our beliefs



The Bible

We believe the Bible is God's written revelation to man (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and is inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts (Isaiah 40:8).

 

God

We believe there is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4) eternally existing in three distinct persons (Psalm 139); the Father, Son (Hebrews 1:1-3; Colossians 2:9), & Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

 

Jesus Christ

We believe in the complete deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe, according to scripture, in his virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on a cross as the atonement for man's sin, bodily resurrection, and ascension to heaven. We believe that he will physically return to earth in power and glory one day. (Philippians 2:5-11; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

 

Holy Spirit

We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit who regenerates unbelievers (1 Corinthians 12:13) and indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life. (1 Corinthians 2:10-13)

 

Salvation

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, was alienated from God. We believe that Christ died on the cross as a substitute for sinners (Hebrews 10:1-7). God imputed the guilt of our sins to Christ (Romans 3:25), and He, in our place, bore the punishment that we deserve (Isaiah 53:6; Isaiah 53:12; Galatians 3:13). This was the full payment for sin. Only by the grace of God, through faith in Jesus Christ alone, apart from works, can a person be restored to a right relationship with God and be assured of eternity with God (Ephesians 2:1-10).
