We believe the Bible is God’s Word. The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God and infallible in all they teach. They declare his design and plan for humankind and provide the authoritative standard for belief and conduct.
We believe in one true God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, and in his virgin birth, sinless life, death on the cross, resurrection from the dead and ascension to glory.
GOD’S PLAN FOR HUMANS:
We believe that all humans are sinners by nature and by choice and thus separated
from God and His purpose for our lives. We believe that every person can receive forgiveness and reconciliation with God only through repentance and faith in Jesus’ death on the cross as the all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins and in his victorious resurrection to life. We believe that eternal life in heaven is available for all those who trust in Jesus as Savior.
We believe that God gives the Holy Spirit to indwell all who believe in Christ to empower and transform them to live increasingly Christ-like lives evidenced by moral purity, ethical integrity and love for others. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit, along with its evidences, and the Gifts of the Spirit are available to believers today.
GOD’S PLAN FOR THE CHURCH
We believe God calls people to faith in Christ, gathers them into his living body, the
church, and equips each believer for ministry so his people can individually and
corporately love God wholeheartedly, love others authentically and spread the life of Jesus through the surrounding community through service and witness.
GOD’S PLAN FOR THE END TIMES
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will come back again as He promised and will reign on earth. History as we know it will conclude. Everyone will be held accountable for the choices of their lives. God will establish a new heaven and a new earth free of evil and pain, the eternal home for all who chose Christ.
