@VillageOKC we believe biblical precision and theology are extremely important. We seek to avoid manmade interpretive systems of Scripture and promote Biblicism (letting Scripture interpret & cohere with itself in context) and Christocentrism—Jesus Himself is the Interpretive Key for understanding all of God’s Word. Indeed, all of the Old Testament points to Jesus, all of the New Testament points back at Him.

Moreover, we believe that our doctrine drives our practice and the living out of our faith. Theologically we are best described as Christocentric Trinitarians. Our methodology to carrying out our theology is achieved through the process of Disciplemaking. Like the Bereans of Acts 17, if you enjoy the edification of a deep-dive investigation of Scripture then VillageOKC would be a great fit for you! We invite you to come and see how fun and encouraging it can be to learn God’s Word verse-by-verse. #VillageBereans

First-Order Doctrines:
1) The Inspiration, Inerrancy, and Infallibility of the Scriptures
2) The Triunity of the Godhead as Father, Son, & Holy Spirit (only the Trinity is Uncreated)
-The Father is God, the Son is God, the Holy Spirit is God (One God, Three Persons)
3) The Incarnation: the Son took on flesh (Hypostatic Union: fully God/fully Man)
-The Virgin Birth (born of a virgin, Jesus did not inherit a sin nature and He remained sinless)
4) The Supremacy of the Gospel as the most important message to all mankind
-All of humanity is sinful (with the exception of the Godman Jesus)
-Jesus’ death on the Cross as the exclusive atonement & remedy for sin (Jesus died for all)
-Sinful man is saved by grace through faith in Christ alone (Justification)
-Through the Holy Spirit the believer is made into an image of Christ (Sanctification)
-Eternal security of the believer (always saved if saved: salvation cannot be earned nor lost)
5) The bodily resurrection of Jesus
6) The bodily return of Jesus
-All Christ-followers will receive resurrected bodies when Jesus returns (Glorification)
7) The eventual overthrow of Satan & evil in the eschaton with Jesus and His followers reigning

As an SBC affiliated church we uphold the authority of Scripture in all matters and practice and give to the cooperative program to support missionaries. For an expanded statement of beliefs see http://www.sbc.net/bfm2000/bfm2000.asp
