Our Statement of Faith Paseo Verde Christian Church is dedicated to the restoration of Christianity as it is revealed in the New Testament Scriptures. We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and that He is the final authority for all things having to do with Faith and practice. Christ promised the apostles that they would be guided into all Truth (John 16:12-15). Therefore, we believe that Apostolic precedent (example) was directed by God and is as authoritative as verbal Apostolic commands. That which the Apostles led the church to do is that which we seek to emulate. It is clear in the teaching of the New Testament that the requirements for salvation and the requirements for church membership are identical. One becomes a Christian and a member of Christ's Church at exactly the same time and in exactly the same way. One cannot just "join" the church of our Lord. The following requirements are stated clearly in the New Testament as essential for salvation and are prerequisites to being a part of the spiritual body of Christ which is the church.
