What We Believe

As stated in our vision, we make it our aim to be well pleasing to God. We believe the standards for living a life that is pleasing to God are contained in the Christian Holy Bible. What we believe about the Bible:

The Bible
We believe the Christian Holy Bible is fully inspired by God, written by the Holy Spirit through men and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is God’s loving and holy revelation to us and is to be applied to our lives. We are committed to its relevant and powerful truths and it is the foundation for all we do at Steele Creek Church.
God, through His word, enriches lives every day! Join us in person or online as we explore the powerful truths of Scripture, discover the very heart of God, grow together in His life-changing Word!

According to The Christian Holy Bible here's what we believe about:


There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons- the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit- equal in power and glory- and that this triune God created all, upholds all and governs all. We Believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is God’s Son, conceived in an ordinary woman, miraculously by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, Jesus is all God and all Man. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth.
Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. The Holy Spirit regenerates, sanctifies and empowers believers for ministry and is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide for those in Christ. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and exercise all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit, in accordance with the Holy Scriptures. Spiritual gifts are given to glorify God and to edify His church.

We believe that salvation is by God’s grace, a free gift of God apart from works:
  • Salvation requires repentance, turning from one’s own way
  • Salvation is through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We must look to Jesus’ punishment on the cross as payment for our own sin. We become regenerated by the Holy Spirit, confirming us as the children of God.
  • True salvation will be manifested by a changed life with total submission to our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Church

As people become saved, they are automatically a member of the universal church of Jesus Christ. His church is a living spiritual body and Christ is the head. The Church should live as a unified community, committed to knowing and living in God’s word and committed to one another. The Church is the light of the world, we carry Christ everywhere we go and seek to do good in the world, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Return of Christ

We Believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and the endless suffering of the wicked.


Baptism is the act of a believing Christian who wants to publicly confess their personal commitment to Jesus Christ and to identify with His death, burial and resurrection. It is the symbolic burial of the “old person” (one’s sinful past) and the rising again to new life in Christ. The act of Baptism can be defined as an outward expression of an inward decision.

Why do we immerse?

Our English word “baptism” is translated from the Greek word “baptizo.” It literally means, “to dip, immerse or plunge.” Baptism illustrates Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. Baptism is a demonstration that you already believe. It is important to understand that Baptism alone does not “save” you. You are “saved” by your faith in Jesus alone.

Why do we get baptized?

We are baptized because we seek to follow the example set by Christ and because Christ commanded it. Jesus was baptized by John in a river (Mark 1:9). Jesus said, Go then, to all people everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20).

When is a good time to get baptized?

As soon as you have decided to trust Christ with your life, you can and should be baptized. We suggest that children take the time to truly understand and set up a time to be baptized. Fill out this baptism interest form and a pastor will contact you.
We periodically take communion together in our services. When we do, we’re proclaiming the Lord’s death until He comes back for His Church (1 Corinthians 11:26). We are also honoring our Lord and receive His encouragement to us as His body. We encourage each covenant member to take Communion with his or her group and/or family at least monthly. We want to live in remembrance of all Jesus did for us in his physical body.
