Statement of belief

While our statement of belief reflects the ancient Christian Creeds and is important to us, we believe that faith in Christ is more than merely “reciting the right words.”  It is the ongoing transformation of our hearts to share in Jesus’ love and, in turn, extend his love to others. We teach unapologetically from God’s Word, but you don’t have to hold these beliefs to experience a sense of belonging here at Watershed Church!

“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Cor. 13:13).


BELIEF STATEMENTS

  • We believe in God the Father, maker of all things, visible and invisible.

  •  We believe in Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

  •  We believe in the Holy Spirit and His continuing work in our lives.

  • We believe in the forgiveness of our sins by the atoning work of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

We remember the warm sense of community we felt when we first attended the Watershed as guests. It felt like a large small group! A couple people noticed we were new and came over and said hello. Before the service, kids were talking and playing with each other and people were sharing highlights of their week over a cup of coffee. We loved the simple, peaceful acoustic feel of the worship and being able to hear the beautiful blend of people in the congregation worshiping together. We were especially touched by the prayer time before the message where anyone could share a prayer request or praise with the entire group and then we took the time to actually pray for them. The more I’ve experienced The Watershed, the more it reminds me of how the Acts 2 church might have looked and felt like.
