What We Believe

The Bible is God’s word to all mankind. It was written by human authors who were inspired by God. It is the supreme source of truth without any mixture of error. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13)

God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1; Genesis 26:27; Genesis 3:22; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Philippians 2:6; 1 Peter 1:2)

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all humanity by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; John 1:14; Hebrews 4:14-15)

The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christ-follower from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christ-follower with power for living and sharing our faith, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing God’s will. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25)

Humanity is made in the image of God, to be like him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although we have tremendous potential for good, we are born sinners separated from God. (Genesis 1:27; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23)

Salvation is a gift from God to everyone. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works – only by trusting in Jesus Christ as our Savior can we be saved from the penalty of our sin. Salvation begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith. Have you started the journey?  (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)

Eternity, everyone will spend theirs in one of two places. The saved will spend eternity in heaven and the unsaved will sped eternity in hell. (John 3:16; John 3:15; John 5:24; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46)

The Church is the body and bride of Christ. It is a spiritual organism made of all Christ-followers. We believe the local church is the hope of the world. Its purpose is to glorify Christ by reaching all people and growing them to fulfill God’s plan for their life. (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 5:25-27; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 1 Timothy 3:15)
