WHAT WE BELIEVE...

WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the Word of God, spiritually inspired.

WE BELIEVE in one God who exists in three persons: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • GOD THE FATHER – is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities.  These three are co-equal and are one God.
  • JESUS CHRIST – Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people 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 someday to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
  • HOLY SPIRIT – The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son.  He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

WE BELIEVE that salvation is a free gift from God; it is not deserved nor can it be earned through works.  We believe that we are saved by God’s grace, which we access by placing our faith in Jesus Christ.  Because we believe in Jesus, we will show obedience through repentance, confession of our faith in Christ, Christian baptism, and living a Christian life led by the Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE in eternal security.  If you have been genuinely saved you cannot lose your salvation.  Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.

WE BELIEVE in God as the absolute and sole creator of the universe, and that creation was by divine command, not through evolutionary process.

WE BELIEVE Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.  We will either exist eternally separated from God in Hell or be eternally in union with Him in Heaven.

“For God so love the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  John 3:16

“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”  Romans 10:9-10
