What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Champion Life Centre 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.

THE HOLY BIBLE

The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant. 
2 TIMOTHY 3:16; 2 PETER 1:20-21; PROVERBS 30:5;
ROMANS 16:25-26


TRINITY

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal. 
I JOHN 5:7; GENESIS 1:26; MATTHEW 3:16-17, 28:19; LUKE 1:35; ISAIAH 9:6; HEBREWS 3:7-11

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. 
JOHN 1:1,14, 20:28; I TIMOTHY 3:16; ISAIAH 9:6;
PHILIPPIANS 2:5-6; I TIMOTHY 2:5


VIRGIN BIRTH

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary’s womb; therefore, He is the Son of God. 
MATTHEW 1:18, 25; LUKE 1:35; ISAIAH 7:14; LUKE 1:27-35

SALVATION

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts.
EPHESIANS 2:8-9; GALATIANS 2:16, 3:8; TITUS 3:5;
ROMANS 10:9-10; ACTS 16:31; HEBREWS 9:22


THE CHURCH

The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
EPHESIANS 1:22, 2:19-22; HEBREWS 12:23; JOHN 17:11, 20-23

RESURRECTION

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; those that are saved to the resurrection of life and those that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.
LUKE 24:16, 36, 39; JOHN 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; ACTS 24:15;
 I CORINTHIANS 15:42, 44; PHILIPPIANS 1:21-23, 3:21
