Core Beliefs

At Coastal

Pursuing God's truth is a top priority at Coastal.
We strive to do everything in accordance with scripture and teach others to do the same.

We Embrace Biblical Authority

Scripture is inspired by God and is our full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice (Psalm 119:11; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

We Embrace Prayer

We are a church that prays, believing that prayer is the power source behind everything that happens in our ministry (Ephesians 6:18; 2 Chronicles 7:14-15; Matthew 6:5-13).

We Embrace Grace

Our salvation is received by the grace of God and not by our self-effort, and that shapes our acceptance and interaction with others (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:8).

We Embrace Authenticity

Because none of us are perfect, we acknowledge both our strengths and our weaknesses as we pursue holiness and unity as a church.  Truth-telling and biblical conflict resolution are essential to relational authenticity (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 4:25-32; John 17:23; Matthew 18:15-20).

We Embrace Excellence

Through forethought and intentionality, we pursue excellence in our desire to honor God and inspire people (1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 3:17; Malachi 1:6-14; Proverbs 27:17).

We Embrace People

People matter to God, and they matter to us.  We demonstrate our love for God by loving others with our words and actions (Luke 5:30-32; Luke 15; Matthew 18:14).
