The Bible is a love letter from God to humanity. We follow it closely and live by its principles with God's help. Below is a non-exhaustive list of things taught in the Bible that drive the activity of Common Ground Las Vegas. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about these teachings.
The Holy Bible is God’s inspired word to man. It is all trustworthy and eternally true. It is not t
he role of man to determine which parts are true and applicable to today.
There is one and only one true God. He reveals himself to us as God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit. He is three in one and yet not at odds with himself. He
is the same yesterday, today and forever.
GOD THE FATHER
God as Father reigns providentially over the universe He created. He loves every human equally.
GOD THE SON
God as Son is Jesus Christ. He is the only Son of God, was born of the virgin Mary, lived a perfect life, suffered under Pilate and died a cruel death on a cross. His substitutionary death on a cross made the way for man to be forgiven of sin.
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
God as Spirit is fully divine. He convicts people of sin, righteousness and judgment. He comforts, enlightens and empowers the church and believers as they live lives of worship.
Humans are made in the image of God and are God’s most precious creation. By their own choice, man and woman sinned against God and became separated from Him. But still, God’s love for every human remains intact.
Because of sin, all of mankind is destined for an eternity separated from Ch
rist, but salvation is the act of rescuing people from this certain eternity to an eternal life with Christ. Salvation is given as a free gift and is by God’s grace through faith in Jesus. Whomever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
