What We Believe

CONVICTIONS of the well church


The following are the core beliefs of The Well- Boulder based on the foundational truths taught in the bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.

Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall
When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.

The Gospel

Everything we are stems from our identity in the gospel. We are all created in the image of God. We are all estranged from God, unable to be the full image of God, by our divine rebellion resulting in suffering and death for everyone. Jesus redeems us, through his death, burial and resurrection, to God's created essence and purpose for us.

The gospel is the culmination and crescendo of the story of God, incarnate in Jesus, the son of God, who redeems us from slavery to sin through his death, burial, and resurrection, conquering sin, Satan and death, to a life of freedom in the Spirit where we live for God’s glory. The gospel allows us to live life to the fullest by participating in the kingdom of God now through the Spirit by our faith in Jesus’ perfect, propitiatory, substitutionary sacrifice on our behalf. The gospel changes
everything. The work of the gospel will be complete when Jesus comes back to restore all things to himself.
