Our Beliefs

Together we SEEK the lost, LOVE the hurting, and GROW believers to make disciples.
(Matt 28:16-20)

About God the Father

There is one and only one living and true God. God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of human history according to His grace. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude and actions toward all men.

Gen. 1:1,26,27; 2:7; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matt. 6:9ff; 23:9; 28:19; 1 Pet. 1:2; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 4:6; Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 11:6; 12:9; 1 Pet. 1:17; 1 Jn. 5:7

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  

Matt. 1:22, 23; Isa. 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Heb. 4:14,15; 1 Cor. 15:3,4; Rom. 1:3,4;  Acts 1:9-11; 1 Tim. 6:14,15; Titus 2:13

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He is present in the world to make men aware of their need of Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved.  As a Christian we seek to live under His control daily.

2 Cor. 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 2:12; 3:16; Eph. 1:13; 5:18; Gal. 5:25

About the Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

2 Tim 1:13; 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20,21; Psalm 12:6; 119:105,160; Prov. 30:5

About Human Beings

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.  When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Rom. 5:1; 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9; John 1:12; 14:6; Titus 3:5; Gal. 3;26

About Eternal Security

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.  If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it.  Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.  It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

John 10:29; 2 Tim. 1:12; Heb. 7:25; 10:10,14; 1 Pet. 1:3-5

About Eternity

People were created to exist forever.  We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.  To be eternally separated from God is Hell.  To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.  Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.

John 3:16; 14:17; Rom 6:23; 17-18; 1 Cor. 2:7-9; Rev. 20:15

About the Church

All who are saved are a part of God’s worldwide church, and those who are truly saved are to be joined to a local church - a family of believers.  The Bible calls believers to gather together to devote themselves to one another, to the teachings of Scripture, to worship, to prayer, to generous giving to the needs of others, and to celebrating baptism and communion.  The church congregation is to respectfully submit, support and follow its God-ordained leaders.  Its leaders are to guard, feed and lead the flock, especially in the work of evangelism and discipleship.  All this is for the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.

Acts 2:42-47;   Romans 12:9-13;   Ephesians 4:11-16;   Hebrews 13:17
