Statement of Beliefs

Dream Church recognizes that it cannot, and does not desire to, bind the conscience of individuals in areas where Scripture is silent. Rather, each believer is to be led in those areas by God, to whom he or she alone is ultimately responsible. We believe the Statement of Beliefs to be an accurate summary of what Scripture teaches.

The Scriptures - The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are a revelation of God to man. While Jesus Christ Himself is the ultimate and supreme Word of God, the Scriptures serve to reveal who the Word (Jesus) is and who we are. Dream Church accepts the Bible as a revealed word of God, and the entrance into a life of intimacy with the Trinity. (John 1:1-2; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)

The One True God - The one true God has revealed Himself as the "I Am," the Creator and Redeemer of mankind. We believe God eternally exists in three persons called the Trinity which is comprised of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 43:10,11; Genesis 1:1; Ephesians 4:5-6)

The Deity of Jesus - Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of the Father. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death, resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of God. (Revelation 1:8; Hebrews 1:3)

The Delusion (Sometimes Known as the Fall) of Humanity - Humanity was created good and upright; however, humanity voluntarily agreed with the idea that they had to "do something to be something" that we know they already were (like God), and thereby, were lost. As a result, they had a skewed view of God, the Creation, and theirselves. Jesus reversed the curse, woke us up to the reality of our identity, destroyed death and its reign forever, and humanity has been born again. (Genesis 1:26-27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19; Romans 8, Colossians 1)

The Reconciliation of Man - Salvation is Jesus Christ and the events that proceed from the incarnation. Salvation has released us from death and brought us back into the Trinitarian, relational spin where we belong. We are seen as perfect, righteous, filled with the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, and the bride of Christ. (Romans 5; John 3:3; Romans 12:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 8; Song of Songs)

Ordinances of the Church – We believe in baptism in water in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice or wine (the body and blood of Jesus Christ) are taken to share in Jesus’ sacrifice and to share in the meal of the saints. (Mark 16:16; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Sanctification - We believe sanctification is the act of being in face to face communion with Jesus where you get convinced of what He thinks of you until evil and darkness become irrelevant and tied to the identity you died to through Christ's salvation. (Romans 12:1, 2; 1 Peter 1:16; Hebrews 12:14)

The Church and Its Mission - The Church is the bride of Jesus on earth and is to be the governing body of the kingdom until the kingdoms of this earth become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. (Matthew 28:19; Luke 19:10; Revelation 11:15)

The Blessed Hope and Second Coming - We believe Christ in us (now) is the "blessed hope." We believe Jesus is coming back to reign, with us, in His kingdom in the New Heaven and New Earth. There, the dead will be resurrected and we shall be with Jesus forever.

The New Heaven and Earth - All of God's children will reign forever in a new heaven and a new earth that brings all of creation back to its "in the beginning" reality. (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21, 22, Genesis 1)
