What We Believe

irc_believe_wordImpact Rock Church was built upon three main pillars:

  1. Profound Love For God
  2. Genuine Love For His Church
  3. Demonstrative Love For His Lost

Every ministry and event at IRC reflects these foundational truths.

What We Believe:

  • We believe in the Trinity – that there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of everything. He is perfect, holy, loving, just and truthful. He has revealed Himself as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to bring about God’s Kingdom on Earth
  • We believe that Jesus lived a sinless human life, was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, and rose from the dead in triumph over sin, death and Satan. He ascended into heaven, and is alive today
  • We believe Jesus will one day return to this earth in power and glory
  • We believe the Bible to be true in every way and to be the one true guide for our lives
  • We believe that we are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and the work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to relationship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Lord and Savior. After he or she dies, God gives eternal life to those who have done this and trusted in Jesus alone to save them from sin’s punishment
  • We believe in the baptism in water as testimony of our belief in Jesus Christ
  • We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit who guides us in to all truth, shows us when we sin, helps us to turn from sin to godly living and empowers us for Christian service
  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers so that we might have power to be witnesses and that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are for today
  • We believe that the church was created by Jesus and that He is its pastor
  • We believe that one day all people will spend eternity in either heaven or hell and that although God wants all people in heaven, He gives us free choice to receive His free gift of salvation for ourselves
  • When it comes to other doctrines and beliefs, we follow this simple commandment – Love! “If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.” – I Corinthians 13:2 (NLT)
