What We Believe

1  God:  We believe that there is one God (Mk. 12:29), eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19).  God is perfect (Matt. 5:48)    eternal (Rom. 1:20) infinite (Psalm 119:96), unchanging (Heb. 13:8), all knowing (Ps. 139:1-6), all powerful (Gen. 17:1), present everywhere (Ps. 139:7), loving    (1 John 4:16b), gracious (Psalm 116:5), and righteous (Psalm 116:5).

2.  The Bible:  We believe the Bible to be the inspired (2 Tim. 3:16), infallible (2 Pet. 1:20,21),  authoritative Word of God; inerrant (Ps. 18:30) as originally written.

3.  Jesus:  We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God who, through his virgin birth, became fully human (John 1:1-2, 14).  He lived a sinless life (Heb. 4:15).  He came to be our substitute and by his atoning death (1 John 2:2) through His shed blood gives life to all who believe. Christ was resurrected bodily
(1 Corinthians 6:14), ascended to the right hand of the Father, and one day he will return personally  in power and glory (Acts 1:9-11).

4.  Salvation:  We believe that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ provides the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only those that receive Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and become children of God. (Romans 3:21-26; Romans 8:9-11 )

 5.  The Holy Spirit:  We believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict the world, to regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.  (Jn. 16:7-14;  Galatians 5:16-26)

6.  Eternal Life:  We believe in the bodily resurrection of all, both believers and nonbelievers.  Those that believe will be resurrected to eternal life and those that do not believe will be resurrected to eternal separation from God. (Revelation 20:1-15)

7.  The Church:  We believe that the church is made up of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
