WHAT WE BELIEVE

Wonder what we at Hanoverdale believe about God, sin , worship, or other important topics? Below we outline the tenants of our faith in a clear and concise manner because; what we believe is who we are. 

WHAT WE BELIEVE


Hanoverdale Church believes that there is only one true, and eternal God, existing in three co-
equal Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4-5).


We believe that God loves His creation and desires to be in relationship with us (Genesis 1:31;
John 3:16).


We believe that because of sin, all are lost, unable to glorify a holy God by being in relationship
with Him (Romans 3:23).


We believe that Jesus Christ came to earth with one purpose, fixing the broken relationship
with God as the Savior and for all who believe. By placing our faith in His work on the cross, we
believe that we will be saved from the coming judgment upon the world by God (Romans 6:23;
Ephesians 2:8-10).


We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. We hold that the Old
Testament Hebrew Scriptures reveal the unfolding purpose for humanity, and the New
Testament is the record of the life, ministry, teaching, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ;
and is our guidebook for faith, life and practice (2 Timothy 3:16).


We believe that followers of Christ are to be disciples in a broken and fallen world seeking to
make more disciples. We confess the Lordship of Christ, and we seek to be taught and guided
by the Holy Spirit to be people set apart to live out the principles of biblical peace and
reconciliation, simple living, integrity of speech, family values, and service to neighbors near
and far (Matthew 28:18-20).


We believe that human beings were created to exist forever, and will ultimately either be
eternally separated from God in hell because of rejection of Christ, or in union with God
through salvation in Christ, will find themselves in heaven (John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:11-15).
