DOCTRINAL VIEWS

FOREKNOWLEDGE

Simple Foreknowledge is the idea that God knows everything, including future events, but this knowledge doesn't determine those events. Supporters argue that human freedom and God’s foreknowledge can coexist because God knowing something will happen doesn't cause it to happen. Instead, God knows the event because it will happen. The event itself is logically prior to God's knowledge of it. This is like seeing a shadow before the person casting it comes around a corner—the shadow doesn't cause the person to appear; the person causes the shadow. Similarly, God's foreknowledge is like seeing the foreshadowing of future events. This foreknowledge doesn't take away human freedom. If events were to happen differently, God's foreknowledge would reflect that. Another analogy is an infallible barometer predicting the weather. The barometer doesn't cause the weather; it accurately predicts it based on current conditions. Thus, God’s foreknowledge is like an infallible barometer of the future. It shows what the future will be, but it doesn't influence or determine it. The future unfolds according to the choices of free moral agents, and God's knowledge aligns with those choices.

THE SCRIPTURES

The Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God, written by authors who were moved along by the Holy Spirit. As 2 Timothy 3:16 states, the Scriptures are "God-breathed" (Greek: Theopneustos), ensuring divine inspiration. Additionally, in 2 Peter 1:21, it is explained that prophecy never had its origin in human will, but prophets spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (Greek: Pheromenoi hypo pneumatos hagiou). The original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, in which the Scriptures were written, are absolutely inerrant. An excellent literal translation faithfully reflects these original texts, maintaining the integrity and infallibility of God's Word. These original languages, along with a carefully restored critical text and a reliable literal translation, ensure that the Scriptures make no mistakes and are never wrong in any aspect they address, including history, science, geography, and geology. This unwavering accuracy confirms the absolute truth of its teachings and the divine guidance behind its authorship.

  • CPH believes in only one God who reveals himself as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. CPH believes in a single God who is both three and one; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, "one in essence and undivided". The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three "unconfused" and distinct divine persons (hypostases), who share one divine essence (ousia); uncreated, immaterial and eternal.

  • CPH rejects infant baptism.

  • CPH believes that each church should be autonomous, but at the same time, there needs to be a structure to carry out the great commission. (Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20; Acts 1:8)

  • CPH does not follow and man, such as Calvin, Arminius, Wesley, Luther, or any other. We follow Christ and God's Word.

  • CPH believes that all humans are equal in the eyes of God but that man is the head of the house and that only man is to lead the church.

  • CPH believes that we are to marry only in the Lord.

  • CPH believes that humanity is fallen, the good news is that Christ came to pay the penalty for sin on the cross. That penalty, now paid in full, means God offers forgiveness and new life as a free gift.

  • CPH believes that a true born again Christian's salvation is a path or a journey that runs from the moment he accepts Christ up unto his death or until Christ brings the last enemy, death, to nothing.

  • CPH believes in a real heaven and sheol and hades (eternal destruction). Those who have been saved will live eternally, and those who die without being saved will face eternal destruction.

  • CPH's viewpoint on death.

  • CPH's viewpoint on hellfire. What did Jesus teach about hell? Is hellfire a part of divine justice? Is hellfire just?

  • CPH's viewpoint on the human soul, salvation, ransom, reconciliation, and atonement.

  • The only way to eternal life is salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ. Works are an evident demonstration of genuine faith.

  • CPH believes that all people have equal access to God's revelation of truth through the careful study of the Bible.

  • CPH believes in the literal Second Coming of Christ when God will judge the wicked, righteous and the unrighteous. CPH's view on the unevangelized is found here.

  • CPH's view of God's plan for marriage and the sexual union is that it was designed to be "one man, and one woman, for life." According to God's Word, homosexuality is a sin, though not an unforgivable sin. The Bible’s Viewpoint of Homosexuality.

  • CPH believes that there are currently 41,000+ denominations that claim to be Christian and most are false. Members come into the church personally, individually, and freely. No one is "born into the church." Only those who have personal faith in Christ comprise the true church in the eyes of God, and only those should be counted as members of the church.
