What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Creekside Church  based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Creekside is part of the Northwest Ministry Network of the Assemblies of God.


We believe in one triune God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Creator of all things. (Is. 43:7-10; John 1:1-3, 18; 15:26; 17:11,21; Zech. 14:9; Matt. 2:6; I Tim. 3:16)


We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, was crucified, dead, buried, resurrected; that He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God, the Father, and is true God and true man. (Luke 1:30-35; I Cor. 15:3-5; Acts 1:9-11)

The Bible

We believe the Bible, in its entirety, to be the inspired Word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and conduct. (II Tim. 3:15-17; Heb. 4:12; II Pet. 1:20-21)


We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal joy of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost. (I Cor. 15:20-22; II Cor. 5:10, 14, 15; I Thess. 4:13-15)


We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. (I Pet. 1:3-5, 8, 9; Rom. 5:8-10; I Pet. 2:24-25; Rom 1:16). Learn more about following Jesus.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in sanctification through the Word of God by the Holy Spirit, expressed in personal holiness of heart and life. (Heb. 12:10, 14; I Thess. 3:13; Eph. 4:24; Rom. 6:22).


We believe in divine healing, through faith in the name of Jesus Christ. (James 5:14-16)


We believe in water baptism by immersion as an immediate declaration of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38; 10:48; Matt. 3:13-16; Mk. 15:16)

Baptism of the Spirit and Spiritual Gifts

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance (Acts 2:4), in the gifts of the Spirit, and the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit. We believe that all are available to believers. (Acts 2:1-4, 33; 2:38-39; 10:44-48)

Return of Christ

We believe in the soon-coming, personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:9-11; I Thess. 4:13- 17)

Mission and Evangelization

We believe in world evangelization and missionary work in accordance with the Great Commission, with signs following. (Matt. 28:19)

The Church

We believe in the Church as the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with each born-again believer as an integral functioning member. (Col. 1:17-20; Eph. 2:19-22; 4:11-16)
