Our Beliefs Based On God's Word

The Sugar Land Church of Christ is a family of believers bound together in Christian love. We are not perfect and readily admit it, but we serve and follow Jesus Christ who is perfect. In that way, we are a church where people can find acceptance and forgiveness and discover the depths of the Christian faith. Our mission is to bring people to Jesus and help them become fully devoted followers who demonstrate God's love through service.

We draw our beliefs entirely from biblical teaching. One of the famous mantras of the churches of Christ is: "Speak where the Bible speaks; be silent where the Bible is silent." Its meaning is obvious. 

Whatever the Bible clearly says and can be clearly understood is what the Sugar Land Church of Christ will uphold. The core truths according to biblical teaching are as follows:

  1. We believe in the one true God existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 

  2. We believe in the Bible as the only authoritative, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. 

  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, his sinless life, his teachings and miracles, his crucifixion and resurrection.

  4. We believe in the Holy Spirit as the indwelling presence of God received by all Christians upon baptism.

  5. We believe in salvation as the free gift of God's grace. 

  6. We believe that becoming a Christian begins with an absolute faith in Jesus Christ as God's only Son and that such strong faith motivates one to confess his or her faith, repent of sins, and be baptized for the remission of sins. This is drawn from: John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10, Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38 and Mark 16:16. (There is no verse anywhere in the entire Bible that speaks of the sinner's prayer as a means of salvation.) 

  7. We believe the church is composed of all those who have been born again according to biblical teaching. 

  8. We believe in the second coming of Christ, at which time all people from all time will be judged by God.
