Beliefs

1. About God

We believe that there is only one true God who has revealed Himself in three persons: the Father, the Son, (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. He is the creator, sustainer, and controller of all things and can be known personally through Jesus Christ, His Son.

2. About Jesus Christ

We hold that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin, sinless, and perfect. We believe that He not only taught the truth and demonstrated the power of God in miracles, but also died on a cross as a payment for man’s sins, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and sent the Holy Spirit to guide the Church.

3. About the Holy Spirit

We believe that, by the grace of God, the Holy Spirit — the third Person of the Godhead –dwells in every born-again believer. He provides the Christ follower with a growing understanding of biblical truth, daily guidance, and the power to become Christ-like. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit and all of the Gifts of The Spirit are for the Church today, equipping and empowering believers to effectively strengthen the Church and to reach and minister to a lost world.

4. About the Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired word, the authoritative and trustworthy rule of faith and practice for all Christians. We hold that the Scriptures, along with the power of the Spirit, are God’s main means of guiding and strengthening the believer.

5. About Mankind

We believe that mankind was created by God in His image, to be like Him in character and with Him in relationship. A relationship barrier was erected when man chose to sin by rebelling against Gods ways. This rebellion caused mankind’s spiritual death and resulted in the complete separation and alienation from God. We believe that man in his fallen state is a sinner, lost, undone, without hope, and in need of a savior.

6. About Salvation

We understand that any person can become a new person in Jesus Christ with the forgiveness of sins, the removal of guilt, and the inward change of the heart, by believing in Jesus Christ.

We believe Salvation is God’s free gift to us, entirely by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, not by works or human effort. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.

7. About Eternity

We believe people were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
