What We Believe

 

God

is made up of three distinct but united persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost who put us in company with love, grace, and intimacy with God.
2 Corinthians 13:14

Jesus Christ

is deity as established by three witnesses.

According to Isaiah, He is the ‘wonderful God.’ Isaiah 9:6

  • According to the gospel of John He is God manifested in the flesh. John 1:1; 14
  • According to words from His own mouth, He is the great ‘I Am’ of the Old Testament. John 8:58

God created man in His own image and likeness. Genesis 1:26-28
Man experienced death and separation from God as a result of his disobedience. Romans 5:12 
Man’s relationship with God has been restored through the shed blood of Jesus Christ—the price He paid for our redemption and the remission of our sins. Ephesians 1:7

Salvation

is the free gift of God for anyone who confesses Jesus as Lord and believes in his/her heart that God raised Jesus from the dead. Romans 10:9-10 
Salvation is available to us because Jesus became our substitute. Isaiah 53:3-5
He became sin so that we might be made righteous. 2 Corinthians 5:21 
He became a curse for us on the cross, so that we could be redeemed from poverty, sickness, and spiritual death. Galatians 3:13-14

The Holy Spirit

Salvation (the new birth) and the baptism with the Holy Spirit are separate experiences. The evidence of salvation is the manifestation of new and godly desires based on a new nature. The evidence of the baptism with the Holy Spirit is speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. Acts 2:1-4

The Church

is the body of Christ. Therefore the human body is a model for understanding our lives together as a church. 1 Corinthians 12:25
Every member has a significant place, function, and purpose in the body according to God’s design and pleasure. 1 Corinthians 12:18

Eternal Life

Jesus will return and all people will be resurrected, judged, and assigned to their permanent residence based on their response to the gospel.
Mark 16:14-16
Those who believe will be saved to live with the Lord for eternity. Those who do not believe will be damned and separated from God for eternity.
