What We Believe
WE BELIEVE that the Bible, as originally written, was God inspired and the product of Spirit-led men, and therefore, has truth without any error.
WE BELIEVE the Bible is the foundation of Christian beliefs and the standard for all human conduct.
WE BELIEVE there is only one living and true God, an infinite Spirit, the Maker and Ruler of heaven and earth. (Isaiah 46:9)
WE BELIEVE that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Also that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and Jesus and of the same nature.
WE BELIEVE that Satan is a true being not just a symbol of evil.
WE BELIEVE the Genesis account of creation (seven literal days of 24 hours) and that man came by direct creation of God and not by evolution. Also, that the creation was perfect and until man sinned there was no sin, disease or death.
WE BELIEVE that man was created to be in perfect relationship with God, but chose to turn away and as a result was separated from our loving Father.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit in a miraculous manner, born of Mary, a virgin, as no other person was ever born or can ever be born. (Luke 1:35)
WE BELIEVE that Jesus died once for all as a perfect sacrifice for our sins, and that He defeated death, and is now sitting at the right hand of the Father as our mediary. (Hebrews 12:2)
WE BELIEVE that if you confess with your mouth, and believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord you will be saved. Salvation is a free gift that we cannot earn. (Romans 10:9)
WE BELIEVE that a relationship with Jesus is the only way to heaven. There is no other religion, no way of life, there is no one perfect and all have fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
WE BELIEVE in a literal heaven and hell. “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” (Matthew 25:46)
WE BELIEVE that we have been called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. That we are to love our families, neighbors and enemies with the same unrelenting love that Jesus has shown us. That we are to go into all nations, and all people groups to share the hope that we have been given. There is no one too far gone that Christ can’t reach them. (Matthew 22:37-39)
