What We Believe

WE BELIEVE that there is One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father, The Creator of all things, by His Word all things were created and through the power of His Word all things are held together. He sent His Son Jesus to redeem mankind unto Himself. A relationship with God only comes through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin. He lived a sin-less life, and performed many miracles. He redeemed us by His atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He will personally return in power and glory. There is no other name given under heaven by which man must be saved. The Holy Spirit inspired the writers of the Bible, convicts the world of sin, teaches us all things, and brings to our remembrance the Word of God. (Gen. 1:26; Deut. 6:4; Isa. 44:6-8; Isa. 43:10; Matt. 3:16, 17; Matt. 28:19; I Cor. 12:4-6; John 14:23, 25; I Tim. 6:15, 16; I John 5:7)  

  WE BELIEVE that mankind is born into Sin because of the fall of Adam. Mankind is also perishing because of sin, which separates him from God. But God loves all mankind, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should repent. Mankind can only be saved through a faith commitment to Jesus Christ as LORD and SAVIOR, being regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (Gen. 3:1-7; Rom. 5:1, 12-21; Eph. 2:8, 9; Acts 3:19-21; I Cor. 15:21, 22; Gal. 6:14, 15; II Cor. 5:17)

  WE BELIEVE in the present infilling of the Holy Spirit to all believers who it is given to upon salvation thru faith in Jesus. The Holy Spirit’s ministry to the body of Jesus Christ gives power to live, witness, proclaim the gospel and to make disciples. The Holy Spirit gives us power to cultivate a Christ-like character through the Fruit of the Spirit and to build up and mature the church through the miraculous gifts and ministries in this present day. (John 15:8-10; I Cor. 12:13; John 3:5, 6; Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 2:38, 39; Joel 2:28, 29; I Cor. 12-13; Heb. 2:4)

  WE BELIEVE that the local church is a body of believers brought together by the Holy Spirit as the visible part of the body of Christ and His church universal. The church is responsible to faithfully proclaim the whole Word of God in fulfilling the Great Commission, properly administer the sacraments, and humbly submitting themselves to Jesus Christ, all for the glory of God the Father. (Matt. 28:19, 20; Rom. 12:4, 5; I Cor. 12:27; Eph. 3:14-21)
