Our Beliefs

In an ever-changing world, defining what we stand for must be based on an unchanging God. The Bible reveals truths that shape our decisions and give us guidance on our journey through life. REACH believes:

The Bible is inspired by God and represents His plan for mankind.

There is only One God who reveals Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Trinity.

As God’s son, Jesus was both human and divine.

Because of Adam and Eve’s disobedience, man was separated from God and brought sin, death, and evil into the world.

Anyone can have a restored relationship with God by believing in Christ, accepting His forgiveness, and living according to His Word.

Sanctification is a lifelong process that progressively makes us more like Christ as we seek Him and live holy before Him.

Healing is a gift provided through Christ’s sacrificial death for our sin on the cross.

Immersion in water (baptism) after confession of faith in Jesus and Holy Communion are symbolic acts for the life of a Christian. They serve to remind us of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

The Holy Spirit is a gift for all who confess Jesus as Savior and gives them power to witness and be effective in serving.

The church is God’s bride made up of people who accept His offer of redemption through Jesus’ death. This body has a call to reach all who are separated from God by sin.

A divinely called leadership ministry serves the church. The Bible teaches that believers are to worship with others, reach others for Christ, and build up the body by showing love and compassion.

Hope of eternity spent with Jesus awaits all believers. Those who have died will rise from the grave and those who are alive will join Him when He returns to earth to rapture His church.

Speaking in another language not naturally acquired gives initial evidence of the Holy Spirit’s presence in one’s life according to Acts.

After His second coming, Jesus will reign on earth for 1,000 years. This will be a time of salvation for Israel and peace throughout the world.

Christ is preparing a new heaven and earth for those who have accepted His gift of forgiveness. All who have accepted His salvation will live and reign with Him.

A day of final judgment will occur when those who have rejected Jesus as Savior will be judged for their sin and punished to eternal separation from Him in a lake of fire.
