Our Core Beliefs (Believe)

Living Stone Community Church is held up by these main pillars of truth:

  • Living Stone- We believe that Jesus Christ is the Living Stone, the bedrock, the foundation of the Christian faith and that we as Christians are being built up in His image.

    • (See 1 Peter 2:4-6, John 1:1,14, 1 Tim 3:16, Titus 2:13…and many others)

  • Community- You are not created to go it alone. We believe Christians should live in community with both each other and the community in which God has placed them. We are here for the East Valley of Phoenix.

    • (See 1 Thessalonians 5:14, Colossians 3:13, Galatians 6:2, James 5:16, Proverbs 17:17, 27:17, Matthew 18:20, Romans 12:16)

  • Church- The Church is not a building but God’s people set aside to do God’s work for God’s glory

    • (See Hebrews 10:24-25, Romans 12:5, Ephesians 2:19-22, Colossians 1:18, Ephesians 4:11-16)

Additional Beliefs

Living Stone holds to solid doctrines that will influence our teaching and actions in distinctive ways. 

  1. The gospel of Jesus Christ radically reshapes every person's identity, motivations, and actions.

  2. Every single Christian is equipped with the Spirit of God to accomplish the mission of God.

  3. God saves people through Christ in order that they would go out, making disciples and starting churches.

  4. God created men and women as equal and complementary image bearers of God.

Those doctrines will create a distinctive feel to everything Living Stone does as an organization.

We would refer those interested to read through the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 for a more in depth look at our theological commitments.
