What we Believe....

Beliefs 

 

~Scripture - We believe the Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired by God, is inerrant in the original writings, and is the Christian’s final authority in faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:16

~God - GOD

 

The Trinity - We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 6:8

Jesus Christ - We believe by miracle of the virgin birth that the Lord Jesus Christ, eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God in order to reveal God and to redeem man. He is the substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and arose bodily from the dead for our justification. He is now exalted at the right hand of God, Head of the Church and Lord of the individual believer, fulfilling His ministry as our Great High Priest and Advocate.

Matthew 1:18-23, John 1:1-3

Holy Spirit - We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of sin, regenerates and converts sinners, and baptizes them into the church, which is the body of Christ. We believe that He indwells, guides, instructs and empowers the believer for godly living and service, and that He seals and keeps him until the Lord comes. We believe that He bestows spiritual gifts upon each one. We believe that the believer has received one or more spiritual gifts so that he might exercise them for the strengthening and outreach of the body of Christ. The practice of any gift in any gathered body shall be in keeping with the Scripture.

John 14:16-17, Ephesians 4:30, 1 Corinthians 12:7

~Salvation - We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Anybody and everybody who puts their faith in Christ, repents for their sins by aligning their views with God, and trusts in the work that Christ accomplished on the cross are forgiven of their sins, accepted by the Father, and born into His family by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God.

~Man (Humanity) - We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that he sinned, incurring not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God and which is inherited by every member of Adam’s race. We believe that man is subject to the power of the devil and has within himself no possible means of recovery or salvation. Genesis 1:26, 1 John 1:8-10, Romans 6:23

~Christian Life - We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By ever increasing obedience to the Word of God, each believer should mature and progressively become more like Jesus.

~The Church - We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.
