God

There is one true, holy God, eternally existing in three equal persons--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He has demonstrated His power, wisdom, and goodness by creating the world and everything in it.


Matthew 28:19, Genesis 1:1

Our Beliefs

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. After His physical death, Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven as the only intercessor between God and humans. He promises to personally return to earth to fulfill the eternal plan of God.


John 1:14, John 3:16, Philippians 2:5-11

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. The Holy Spirit leads believers to live a life of Christ-like character and bear fruit for the Father’s glory. The baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to apply the Bible to their own lives and to do great things for Him. The gifts of the Spirit that were evident in the early church are available, through faith, for us today.


Joel 2:28-32, Acts 1:4-8, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 8:14-17, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:1-6, 1 Corinthians 12:1-11

The Bible

The Bible was written by men under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is for all people, in every situation. It contains no error. The Bible is the sole basis of our belief system.


2 Timothy 3:15-17, Psalm 119:105, Hebrews 4:12, 1 Peter 1:25

Man

Man was created in the image of God, good and upright. By voluntary transgressions, man fell into sin. His only hope of Redemption is in Jesus Christ, God’s Son.


Genesis 1:26-31, Genesis 3:1-7, Psalm 8:3-6, Romans 5:12-21

Salvation

The central purpose of God’s revelation in Scripture is to call people into fellowship with Him. The salvation of humanity is completely a work of God’s free grace. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, God provided salvation for the spirit, healing for the soul and body, and forgiveness of sins. Those who put their trust in Jesus and set Him in command of their lives are forgiven and made new.


Ephesians 2:8, Romans 3:24, 1 Peter 2:24, Romans 10:8-10

Heaven & Hell

In this life, we have a choice to accept Christ or reject Him. After death, this decision is eternally sealed and those who have accepted Christ will be received into eternal communion with God in Heaven. Those who have rejected Him will suffer eternal separation from God in hell.


John 3:16, Romans 10:8-10, Revelation 19:20, Revelation 20:10-15

The Church

All who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are united with Him as members of His body, the one true church. Scripture commands believers to gather for worship, prayer, fellowship, and the teaching of the Word; to observe baptism and communion as established by Jesus Christ; to offer service to the body through development and use of talents, gifts, and outreach to the world. The local expression of the church is wherever God’s people meet regularly in obedience to this command. Church members are to work together in love and unity for the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.


Matthew 28:19, 1 Corinthians 11:24-30, Ephesians 4:11-16, Hebrews 10:24-25
