WHAT WE BELIEVE

About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. All things were created by, through and for God. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

 Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19;

1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14


About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Word become flesh. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was fully God and fully Human. Born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless perfect life and by that perfect life offered the perfect sacrifice upon the cross to satisfy the debt of sin. He arose on the third day, demonstrating his power over sin and death. He has ascended to heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father awaiting His triumphant return. He is THE Way, THE Truth and THE Life for all!

 Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30;

Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4;

Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13


About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Great Comforter, co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. The Holy Spirit convicts each believer to repent and be Holy by obeying Jesus commands. He provides the Christian with the power and authority, through spiritual gifting, to carry out the great commission and build up the body, which is the Church.

About the Bible

The Bible, as originally written, is God breathed, Spirit written, inerrant, the authoritative, and living Word of God. The Scripture is useful in teaching, correcting, and training those in Christ. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, it transforms believers from fleshly living to living by the Spirit. The Word also works in the lost, calling them to Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13;

Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5


About Salvation

Salvation is a gracious gift of faith alone. For man has sinned and fallen out of the grace of God. The gift of salvation and reconciliation comes from Jesus’ saving work at the cross and resurrection. The gift is offered to all if they will repent, believe, and accept the gift of Christ.

Eph 2:8; Rom 6:23; John 3:14-16; Rom 3:23; Acts 3:23; John 14:6; Acts 2:38; Titus 3:5


About Baptism

Is the bodily obedience of the believer to God’s authority. It is our public confession and participation in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. At the time of baptism, the believer receives the gift of the Holy Spirit. Baptism is imparted by way of full immersion of the believer into the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Romans 6:1-8, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 2:38

About Eternity

Eternity has to do with the life we live now. Eternity has two options, eternal salvation through Jesus Christ or eternal separation in the pit of fire. Therefore, it is important to accept the gift of salvation now and live in relationship with Christ.

John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18;

Revelation 20:15; 1 Cor. 2:7-9
