What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

GOD

We believe there is one God who is the Creator and the Ruler of the universe (Genesis 1:1). He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, in his virgin birth (Matthew 1:23), his sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26), his atoning death on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3), his resurrection on the third day (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4), his exaltation to the right hand of the Father (Hebrews. 1:3), and that He will return again to reign as Lord of Lords (Acts 1:11; 1 Timothy 6:13-16).

The Bible

The Bible is God's words to us and reveals His character. It was written by human authors, over thousands of years, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the supreme source of truth for living and is an infallible guide in all matters of faith and conduct.

Humanity

All humanity was created in God's image and likeness and to be like Him in character. Because humans (Adam & Eve), rebelled against God, everyone is now born with a selfish nature that causes us to sin and be disobedient towards God. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, we all still fall short of God's expectations for our lives and are unable to save ourselves from God's judgment.

Salvation

God, through Jesus' life and death, offers us the gift of undeserved forgiveness. If we repent of our sins and believe and confess that Jesus is Lord, and receive God's free gift of salvation, we are reconciled to God.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit that empowers each Christian to live a godly life (Romans 8:11). The body of each believer is a temple in which the Holy Spirit is present (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Therefore, every believer must foster a life of being filled with the Spirit, which is both an initial and an ongoing experience for Christians (Ephesians 5:18). The Holy Spirit provides the Christian with the power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, guidance in doing what is right, and spiritual gifts to edify the church.

The Church

The Church is the Body of Christ. It is a living, spiritual organism comprised of all followers of Jesus, worldwide.

The Sacraments

Jesus committed to the Church two sacraments: Baptism and Communion. Through Baptism, every follower of Jesus publicly demonstrates their faith in Christ's death and resurrection by being baptized in water. It is through Communion that we remember the suffering and death of Jesus and proclaim his death and resurrection until he returns.
