Our Beliefs

The Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God.  It is our doctrinal authority and our compass for life.

(II Timothy 3:15-17)


God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our father in creation, as Jesus Christ the Son of God in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit in regeneration. Jesus Christ was God manifested in flesh. He was both God and man.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16)


Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

(Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)


The Gospel

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel through repentance (death to sin), water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues (resurrection).

(I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Acts 10:43-48; Acts 19:1-6; Romans 6:3-4)


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, operate in the church today.

(Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10)


The Future

Jesus Christ will return for His church, and there will be a final resurrection and final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death.

(I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15)
