Midtown Church affirms orthodox Christian doctrines. This means we adhere to some of the most ancient creeds of the faith including the Nicene Creed. The following seven statements succinctly state our core beliefs, which we uphold unity on and allow for diverse opinions about others. We do not endorse dogmatic teaching about secondary matters.
We believe the Bible, as revealed to us in the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God and is our final authority and without error in its original manuscripts.
We believe that God Incarnate, Jesus Christ, is both fully God and fully human at the same time.
We believe that Jesus died in our place for our sins, was buried, and then was physically resurrected to new life.
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to the earth in the future to finalize His work of redemption and restoration.
We believe in One God who exists eternally as three co-equal, fully divine persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that every person has inherent worth and value because they are created in the image of God, and yet that every person is a sinner by nature and by choice and unable to justify themselves before God based on their own deeds.
We believe that people are reconciled to God and reborn to eternal life by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ and not as the result of any human efforts.
