What We Believe.
There is one God who exists in three persons – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the beginning and end of all things. He is the Creator of the universe and author of all life. All history moves toward Him and finds its culmination in His sovereign plan. (Genesis 1; John 1:1; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:15-23; Revelation 19:6)
Jesus, the Son, was born of a virgin and came to earth because of God’s love for humanity. In living a fully human/fully divine life He is both our example and victorious King. He died for the sins of His people. He conquered death and rose from the grave before ascending to the Father where He reigns with Him. He will return one day in power and glory. He is our Savior and Lord. He is the only Way, the only Truth, and the only Life. (Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-18; Matthew 27:54; John 14:6-7; Colossians 1:15-23; 1 Timothy 1:15)
The Holy Spirit was sent to comfort and reveal Truth. He equips, enables, and empowers believers to live out the ordained purposes for their lives. He is the fully active power of God at work in the world today. (John 14:15-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-16)
The Gospel is the good news of salvation and transformation for every man, woman and child. Having a deep love for the world, God the Father sent His Son, Jesus, to live, to die, and to be raised again so humanity might be rescued and redeemed from its sin. The Gospel is the only solution for this world’s deficiency. (Luke 2:10-11; Luke 4:14-21; John 3:16-17; Romans 1:16-17)
Salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and it cannot be found outside of His life, death and resurrection. (John 1:12; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-9)
The Bible is wholly authentic, fully trustworthy, and completely without error. There is nothing that can be added to it or taken from it. The Bible is the revealed word of God and is useful for teaching, encouraging, and correcting.
(Psalm 19:7-14; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Created in God’s own image, humanity is God’s crowning work in creation. Our primary purpose is to glorify God along with all of creation. Human beings are sinful at birth, and the only hope for humanity is found in the finished work of Jesus. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:3)
The Church is God’s chosen instrument to bring His Gospel to every man, woman and child. There is one Church of which Jesus Christ is the head. The Church is made up of every person who places their trust in the finished work of Jesus. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; Ephesians 3; Ephesians 4:1-13)
