What We Believe

We believe the bible is the word of God, supernaturally inspired. It is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration; and that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life. 2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21

 

We believe that there in one God, manifested in three persons, The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:26; Matt 28:19-20; 2 Cor 13:14

 

We believe God is the absolute and sole Creator of the universe and that creation was by divine command. Genesis 1:1

 

We believe God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for man, sent Christ into the world to save sinners. Romans 5:8 Eph 1:5, 11

 

We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life; He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. later He ascended to the Father`s right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers. We believe Jesus Christ is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth to set up His kingdom. John 1:14; 3:16; Matt 4; Heb 4:15; 2 Cor 5:21; Revelation 19

 

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, through his sacrificial death and shed blood, and has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Men are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of His shed blood. Rom 5:9; Gal 3:13 Eph1:7 Heb 12:4

 

We believe that salvation through Jesus Christ,with its forgiveness of sins, its importation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life-is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or mans effort and is of pure grace. Titus 3;5, Eph 2;8-9; John 1:12

 

We believe that a true believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his heavenly Father. John 10:28-30; Eph 1:13-14; Heb7:25; 10:10,14

 

We believe that those persons who die without faith in Jesus Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven, through faith in Christ, spend eternity in Heaven.    Rev 20:14

 

We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to become a disciple of Christ by growing toward spiritual maturity through the knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God and submission to the Holy Spirit, who indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of salvation. Rom 12:13; Eph 1:13; Eph 4:30; Heb 6:1; 1 Peter 2:2

 

We believe that every true Christian is to be a dynamic part of a local church since this is God`s primary context for spiritual development and community impact. Eph 1:22-23; Eph 3:10; Heb 10:25
