What We Believe
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, 26-27; 3:22 || Psalm 90:2 || Matthew 28:19
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. The incarnation of Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus lived the perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose from the grave three days later to conquer sin and death. He will return to reign over the earth as King of kings and Lord of lords.
Matthew 1:22-23 || John 1:1-5; 14:10-30 || Hebrews 4:14-15 || 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 || Romans 1:3-4 || Acts 1:9-11 || 2 Timothy 6:14-15 || Titus 2:13 || Colossians 2:13-14
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He was sent to this world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ and to indwell the hearts of every person who invites Jesus Christ into their life. His primary purpose is to recreate the life of Jesus Christ in the hearts of Christians. He has been sent to empower us to live daily the Christian life.
2 Corinthians 3:17 || John 16:7-13; 14:16-17 || 2 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16-17 || Ephesians 1:13 || Galatians 5:25 || Ephesians 5:18 || 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 || Romans 8:26
The Bible is God's Word to us. It is totally-in every word-inspired of God. From Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, it is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is without error and is perfect in every area it addresses, including history, science, mathematics and His divine instruction to man, written by human authors under the inspiration of guidance of the Holy Spirit, it is the supreme source of truth to man and is to be our guidebook to daily living. It is the final authority of life for the Christian.
2 Timothy 3:16 || 2 Peter 1:20-21 || 2 Timothy 1:13 || Psalms 119:105, 160; 12:6 // 1 Peter 1 :25
You were created by the special act of God in His own spiritual image to be like Him in character and are the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning, man was innocent of sin and was endowed by His Creator by the freedom of choice. As free choice, man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan, man disobeyed the command of God and fell from his original innocence. This attitude, which the Bible calls sin, separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Genesis 1:27 || Psalms 8:3-6 || Romans 3:23 || Isaiah 59: 1-2
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. Salvation by God's grace without works of our own is necessary because of the sinfulness of man. Only by trusting Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from the self-ruled life as we repent of our sins and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith and therefore lasts for all of eternity.
Romans 6:23 || Ephesians 2:8-9 || John 14:6 || Galatians 3:26 || Romans 5:1 || John 10:29-30 || 2 Timothy 1:12 || 2 Peter 3:9
Christian baptism is the immersion of the believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as an act of obedience to Jesus Christ.
People were created to exist forever. Each person will either exist eternally separated from God by sin in the place the Bible calls hell, or eternally with God through forgiveness in salvation in a place the Bible refers to as heaven. Both heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence as the Bible teaches.
John 3:16 || 1 John 2:25 || Romans 6:23 || Revelation 20:15
Evangelism & Missions
It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ of every church to endeavor to make disciples for all nations. The new birth of man's spirit by God's Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. The evangelism and missionary efforts on the part of all rest upon the spiritual necessity of sharing the good news of the gospel with others.
Matthew 9:37-38 || Matthew 28:18-20 || Matthew 10:5-15 || Acts 1 :8 || 1 Peter 3:15
