What We Teach

The Holy Trinity

Lincoln Avenue Christian Church in Pasadena, California, believes in the divinity of the Holy Trinity. For us, there is only one God who eternally exists as three personas: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Read on to understand more about this important doctrine.


The Holy Bible

We believe that the entire Bible, comprised of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God. The Spirit of God inspired humans to write the very words of the Scriptures. The original manuscript of the Bible is therefore inerrant, infallible, and is the final authority on all matters of faith and practice in every age.

Humanity and Sin

We believe man was created by God in His image and likeness. God created man free of sin, with volition, rationality, and moral responsibility in order for him to have fellowship with God and accomplish His purpose in the world. Due to Adam's voluntary disobedience to the will of God, man lost his innocence, incurred the penalty of spiritual and physical death, and became subject to the wrath of God. Man was alienated and became inherently corrupt. He also became utterly incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through human effort apart from divine grace.


Salvation

We believe salvation is a result of God's grace alone, apart from any human effort or work. It is accomplished solely by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ who bore our sins, nullifying the curse of the law, and satisfying the righteous judgment of God. Salvation can be achieved by having faith in Jesus Christ's atoning sacrifice at the cross and resurrection from the dead. This faith is completely sufficient to eternally reconciling the believing sinner with God.
