OUR BELIEFS

GOD

There is one God who eternally exists in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe and is all knowing, all powerful and ever present. (Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14)

JESUS CHRIST

God became man in the person of Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin being both fully God and fully man, lived a sinless life, and offered Himself as the perfect, atoning sacrifice by dying on the cross for the sins of all who would receive Him. He arose from the dead and demonstrated His power and victory over the law of sin and death. He will return to earth again to judge the nations, remove Satan and death and establish a new heaven and new earth. (Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; I Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; I Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13; Revelation 20-21)

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is fully God. He is called divine Helper, assistant, counselor, comforter and instructor and His work is to reveal Christ. He indwells and seals all believers from the moment of salvation. He provides power for Godly living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. (II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)

SATAN

We believe that Satan, the Father of lies, is a real created and fallen spiritual being. He leads a host of created and fallen spiritual beings called demons. Their sole desire and self-willed purpose is to lie, destroy, distort, kill and mislead humankind and thwart God's plan to restore and reconcile all humankind to Himself. (Genesis 3, 4:7; Mark 4:15; Job 2:4-5; John 13:2; Rev. 9; John 8:44; 1 Peter 5:9; 1 Corinthians 5:5)

THE BIBLE

God is the author of His Holy Word, The Bible.  God through His Holy Spirit chose and guided humans as the instruments to work through to write His words.  It contains no errors in its original form and has been preserved by God for us.  It is authoritative in all applications of life. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

MAN

Human beings are the special creations of God, made in His image. They fell, through the sin of the first man Adam and all human beings are sinners in need of salvation. (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 9:6, Romans 5:12-19; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22)

SALVATION

Salvation is God's free grace gift to us through faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3: 1-9 that to see and enter the Kingdom of God he must be born again by Spirit. We must surrender to God's grace gift of faith to receive his spirit. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1; John 10:28,29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10,14; I Peter 1:3-5: John 3:16-21; Luke 10:25-37; Luke 16:19-31)

THE CHURCH

We believe that a church is a local group of believers who have been called and assembled together by Christ to pursue and worship God through Jesus Christ. The church meets together for fellowship, bible study, prayer, preaching, encouragement, works of service and the observance of baptism and communion. The church has been called to carry out the great commission of taking the good new of Jesus to the world.

BAPTISM

Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christís command. It is a symbol of the new birth. (Death, Burial, Resurrection)

COMMUNION

Communion is a reminder of Christís death on the cross and victory over sin and death through His resurrection. This act anticipates His Second Coming. In addition the Lord asks us to examine ourselves and take rightly the Lords supper. (1 Corinthians 11:26-30)
