We believe the entire Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, eternal Word of God. God gave the Bible to us through men who were moved by the Spirit to write the words of Scripture. The Bible is without error. It can and should shape the way we live.
(II Timothy 3:16, 17; Hebrews 4:12; II Peter 1:21; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:89, 160; 1 Thessalonians 2:13)
We believe that there is one triune God, eternally existent as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They are all together separate and all together one. He created the universe, man in His image and is the savior of all people.
(Genesis 1:1,26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; John 5:18,23; 10:29,30; 1 John 5:7; II Corinthians 13:14)
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
(John 1: 1-5; Colossians 1:15-17; Matthew 1:22, 23; II Corinthians 5:21; Romans 3:25; Acts 1:9-11; 2:32-33; I Thessalonians. 4:16-18; Hebrews 4:14-15)
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him. However, mankind became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. When Sin entered the world, that sin separated us from our creator, a Holy God, and left man incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort. Salvation is by faith alone through grace alone and is found in Christ and what He did on the Cross. Both justification and sanctification are the works of the Holy Spirit in those who trust in Jesus.
(Genesis 1:27-28; 3; Romans 3:22-26; 5:8; 6:23; John 3:5, 6; Titus 3:5, 6; Psalm 8:3-6; Ephesians 2:8; Galatians 3:2-3; I Peter 1:2; I Thessalonians 4:3-8)
We believe the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son of God. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling helps us live for Him every day. The Holy Spirit connects people to Christ, equips them in their relationship with God, and helps them share Christ with people who do not know Him. We believe in the personal baptism with the Holy Spirit as received by believers “at the beginning.” We believe in the present day manifestation of all the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Church.
(Acts 1:8; 2:4; 4:31; 8:17; 10:44-46; Romans 8:9-15; 15:18,19; II Corinthians 1:21, 22; John 1:33; 20:21-23; I Corinthians 12:1-11, 27-31; 14:1-40; Ephesians 5:18)
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. It is made up of people growing in God, celebrating God together, connecting to each other, serving those in need, and sharing Christ in their community. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world. The churches mission is to love God and Love people by fulfilling the Great Commission.
(Matthew 22:37; 28:18-20; Mark 16:14-16; 1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Luke 24:46-48; Ephesians 1:19-23; 4:15-16; Colossians 1:18; Acts 1:8)
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to the earth one day to take everyone who believe in Him and entered a relationship with God as savior to Heaven to live for eternity. People who have not chosen to accept Christ will be separated from God for eternity and will not be able to experience Heaven but experience eternal damnation.
(John 5:28, 29; I Corinthians 15:20-23; Romans 3:20-23; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:6-8)
We believe in the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to the time of death. All human life is precious in the sight of God.
(Luke 1:15; Galatians 1:15; Psalm 22:10; 71:6; 139:13-14; Mark 8:36; Psalm 72:14; Isaiah 43:4)
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word and being baptized in the Holy Spirit, every believer will mature, be conformed in the image of Christ, and receive power to be a witness in this world. Our life should show Christ.
(Matthew 16:24-26; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:29; Galatians 2:20, 5:24-25)
We believe that marriage and family are institutions ordained by the Lord God Himself from the very beginning of human history and these are sacred institutions. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Any other definition of marriage is contrary to the clear teachings of the Holy Bible and hence against the expressed will of God.
(Genesis 1:27-28; 2:20b-24; Corinthians 7:2; Hebrews 13:4)
We believe that unity regarding the foundational doctrines clearly taught in the Holy Bible is absolutely essential. At the same time we also affirm that we must accept one another in the love of Jesus recognizing that there are different styles and expressions of worship. All the members of the Body do not look alike. Together, we are the Body of Christ, called to build the Kingdom in harmony and agape love.
(John 17:11; Romans 12:1-13; 14:1-23; Corinthians 12:4-6; 27-28; Ephesians 4:1-6)
We believe the two scriptural ordinances of a New Testament church are water baptism and communion. We follow our Lord’s command to give public evidence of our salvation with baptism by water and faithfully remember Christ’s cleansing blood and broken body with the elements of Holy Communion. And while water baptism and Holy Communion are not required for salvation, they are Biblical commands that demonstrate your faith in Christ and obedience to Him.
(Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41, 8:12-13, 16:30-33; Ephesians 2:8-9; Matthew 26:26-29, Luke 22:14-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-30)
