Beliefs

god iconGOD

We Believe... that there is one GOD, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4 and 2 Corinthians 13:14).

 

the son iconThe Son

We Believe... in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, miracles, and death on the cross to provide for our redemption, resurrection and bodily ascension into Heaven, His present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory (John 1:1,14; Luke 1:26-38 and 2 Corinthians 5:21; John 6:19; Romans 3:24; Matthew 28:6; Hebrews 8:1; Hebrews 7:25; Acts 1:11; Luke 21:27)

 

holy spirit iconThe Holy Spirit

We Believe... He performs the miracle of the new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers at the moment they accept Christ. His role is to inspire, guide, convict of sin, give power to live a godly life, enabling them to witness to others and give them spiritual gifts for carrying out the work of the church. (Acts 5:3,4; Titus 3:5; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 5:18; Ephesians 4:30).

 

scripture iconScripture

We Believe... that the Bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit, is truth without error in the original manuscripts, and is complete in revealing the will of GOD. It is the authority of GOD to teach, guide, correct, train, and lead to salvation. The Bible is GOD's written revelation to man (2 Timothy 3:16 and 2 Peter 1:21; John 10:35; Matthew 5:18).

 

salvation iconSalvation

We Believe... that salvation is GOD reconciling humanity to Himself. Man was created in the image of GOD, but because of sin, was alienated from GOD. That alienation can be removed only by accepting through faith GOD's gift of salvation which was made possible by Christ's death (Genesis 1:26,27; Romans 3:23,5:8 and Romans 8:1; John 3:16-19,5:24; Ephesians 2:8-10).

 

sin iconSin

We Believe... the wages of sin is death, eternal alienation from GOD. The solution to overcoming the death penalty of sin is to acknowledge the need for GOD, turn to His Son, believe that Christ is Savior, and publicly confess Jesus as Lord. Once salvation occurs, it can never be taken away because Jesus promised in John 10:27-28 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand."
