Our Beliefs at TMC


What we believe shapes how we see the world. The beliefs you will find on this page are beliefs that we hold as absolute truth at TMC. These beliefs shape all of our other beliefs. Often times when you hear that a church is Non-Denominational you can become confused by what they believe. If you have questions about some of our other beliefs, email us at info@movementchurchtn.com.

The scriptures are true, authoritative, and sufficient

There is only one God

(Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 46:9-10; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6)
The Father is God.  The Son is God.  The Holy Spirit is God.  The Father is neither the Son nor the Holy Spirit.  The Son is neither the Father nor the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is neither the Father nor the Son.
I am, along with all of humanity (Jesus excluded), by birth and action a sinner
(Genesis 1:26; Psalm 45:6-7; Psalm 110:1; Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 28:17-20; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6)
(Genesis 6:5; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; 5:8; 12-21; 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3)
.The deserved penalty for sin is death, both physical and spiritual.
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human.
(Genesis 2:15-17; Genesis 3:19; Romans 5:12; 6:23;
James 1:14-15)
(Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:52; John 1:1-4; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3)
Jesus Christ died as my substitute to pay the penalty for my sin 

Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead

(John 1:29; 10:1-18; Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 1:4; 1 Peter 3:18)

(Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-53; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34)

Jesus Christ physically ascended into Heaven and will one day physically return

There will be a future physical resurrection of the dead.  Those who trust in Jesus Christ alone will be raised to an eternal reward.  Those who have not trusted in Jesus Christ will be raised to an eternal punishment.

(John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 9:28; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7)

(Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15)
Only by trusting in the person and work of Jesus Christ alone
can I be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy
(John 3:18, 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Timothy 2:5-6)
