What We Believe
La Presa Community Church is a non-denominational which means, we seek to minister to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity (Ephesians 6:24), and to all that love him (John 15:12; 1 John 4:20-21). "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if we have love one for another" (John 13:35)
We hold to the Bible, both old and new testaments, as the inspired word of God. We believe in the New Birth and that Salvation is free gift of God through Jesus Christ to all who will repent and believe in the Gospel (Mark 1:15; John 3:16).
We believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God. (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-35; John 1:14; John 3:16; Acts 13:16-41; 1 John 4:1-5).
We believe in the deity of God the Father; the deity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the deity of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that while we were yet sinners, Jesus Christ shed his precious blood on the Cross and died, that we might have life and have it more abundantly (Romans 5:8; John 10:10). We believe that Jesus rose again from the dead (1 Thessalonians 4:14; Luke 24:1-8; Acts 10:34-41; Luke 24:33-46).
We believe that Jesus, someday after his Resurrection from the dead, ascended to God in Heaven (Acts 1:1-10; Ephesians 1:15-23). We believe in the personal return of Jesus, with power and great glory (Luke 21:27) and his return is an event for saved people to look forward to with great expectation and with constant vigilance and prayer (Luke 21:34-36; 1 John 3:2-3). We believe that this same Jesus, which was taken up from the apostles into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as they saw Him go into Heaven (Acts 1:1-11).
We believe it is the privilege and duty of every Christian to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to live a holy life, being always ready for the return of Jesus and in meantime, each Christian should "occupy" (keep busy in His will and His service) until the Lord's return (John 7:37-39; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:18; Matthew 24:44; Luke 19:13; Titus 2:11-15; 1 Peter 1:13-19).
