Cedar Hills Church is a local expression of the Church—the collection of churches across time that follow Jesus Christ. Our heritage is the faithful example of Christian churches over the last 2000 years. Our future is to pursue the mission of introducing people to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
While Christ-followers (and denominations) have the freedom to disagree on secondary issues, we’ve chosen to focus on the primary elements of the Christian faith. These elements—our most important beliefs—provide common ground for Christ-followers of many backgrounds and highlight the core of the Christian faith for new Christ-followers.
There is one, true God, who eternally exists in three persons—Father, Son, Holy Spirit—each of whom equally possess the fullness of God. God is the creator and sustainer of all life and is active in our world.
Jesus is the Son of God—the physical expression of God on earth. He was born by a virgin, lived a perfect life, and voluntarily died on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. He came back to life three days later, and now sits besides the Father as the only mediator between us and God. He will physically and visibly return to earth someday to complete God’s eternal plan.
forgiveness through Jesus
Humanity was created to be in relationship with God. Unfortunately, we chose to disobey God, which has separated us from God. All people born since suffer this same separation. Christ’s death on the cross provides forgiveness to those who would receive it. Salvation is fully an act of God’s grace. Only by trusting Christ can we be forgiven.
There is one universal church that consists of all people who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ. Whenever Christ-followers come together regularly for teaching and encouragement, that is an expression of the local church. The mission of the church is to: introduce people to Jesus Christ, encourage all people to grow spiritually, and to honor God in every area of life.
The Bible is the written record of God’s revelation of himself to humankind, communicating God’s story in the past, present, and future. It is our compass for living, and our only reliable authority on matters of faith and life.
