What We Believe

What We Believe

For Peak Street, the gospel (i.e. good news) of Jesus Christ is both the theological foundation and the shaping force of our identity as a Jesus Church. We also affirm these core beliefs …

God
The one, true and living God is a God of love, holiness and righteousness; God is sovereign, the Creator and Ruler of all (Is. 6:3; Acts 4:24)

Scripture
Scripture is the Word of God the first and final authority for faith and life (Ps. 19:7; Heb. 4:12)

The Trinity
God is three-in-one: God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Gen. 1:26; Jn. 8:58)

The Fall
Because of human sin, all creation has fallen from its original state of perfection; as a result, human beings are subject to death, the consequences of rebellion, and the holy judgment of God (Gen. 3:17; Rom. 3:23)

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is Lord, fully God and fully human, and the only way to eternal life (Gen. 3:15; Jn. 14:6)

The Cross
Jesus Christ, the innocent Son of God, died in the place of fallen, rebellious humanity to satisfy the holy judgment of God and was raised bodily from the dead in the power of the Spirit (Isa. 53:5; 1 Pt. 3:18)

Reconciliation
By grace through faith in Christ alone, which comes as an unmerited gift from God, a person is reconciled with God, guided and comforted by the Holy Spirit, and assured of eternal life (Ezek. 37:14; Eph. 2:8)

The Return of Christ
When Jesus returns to earth, He will consummate His Kingdom and establish the new creation (Isa. 60:19; Rev. 21:5)

Partnerships

The flourishing of our city requires a number of strategic partners working alongside one another to care for the wounded and promote the welfare of our East Dallas neighbors. These partnerships are just a few who are seeking to embody this vision in the city of Dallas, and they are near to our heart at Peak Street Church.
