What We Believe

Essential truth. Our Statement of Faith. These things don't change at Blue Ridge. This is what we believe, and it's who we are at the core as a church:

We believe in one God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 5:16, 5:45, 6:1,4,8,9; James 1:17; John 1:1, 14:9; Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16–20; 2 Peter 1:21)

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24–28; Hebrews 11:3)

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, our one and only Savior... (John 1:14; 1 John 4:9; John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18)
  • Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary (Matthew 21:11; John 1:14, 19:19; Romans 5:15–17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26–38)
  • Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate (Luke 23:1–46)
  • Who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day (Luke 23:44–24:8; John 20:24–29; 1 Corinthians 15:3–8)
  • Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1–9; Colossians 3:1)
  • Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead (Matthew 24:36–42; John 14:1–3, Acts 1:10–11; 10:39–42; 1 Peter 4:5)
We believe in the Holy Spirit...
  • Who is an active and operative part of the triune God (John 16:5–15; Acts 1:7–8; Romans 8:26–27)
  • Who indwells every Christian (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14)
We believe in the Bible—God's Holy Word, Scripture. We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error... (Mark 12:36; John 14:26, 16:12–15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12–13; 2 Timothy 3:14–16; 2 Peter 1:20–21)
  • We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18, 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)
We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)

We believe the Bible teaches that salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ... (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8–9; 1 Peter 1:18–19; 1 John 1:7)
  • We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ and being immersed into Christ (Romans 5:1–2; Luke 24:45–47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9; Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9; Philippians 2:11; 1 John 4:15; Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1–7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21)
We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere (Matthew 16:13–18; Acts 2:14–47)

We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation (Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1–7; Titus 1:5–9; 1 Peter 5:1–4)
