What We Believe
"For from Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever, Amen.” - Romans 11:36
Orlando North Church is called to go and be Christ's church through the Holy Spirit, by connecting people to God and each other for His glory.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 3:16-17)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Acts 10:38-43; Hebrews 1:2-3; Matthew 25:31-32)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling and filling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the anointing and baptism of the Holy Spirit by which His gifts and ministries are released through the Body of Christ, the Church. (Acts 2:1-4; John 16:7-14; Galatians 3:22-23)
We believe in the Church, the bride of Christ, whose goal is to make disciples throughout the world. This global Church is comprised of many local fellowships. We affirm those fellowships that see Jesus Christ as Lord and the only way to heaven. (Acts 2:46-47; Matthew 28:19-20)
We believe in the Biblical definition of marriage: one man and one woman, committed to each other in a union of mutual love, faithfulness, and respect. Marriage exists to be a picture of the unchanging love Christ has for His own bride, the Church. (Genesis 2:18,22-24; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:31-32)
We believe that the Bible alone is the infallible, inspired Word of God, and that its authority is ultimate, eternal and final. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction and reproof. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Psalm 119:103)
We believe in communion as a commemoration of Christ’s death and will continue to do it in this memory until He comes again. It is a sign of our relationship with Him. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Matthew 26:26-29)
We believe baptism is an outward sign of what God has already done in our lives. We follow Christ’s example, and through it identify with Him, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 16:31, 33)
We believe mankind is enslaved to sin. Jesus Christ came to pay the price for our sin on the cross. By his death, we can be in right-relationship with God. His death makes possible the healing of our body, soul and spirit. (John 8:34; Romans 6:16, 23; Isaiah 53:6)
We believe that salvation is a free gift from God based on the merits of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, and is appropriated by faith. (Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 4:12; John 1:12; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
We believe in a literal second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and eagerly await the resurrection of those who died in Him. We believe in a literal heaven and hell. Christ, based on their relationship with Him, determines the eternal status for saints and unbelievers. (Romans 8:11; I Corinthians 15:12-14, 19)
