What We Believe

Broadway is a Christian church, which means we believe in Jesus Christ and try to follow the example of life He set for us. Jesus is God’s Son who came to earth to be our Savior through His life, death and resurrection. He died on the cross, taking our sin on Himself, accepting the punishment we deserve and setting us free.

God raised Jesus to new life, breaking the bonds of death and opening the way for us to inherit eternal life through our Savior. We are saved by God’s overflowing grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Broadway is an evangelical church, which means we believe in the good news about Jesus and are called to share that news with the world. The forgiveness of sin and the gift of new life through Jesus is wonderful news. It is the best news we have ever heard, and we want to share it with everyone. So, we invite family and friends to join us in following Jesus and to find the joy of salvation that fills our hearts. We reach out to our community to share God’s love and message. We support missionaries who take the good news across the US and around the world.

Broadway is a Bible-believing church, which means we believe the Bible is God’s holy word. The Old and New Testaments teach us who God is, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Scripture reveals what God has done and what He has promised us through Christ. The word is true and authoritative. It reveals truth into our hearts, and we seek to live according to the teachings and commands of scripture. We believe the Bible is the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine and conduct.

Broadway is a Covenant church, which means we are part of a larger body of believers called the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). We have several sister churches in the Rockford area and several hundred across the US.
