What We Believe

Mesa Church affirms the beliefs outlined in the Nicene Creed, the Apostles Creed, and the Chalcedonian Creed. We generally adhere to the beliefs outlined in the Baptist Faith & Message (2000).


We believe there is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

The Bible

We believe the Holy Bible is inspired by God, authoritative, without error in the original writing and is divine instruction for all Christian life. It is God’s revelation of Himself to man. Therefore, we believe all scripture is true and trustworthy.


We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary, being fully God, fully man and without sin. In Jesus’s sacrificial substitutionary death on the cross, he made provision for the redemption of man from sin. He was raised from the dead and ascended into heaven. According to His promise, Jesus will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised and all will be judged in righteousness.

The Gospel (God's Solution to Man's Problem)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins on the cross according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that he rose on the third day. All who repent and believe in Him are redeemed and justified on the ground of His shed blood. We believe that salvation is from God alone through Christ alone, and our salvation is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit. All who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, a relationship in which they are eternally secure.

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity, is the Spirit of God and is fully divine. He indwells every believer from the moment of salvation and his presence is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into the fullness of stature of Christ. He seals the believer unto the day of final redemption.


We believe humans are the special creation of God, made in His own image. By his free choice we sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Only the grace of God can bring humans into His holy fellowship and enable us to fulfill the specific purposes of God. Christ died for man; therefore, every person of every race possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
