Beliefs

We BELIEVE

God has revealed himself to mankind through His son Jesus Christ.  He has eternally existed in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  He is the creator of all and Lord of everything.  There is no other God. Genesis 1, Deuteronomy 6:4, John 1:1-14, Isaiah 43:10-11, Galatians 4:4-6.

Jesus Christ is the only way to God.  He is fully God and fully man.  He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross to pay for sin, rose again after 3 days, ascended to heaven, and promised to return.  John 14:6, Luke 2, 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4.

The Holy Spirit  is the third part of the Godhead.  He is the comforter, teacher, counselor, and helper of the believer.  He indwells every believer when they place their faith in Jesus Christ.  As we are dependent upon, directed by, and energized with the Holy Spirit we see the supernatural power of God manifested in our lives.  John 14:15-17, John 15:26, John 16:5-15, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:4,5, 12:4-31.

Worship is not just when we go to church and sing.  It is a lifestyle by which we express the highest worth to God through our actions, words, and motives.  Luke 10:27, 1 Corinthians 10:31

The Bible is God’s revealed word to us as His people.  It is totally sufficient to provide us with principles for life and to lead us to God.  It is completely true and with out any error.  2 Timothy 3:15-17, Romans 15:4, 2 Peter 1:19-21,  Hebrews 4:12

Mankind was created by God, in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became separated from God through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort alone and needs to be reconciled to God through a relationship with Jesus.  Genesis 1:26, Genesis 3, Ephesians 2:8, 9

Salvation and Eternal Security We believe that every person is by nature lost in sin and deserving of eternal punishment and separation from God, but God in His mercy planned for and provided for everyone’s salvation through the death of His own Son.  Each person must accept by faith the reality of Jesus Christ, turning from sin towards God through faith in Christ.  The believer in Christ is eternally secure and released from God’s wrath through the redemption of his sin.  John  3:16; John 10:28, 29; Romans 4:24—5:10; Ephesians 2:8-10

Baptism is not a requirement for salvation, but is a step of obedience to Christ, whereby a believer is immersed in water to symbolize the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.  This identifies the believer as a follower of Christ – showing forth the believer’s death to sin and new life in Christ.  Romans 6:1-6; Matthew 28:20

Communion is the solemn act of remembering the sacrificial death of Christ by eating and drinking bread and juice, which symbolize the body and blood of Christ.1 Corinthians 11:17-34
