We exist to share the hope of
Jesus with our world,

WHAT WE BELIEVE
 
 
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
 
Jesus’ commission to His followers – Matthew 28:18-20
 

ABOUT GOD

There is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  God is the creator and sustainer of the universe and everything in it.  Genesis 1; Psalm 90:2; John 1:1; 1 Timothy 2:5; 1 John 4:13; Philippians 2:11; Revelation 1:8

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is one with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ is our Savior, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for all sin, and was raised from the grave after three days to show His defeat of sin and death.  He ascended into Heaven and will one day return again.  Isaiah 53:5; Acts 4:12; Hebrews 13:8; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Matthew 1:22-23

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is one with God the Father, and Jesus Christ.  Those who accept Christ as their Savior, and are baptized, will receive the Holy Spirit.    The Holy Spirit is given to Christians and provides guidance in living, and understanding of the Bible, and prayerfully intercedes for them.  John 14:26; Romans 5:5; Romans 15:13; Acts 2:38

ABOUT THE BIBLE

Our foundation is based upon the Bible as our one and only authority on Christian beliefs, and as a guide to living.  The Bible is inspired by God, unchanging; without error; given to man so that we may know and understand the truth of God and His love.   As a church body, we seek to follow the patterns of the church in the New Testament. John 1:1; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 1:22

ABOUT SALVATION

Salvation is not something that can be purchased or earned.  It is a free gift from God provided by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross; God’s amazing grace.  We respond to God’s offer of grace through believing in Jesus, confessing their belief in Jesus as their savior, repentance of sin, and baptism by immersion.  John 3:16; Romans 10:9; 2 Corinthians 7:10; Acts 22:16
 
ABOUT THE CHURCH
Jesus Christ is building a community of people who are called out to seek the lost, save sinners, serve the needy and send out transformed people to live as Jesus lived. The local church is led by a group of spiritual leaders (elders) who equip the people to love God and love others with their Spirit-enabled gifts, until Jesus returns. Matthew 16:16-18; 28:18-20; Acts 2:42-47; Ephesians 4:1-16; 1 Timothy 3:1-8; 1 John 2:6
