Our Beliefs


We at Mazevo believe Scripture provides us a clear pathway to reconciliation with God.

Acknowledge that we are sinners.

“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” Romans 3:23

There are consequences for our sin.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

We are unable to bridge the gap between our sin and God's requirement of perfection, so God provides a way for us.

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

We must confess our sin to God and willingly accept Christ's sacrifice on our behalf as payment for our sin debt with God.

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9

We restore our relationship of peace with God.

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ…” Romans 5:1

Statement of Faith

The Word of God is at the core of our ministry. Read our Statement of Faith below.


We believe that there is only one living and true God, who exists in three distinct persons—God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three, the Trinity, are equal in essence and distinct in function (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).


The first person of the Trinity orders and directs all things according to his purpose and pleasure. He has created humanity to bring him glory and honor, through his grace. While he is transcendent, he is also actively involved in his creation—offering a life-giving and eternal relationship with us through his Son Jesus Christ (Matthew 6:9John 5:19-24Ephesians 1:3-62:1-10).


Jesus Christ is both the eternal Son of God and virgin-born Son of man. Fully God, fully man, He surrendered nothing of His deity during His earthly life. His sinless, sacrificial offering on the cross satisfied the Father’s justice, offering atonement for all of humanity’s sins, for all time. We believe in his bodily resurrection, His physical ascension, and His visible return back to earth to establish His earthly kingdom (John 1:14-18I Corinthians 15Hebrews 1:3Colossians 2:9Revelation 20:11-15).


The third person of the Trinity executes the will of God in this world through humanity, by leading, guiding, filling, teaching and convicting. The Holy Spirit is not merely an impersonal force, but is a person, displaying the qualities of personhood (intellect, emotions and will). He equips believers upon conversion by giving them gifts to be used for the building up of the church, and by bearing fruit through their yielded lives (John 16:5-16I Corinthians 12Ephesians 2:10John 3:1-8Ephesians 1:1Galatians 5:16-25).


We were created in the image of God, destined to enjoy an intimate relationship with God, fulfilling his will here on earth. But because of Adam and Eve’s willful sin in the garden, sin entered into the world, and has infected all of humanity. Therefore, because of our inherent sinful nature received from our father Adam, we are all separated from God, spiritually dead, and destined for physical death and an eternity removed from God (Genesis 1-3Romans 1:18-32Romans 3Romans 5Ephesians 2:1-3).


We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as the only sufficient sacrifice, offering the atonement of sins for all mankind through his death, burial and resurrection. While salvation is available to all, it is only experienced by those who respond to God’s gracious gift by faith apart from works. For those who do respond we are regenerated and baptized by the Holy Spirit, becoming children of God, given a new nature and placed into the universal body of Christ, making us eternally secure in him. As a result of our new relationship with God through his son Jesus, we are now called to a life of submission to the Holy Spirit, manifesting spiritual fruit, and walking in good works that God has prepared beforehand for us to do (John 14:6Titus 3:4-7Acts 4:12John 1:12Romans 3:21-26Ephesians 1:72:8-9Hebrews 10:10-12I John 5:11-13Galatians 3:26John 3:16).


We believe that every word in the original writings is inspired by God and is without error. The Word of God reveals God’s nature and will for all of humanity, and because of this it is to be the foundation of faith and practice. We affirm that while the Scriptures are accurate in all matters it was never given to be an end in and of itself, but rather a means to a relationship with God. Because of this the authority and teaching of Scriptures will have a preeminent place in our ministry (II Timothy 3:16-17II Peter 1:20-21Hebrews 4:12John 17:17)


For all who have placed their faith in God through his son Jesus Christ, they are a part of the universal body of believers known as the church. This placement of the believer into the universal church requires an association of the believer with other followers of Christ in a local assembly. The purpose of the local church is to lead people to Christ and to bring them to maturity in Christ. The members of the local church are to live their lives in humble submission to other Spirit-led believers, and to the God-appointed leaders of the church (Hebrews 10:24-25Acts 2:41-47I Corinthians 12-14Matthew 28:18-20Ephesians 2:19-22I Thessalonians 4:15-17).


We believe that the next great event in human history will be the return of Jesus Christ for his children. This is the blessed hope for all followers of Jesus Christ. While this event is a prophetic truth of Scripture, we acknowledge that the point of Christ’s return is not for the believer to passively await this event, but to labor with all of our might in the power of the Spirit to fulfill his will in our lives through righteous living, evangelism and discipleship. After the return of Christ, those who accepted God’s gracious gift of salvation will worship God forever in heaven. Those who did not will spend an eternity separated from him in hell. (Matthew 24:36I Thessalonians 4:15-17John 14:1-3Matthew 24-25).
