What We Believe

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Tracy Community Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and the inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21)

  • We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4;Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)
  • We believe in the deity of Christ. (John 10:33); His virgin birth. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life. (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26); His miracles. (John 2:11); His substitutionary and atoning death. (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection. (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father. (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory. (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16)
  • We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved. (John 3:16-19; John 5:24; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)
  • We believe in the ordinances of baptism (as an expression of our new life in Christ) and communion (to commemorate Christ's atoning death and anticipate His return) as commanded by Christ. (Luke 22:19-20; I Corinthians 11:23-26; Matthew 28:19)
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of condemnation. (John 5:28-29)
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, Who gifts us to accomplish Christ’s purposes in the world and Who manifests His presence to the world through Christ’s church. (Romans 8:13-14; Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 1 Corinthians 12; 1 Corinthians 14; Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18)
  • We believe that we as Christians are examples of the love of God in this world. It is this love that we desire to possess and without which we have no right to call ourselves Christians. (1 John 4:16-17)
