Our Beliefs

What we believe about God and His Word

The gospel

The Gospel means “Good news” and we believe it is a good news that changes all of life. The Bible tell us that in the beginning God created everything and it all existed in perfect harmony. But this harmony was shattered when man decided to follow his own ways instead of God’s. When man made this decision our relationship with God was broken. But God sent a rescuer. That rescuer was Jesus, who lived the life we could never live and died the death that we should have died. He paid the debt that was owed on our behalf. Now, through Jesus, all who believe through faith and repentance can have a restored relationship with God.

The Trinity

We believe that God is one God that exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and that each member of the Triune Godhead is distinct in personhood and are not simply different expressions of God. We believe Jesus Christ is the second person of the triune Godhead who existed eternally with God the Father and the God the Spirit and that in the fullness of time, Jesus entered this earth and existed simultaneously as fully man and fully God.

the church

We believe the church is the community of believers in Jesus Christ for all time. The local church is made up of regenerate believers who have a relationship with Jesus Christ through faith and repentance. BCM is not a church, and we encourage every believer to find a local church that they can commit to and serve in.

The Scriptures

We believe the Scriptures are God’s revelation of Himself to man. The Scriptures are not a collection of stories about morality but rather a grand narrative of God’s story of creation, fall redemption, and restoration. The Bible is to be read as a narrative and not as some sort of reference book for morality. Scripture should always be read through a Christological lens, understanding that all of Scripture points to the cross. We believe the Scriptures are divinely inspired and without error and therefore is sufficient for every aspect of our lives.

We trust first in the ultimate leadership of Jesus. In order to carry out His mission to the world, we strive to work together as both full time staff and student leaders of BCM. Our goal is to help others grow as we ourselves grow in our relationship with Christ through leading Bible studies, sharing the gospel, discipling other students, and participating in our large group.
