What we Believe.

What we Believe.

Springfield Christian Family is part of the Australian Christian Churches movement. We believe the Bible is God's Word, it is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives. We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely Holy. We be- lieve that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and ex- emplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
