Hiland Park UPC is a Bible-based church. We’re Bible-based in that we seek to base all of our beliefs and our lifestyle on explicit passages of the Bible or on biblical principles. Based on Scripture, we believe the following . . .
 
The Church
The church is the body of Christ and His ambassadors in this world. The mission of the church is to spread the gospel and lead the lost to Christ. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. The Scripture also admonishes us to bear one another’s burdens, to love one another, and to be kindly affectioned one toward another. (Mark 16:15; I Corinthians 12; II Corinthians 5:20; Philippians 2:5-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 10:25; Galatians 6:2; I Peter 1:22; Romans 12:10)
 
The Word of God
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
 
The Godhead
There is one God with no distinction of persons; and in Jesus Christ is the fullness of the Godhead incarnate. Indeed, Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh (humanity). Jesus Christ was and is, at the same time, both fully God and fully man. He possessed both absolute, unmitigated deity and complete, genuine humanity. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 1;18-23; John 1:1-14; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16; 2:5) The nature of God’s indivisibility was revealed in Deuteronomy 6:4, “Hear O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one”.
 
Baptism
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Our basic and fundamental doctrine shall be the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38; I Peter 3:20,21; Mark 16:16; Titus 3:5)
 
Christian Living
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10).
 
The Future
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11 15)
