At Storyline, we emphasize intellectual and spiritual growth as the fuel for ministry and service. While we create a warm environment for spiritual explorers, we read, explain, and apply the Scriptures in corporate worship, holding to a conservative theological position.
We believe in one perfect, loving, all-knowing God who exists, has always existed, and will always exist as the Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, our Helper. We believe that They are equal in power and deserve from us equal worship, love, confidence, and obedience from us. (See Genesis 1:1,26,27;3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, I Peter 1:2 and 2 Corinthians 13:14)
We believe that God opens our eyes to who He is through creation, the Bible, and Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible, all of it, is the very word of God. Written through human authors, the Bible is entirely true and the only unfailing guide to life – past, present, and future. Because of this, we choose to believe what it teaches, strive to obey what it commands, and determine to trust in all that it promises. (See 2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 119:105, 160; Psalm 12:6 and Proverbs 30:5)
We believe that God created everything – all the heavens and all the earth – through his spoken word. We believe that He Himself created Adam and Eve in his own image, above all other living creatures, and that they are the parents of the entire human race. We believe that they were created, and for a time, lived in blamelessness and perfect relationship with God, but walked away from perfection by choosing disobedience when tempted by Satan. We believe that because of this original disobedience, all mankind is by nature impure and separated from God. It is only through the saving work of Jesus Christ that we can be renewed. (See Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6, Isaiah 53:6a, Romans 3:23, and Isaiah 59:1-2)
