“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
What is the Gospel?
The gospel is the good news of God’s grace invading the darkness of this world. It is the grand narrative of creation, fall, redemption and consummation ordained by God and orchestrated through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Christ’s crucifixion is the heart of the gospel. His resurrection is the power of the gospel. His ascension is the glory of the gospel.
Christ’s death is a substitutionary and propitiatory sacrifice to God for our sins. It satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and appeases His holy wrath. It also demonstrates His mysterious love and reveals His amazing grace. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. There is no other name by which men can be saved. At the heart of all sound doctrine is the cross of Jesus Christ and the infinite privilege that redeemed sinners have in glorifying God because of what He has accomplished. Therefore, we want all that takes place in our hearts, churches and ministries to proceed from and be related to the gospel.
The end result of the Gospel is the restoration and renewal of all things. The world that we live in, which is plagued by darkness, death, and despair, will one day be renewed fully and finally when Jesus returns again. The end of human history is not evacuation from the earth but restoration of the earth, and the Gospel is the only remedy for that to happen.
These basic doctrines within Coram Deo’s statement of faith represent what we believe to be core elements of biblical teaching.
Doctrine of God
We believe in one God eternally existing as one essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God, yet there is one God.
Doctrine of Revelation
God has made Himself known to the world in Jesus Christ, the Scriptures and creation.
Doctrine of Creation and Providence
We believe that God created the world from nothing and governs all things at all times in all places.
Doctrine of Humanity
We believe that all humanity is created in the image of God and possesses intrinsic dignity and worth.
Doctrine of Sin
We believe that sin has fractured all things, leaving the world in desperate need of salvation.
Doctrine of Salvation
We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
Doctrine of the Church
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ sent into the world to shine forth the glory of God.
Doctrine of Resurrection and Consummation of the Kingdom of God
We believe that Jesus Christ is returning to the world in the future to judge the living and the dead.
