We believe the Bible is the infallible and inerrant Word of God.
We believe there is only one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 43:10, Genesis 1:1, 1 John 1:5, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30, John 15:26
We believe Jesus Christ is both truly God and truly man having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, once for all, as a sacrifice for sin according to the Scriptures. Furthermore, he arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of God the Father, he is now our High Priest and Advocate.
Philippians 2:6-8, Matthew 1:20-21, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Luke 24:51, Hebrews 8:1, Hebrews 4:15-16, 1 John 2:1
We believe the Holy Spirit, the spirit of truth, is sent from the Father to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict people of sin and lead them to salvation. He indwells, seals, guides, comforts, instructs and empowers believers in sanctification for godly living and service. In short, the Holy Spirit is Christ in us.
John 16:8, John 16:13-14, John 17:17, Romans 8:13, Romans 8:16, 1 Corinthians 2:12, Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 1:8, Philippians 2:12-13, Acts 1:4-7, Luke 11:13, Romans 15:16b
We believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross for the remission of our sins.
Salvation is God’s free gift to all who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus lived a perfect life, and willingly took our sins upon himself. Through his shed blood, death and resurrection, he provides us the way to eternal life and adoption into the family of God.
Isaiah 53:5-6, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:12, Romans 8:15-16, Ephesians 1:7, Titus 3:5, John 1:12
We believe Jesus Christ will return and that He is the joy of all who believe. The hope and assurance of his return and judgment creates an urgency, passion, and purpose for every believer.
Acts 1:10-11, Galatians 6:9-10, Titus 2:11-13, Ephesians 5:26-27, 1 Corinthians 15:58, Jude 1:14-15
We believe the Church of Jesus Christ is made up of all believers who have been given and accepted a new life by the Holy Spirit—which is a life of holiness, humility and service. The Church is the Body of Christ and Jesus is the head of that body. Every believer’s primary responsibility is to demonstrate the love, authority, and life-changing power of Jesus.
Ephesians 5:23, Ephesians 5:26-27, Acts 1:8, Revelation 19:7, 1 Peter 3:15-16, Ephesians 3:10-11, 1 Corinthians 1:10
We believe that when we choose God, his fruits are also present—kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, love and joy.
We also believe everyone will receive judgment that will determine their fate. Having rejected God, unbelievers will suffer eternal condemnation apart from him (Hell). Believers will be received into eternal communion with God (Heaven) and will be rewarded for faithful service to Jesus in this life.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:10b, Revelation 20:12&15, 1 Corinthians 15:42-52
