Our Beliefs

About God
We believe in one God who eternally exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

These three are co-equal and are one God.

God the Father is the Creator and Ruler of the Universe.

We believe that He is limitless in power, knowledge, wisdom, love, and holiness.

We also believe that He has revealed himself as the Father of the redeemed.
About Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

He is the second person of the Trinity and is co-equal with the Father.

Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life, and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross.

He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.

He ascended to Heaven’s glory where He sits at the right hand of the Father.

He will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.

He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.

He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.

He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved.

As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to all people.

It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.

It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
About Mankind
We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him.

We became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience.

As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
About Salvation
We believe that salvation is a gift of God to man.

Man can never make up for sin by self-improvement or good works.

Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty.

Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

About Eternity
We believe that God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ

The true believer is secure in that salvation and is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.

It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.

To be eternally separated from God is to live in Hell.

To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.

Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
About Satan and Spiritual Warfare
We believe Satan was created as Lucifer, and angel of worship, but because of pride and rebellion.

He was cast out of Heaven and became the enemy of God.

He is a deceitful, lying tempter whose mission is to discredit God, to drag unbelieving people into Hell, and to destroy the abundant life of Christians in this life.

We believe God created angels to worship and serve Him, but one-third of them rebelled with Satan and became demons.

Angels and demons are presently locked in spiritual battle over the lives of people.

Christians are presently locked in spiritual battle over the lives of people.

Christians are involved in this battle through prayer, fasting, studying, and obedience.

Satan and his demons will one day be cast by God into the Lake of Fire forever.
About the Church
We believe the Church is the Body of Christ

The Family of God made up of every Christian on earth.

It is expressed through local congregations of Christians.

It is a place where the Holy Spirit empowers Christians to use their gifts in reaching non-Christians with God’s salvation message, and to help each other grow spiritually.

The Church is led by the Holy Spirit through the pastors and elders He has established.
