Beliefs

Our philosophy at Great Exchange Church is simple. In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In all things, love. We welcome people of all denominations to our church. Here are the essentials we hold to:

The Bible

God’s word is authoritative, reliable, and truthful. We accept it as our manual for living.

2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the only way to live the Christian life is through the power of God inside of us. Every believer has the Holy Spirit living inside of him or her and can willfully submit to His work inside of us.

Romans 8:9Ephesians 5:18

Jesus

He is God’s son, the second person of the trinity. He lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who trust in Him alone. He rose from the dead three days later and is the only mediator between God and us. He will return to earth again to consummate history.

Romans 5:8Romans 6:41 Thessalonians 4:13-17

Man

God created us for fellowship with Him. We have all defied God and gone our own way. This is called sin. As a result, we need God’s grace to restore our relationship with Him. Salvation comes only through grace and must be received personally through faith.

Romans 5:12-21Ephesians 2:8Romans 10:13-15
