What We Believe

 

The Bible

We believe both Old and New Testaments are without error in the original writings, inspired by the Holy Spirit and the final authority on faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is God, that He was virgin born, lived a sinless life, made atonement for sin through his substitutionary death on the cross, was raised from the dead, ascended to heaven and will personally return to earth. (John10:30; 1Corinthians15:3-4; John14:2-3)

 

Salvation

We believe man is born in sin and that salvation is only through repentance and faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:12; Luke 24:43-44)

 

God

We believe God exists eternally as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, equal in nature, power and glory. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19)

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is God. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells Christians, giving them spiritual gifts for service, enabling them to live and witness for Jesus. (John14:6; Acts1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

 

The Church

We believe the church consists of all born-again believers unified by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. As such, the Church is a family that exists to love one another and serve all men as we grow into His likeness. (John17:20-21)
