Statement of Faith
What we believe in CAFE Church

 The Trinity We believe that God eternally co-equally exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God.  

God’s Creation We believe that God through Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit created and governs all that exists. He created man and woman in His own image and has commissioned them to exercise dominion over His creation.

Authority of Scripture We believe the Bible, in its entirety as originally given, to be inspired by the Holy Spirit, without error and the infallible, authoritative Word of God.  

Satan and the Fall of Man We believe that by willfully sinning against God, man fell into rebellion against God. Since the fall, all men are born in sin and therefore subject to God’s wrath and captive to Satan’s kingdom of darkness. Mankind’s only escape from this satanic bondage is to biblically repent of sins, appropriate the sacrificial blood of Jesus as the required ransom for their sins, and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus.  

Jesus as Our Lord and Savior We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, who became the substitution and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood on the cross for the forgiveness of sins. We believe in His soon coming personal return in power and glory to receive His Church. Jesus came to earth to redeem that which was lost (Luke 19:10). We believe that all Christian activity should have a redemptive and transformational purpose.  

Salvation (New Birth) Salvation (a born again conversion experience) is an awesome opportunity made available to all mankind. To take advantage of this opportunity, we believe in the necessity of biblical repentance, the personal appropriation of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. When this is sincerely done the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. We deny that Christ can be received as your Savior without Him becoming Lord of your life. We believe that faith without accompanying spiritual or physical works is dead. We are called to a life of discipleship and holiness in joyful obedience to Jesus Christ.  

The Holy Spirit We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son. We believe that the Holy Spirit makes available everything believers need to live a godly life and accomplish everything He asks us to do.  

The Great Commission We believe that the Church is commissioned to preach the Gospel to the world and to disciple the nations. We believe in the practical application of the Christian faith in everyday life and the need to minister to people everywhere and in every area of their lives, which includes not only the spiritual, but also the social, commercial, political and physical.  

Governments in the Workplace We believe that all authority and dominion flows from Jesus Christ who has delegated His authority to various governmental spheres among men, including self, family, church, corporate and civil. Each believer has been divinely assigned a sphere of influence that they must bring under the dominion of Christ.  

Fivefold Ministry Offices, Elders and Deacons We believe that Christ Himself has bestowed upon certain men and women of His choosing the spiritual gifting of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers. These five offices constitute the eldership of the Church whose function is to cooperate in spiritually equipping and activating believers for effective service in every sphere of life, including the marketplace, political, education, media, arts, family and church. The work of the eldership is to establish spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ. Their objective is to establish the Kingdom of God on earth.
