WHAT WE BELIEVE
Woodlands Community Church is part of the Church of the Nazarene. The Church of the Nazarene is a Wesleyan/Holiness Denomination. Our beliefs are summarized below.
We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who exists eternally in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man at the same time, who became like us to bring about our salvation.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active in the world, bringing us to salvation and to entire sanctification.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, giving us all we need to know about how to be saved and live life as it is designed to be lived.
We believe that we are all sinners by both nature and act, and need God's forgiveness and cleansing.
We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross and that, by trusting in His death and resurrection, we can be restored to a right relation to God.
We believe that God has enabled us to turn to Him from sin but that He has not forced us to do so.
We believe that each person must repent, turn away from his sins, and trust Christ to accept Him.
We believe that when we turn from sin and trust in Christ, the old record of sin is wiped clean and we become part of the family of God.
We believe that upon being born anew, the fullness of God's Spirit fills our hearts. It is the Spirit who gives us the power to live victoriously over sin.
We believe that everyone shall face the judgment of God with its rewards and punishments.
We believe in baptism and urge people to be baptized as Christians.
We believe in the Lord's Supper.
We believe God can heal. We pray for healing. We also believe that God can work through medical science.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will come again; that we who are alive at His coming shall not precede them that are asleep in Christ Jesus; that we shall be caught up with the risen saints to meet the Lord in the air, so that we shall ever be with the Lord.
