TCCC Belief Statement
The Historical Christian Church...
In Matthew 16:16-18, Peter declares that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Jesus then sets the foundation of purpose and leadership of the Christian Church by His words...”this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”
According to this Scripture then, it is Jesus, empowered by God the Father, with the help of the Holy Spirit that builds the church, not man or any groups of men.
By His death, His battle and victory over sin and subsequent resurrection, Jesus holds the power to forgive mankind of their sin and give them the free gift of eternal life. After making a free-will decision, we then become part of the Body of Christ with Jesus himself as the Cornerstone.
After His death, resurrection, and ascension into heaven we find Jesus with God there. Colossians 3:1 “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.”
In John, during the Last Supper, Jesus had instructed the disciples that after He accomplished His purposes here on earth, He would send a Comforter, the Holy Spirit, who would guide them into all truth. John 14:26 “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
After the ascension, the disciples were all gathered together in one room and the Holy Spirit came upon them and everyone present could hear them in their own language (Acts 2). After the Holy Spirit came, Peter preached his first sermon and the apostles begin their teaching, and the Church of God exploded into the world.
Peter’s first teaching of the gospel resulted in people coming to Christ from every nationality. 3000 were added that day and the model for the Body of Christ was established.
Peter’s message was:
1. Repent and be baptized
2. You will receive the gift of Holy Spirit
3. This message is for everyone
The believers’ established model of the Body of Christ included:
1. Listening to the apostles teaching
2. Fellowshipping together
3. Celebration of the Lord’s Supper
These building blocks led to further actions, which solidified the Church
1. Wonders and Signs were done by the apostles
2. People helped one another financially
3. They met regularly for worship and instruction
The final result was that people came to Christ Daily. This continues to be the goal of New Testaments churches today.
What makes the Church different from other institutions is that it is created by and operated by the Trinity. Other institutions and organizations are created and operated by man.
