What We Believe

About God: We are a Christ-Centered church that is dedicated to loving God with all our heart, mind and soul and to loving our neighbor as ourselves.

We believe there is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. He is both God and man. (Deut 6:4; Eph 4:4-6; Col 2:9; 1 Tim 3:16)

About Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the 2nd person of the Trinity. He came to earth to be born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and willingly died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sin. He will come again at the rapture to gather His children to dwell with Him for eternity in Heaven. (John 1:14, John 3:16, Rom 5:8, 1 Thes 4:16, Rev 22:12 )

About the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is the 3rd person of the Trinity. Dwelling upon one person at a time in the old testament, after the ascension of Jesus, the Holy Spirit was sent to all men as comforter and as a source of power, enabling them to carry out the Great Commission. He is still at work in the lives of believers today as are the works of the Holy Spirit as described in Scripture. (Judges 3:10, John 16:7, John 15:26, Acts 2, 1 Cor 3:16 )

About The Bible: The Bible is the Infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (2 Tim 3:15-17)

About Sin and Salvation: We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Only through God’s saving grace and work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed. (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Eph 2:8-9)

About the Gospel: The saving Gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the Gospel (2 Thess 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). (1 Cor 15:1-4; Acts 2:4; 37-39; Romans 6:3-4)

About Christian Living: As Christians, we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10)

About the Future: Jesus Christ is coming again for His Church. The righteous will spend eternity with Christ in Heaven and the unrighteous separation from Christ in Hell. (1 Thes 4:16-17; Rev 20:11-15)
