What We Believe
We Believe There Is One God.
(Deuteronomy 6:4, Ephesians 4:5) He is sometimes called Jehovah or Yahweh (the Hebrew word for God).
He is revealed in three persons: God (the Father), Jesus (the Son), and the Holy Spirit. The three are commonly referred to as the Trinity. (Matthew 28:19)
We Believe Salvation Is Available To Anyone Who Believes In Jesus.
Jesus is God’s Son. He has always existed. Because of sin, mankind was doomed to die (Romans 6:23). Jesus came to earth as a baby, born to a virgin girl named Mary. He lived a life without sin and willingly died for us. (John 3:16) Three days later He rose from the dead, He ascended to Heaven, and He is alive today. We can know Him personally by believing in Him and asking Him to forgive our sins.
We Believe The Bible Is The Word Of God And The Ultimate Source Of Truth.
The Bible was written over a period of about 1500 years, in three languages (Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic), by 40 different writers, yet it contains an incredibly accurate historical record and an impeccably consistent presentation of Spiritual truth. This is only possible because the words of the Bible were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The greatest evidence of the authority of the Bible is not in historical facts or its consistency. It is found in the obvious result of applying the truths of the Bible to our everyday lives. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21)
We Believe God Still Works In Our Lives In Incredible Ways.
The Holy Spirit is still at work in the lives of believers today. In fact, many of the miracles of the Bible still happen and are documented every day. The healing of diseases, the restoration of broken lives, even prophecies and supernatural occurrences, all these things still happen. The reason these things still take place is because the Holy Spirit is still at work in the lives of believers. (James 5:14-16; John 14:12)
PCC is a part of a global fellowship of churches known as the Assemblies of God.
The above description of our beliefs is a very basic, introductory view of our doctrine. For more information about the beliefs and doctrines of the Assemblies of God, visit the AG website here.
The PCC culture is one of diverse ethnicities. PCC seeks to be genuine in relationships and personal growth with God. Our approach is contemporary and non-oppressive. We believe everyone is on a personal journey of discovering Christ for themselves, personal relationships, and community service or outreach. We preach the message of Christ without bashing society.
Because we believe God does not have favorites, YOU matter to Him! Everyone who comes to PCC is a valued person whom God desires to bring meaningful relationships and purposeful living to. We hope to love people the way God does.
We believe the best way to connect with God, whether in church or by our selves is through the Bible, worship, and prayer. Every time we come together we aspire to bring these three elements together. Becoming an effective follower of Jesus Christ is being a student of the Bible along with humility and servanthood.
Building relationships is important for any person seeking to live for God. The Bible is a book about relationships; therefore, we must seek out healthy and proper ones. When conflict arises we seek to bring a solution through biblical truths. We believe God brings everyone together because He knows the potential of our gifts and talents and is supreme over us all.
As one grows in their faith there is a supernatural propensity to grow in maturity often revealed in teaching, mentoring, and/or serving those who are in need. Spiritual growth is a byproduct of yielding one’s ways to God. A heart surrendered to God is a teachable heart. We are all growing in Christ and will never be perfected until we see Him face to face.
