We believe in the one eternal God who is unlimited in power, holy in His nature, His attributes and His purpose; and who possesses absolute deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 8:6
ABOUT THE BIBLE
We believe God originated and inspired what we call the Bible, and that the Bible is God’s message to humanity. We accept the Bible as the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, he lived a sinless life, He was crucified on Calvary for the sins of humanity, and physically rose from the grave. We believe that through his death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living.
Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:5-8; Matthew 1:18-25; 1 Peter 2:24-25; Hebrews 4:14-16; Acts 1:9-11; Ephesians 1:7-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
We believe that every person has sinned and stands in need of redemption and salvation, which is obtained through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again become children of God.
Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; John 3:3; Acts 13:38-39; Acts 4:12; John 3:16; Acts 2:38; Matthew 25:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9
We believe that following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, new believers are instructed in the Bible to be baptized in water as public evidence of that faith. Water baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to their own sin, the burial of that old life, and the resurrection to a new life in Christ Jesus. Baptism is a significant moment in our journey from a life of sin to a life with Jesus.
Romans 6:3-5, Matthew 28:19, Acts 22:16, Acts 2:38, Acts 2:41, Acts 8:12, Acts 16:13-15, Acts 16:25-33, Galatians 3:26-27
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and His accompanying gifts and the life characteristics produced by His indwelling, are the privileges of all New Testament believers.
Ephesians 1:13-14, John 16:13, John 14:17, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:39, 1 Corinthians 12-14, Galatians 5:22-23
ABOUT THE CHURCH
We believe the Church has been called out of the world to be a group of people who follow Jesus Christ. These Christ-followers, through the power of the Holy Spirit, will affect genuine spiritual change in their community and those around them. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to humanity. The church is one group of people made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:6-8
