What We Believe


THE BIBLE

THE BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD, AND THE UNFAILING AUTHORITY ON FAITH AND CONDUCT.

GOD

THERE IS ONE GOD THAT CREATED THE HEAVENS AND EARTH. HE EXISTS IN THREE PERSONS: FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT, WHO THOUGH BEING DISTINCT, ARE ONE.

JESUS

JESUS IS THE ETERNAL SON OF GOD, BORN IN HUMAN FORM. HE LIVED A PERFECT LIFE, AND WILLINGLY DIED ON THE CROSS AS A SACRIFICE TO PAY THE PRICE FOR OUR SIN. HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD, AND ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN.

HOLY SPIRIT

THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLS IN BELIEVERS AS A SOURCE OF GUIDANCE AND COMFORT. THE SPIRIT BOTH POINTS OUT OUR SINS, AND DIRECTS US TO CHRIST. HE EMPOWERS BELIEVERS FOR MINISTRY WITH SPIRITUAL GIFTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE STILL TODAY.

SALVATION

MAN WILLINGLY FELL INTO SIN, BRINGING ABOUT SPIRITUAL DEATH AND SEPARATION FROM GOD. MAN’S ONLY HOPE OF REDEMPTION LIES IN THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. SALVATION IS RECEIVED THROUGH REPENTANCE TO GOD, AND FAITH IN JESUS. IT IS AN ACT OF GOD’S GRACE, AND NOT WORKS.

CHRIST’S RETURN

BELIEVERS HAVE THE BLESSED HOPE THAT JESUS CHRIST WILL PHYSICALLY RETURN FOR HIS CHURCH. FOLLOWING THIS, HE WILL ESTABLISH HIS VISIBLE REIGN ON EARTH.
