OUR BELIEFS

 

 

 

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of God. It is complete truth and applicable to our everyday lives.

God

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is completely human, but at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with Himself.

The Holy Spirit

In order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to live in obedience to the instructions of Jesus. Therefore, we need to be baptized in water but also need to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, which includes speaking in tongues.

Man

Salvation is a gift from God to man.  Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin's penalty.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.  

Salvation

Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection provides the only way of salvation. By it we receive the forgiveness of sin. In order to receive forgiveness, we must repent of our sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eternity

Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God or in union with Him, based on his response to Jesus Christ. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are real.

The Church

The Church is a local community of believers unified through their belief in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ, obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the message of Christ to the world. The Church works together in love and unity.
