WHAT WE BELIEVE
God – There is only one, true God, who is the creator of the universe, eternally existing in three distinct personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Jesus Christ – Jesus Christ is the Son of God; He is coequal with the Father. He became man, lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days, ascended to heaven, and is seated in authority at the right hand of the Father.
Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son. He is in the world to make us aware of our need for the Savior-Jesus Christ. He lives in believers to manifest the character of Christ, and provides believers with power for holy living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance for life. He also gives Christians spiritual gifts, so they might serve the church and the world.
The Bible – The Bible is the inspired and infallible written Word of God. It is God’s word to all men. 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 truth without any mixture of error.
The Church – The Church is the primary method of God in the earth to disciple men and women, and to establish the kingdom of God in the earth.
About Man – People are created in the image of God, and are designed to reflect His character. Unfortunately, sin resulted in the fall of humanity and separation from God. Now, humanity is sinful by nature and by choice, and is in need of a Savior for reconciliation to God.
Salvation – We are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord.
Eternity – God created people to exist forever. We will either exist eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation, or eternally separated from God by sin.
Christ’s Return – On the “Last Day”, Jesus will return in the “Second Coming,” there will be a resurrection of the dead including the righteous and the wicked, and after judgment the righteous will be rewarded, but the wicked will be punished.
