What We Believe

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of The Camp 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.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 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.


We believe that our Creator has revealed Himself to mankind through creation, through His Son, Jesus Christ, and through the Bible.

Creation itself shows us that there must be a Creator who is eternal, omnipotent, wise, creative, and personal.  However, creation cannot tell us specific and personal things about God.  That's why God has also revealed Himself in a book.

God has revealed Himself to us through the Bible, the Holy Scriptures.  The Bible is God's Word in black and white for us all to read, study, and meet Him in the passages.  We believe the Bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit, contains no errors, no myths, and is authoritative over our lives.  In it we find the Gospel, the Good News and the life transformation that comes with it.  

Finally, God has revealed Himself to us through His Son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God.  He is the final word on what God is like.  To know Christ is to know Father God.  


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, their sin caused a fracture in the relationship between God and mankind.  It also brought death, disease, and brokenness into the world.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised Him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who will repent of their sin, call out to Jesus in prayer, and follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Jesus engineered His little churches to be disciple-making machines, places where believers using their Spiritual Gifts build up other believers in the faith.  In this way, churches grow believers to maturity in Christ.


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
