Beliefs

Just a quick note. This page is meant to give an overview of the beliefs of Remix Church. These items are highlights to give you a glimpse into our convictions. All beliefs are supported by Scripture in our detailed beliefs statement.  

The bible

  • We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, without error in its original writing, has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. (Exodus 24:4; Deuteronomy 4:1-2; 17:19; Joshua 8:34; Psalms 19:7-10; 119:11,89,105,140; Isaiah 34:16; 40:8; Jeremiah 15:16; 36:1-32; Matthew 5:17-18; 22:29; Luke 21:33; 24:44-46; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Acts 2:16; 17:11; Romans 15:4; 16:25-26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

God

  • We believe in the holy Trinity. (Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19)

    • We believe in God the Father, who is sovereign over all things and unchanging. (Gen. 1:1; Ps. 90:2, 139:7-12, 16; Matt. 19:26; Rom. 1:20; James 1:17; 1 John 3:20; Rev. 9:6)

    • We believe in God the Son, Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, fully God and fully man, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary. (Matt. 1:23; John 1:14,18, 2:19; Acts 1:9-11; Rom. 10:8-10; 1 Cor. 15:3-4; 2 Cor. 5:21; Phil. 2:5-8; 2 Tim. 2:8; Heb. 4:15, 7:25, 8:1, 9:14, 28; 1 Pet. 3:18)

    • We believe in God the Holy Spirit who lives in all believers at the moment they are regenerated (born again), guiding and teaching Biblical truth, regenerating and empowering them to live a life of godliness. (John 14:16, 17, 26, 15:26, 16:7-14; Acts 5:3-4; Rom. 8:14, 12:3-8; 1 Cor. 12-14; Gal. 5:22-23; Eph. 3:16, 4:7-16; Titus 3:5; Heb. 2:3-4)

Humanity and God

  • We believe man and woman were created in the image of God, free from sin, and in intimate fellowship to God. Adam disobeyed God and brought sin into the human race resulting in both physical and spiritual death for all of humankind. In his fallen condition, man was left totally depraved and unable to remedy his own situation. (Gen.1:26-27, 2:7, 3:1-13;)

Sin

  • We believe that sin is anything that does not conform to the character and nature of God.

  • Sin is falling short of God's glory – missing the mark of His perfection – through negligence, unfaithfulness and willfully crossing boundaries set by God. Every person is guilty of sin and the due judgement from a just God is eternal separation from His perfection and presence.  (Rom. 3:23; Gal. 3:10; James 4:17; 1 John 2:15-17; 3:4)

  • We believe Jesus’ shed blood on the cross of Calvary settled the sin debt for those that would believe in His obedient act of sacrifice. Salvation involves the redemption of the whole person, for eternity, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  (Ps.3:8; John 2:9; Eph. 2:1-2)

Humanity and Ministry

  • Christ died for all people, therefore, every person possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love. (Gen.1:26-27, 2:7, 3:1-13; Isa. 53:6; John 3:3; Rom. 3:23, 5:12; 1 Cor. 15:21-22; Eph. 2)

  • The new birth of man's spirit by God's Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others and an altruistic desire to see others in relationship to Christ. Missionary effort on the part of all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness undergirded by a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.(Genesis 12:1-3; Exodus 19:5-6; Isaiah 6:1-8; Matthew 9:37-38; 10:5-15; 13:18-30, 37-43; 16:19; 22:9-10; 24:14; 28:18-20; Luke 10:1-18; 24:46-53; John 14:11-12; 15:7-8,16; 17:15; 20:21; Acts 1:8; 2; 8:26-40; 10:42-48; 13:2-3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 3:1-11; 1 Thessalonians 1:8; 2 Timothy 4:5; Hebrews 2:1-3; 11:39-12:2; 1 Peter 2:4-10; Revelation 22:17)

Justice

  • We believe the Lord requires Christians to seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly in His ministry (Micah 6:8). Justice and Righteousness are connected intimately. As the Lord’s ambassadors, Christians find joy in maintaining justice. Those that search God’s truth are given those truths to use in the lives of others. This may be summed up in treating others as we wish to be treated.  Learning to do right means seeking justice, defending the oppressed, taking up the cause of the fatherless, and pleading the case of the widow (Isaiah 1:17). Christians acting justly are blessed by the Lord. (Psalm 106:3; Proverbs 21:15; 28:5; 29:7; Ecclesiastes 3:17; Hosea 12:6; Amos 5:24; 33:5; Matthew 7:12)

Family

  • We believe God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. The marriage relationship models the way God relates to His people. Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage of the Lord. (Gen. 1:27-28; Eph 5:22-33, 6:1-4; Col. 3:18-21; Matt. 19:14; Psalm 127:3)

  • We believe the term “marriage” has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen. 1:27, 2:18-25; Eph. 5:22-33) We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and woman. (Prov. 6:25-29; Mal 2:16; Mat. 5:27-28; Rom. 7:1-3;2 Cor. 6:15-20; Heb. 13:4)

Conduct

We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of the Church. (Luke 18:9-14; Rom. 15:1-3; Phil 2:3-4)
