OUR BELIEFS

THE BIBLE is the Word of God. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is the supreme source of truth for all Christian beliefs and practices.

(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

 

GOD is the Creator & Ruler of the universe. He is one God in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is infinite and personal, holy and loving, forgiving & just.

(Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

 

JESUS CHRIST is the eternal God who became a man, lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and was bodily raised from the dead. He ascended to Heaven’s glory & will return some day to reign forever.

(Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5, 14: 10-13; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 4:14-15)

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT is God’s presence in the world today. He makes people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He comes to live in every believer at the moment of conversion, and provides power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and personal guidance. The Holy Spirit also gives every believer spiritual gifts which are to be used in ministry to others.

(John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; 12:4-7; Ephesians 1:13-14; 5:18)

 

HUMAN BEINGS are created by God in His image. They are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God & causes them to miss out on God’s plan for their lives.

(Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23)

 

People were created to exist forever, either eternally separated from God by sin & personal choice in a place the Bible calls “hell”, or eternally present with God in heaven through salvation.

(John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Philippians 3:20-21; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15)

 

SALVATION is a free gift received from God. We can never make up for our sins by self-improvement or good works, so we must place our faith in Jesus Christ as God’s provider of forgiveness. This faith involves committing one’s life to Jesus as Lord.

(John 1:12; 14:6; Romans 3:21-26; 6:23; 10:9-13; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)

 

Our salvation, being a gift of God, is secure. It is maintained by the grace and power of God, not the self-effort of the Christian.

(John 5:24; 10:27-29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10-14; 1 Peter 1:3-5)

 

THE CHURCH is the Body of Christ on earth. The term “church” has both a universal meaning (all Christians of all time) and a local meaning (individual congregations like Del Sol). Each local church has the responsibility of deciding its own doctrinal boundaries according to its understanding of the Bible, and determining how it can most effectively contribute to the fulfillment of God’s purposes on earth.

(1 Corinthians 16:19; Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Timothy 5:17)

 

MARRIAGE is defined in the Bible as a covenant, a sacred bond between one man & one woman, instituted by & publicly entered into before God. Therefore, God’s command for human sexuality is that it should be enjoyed only within the biblical definition of marriage between a man & a woman. Husbands & wives are of equal worth before God. Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing & heritage from the Lord.

(Genesis 2:24; 19:5,13; 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Matthew 19:4-6; Romans 1:26-29; 1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; 7:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)

PARTNERSHIPS

Del Sol is an independent church, led by pastors & staff, with the spiritual oversight of a board of Elders, and submissive to Jesus as the ultimate Leader of our church. We believe the local church is the hope of the world, and we also believe in working together with others to spread the message of new life in Christ.

To do that, we choose to partner with other churches, non-profit organizations, and groups that help people and promote the Gospel locally and around the world. Here is a list of some of the groups we have formed long-term relationships with, investing time & finances to create service opportunities for people in our church.
