Statement of Fatih

Real Life Christian Church

Core Beliefs


We believe God is the creator of the world/universe. He has eternally existed and has, over the centuries, made Himself known in 3 distinct ways: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is characterized by love, holiness, grace, and justice. Genesis 1:1-27; Psalm 8:3-6; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14


We believe that Jesus is the only Son of God, sent as Savior of and to the world. We believe in His deity, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death on the cross, and physical resurrection from the grave. We believe He has ascended to heaven and will one day return to take us home. Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5 & 14; 1:10-30; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 4:14-15


We believe in the ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Christian and the Church; that He comforts, guides, equips, and enables believers for life and ministry. We believe He operates through the Word of God to convert the unsaved and empower the saved, seeking to bring us into Christ-likeness. John 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Ephesians 1:13 & 5:17-18; Titus 3:5-7


We believe, that as human beings, we are created in the image of God. However, we also believe that "all have sinned and fall short of God's glory." Sin, in essence, is missing God's mark, His will and way for our lives. Sin is disobedience to God's commands. Genesis 1:27 & 3:22; Isaiah 53:6a & 59:1-2; Romans 3:23 & 6:23


We believe that salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must receive it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Salvation comes only through faith in the person and redeeming work of Jesus. It comes to us by God's grace. The process of salvation involves believing in Jesus as Savior, repenting of one's sins, confessing Jesus as Lord, being immersed (baptized) into Christ for the forgiveness of sins and gift of the Holy Spirit, and living a life characterized by His Lordship - obedience to His commands. John 1:12 & 14:6; Acts 2:38-39; Romans 5:1 & 6:4, 23; Galatians 3:26-27; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 3:21


We believe that people were created by God to exist forever. As a result, we will either exist eternally separated from God by our sin or eternally with God through grace and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be in union with Him is Heaven - eternal glory. Heaven and Hell are real places.  John 3:16-17 & 14:17; Romans 6:23 & 8:17-18;           1 Corinthians 2:7-9; Revelation 20:15


We believe that God created mankind in His image, male and female, from birth. We believe that all human life is sacred and is of inestimable worth in all dimensions. This includes pre-born babies, the elderly, the physically or mentally challenged, and every stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. Genesis 2; Psalm 139


We believe marriage is the only legitimate and accepted sexual relationship and is sanctioned by God, joining one born and remaining male physically and physiologically with one born and remaining  female physically and physiologically in a single, exclusive union. Genesis 2:24; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 7:8-9; Matthew 19:5; Ephesians 5:31


We believe the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God. It is the Final Authority for faith and life. The Bible reveals the heart and mind of God to us. It also judges the thoughts and intentions of our heart. It is used for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness. Psalm 119:11 & 105; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21

Our Mission

We are a community of Real people walking through Christian Life together. We INVITE others to MEET Jesus, to KNOW His love for them and GROW in their walk with Him, and to prepare them to SERVE in His Kingdom and FOLLOW Christ's teachings until His return.

Our Vision

We strive to be a church that is for PEOPLE. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken. We believe that this is done one person; one family at a time. Every person matters to Jesus and therefore ALL PEOPLE matter at Real Life.
