We Believe

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, eternal Word of God.

II Timothy 3:16, 17; Hebrews 4:12; II Peter 1:21; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:89, 160

The Trinity

We believe that there is one triune God, eternally existent as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

(Matt. 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 5:18, 23; 10:29, 30; Psalm 139:7; I Corinthians 2:10,11; Hebrews 1:5-12 (cf. Psalms 102:25ff); Hebrews 9:14; II Corinthians 13:14)

Jesus

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

(John 1: 1-5; 20:28; Colossians 1:15-17; Matthew 1:22, 23; 3:16, 17; II Corinthians 5:21; Romans 3:25; Matthew 28: 5-7; Corinthians 15:3-8; Acts 1:9-11; 2:32-33; Romans 8:34; Ephesians 4:8-10; Hebrews 1:2-3; I Thessalonians. 4:16-18)

Salvation

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. Salvation is by faith alone through grace alone. Both justification and sanctification are the works of the Holy Spirit in those who trust in Jesus.

(John 3:5, 6; Titus 3:5, 6; Ephesians 2:8; Galatians 3:2-3; I Peter 1:2)

Holy Sprit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9-11, 13-15; 15:18,19; II Corinthians 1:21, 22; Ephesians 3:14-19; 5:18-20)

We believe in the personal baptism with the Holy Spirit as received by believers “at the beginning.” We believe in the present-day manifestation of all the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Church. (John 1:33; 20:21-23; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 4:31; 8:17; 10:44-46; 19:3-6; Romans 12:6-8; I Corinthians 12:13, 27-31; 14:1-40; Ephesians 5:18)

The Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. It is made up of people growing in God, celebrating God together, connecting to each other, serving those in need, and sharing Christ in their community. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world. The churches mission is to love God and Love people by fulfilling the Great Commission.

(Matthew 22:37; 28:18-20; Mark 16:14-16; 1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Luke 24:46-48; Ephesians 1:19-23; 4:15-16; Colossians 1:18; Acts 1:8)

Eternal Life

We believe that Jesus Christ will return to the earth one day to take everyone who believe in Him and entered a relationship with God as savior to Heaven to live for eternity. People who have not chosen to accept Christ will be separated from God for eternity and will not be able to experience Heaven but experience eternal damnation.

(John 5:28, 29; I Corinthians 15:20-23; Romans 3:20-23; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:6-8)

Sanctitiy of Life

We believe in the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to the time of death. All human life is precious in the sight of God.

(Luke 1:15; Galatians 1:15; Psalm 22:10; 71:6; 139:13-14; Mark 8:36; Psalm 72:14; Isaiah 43:4)

Marriage and Family

We believe that marriage and family are institutions ordained by the Lord God Himself from the very beginning of human history and these are sacred institutions. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Any other definition of marriage is contrary to the clear teachings of the Holy Bible and hence against the expressed will of God.

(Genesis 1:27-28; 2:20b-24; Corinthians 7:2; Hebrews 13:4)

We believe that God created men and women as sexual beings. Sexuality is an integral and beautiful part of creation. The Bible clearly teaches that any sexual act outside of marriage whether in thought, word, or deed is sin.

(Genesis 1:27-28; Matthew 5:27-28; Proverbs 6:25-26; I Corinthians 6:9-10,18; I Thessalonians 4:3-8)

Unity in the Body of Christ

We believe that unity regarding the foundational doctrines clearly taught in the Holy Bible is absolutely essential. At the same time, we also affirm that we must accept one another in the love of Jesus recognizing that there are different styles and expressions of worship. All the members of the Body do not look alike. Together, we are the Body of Christ, called to build the Kingdom in harmony and agape love.

(John 17:11; Romans 12:1-13; 14:1-23; Corinthians 12:4-6; 27-28; Ephesians 4:1-6)
