What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of The Well based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines. We are based out of the Church of God, Cleveland, TN.  

God

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Revelation

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God; the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

Salvation

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ressurection

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.

The Bible is the Word of God.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16

The Bible is both our guidebook for practical living and is our spiritual communication from God that provides us strength. The Bible is the inerrant, complete, inspired and unchanging word of God.

 You must be born again.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16

“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” Matthew 16:25

In a culture that sees various methods of avenues to be connected to God, The Well believes that Jesus is the only way to access forgiveness and eternal life in God. We believe that every person is born into sin; believing in and accepting the grace of Jesus is the only way to gain forgiveness from sin. Every person can be forgiven and born again.

Believers can and should be filled with the Holy Spirit.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

While forgiveness comes from our relationship with Jesus, we believe that our relationship with the Holy Spirit provides us the power to live our lives focused on Jesus. The Holy Spirit is our best friend, our guide, our comforter and our strength. We believe that our lives can be filled with the Holy Spirit. Lives lived this way are evidenced by fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit found in scripture.
