What we believe

RCC exists to see the Gospel have and irreplaceable impact,
in spiritual and tangible ways, in our community and through our lives.

our core beliefs

About The Bible

We believe the whole Bible is the complete revelation and inspired Word of God and, consequently, is without error. The Spirit used imperfect men to write the words of scripture, but He overcame their limitations through supernatural guidance. As a result, God’s written word is good for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteous living.

2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119:105, 
Psalm 119:160, Proverbs 30:5

About God

The Bible says there is one God who exists in three different persons: the Father, Son, and Spirit. He is the creator and ruler of the universe.

Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19,
I Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14

our core beliefs

About Jesus Christ

As the Son of God, Jesus was born of a virgin into this world. He lived a perfect life and came to die on a cross for our sins. Three days later, He rose from the dead to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He spent more than a month pronouncing the great commission to His disciples, then ascended into Heaven where He is now seated with the Father. Although He sent the Spirit to be our helper, Jesus promised to return one day to establish His kingdom over all.

Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5, John 14:10-30, Hebrews 4:14-15, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 1:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13

About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts to equip them for ministry and for engaging in gospel mission. As Christians, we seek to live under his control every day.

2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:12, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Ephesians 1:13, Ephesians 5:18, Galatians 5:25

our core beliefs

About Humanity

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6, Isaiah 53:6, Isaiah 59:1-2, Romans 3:23

About Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment a person receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.

Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6, John 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1

our core beliefs

About Eternal Security

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12, Hebrews 7:25, Hebrews 10:10,
Hebrews 10:14, 1 Peter 1:3-5

About Eternity

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.

John 3:16, John 14:17, Romans 6:23, Romans 8:17-18,
Revelation 20:15, 1 Corinthians 2:7-9

Our Core Identity

Who we are determines how we operate in life.
At RCC, we are a people whose identity is defined and shaped by Jesus.
As a result of that transformational work...

We Worship

In Community

On Mission

We believe that worship is
the fuel and foundation for followers of Jesus.

Matt 22:37-40
We believe the church is the earthly expression of a heavenly reality, where people from every tribe, tongue, and nation can be united in a beautifully diverse community that glorifies God and supports His mission.

Acts 2:42-47
We believe that Jesus leads those who follow Him on mission to the world around them.

Matt 28:19-20

Core DIstinctives

RCC is part of a diverse, global family of church-planting churches called the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, and we are grateful to partner with them and share their doctrinal distinctives.

We want to allow a unifying, uncommon movement of God to happen through Acts 29. Centered on the Gospel, we desire to advance the mission of Jesus through obediently planting church-planting churches. It is our hope to see this leading to millions of lives changed by the power of the Spirit for the glory of God.

Acts 29 is not a model or a style. We have churches with live preaching and others with video-delivered sermons. We have independent church plants, replants, and existing churches that want to focus on planting new churches out of their existing congregations. Simply put, we seek to be a movement of church-planting churches.
