every person has worth as a creation of God, but “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust and obey Christ as Savior and Lord (John 3:16).

We are saved by grace and through faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8, 9).

Those accepting Christ must repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into him (Romans 10:9 and Acts 2:38).

The church is the body of Christ on earth and exists to save the lost and edify the saved (Ephesians 4:1-16).

Jesus Christ will one day return to earth as King of kings and Lord of lords (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

Community is a nondenominational fellowship of believers who seek to follow Jesus Christ and be identified by his name only.

Community is a Bible-teaching church. We accept the Bible as God-inspired, without error, and the final authority on all matters it addresses.

Community believes that people matter to God and that true meaning and happiness in life is found only through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.



Central Christian Church, Wichita, KS

Joe Wright, senior pastor

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death on the cross, bodily resurrection, bodily ascension into Heaven, and his personal return once again in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. That salvation cannot be gained by human effort, but only through God’s grace in the redemption he provided in Jesus Christ, a redemption which is responded to by faith and which leads to a life devoted to obeying God.

We believe that repentant believers in Christ should be baptized in water, by immersion (the biblical form of baptism), in obedience to Christ.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe that, because all believers are spiritually united in the Lord Jesus Christ, we should cooperate in all possible ways in God’s work with our fellow believers, both those among us and elsewhere, loving and being patient with one another in our differences.

What We Believe…
Parkcrest Doctrinal Statement

We are an evangelical church committed to the authority of the Bible. Where the Bible speaks, we speak.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ—in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his atoning death through his shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in his personal return in power and glory.

We believe that God has a wonderful plan for your life, and that real living begins when you place your trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We are an independent, nondenominational church. People from all backgrounds are welcome.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. In matters of doctrine, unity; in matters of opinion, liberty; in all things, love.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divinely preserved “lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16;
2 Peter 1:20, 21).

Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, and he died for our sins and arose from the dead (John 1:1-14; Philippians 2:5-8;

1 Corinthians 15:1-8).

Every person has worth as a creation of God, but “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord (1 John 5:1-6).

Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into him. (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38).

Salvation with its forgiveness, its imparting of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life is by the pure grace of God (Ephesians 2:8, 9).

The church is the body of Christ on earth and exists to save the lost and edify the saved (Ephesians 4:13-18).

Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).



Northshore Christian Church, Everett, WA
Ken Long, senior pastor

As an independent, nondenominational church, we believe:
The Bible is divinely inspired and without error (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).

Man is by nature a sinner from birth (Psalm 51:5).

Jesus Christ was virgin-born, fully human and fully divine, sinless, died on the cross for our sins, was raised from the dead on the third day, and is coming again (Matthew 1:18; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; John 1:1 and 14:3).

Salvation is a free gift bestowed by God’s grace and received by faith (Ephesians 2:8, 9).

Immersion in water of a professed believer is the Bible baptism (Acts 8:36-38).

Such baptism is symbolic of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:1-4).

A believer’s salvation is secured by Christ alone (John 10:27, 28).

The church is the bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:25-33) . . . and the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12).

The local church is governed by godly men known as elders or bishops (Titus 1:5ff).

The purpose of the church on earth is to fulfill the last command of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).

Christians are endowed with spiritual gifts that enable them to minister in the church (Ephesians 4:1ff).

The Holy Spirit, which every believer receives at conversion, leads and guides us (Ephesians 1:13, 14).
