What We Believe

The Bible

The Bible is inspired by God and is the only infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God. There is one God eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God; came in the flesh through the virgin birth; lived a sinless life; performed miracles; died for the sins of the world; ascended to heaven and intercedes for us with the Father; he will return in power and glory to judge all creation and to establish an eternal kingdom.

Sin

Man and woman were created in the image of God, were tempted by Satan, rebelled and sinned and experience spiritual and physical death. As a result, all people are born with a sinful nature and apart from Jesus Christ are eternally lost.

Salvation

A person becomes a Christian by personally receiving Jesus Christ as an act of faith (born again), a willful commitment to trust and follow Him. All who believe are assured that Christ comes into their life; their sins are forgiven; they become children of God; they begin a new life with Christ; and they are assured eternity in heaven. Salvation is a gift from God.


Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit indwells the Christian and is actively ministering in the world today enabling and empowering the living of a life pleasing to God; He gives gifts to every believer for the build-up of the body of Christ. All people will be resurrected, the believers to everlasting life in Heaven and eternal rewards; the unbelievers to everlasting death in Hell and eternal punishment.


Unity in Christ

There is a spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ; many churches but one Lord. The church is made up of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ and is to give praise to God, built up believers and proclaim the gospel.
