At LIFEchurch El Paso, we believe in the existence of the Triune God - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that it is our ultimate guide in matters of faith, providing us with timeless wisdom, principles, and teachings. We rely on its truth and seek to apply its teachings to our daily lives, knowing that it carries the transformative power to guide and shape us.
3. Salvation through Jesus Christ
Central to our faith is the belief in salvation through Jesus Christ. We affirm that Jesus, through His death and resurrection, provides the pathway to eternal life and reconciliation with God. By placing our faith in Jesus, we can experience forgiveness, restoration, and a personal relationship with the Creator.
