God has revealed Himself as the Creator of all things and the Redeemer of mankind. He is manifested as the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 43:11, and Matthew 28:19)

The Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God. In them we find the final authority for all Christian faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who shares in the deity of God. He is also truly man who was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for sin and arose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate. (Matthew 1:23)

Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost (Genesis 1-3).

This salvation and spiritual life are obtained by regeneration through the work of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 3:23-26)

Man’s salvation and redemption (a free gift of grace from God) can only be obtained by exercising faith, not by works, and by the finished redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

The anointing work of Jesus Christ provides not only salvation but healing for all believers. (Matthew 8:16-17)

Thrive Church believes that all people are created with equal value and dignity, being made in the image of God. We believe that people should be afforded the respect and love God commands of us, regardless of gender, creed, race, or social status. (Genesis 1:26-27, Matthew 22:39, Romans 13:8-10)

Thrive Church believes in the Biblical teaching that we have been made in the image of God and that gender at birth is part of God’s unique design for that individual (Genesis 1:27, 5:1-2, Psalm 139:13-16, 1 Corinthians 7:24)
