Core Christian Beliefs

If you’re seeking a church in Ada that deeply cares about theology, consider King’s Fellowship Church. At King’s Fellowship, we are committed to a deep and thorough engagement with Scripture. We believe that everything necessary for godly living and holy practice can be found in the sacred Scriptures. Both Old and New Testaments are the inspired word of God, sufficient for doctrine, reproof, correction, and for righteousness instruction. However, these flawless scriptures have flawed interpreters (i.e., you and me). So we affirm these historic creeds and definitions as the necessary boundary markers for orthodoxy within the Christian faith.

Our Distinctives

These beliefs here are what shape the ministry at King’s Fellowship Church. Good and godly brothers and sisters around the world will agree and disagree with us on the nuances of these beliefs. But these three distinctives are what makes us King’s Fellowship. We attempt to integrate these distinctive doctrines into all areas of church ministry. 

Law & Gospel

King’s Fellowship is an Ada Church that aims to proclaim both Law and Gospel. The Law of God is the perfect stand for all mankind. The Law is good, beautiful, and faultless as it points us to the perfect moral standard. Thus the Law exposes the sinfulness of both saint and sinner causing them both to look outside of themselves for forgiveness and life everlasting. The Gospel (or Good News) is that the Law of God has been perfectly fulfilled in Jesus. Those who place faith in Jesus receive his spotless record. The Law says “do;” the Gospel says “done,” and our aim is simply to remind God’s people to rest in Jesus’ finished work.

Law and Gospel
Word And Spirit

Word & Spirit

King’s Fellowship Church is wholly committed to the convergence of both Word and Spirit, not simply as a theological statement, but as a way of life and ministry. The Holy Scriptures are the sole objective, infallible standard that governs our life and practice. Therefore we hope, by God’s grace, to be empowered with every spiritual gift listed in the Holy Scripture. We are devoted to growing in our knowledge of God’s Word and the power of God’s Spirit with reverence and order. This means we make room in all our services for the mature expression of spiritual gifts in order that the people of God may be refreshed, encouraged, and built up for every good work.

Sacramental & Incarnational

At Kings Fellowship, we believe that the sacraments are a visible sign of invisible grace. We believe that God’s Spirit is uniquely at work in the sacraments, so that the risen, living Messiah is really (though not literally) present to us in them. This condescension of God, and fellowship with God, is a true mystery that is more experienced than exhaustively understood. When we say “sacramental,” we do not mean to imply that the sacraments somehow regenerate us, rather the sacraments are present to empower the believer and remind the believer to live as our Lord Jesus lived. When we say “incarnational,” we only mean to have that mind in us that was in Jesus in his incarnation. To embrace an incarnational ministry, then, involves a willingness to relinquish our own desires and interests in the service of others. We believe that God’s good gifts in the sacraments empower us to do God’s good work in incarnational living.


What We Believe

This is not a list of doctrines you must believe to be a member of King’s Fellowship. There will be those who join this Church who will have differing opinions and secondary doctrinal issues such as male and female roles, gifts of the Spirit, Communion, and other various secondary doctrines. However, the preaching and teaching of King’s Fellowship will align with these stated beliefs.

We believe in the Bible

We believe that God has perfectly revealed who he is and what he commands in the Bible.

We believe in Jesus

We believe that Jesus is fully God and fully man. Through his life, death, and resurrection, he did all that was necessary to make salvation possible.

We believe in the gospel

The gospel is the good news that God saves sinners through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

We believe in original sin

We believe that, through Adam, sin has broken all humanity and creation, leaving the world in need of salvation.

We believe Satan exists

We believe Satan hates God’s church and is determined to crush it. Satan was defeated at the cross even as we wait for his final judgment.

We believe in baptism & communion

We believe God has given us baptism and communion to strengthen Christians’ lives and celebrate their inclusion into God’s family.

We believe in marriage

We believe the pattern for sex and marriage was established by God as he officiated Adam and Eve’s male-female union in Eden.

We believe in the image of God

We believe that all humans are equal in dignity and value, bearing the image of God from the moment of conception, regardless of ethnicity or gender.

We believe in the Trinity

We believe that God is a complex unity. There is only one true God, but he exists eternally as three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is fully God. Through his ministry, he points us to Jesus and empowers our lives.

We believe in spiritual gifts

We believe that the Holy Spirit continues to give Jesus’ followers all spiritual gifts to encourage believers and save those who do not yet believe.

We believe in salvation by grace alone

We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

We believe in the Church

We believe the Church is Jesus’ body on the earth. Her mission is to make Jesus known through preaching the gospel, caring for the poor, and serving our neighbors.

We believe in complementarianism

We believe that men and women are equals, created by God to fulfill different roles as coworkers in his kingdom.

We believe in heaven and hell

We believe that followers of Jesus will spend eternity with Jesus in his kingdom. Everyone who rejects Jesus will be punished with eternal separation from the presence of God.

We believe in Jesus’ return

We believe that Jesus will return to both restore creation and judge the living and the dead.

We Believe In The Five Solas

These five statements of the Protestant Reformation lay at the center of what distinguished the theology of Protestantism from the theology of the Roman Catholic church in the 16th century. Sola Scriptura holds that Scripture is the only inerrant, sufficient, and final authority for the church because it is God’s inspired Word. Solus Christus holds that Christ alone is the basis on which the ungodly are justified before God. Sola Fide holds that only through faith can a believer receive the redemption Christ accomplished for them. Sola Gratia holds that our salvation comes from grace alone, from beginning to end. Because of these things, the Reformers held to the final Sola, Soli Deo Gloria, that only God receives glory for our salvation.
