The Church

South Coast Fellowship was established and exists as a viable part of the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

We believe that it is God’s love, extended to us by His grace, that enables us to become a living part of the Body of Christ. Because of that love we now offer ourselves to others as representatives of God’s Kingdom.

We believe that the true sign of a child of God is love. Thus, we have geared our ministry and lives to embrace the full parameters of all that is encompassed in God’s love, and we have committed ourselves to live out that love in word and deed.

1 Corinthians 12:12-18; Ezra 3:8-13; 2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Psalm 32:1-2; John13:34-35; Deuteronomy 6:5-9

The Bible

We believe that the Word of God is inerrant and infallible, as well as uncompromising, and should be taught in its fullness, allowing for applicable revelation wherever lives are receptive.

2 Timothy 3:16-17; Psalm 19:7-11

The Trinity

We believe that there is an eternal, unified, triune Godhead, in which each part is equal in every divine perfection, executing distinct but harmonious offices.
We believe that the second coming of Jesus Christ is imminent and that He, Himself, will return in “clouds of glory” to receive his faithful Church.

1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Zechariah 12:8-10

Salvation

We believe that man without God is eternally lost, and that salvation can only be attained through the grace that He offers in and through Jesus Christ. We believe that because God is Spirit, our worship of Him should be spiritual, as well as intelligent and fruitful.

John 4:23-24; Psalm 29:1-2; John 3:16-18; Isaiah 6:5-7

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the glorious infilling of the promised Comforter to empower the believer from on high for ministry and inspired speaking in service to the Lord Jesus Christ. We also hold that all gifts (manifestations) of the Spirit, given to the Body of Christ, are valid for the balance, equipping, and service in and for that Body.

Acts 2:16-21; Joel 2:28-32

Healing

We believe that divine healing is the power of God, in the Lord Jesus Christ’s name, made manifest in His Body today. Therefore, we believe that, through faith and obedience, His representatives on earth today can operate in the health and wholeness that surrounds the Godhead now and permeated the life and ministry of Christ on earth.

Mark 16:17-18; Isaiah 53:4-5

Giving

We believe that giving is an irreversible principle of God’s Kingdom. Therefore, giving of time, energy, and finances is both taught and practiced. Giving tithe and offering, time and ministry, is an outflow of what God has placed in us to pass on to others.

Luke 6:38; Malachi 3:8-12
