Our Beliefs

Welcome to PCC

Our greatest desire is to infuse the hope of Christ in our city and world, by empowering generations to passionately follow Jesus, one person at a time. You’re invited to come experience what the community of PCC is all about!

We believe that what the world needs most is generations of passionate Christ-followers, who experience and share His love. As our shame is replaced with grace, we want to share Christ’s healing, love, and truth to everyone around us.

What We Believe

Our Statement of Faith contains the foundational truths upon which we base all our other beliefs.

The Triune God
We believe in the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Bible
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for Christian life and faith.

Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus was a real person, fully God and fully human. He lived a perfect life, then died on a cross, paying the penalty for our sins. On the third day Jesus rose from the grave, conquering death.

We believe that repentance from sin and belief in Jesus Christ, as Savior and Lord, is the only way to salvation.

The Afterlife
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: the saved will be raised to life, and the lost to judgment. Hebrews 9:11-28

Baptism & The Lord’s Supper
We believe in the Biblical teachings of water baptism and the regular celebration of The Lord’s Supper.

Spiritual Gifts
We believe God has supernaturally endowed every believer with spiritual gifts and a unique purpose—and that the Holy Spirit empowers us to live out this purpose, through the Church.

The Church
We believe that the Church—the collective churches around the world—is the living Body of Christ on earth. As members of His Body, we exist to celebrate the living God, cultivate personal growth in Christ, and communicate Christ’s love to the world.
