We are excited that you would take a moment to learn more about what we believe here at Reverb. At the church,  you will find every culture, background and denomination. With that said, there are truths about God’s Word that clearly define our Christian Faith.  What you will discover here is how we share the Good News of Jesus (our faith) with the World in both teaching and practice.

Reverb Church has a “two-handed” theology, which holds essential doctrines in a closed fist and non-essential doctrines in an open hand. By this, we mean that some doctrinal stances are essential according to biblically orthodox Christianity (i.e., the Trinity; Jesus’ deity, virgin birth, sinless life, death for sin, and resurrection; the authority of the Bible; salvation by grace through faith in Jesus alone; etc.). Others are non-essential, because they stem from secondary issues which Reverb holds in an “open hand.” A person’s salvation does not depend on a particular stance concerning these secondary issues. Please take a few moments and learn more about our beliefs.

Reverb holds to the classic doctrines handed down throughout Church history centered in good news of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.   Reverb Church holds very closely to the classic protestant theology summarized by the doctrines of grace.  By “doctrines of grace” we mean that Reverb Church believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in the work of Christ alone, to the glory of God alone as revealed in the Holy Scriptures alone.   We believe these doctrines to be the underlying truths about the person and work of Jesus Christ, which have been historically held to by all orthodox believers in every generation.

We were dead in our sin, sons of disobedience, but God rich in mercy, made us alive together in Christ, grace through faith, not your own doing but a gift from God. Read Ephesians 2:1-10 ESV

We believe that the local church must be faithful to the content of unchanging Biblical doctrine (Jude 3). We believe that the local church must be faithful to the continually changing context of the culture(s) in which they minister (1 Corinthians 9:19-23). We believe that our mission is to resound the message of the Gospel in our neighborhoods and cities. We should also bring people into the church so that they can be trained to go out into their culture as effective missionaries.

We pray, evangelize, and do good works because we believe that the sovereign plan of God is accomplished through us, His people.

Jesus said in John 16:13 – the Spirit came to Glorify the Son, to guide and teach believers in the Truth. When Paul talks about “Walking in the Spirit”, “The gifts of the Spirit” and the “Fruits of the Spirit” – He uses language that leads believers to understand that the Spirit gives “gifts and fruit” not for us to feel good about our moral or spiritual conduct – but to humble us and empower us to proclaim the gospel and to love others more freely.

At Reverb, we believe that ALL Gifts of the Spirit are in operation today until the second coming of Jesus Christ. Where The Sprit of the Lord is there is freedom to obey for your good and God’s glory. There is liberty to love and forgive because of all that Christ accomplished on your behalf. The Spirit continually points us back to Jesus and the promises of scripture as our sure foundation. The Spirit empowers us to proclaim the gospel, make disciples and equips us to work together as the members of Christ body.


Complementarian Relationships

We at Reverb believe that men and women are inherently equal in that they are equally created in the image of God. We also believe that men and women have very distinct and different roles in imaging the truth of the gospel of Christ’s marriage to his bride, the church. In those equal but distinct roles, Men have the primary responsibility for servant-like leadership in both the home and in the Church. Similarly women are called to joyfully submit to the leadership of the man, as the Church does to Christ. Therefore in answer to God’s call for the Church to be filled with the Spirit and submit to one another, we hold that men bear the primary responsibility for servant like leadership and are solely qualified for the position of Pastor/Elder. At the same time we fully encourage woman to seek all possible opportunities to exercise their spiritual gifts at Reverb for the building up of the body of Christ. Women can hold any office in ministry from Director to Deacon only reserving Pastor/Elder to male leadership.  ( 1 Timothy 2 & Titus 2)

While men and women are different, there is nothing inherent in men or women that grants them either authority or submission. However, the Scriptures make clear that God designated that the marriage relationship—patterned after Christ’s own relationship with the church—be one in which the man and the woman each play distinct roles (Eph. 5:22–33Col. 3:18–20).


In addition, we have provided more information on particular beliefs below.

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16, 172 Peter 1:20, 21Matthew 5:18John 16:12, 13).

The Person & Work of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man (John 1:1–2, 14Luke 1:35). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished ¬our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious(suffered in place of another), substitutionary sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:241 Peter 2:24Ephesians 1:71 Peter 1:3–5). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry as Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9, 10Hebrews 7:25Hebrews 9:24Romans 8:341 John 2:1–2). We believe Jesus is coming again to judge the living and the dead (1 Peter 4:5Romans 14:92 Timothy 4:1).


We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; man is totally depraved and of himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Genesis 1:26, 27Romans 3:22, 23; 5:12Ephesians 2:1–3, 12).


We believe in the operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit and encourage our people to live so that these gifts may be manifest in their lives. (Acts 2:4Acts 10:44-46Acts 19:6I Corinthians 12:4-11) We also believe that God is sovereign in the bestowing of spiritual gifts. It is, however, the believer’s responsibility to attempt to develop their sovereignly given spiritual gift(s). We believe the Holy Spirit is given to every person at conversion and is the placing of the believer into the Body of Christ. We believe that it is evident through scripture that some experienced a supernatural empowerment for the furthering of the Gospel and we would encourage each person to experience God in all He has for us. It is important to note that while we embrace all these truths about the person and the work of the Holy Spirit, we also believe that particular spiritual gift(s) are neither essential, nor prove the presence of the Holy Spirit, nor are an indication of deep spiritual experience (1 Corinthians 12:7, 11, 13; Ephesians 4:7–8). We believe that it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to minister according to the gift(s) and grace of God that is given to him (Romans 12:1–81 Corinthians 131 Peter 4:10–11).


We recognize believer’s baptism and the Lord’s supper as scriptural means of testimony for the church (Matthew 28:19, 20Acts 2:41, 42Acts 18:81 Corinthians 11:23–26).


We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—coeternal in being, co-eternal in nature, co-equal in power and glory, having the same attributes and perfections (Deuteronomy 6:42 Corinthians 13:14)


We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8–112 Corinthians 3:61 Corinthians 12:12–14Romans 8:9Ephesians 5:18).


We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 2:8–10; John 1:12Ephesians 1:71 Peter 1:18–19).


We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 6:37–4010:27–30Romans 8:1, 38, 391 Corinthians 1:4–81 Peter 1:5). We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion for the flesh (Romans 13:13, 14Galatians 5:13; Titus 2:11–15).


We believe in divine healing for the body. However, we encourage and do not condemn medical science. (Acts 3:2-12Acts 5:15, 16James 5:14-15) We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accordance with His own will, for the sick and afflicted (John 15:7; 1 John 5:14, 15).


We believe that the church, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons (Ephesians 1:22, 235:25–271 Corinthians 12:12–142 Corinthians 11:2). We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:27; 18:22; 20:171 Timothy 3:1–3Titus 1:5–11). We believe in the autonomy of the local churches, free of any external authority and control (Acts 13:1–4; 15:19–31; 20:28Romans 16:1,41 Corinthians 3:9, 161 Corinthians 5:4–7, 131 Peter 5:1–4).


We believe in the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman and family commitment. We promote strong family values. (Ephesians 5:31-33Ephesians 6:1-4Hebrews 13:4Matthew 19:5Leviticus 18:22Genesis 2:24)
