VISTA CORE DOCTRINE

God
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe the three persons of the Trinity are equal in power, glory, and love. We believe Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity who became flesh in the incarnation to reveal God and reconcile creation.

Scripture
We believe the Bible is inspired by God, the ultimate authority for life and faith, infallible in what it teaches.

Humanity
We believe all humanity is created in God’s image, and yet fallen and in need of redemption.

Salvation
We believe Christ died for our sins, in our place. We believe Christ was resurrected, conquering the power of sin and death. We believe we are saved by grace, through faith.

Church
We believe the church is the body of Christ, a glimpse of the coming kingdom of God, a community of disciples following Jesus together, blessed by God to bless the world in the name of God.

Consummation
We believe Christ will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will be without end.
