Our Foundational Beliefs

Center Point Church is affiliated with the the Church of God denomination headquartered in Cleveland, TN. The Church of God believes the whole Bible to be completely and equally inspired and that it is the written Word of God. The Church of God has adopted the following Declaration of Faith as its standard and official expression of its doctrine.


We believe Salvation comes only through confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (Acts 4:12, Romans 10:9-10, John 14:6)

One Living and True God

We believe there is only one Living and True God. There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:7)

Holy Bible

We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired Word of God (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20, 21)

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father. Jesus was crucified, buried and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor. (Luke 1:26-33; Hebrews 7:25)

We are Justified

We believe we are justified (declared righteous under the blood of Jesus) when we repent of our sins and believe in Jesus Christ. (Acts 13:38, 39; Romans 5:1; I Corinthians 6:11; Mark 1:5)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in other tongues, as the Spirit gives the utterance, to be the initial evidence of this experience. We believe in the operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit and encourage our people to live so that these gifts may be manifest in their lives. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts19:6; I Corinthians 12:4-11)

Freedom of Worship

We believe in the freedom of worship with every form of expression being done in decency and in order, not drawing attention to oneself. We define order in our services as following the anointing of the Holy Spirit through the pastoral leadership on the stage. (1 Corinthians 14:33, 40)

Water Baptism by Immersion

We believe in water baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.(Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:6)

Divine Healing for the Body

We believe in divine healing for the body. However, we encourage and do not condemn medical science.(Acts 3:2-12; Acts 5:15, 16; James 5:14-15)


We believe every blessing we receive from God comes through the merits of The Atonement (Jesus´complete sacrifice for us on Calvary). (Romans 5:11; James 1:16, 17)

Second Coming of our Lord

We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:10, 11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18;Revelation 1:7)


We believe those who die outside of Christ will be punished in an eternal Hell, but those who die “in Him” shall share in His glory in Heaven forever. (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; John 5:29; Jude 1:7)

Sacredness of Marriage

We believe in the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman and family commitment. We promote strong family values. (Ephesians 5:31-33; Ephesians 6:1-4; Hebrews 13:4; Matthew 19:5 Leviticus18:22; Genesis 2:24)
