ABOUT

The Connecting Co - Tulsa Church - Connecting People to Jesus and Each Other

WHAT WE BELIEVE

THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.

THE ONE TRUE GOD
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

MAN’S FALL
We believe that sin ultimately separates each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

THE SALVATION OF MAN
We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and man and is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and perfect life, died on the cross in our place to atone for our sins, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the gift of salvation we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.

BAPTISM IN WATER
We believe that baptism in water is a public profession of ones faith to follow Christ. Baptism should take place following salvation and is an important step in living in the fullness of the life that God intends for us. However, it is not essential to our salvation.

THE CHURCH
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the importance of believers to meet regularly together for worship, community and discipleship.

MINISTRY
We believe that God has individually equipped us through the Holy Spirit so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives, which is, to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

ETERNITY
We believe that our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to Jesus Christ.

RETURN OF CHRIST
We believe that the Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.

This is what we believe.
