what-we-believe

 Final Authority Of God’s Word

We believe the books of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible constitute the Holy Scriptures. They are the inspired Word of God. (Matthew 5:17) 

Trinity Of God

We believe in the one living and true God who is holy, loving, eternal, and Creator and Preserver of all things. Within this unity there are three persons of one essential nature, power and eternity – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling power and fullness enables the Christian to live a godly life in this present world. (John 16:13-15) 

Uniqueness of God

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, and His sinless life. He died on the cross, and was buried, to be a sacrifice for our sin, and to reconcile us to God through His shed blood. Christ rose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven and is at the right hand of God the Father. (John 3:16)

Salvation by Faith, Not Works

We believe that Christ’s work on the cross provides the complete redemption and atonement for the sins of mankind. We believe each person must personally accept what God has made possible by repenting of their sin and receiving Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. An individual receives this new life by faith and is then enabled to serve God with the will and affections of the heart. (Romans 6:23; Revelation 22:17)

All Have Sinned

(Romans 3:23) 

Second Coming of Christ

(Revelation 22:7; Revelation 22:12; Revelation 22:20)

Literal Heaven to Gain; Literal Hell to Shun

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. We are saved by putting our faith in Jesus Christ, and those people will be resurrected to eternal life in a literal Heaven. Those who do not put their faith in Jesus Christ will ultimately be lost and eternally separated from God; shunned to a literal Hell. (Matthew 25:31-46)
