Our Beliefs

God

Gen 1:1; Jn 1:1-4; Acts 17:24-27; 1 Jn. 4:8-9,16

The Loft believes in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all who put their faith in Him alone for eternal life. God is the Creator of the universe. God is love, and He loves His creation unconditionally. God desires more than anything that everyone would be in relationship with Him and know His purpose for their lives. 

The Bible

Ps. 119:105; Jn. 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:21; Heb. 4:12

The Bible is God's Message to us. It reveals God's character and will for our lives. It contains ancient yet relevant truth that serves as a guide for how we should live. We believe that the word of God is without error in original manuscripts.

Salvation

Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:8-10; Jn. 14:6; Rom. 3:22-26

God loves the world so much that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to save us. Humanity rebelled against God. We try to be the god of our own lives, and we do not love each other as God intended. Jesus died on the cross and was punished in our place, so that by believing in Him, we can be made right with God. A person's good works cannot make a person right with God. Salvation comes only by trusting in Jesus' perfect life, death, and resurrection. 

Church

Jn. 4:24; Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; Matt. 5:16

The purpose of the Church is to worship God in spirit and in truth, and to reach a lost and fallen world with the gospel of Jesus Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.

Made New

2 Cor. 5:17; 1 Thess. 4:7; Acts 1:8; Gal. 5:16; Rom. 8:11

Those who trust in Christ are made new. God calls us to a new life, to be holy in character and conduct, and He empowers us to live transformed lives through the Holy Spirit. 

Faith Roots

The Loft is part of The Wesleyan Church, which is one of many great denominations doing incredible work. The Wesleyan Church has roots in the abolitionist movement and the fight for women's suffrage.
