What We Believe

Click on a section to learn more about what we believe.

We believe the entire Bible is God’s word to all. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5

We believe God is the creator and ruler of the universe. We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men 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 and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14, 15; Titus 2:13

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also dwells in every Christ-follower from the moment of salvation. He provides Christ-followers with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under the leadership of the Holy Spirit each day.

2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have a right relationship with Him but became alienated and separated from God in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2

We believe that salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works, rather the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

We believe people were created to exist forever. Each person will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. Those eternally separated from God will be condemned to Hell. Christ-follower will be eternally in union with Him in Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.

John 3:16; 1 John 2:25; 1 John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 25:31-46

We believe God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ. Therefore, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and sufficiency of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.

John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5

We believe baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is the public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism is a symbolic, but powerful demonstration to the world that you are already a Christ-follower. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.

Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2: 8-9; Matthew 28:19-20

We believe Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all Christ-followers by Jesus Christ to remember his sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a statement of a Christ-follower’s faith in the atoning work of the cross.

Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:19,20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
