What We Believe
Midtown Church affirms orthodox Christian doctrines. This means we adhere to some of the most ancient creeds of the faith including the Nicene Creed. The following seven statements succinctly state our core beliefs, which we uphold unity on and allow for diverse opinions about others. We do not endorse dogmatic teaching about secondary matters.
The Authority and Inerrancy of Scripture
We believe the Bible, as revealed to us in the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God and is our final authority and without error in its original manuscripts.
The Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
We believe in One God who exists eternally as three co-equal, fully divine persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Full Deity and Humanity of Jesus
We believe that God Incarnate, Jesus Christ, is both fully God and fully human at the same time.
The Dignity and Depravity of the Human Race
We believe that every person has inherent worth and value because they are created in the image of God, and yet that every person is a sinner by nature and by choice and unable to justify themselves before God based on their own deeds.
The Substitutionary Atonement and Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus died in our place for our sins, was buried, and then was physically resurrected to new life.
Salvation by Grace Alone through Faith Alone in Christ Alone
We believe that people are reconciled to God and reborn to eternal life by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ and not as the result of any human efforts.
The Future Physical Return of Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to the earth in the future to finalize His work of redemption and restoration.
