We believe in God the Father, Almighty Creator of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, who humbled Himself and descended to earth, lived a sinless life, was crucified and buried, but rose triumphantly from the grave three days later. He ascended to heaven where He is seated at the right hand of the Father until the appointed time of His return to earth. We believe in the Holy Spirit, our Comforter, Helper, and Teacher, who empowers and dwells in all who believe in Christ.
Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; John 1:1-5, 14; Colossians 1:15-16; Hebrews 4:14; John 14:16-17, 26-27; Acts 2:32-33
We believe that we were created by God to be His beloved people living in an eternal relationship with Him. However, that relationship has been severed by our sin and the sins of our forefathers. As a result, death entered the world and we are now alienated from God and powerless on our own to restore the relationship that was lost.
Genesis 1:27; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:12
We believe that God’s desire for humanity is that we become reconciled to Him. This reconciliation is an unmerited gift from God, purchased through the death of His Son on the cross. It is obtained only through faith in Christ and there is no other name under all of heaven by which humanity can be saved.
John 3:16-17; Acts 4:12; John 14:6; Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 5:8
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105
About Our New Life
We believe that all who have trusted in Jesus for salvation are a new creation in Christ. The power of sin that once defined our lives and held us in bondage has been broken through the far surpassing power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. As a result, we are now able to live in victory, bringing glory to our God.
