What We Believe

About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three person…the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1;26,27; 3:22;Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

About Man

Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like HIM in character. He is the supreme creation of the Creator. Although man has potential for good, disobedience toward God (sin) has led to separation of man from God. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2

About Eternity

Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation in Jesus Christ. Separation from God is hell. Union with Him is heaven. Heaven and hell are real and eternal. John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46

About Jesus Christ

He is the Son of God and co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless life and was offered as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of ALL men by dying on the cross. After three days HE arose from the grave to demonstrate HIS power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

About Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin with self improvement or good works but by trusting in Jesus Christ. HE is God’s answer to sin and the way to forgiveness of sin. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2: 8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. His mission is to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He indwells in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He is the power that helps the believer to live right, understand spiritual truths, and give guidance in doing what is right. We must live under HIS control daily. 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16: 7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:1; Galatians 5:25

About The Bible

The Bible is God’s word to ALL men. It was written by human authors, inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is the ONLY source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Be-cause it is God’s word it contains NO errors or contradictions. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119: 105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5

About Baptism

Baptism by TOTAL immersion symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is a public declaration that you have accepted Jesus as your savior. Baptism doesn’t save you but declares that you have already been saved. It is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ. Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2:8-9; Matthew 28: 19-20.

About Communion

The Lord’s Supper is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember HIS sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread, wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. It is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross. Matthew 26: 26-30; Mark 14: 22-26; Luke 22: 19-20; 1
