What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

What We Believe

The following are the core beliefs of Nickel City Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines:


God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons known as the trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal and one, but separately identifiable.

He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow! (Genesis 1:1, 26, 27 & 3:22; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the ultimate source of truth for Christian beliefs about daily living because it is all the most important things God wanted us to know on this side of Heaven. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any form of error (including scientific and historical). (I Tim 1:13 & 3 :16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; I Cor 2:13; Psalm 119:105; Proverbs 30:5)


Jesus is the Son of God. He is equal and one with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus came to this earth as a human, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin (named Mary), and lived a sinless human life as God in a body. Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He physically rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death! Jesus ascended into Heaven and will physically return again someday to reunite with those who recognize Him as their Savior.  (Matt 1:22,23; John 1:1-5,14; Heb 4:14-15; 1 Cor 15:3-4; Rom 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Tim 6:14-15; Is. 7:14; 9:6)

Human Beings / Sin Nature

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the most loved part of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us at some point have disobeyed God’s perfect plan. That’s called sin. Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our lives. Thankfully Jesus came to give us freedom from sin (see Salvation).
(Gen 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Rom 3:23)


Salvation is God’s free gift to us (a way we can be freed from the penalties of sin and made right with Him) but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works, only by trusting in Jesus. The Bible says sin is a death penalty, but thankfully Jesus took our punishment for sin by dying on the cross! When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, then we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus into his life by faith. (Rom 6:23; Eph 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:2; Gal 3:26; Rom 5:1, 10:9-10)

The Holy Spirit

When a person begins a relationship with Jesus, the Holy Spirit (God’s Spirit) begins to live inside the believer at the moment of salvation! The Holy Spirit equips us with everything we need to live a godly life, filled with power and purpose, as an example to others of God’s truth and love. (Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; 10:44-46; Gal 3:14-15). In 1 Corinthians 12-14, the Bible lists many gifts of the Holy Spirit. These gifts include: Wisdom, Knowledge, Faith, Healing, Miracles, Prophecy, Discernment, and Tongues (unknown languages) and Interpretation. Though these words may seem foreign or intimidating, these are actually all practical ways that God helps to equip us both inside and outside the church!  At Nickel City Church we aim to teach on these gifts in a practical and accessible way.


We believe that God still works miracles today! Whatever circumstances we face (whether we are in need of physical, emotional or relational healing, or if we are in need of any other type of healing or provision from God) He has the power to change us or our circumstances.
(Isaiah 53:4,5; Matt 8:16,17; James 5:14-16)


In the book of Genesis, we see that God created marriage. It is a covenant made between a man and a woman that makes them one (Genesis 2:24). The marriage covenant requires husbands and wives to be faithful, loving, and helpful toward one another as they live devoted to God and one another!

Holy Living

God’s grace meets us where we’re at, but His deep love doesn’t desire for us to stay there! Our mission at Nickel City Church is to help equip each person to take their next steps into a realer and more genuine relationship with God, and that’s because our relationship with God is what encourages our spiritual growth (the process of becoming more like Him).

As we become more like God, we are more prepared for every good work He has for us (2 Tim 2:21). Our choice and passion to follow Jesus is a commitment to let go of our old lives (sinful habits and selfish desires) and work on stepping fully into all God is and all He has for us! (1 Thess 5:23; John 17:17; Gal 2:20; 2 Cor 5:27; Rom 6:6)
