What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Starke Church of God by Faith 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.


We believe that there is only one God manifested in three persons, with God the Father being the first in the Godhead, eternal in existence, perfectly Holy in nature, and Sovereign over the universe.   (1 John. 5:7)

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. For He was born of the Father by the Holy Ghost, to the Virgin Mary, thus uniting the Godhead and manhood into one. He performed miracles, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, was resurrected and ascended into heaven where he is now engaged in intercession for us.
(John. 1:1-2, I Tim. 3:16)

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person in the Godhead, sent by God to dwell in the life of the believer to empower, comfort, teach, and lead them in the things of God.
(John. 15:26, I Peter 1:2)


We believe the Bible is given by Inspiration of God, inherently revealing the will of God and all things necessary to our lives and salvation. God’s word is the final authority.
(2 Tim. 3:16)


We believe that we are reconciled to God through faith in the atoning death of Jesus Christ and His shed blood.
(Rom. 3:24-25)


We believe in the Believer’s Baptism by immersion as an outward symbol of dying to the old life and being resurrected with Christ anew. (Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 8:26-40, Rom. 6:3-5, I Corinthians 12-13)


We observe the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper in obedience to our Lord’s instructions, understanding that the elements are not literal but representative of His given body and shed blood.                                                               (I Corinthians 11:23-26)


We believe in the resurrection of the believer and the unbeliever. The just to everlasting life and blessings and the unjust to everlasting punishment to the torments of hell.
(I Thessalonians 4:14-17)
