St. Cloud Community Church believes
We believe in one God, who exists in three Persons — the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.
We believe that sin has separated us all from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God.
We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took all our sins upon Himself, died and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He guides us in all areas of our lives blessing us with spiritual gifts and empowering us to demonstrate the character of Jesus Christ — which is the fruit of the Spirit's work in us.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God to man. This gift is effected by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and results in new life in Jesus Christ and adoption as children of God.
We believe that water baptism is an outward act that symbolizes a believer's identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus as they are immersed in Him and He is immersed in them.
We believe that the Lord's Supper is a celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection as we remember His selfless sacrifice.
We believe that the Bible is the written word of God. Its' message was inspired by the Holy Spirit and is accurate and true. It contains teaching that, along with the Holy Spirit Himself, guides us in our relationship with God and in matters of life.
We believe that God wants to bless us in many ways so that we can live victorious lives that will impact and help others.
We believe that we are called to share the love of Jesus Christ and the amazing story of His life, death, burial, and resurrection to everyone.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again just as He promised.
Our Core Values
Serve out of Rest
We can be productive and effective on the outside because we have God's peace and rest on the inside. Serving out of rest is not inactivity, but Spirit directed activity.
We love and value each person because each of us matters to Jesus. In everything we do, we seek to glorify God and edify man through the transforming power of healthy relationships in strong families and in authentic community, in order to help people grow and develop to fulfill their life's purpose.
We seek to excel in all that we do because we have the mind and Spirit of Jesus Christ.
We endeavor to be innovative and always at the forefront of all that we do. We are geared to the times but anchored to Jesus, our Rock.
We treat each other with respect, dignity and integrity. We honor and submit to our leaders as we submit to the Lord.
We believe that prayer is effective and that the word of Jesus is our spiritual authority.
