What We Believe

What We Believe

About the Bible

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that human authors were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of the Old and New Testaments.  Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.  
(Psalm19:7-11, Isaiah 40:8, Matthew 5:18, II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21)

 

About God

We believe in One God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Second Person of the Trinity. He came to earth as a man to reveal God to all humankind and to become the Savior of the lost world. 
(Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-14, Philippians 2:5-11, I Corinthians 14:3-4, Hebrews 1:1-10)

 

About Humankind

We believe that Humankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated from God through sinful disobedience.  As a result, humankind is incapable of restoring a right relationship with God through one’s own efforts or good work. 
(Genesis 3:1-24, Romans 3:23, Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

About Salvation

We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin.  Therefore, salvation occurs only when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sins.  
(John 14:6, Hebrews 9:14, Titus 3:4-5)

 

About the Christian Life

We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not just for self.  By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed into the image of Christ.  
(II Corinthians 5:20, Galatians 2:20, Philippians 2:5-11, II Peter 3:18)

 

About the Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ which is made up of all believers in Jesus Christ.  The Church is God’s primary means of reaching people for Christ and helping them mature in their walk with Christ.  Because the church plays a vital role in God’s purposes, God has equipped each follower with at least one or more gifts to serve Him. 
(Romans 12:6-8, I Corinthians 12:7, Ephesians 4:4-7, I Peter 4:10-11)


About the Future

We believe that God will physically raise our bodies and reunite them with our souls. Those belonging to Jesus will experience eternal joy with him while those not belonging to Jesus will experience an eternal judgment (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:24; Acts 17:30-31; 1 Corinthians 15:42-53; 2 Corinthians 5:8; 2 Timothy 4:1).
