At Saint Paul Church of Sacramento, we are a community of faith who accepted the challenge to live our lives believing in Jesus, becoming who God made us to be, and building the Kingdom. This gospel, the timeless good news of God's transforming love in Christ, is the legacy of faith we have been given by those that came before us. It is the Legacy of Faith we build our lives on. It is the Legacy of Faith we will pass on to the world around us for generations to come. With all that is in us, at Saint Paul Church of Sacramento, we are Building a Legacy of Faith.
Building A LEGACY OF Faith
Growing in God's Word
The Word of God is our authority and guide in everything we say and do. It is the center of our focus, the mirror we reflect on, and the power that sustains us. We find God's word to be the very foundation of the legacy of faith we live out.
Engaging in Worship
We glorify God in passionate praise and surrendered worship. In His presence, we find refreshing for daily living and strength to pass on a legacy of faith.
Calling on Generations
We are a multigenerational church that challenges each generation to do its part to build a legacy of faith. We honor one another, valuing the unique gifts, insights, and purposes the Lord reveals to each generation.
Investing in families is investing in the future. God has called us to empower families together to lead in life and build a legacy of faith by providing effective ministry for every life stage.
Thinking Beyond Ourselves
It is not about us, but it starts with us. In every facet of our lives—in church and outside our walls, we build a legacy of faith in those around us through acts of service, community programs, generous giving, and deliberately finding ways to demonstrate His goodness and share the hope that is within in us.
What We Believe
At Saint Paul Church of Sacramento, we believe that the Bible is from God and that the Bible is true. According to the Bible, the following are affirmations we hold:
We believe that there is only one true and living God without division of nature, essence, or being but who reveals Himself to us in three distinct Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Father is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who was made provision for the redemption of mankind from sin, and will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God who exalts Christ, convicts of sin, righteousness and judgment.
The Authority And Power Of The Bible
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man.
We believe salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
About the Church
We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers of the Lord Jesus Christ who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth.
We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an obedient act symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
About The Lord’s Supper
We believe the Lord’s Supper is an ordinance mandated by Jesus Himself. This solemn act is to be done honestly and repeated in commemoration of Christ’s death burial and resurrection. It is a time of introspection and a reminder of the atonement symbolized by the taking of the bread and juice.
We believe every Christian has been called by God to actively participate in ministry (Matthew 28:19-20 & Acts 1:8).
