What We Believe
The Creator God
There is one God and Creator the maker of heaven and earth who exists eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
(John 10:30, John 14:26, 2 Peter 1:5-11)
The Triune God
God, Himself is a unified and completely integrated whole who is infinitely perfect in all of His attributes which includes, but is not limited to, Love, Justice, Holiness, and Wisdom. It is God Himself, in His Whole being, whom we are to seek to know and to love.
(Isaiah 46:9-10, Psalm 90:2, Acts 17:28)
God is love and God loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted.
(Psalm 68:5,6; 1 John 4:16)
The Bible is the inspired and empowered Word of God, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative. It is the absolute standard of Truth, total Truth and is authored by God.
(2 Timothy 3:16 & 17, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
The Fall of Humankind
God created humankind (men and women) in His image. Sin entered the world through disobedience and separates us from God.
(Genesis 1:26, 1 Timothy 2:5)
We all sin (miss the mark, fall short of God’s ideal) and as such we all have need of the atoning sacrifice of Christ who became the propitiation for our sins by being the one perfect and fully complete sacrifice, once, for all.
(Romasn 3:23, 1 John 2:1-2)
Salvation is God’s plan for reconciliation. It is the free gift of God and only comes through belief in and acceptance of the death, burial, and resurrection of God’s only son Jesus Christ.
It is essential for men and women to repent of sin and by faith receive the finished and complete work of Christ by confessing Him as Lord with their mouth and believing in their heart resulting in regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
(Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 5:1, & 3:24)
Taking on the Likeness of Christ
Sanctification is the ongoing, transformational and ever-expanding process of allowing the completed work of Christ, planted in our spirit at the new birth, to be developed and appropriated in our soul and body making us mature in Him.
(Romans 5 3-4, Hebrews 10:14, 1 Thess. 5:23, 2 Thess. 2:13)
Ambassadors of Christ
Believers in Christ or the body of Christ are called to the ministry of reconciliation and act as ambassadors of Christ in this world. As Christ’s personal representatives, our mission is to bring the good news of the gospel to others and teach them (disciple) about Christ and His message.
(2 Corinthians 5:20, Matthew 28:19-20)
Christian Counseling is best utilized by individuals who self identify as a Christian and/or follower of Jesus Christ and desire the integrated use of biblical principles that recognize and lift up the Word of God and Christ in all matters of life and relationships. Christian counseling, coaching, and/or consultation may not be appropriate for clients who identify with other belief systems or self-identify as either agnostic or atheistic. While Chrysalis Connections, LLC attempts to provide Christ-centers professional services to clients who request counseling, coaching and consultation services with a biblical perspective, such services are only provided at the client’s request and/or direction. Should clients seek or require assistance or support with religious, spiritual or other forms of transcendent orientations that fall outside the scope of the Christian faith, such clients will be provided with appropriate referrals sensitive to the client’s request.
