What We Believe
Ridge Point exists to be used by God to intentionally bring lost people to full life in Jesus Christ.
Jesus came and modeled a way of life that brings God’s reign here – a way of life that we are called to embrace; a life that asks us to love God with everything we have, and love the people around us the way we love ourselves.
God the Father reigns with gracious and benevolent care over His creation and over all the flow of human history. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, all present and all wise. God becomes our heavenly Father through our faith in Jesus. He is fatherly in His attitude and actions and pursues a relationship with all humanity. Jesus is God’s Son and is God. He has existed from the beginning of time, yet also lived on Earth during the first century A.D. Throughout His earthly life, He was completely God and completely human at the same time. After living a perfect, sinless life, Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice for every human being by dying on a Roman cross. After three days, He defeated sin and death by rising from the grave. He then ascended to Heaven. Jesus will return personally and visibly in glory to the Earth, the dead will be raised, and as king, He will judge all men in righteousness at the end of time.
The Holy Spirit is also God, a full and equal part of the Trinity. The Spirit works in the world to make all people understand their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives inside every follower of Jesus from the moment they decide to follow Him. The Spirit is our power source for life, ministry and spiritual growth. To tap into that power, we must continually yield to the Holy Spirit and the Spirit’s direction for our lives.
That’s why God sent Jesus; to pay the price for our sins so that we can spend eternity with Him. What you decide about Jesus Christ in this life will determine where you will spend eternity. If you reject Him, you will spend an eternity separated from God in hell. If you accept Him, you will spend eternity connected to God in Heaven. When you make the decision to follow Jesus, you step into the eternal and abundant life Jesus promises for all believers; a gift He says He will never take away once we receive it.
