What We Believe

What We BelieveWe believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God (literally God-breathed), inerrant, inspired, infallible, and the guide for all matters of faith and practice.
II Timothy 3:15-17

We believe there is one true God, manifested eternally in three distinct Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. II Corinthians 13:14

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, who possesses all the divine attributes and is coequal, coexistent, and coeternal with the Father.

We believe in His virgin birth, that He was God incarnate (both God and man), for the purpose of revealing the Father, redeeming men and ruling over God’s Kingdom. He accomplished man’s redemption by: His atoning death, through His shed blood and sacrificial death on the cross, By His literal, physical resurrection from the dead and His ascension to the right hand of the Father. We believe Jesus to be the mediator between God and man.
Mark 1:14-15, Hebrew 1:1-3, I Corinthians 15:3-8

We believe the Holy Spirit is the third member of the Trinity, possessing all the divine attributes with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the supernatural and sovereign agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ at the moment of conversion. The Holy Spirit also indwells, sanctifies, instructs, and empowers all believers for spiritual service. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who administers spiritual gifts to each believer for the purpose of equipping the saints and for the building up of the body of Christ
Acts 1:8, 2:4, Ephesians 5:18, I Corinthians 12:12-14

We believe that all that place their faith in Jesus Christ are placed by the Holy Spirit into the spiritual body of believers known as the church with Christ established as the head. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by the teaching and instruction of the Word, by building the faith of its members, by providing an atmosphere of worship, by providing fellowship, and fulfilling the great commission to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 10:25

We believe that man is a sinner and that the penalty for sin is eternal separation from the Father. We believe that eternal life is a free gift of grace bestowed upon each repentant sinner who responds in faith to the provision of salvation in Jesus Christ. Regeneration is instantaneous and is accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit. Genuine regeneration will manifest itself by righteous attitudes, edifying conduct, and good works to the extent that each believer submits himself to the control of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 3:22-24

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will visibly return to glorify His church and judge unbelievers. Those who belong to Christ will enjoy Heaven forever; those who reject His grace will experience eternal separation from God. Matthew 25:31-46, Revelations 22:12-16

We believe God has established a five fold ministry for equipping the saints. Ephesians 4:11-13

We will conduct our business and personal life in keeping with spiritual guidelines. We will not bring dishonor or reproach to the Name of Jesus.
Colossians 3:17
