The following are the core beliefs of The Reach United 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.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself. God continues to reveal Himself to us through The Holy Spirit and will continue to do so until He comes again in glory.
Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.
When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are called to do all we can to bring as many into the body of Christ and to help them find their gifts, anointing, and purpose in HIM.
The Holy Spirit
We attribute to the Holy Spirit the acts and attributes of an intelligent being. We believe He is real and present in the world today. He guides, knows, moves, gives information, commands, forbids, send forth, reproves and is the instrumental segment of the Trinity the liberal dispersion of spiritual gifts and can be sinned against
The nine gifts of the Spirit set forth in 1 Corinthians 12 should be and must be operative in the church to enjoy the fullness of God. These gifts are imparted by the sovereignty of the Holy Spirit and only work and are manifested only by this one Spirit and the self-same Spirit.
Biblical giving is the giving of self and wealth to God and His work, and doing so voluntarily out of love for God and His work. We are challenged and commanded to bring the tithes into storehouse for the glorifying of God and the edification of the body. Cheerful giving is one of the many spiritual calls to action for a believer in Christ.
