What We Believe

The believers in Jesus Christ who gather together as a church at Plano Bible Chapel hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith.

  • We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God without error in its original writing.
  • We believe in One God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of whom is equally God.
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, substitutionary death for the sins of men, and His bodily resurrection.
  • We believe in the forgiveness of sins by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and that all who receive Christ through believing have eternal life and become members of His church.
  • We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His own, later to this earth.
  • We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit, and His indwelling and working in each believer.
  • We believe in a final judgment of man before God.

At Plano Bible Chapel we strive to find a balance between Biblical Convictions and Personal Preferences. The above biblical beliefs are essential to Christian faith. There are also other biblical beliefs that we hold as a church but other godly people may view differently. Furthermore, there are personal convictions that we have individually for Christian living. This desire for balance requires that we recognize the differences between biblical convictions and personal boundaries.

When we understand as a church family the importance of a particular belief, thought, or preference, we’ll be able to agree on the essentials of the Christian life and better prepared to disagree on less important ones.  In other words, when we recognize the differences between convictions and preferences, we’ll be able to celebrate our life in Christ and cooperate as the body of Christ in a way that leads to unity and harmony (Ephesians 4:1-3).
