Everything that Menifee Hills Bible Church does is founded upon the truth set forth in the Bible, which is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). These beliefs serve as a bedrock of our ministry (Matthew 7:24).
The Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and inerrant in the original writings.
God is one God, eternally existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are equal in divine perfection and attributes, yet execute distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
Jesus Christ is the true God-man. He was conceived by the Holy spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, and was crucified on the cross for our sins. He died, was buried, was resurrected bodily, and ascended into heaven. He lives there as our High Priest and Advocate.
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, possessing all the attributes of God and qualities of personhood. By Him every believer is called, regenerated, and baptized into Christ. At the moment of salvation every believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit and equipped for service. The sign gifts of the Holy Spirit have served their purpose and are not applicable to the work of the Holy Spirit today.
Man was created in the image of God. He sinned and thereby incurred physical death and spiritual death, which is separation from God. All humans are born with a sin nature.
Salvation of sinners is entirely by grace through the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. His death was a representative and substitutionary sacrifice. All who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood and their salvation is eternally secured.
The Church, a distinctively New Testament organism, is the Body of Christ. The local church is an independent and self-governing body under the headship of Jesus Christ and the authority of the Word. It is composed of born again, baptized believers associated in faith and fellowship.
Satan is the unholy prince of this age and all the powers of darkness. He is destined to the judgment of eternal punishment in the lake of fire.
Hell is a place of everlasting conscious punishment of those who have not placed their faith in Jesus Christ. They are eternally separated from God. Heaven is a place of everlasting blessedness of the saved. They will experience the everlasting enjoyment of God’s presence.
God’s Word is the final authority on sexuality, gender identity, and marriage. God designed marriage as a lifelong covenant relationship between one man and one woman. Every marriage is permanently binding under God’s authority.
