OUR BELIEFS
Bible We believe the Holy Scriptures, contained in both the Old and New Testaments, were written by men divinely inspired by God through the Holy Spirit, to be without error and to be the final authority in faith and life.
Isaiah 40:8; II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16-17
Godhead We believe that God is eternally existent, co-equal in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; John: 1:1
Jesus Christ We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, in His virgin birth, sinless life, He is true God and true man, and that He died as a redeeming substitute for our sins, was buried and bodily resurrected to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
Isaiah 7:14, 53:5; Matthew 1:23; John 1:14; Acts 1:9-11; Galatians 3:13; Hebrews 4:15
Holy Spirit We believe in the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity, whose present ministry is convicting us of our sins, and who indwells the Christian thereby comforting, teaching, and empowering them to lead a Godly life by means of the fruits and gifts of the Spirit. The fruits and gifts of the Spirit identified by God’s Word are given to believers as outlined in the Holy Scriptures and are vehicles through which God has chosen to build up believers and reach non-believers. No fruit or gift of the Spirit is more important than another, but all are given to work together in the body of Christ for God’s glory. All fruits and gifts are to be exercised in a careful, loving manner in accordance with Scripture and in submission to the authority of the church.
Ezekiel 36:27; Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17, 16:8; Acts 1:8; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; 1 Peter 4:10-11
Man We believe that man was created in the image of God. Man is sinful by nature and by choice.
Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12, 3:23
Salvation We believe that salvation is only by grace through faith, not of works, and is received by faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, thereby we become adopted children of God.
Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10, 13
Resurrection We believe in the resurrection of the dead: the believer to life everlasting in Heaven, and the unbeliever to the judgment of everlasting punishment in Hell.
Revelation 20:10; Matthew 6:20
Satan We believe that Satan is the author of sin, the cause of the fall of man, the enemy of God and man, and that he and his followers shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.
Job 1:6; Revelation 20:10; Matthew 4:1-11 Genesis 3:4-5; Luke 22:31; Ephesians 6: 11-12
Church We believe in the Church as the collected body of believers instituted by God, of which Christ is the head, that it is established for worship, discipleship, fellowship, and to reach the lost.
