What We Believe

About God

 There is only one God. He is the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator  and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and  are one God.
Genesis 1:1,26,27; I Kings 8:60; Psalms 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 8:6 

About Jesus Christ

 Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal and one with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and was crucified on the cross as the  perfect sacrifice for the sin of all that would believe on His name. He  arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin  and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth  to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Isaiah  9:6; Matthew 1:22, 23; John 10:15-16; John 14: 7-11; Acts 1:9-11;  Romans 1:3,4; I Corinthians 15:3,4; I Timothy 6:14,15; Hebrews 4: 14,15 

About the Holy Spirit

 The Holy Spirit is co-equal and one with the Father and the Son of God.  He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus  Christ. He transforms and lives in every Christian from the moment of  salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living,  understanding of spiritual truth, guidance in doing what is right and  being a witness for Jesus. He gives every believer spiritual gifts which  are to be used in ministry as He wills. There is a “filling” of the  Holy Spirit that takes place after salvation. As Christians we seek to  continually be filled with the Holy Spirit and to live under His control  daily in order to bear the fruit of the Spirit.
John  14:16,17; John 16:7-15; Acts 1:8; Acts 19:1-7; I Corinthians 2:12; I  Corinthians 3:16; II Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 5:22-25; Ephesians 1:13 

About the Bible

 The Bible is God’s word to us. It is written by human authors under the  supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of  truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God,  it is the truth without any mixture of error.
Psalm 12:6; Psalm 119:105,160; Proverbs 30:5; II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:20,21 

About Human Beings

 People are made in the spiritual image of God. People are the supreme  object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for  good, He is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called  “sin.” Sin eternally separates people from God and can be overcome only  by a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Isaiah 59:1,2; Romans 3:10-18,23 

About Salvation

 Salvation is God’s free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ and  must be received by faith. We can never make up for our sin by  self-improvement or good works. Jesus Christ lived, died, rose again and  ascended into Heaven in order to secure salvation. Only by trusting in  Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty  of eternity in Hell. This trust is realized by confessing with the mouth  that Jesus Christ is Lord, believing with the heart that God raised Him  from the dead, and putting one’s life under the Lordship of Christ.
John 1:12; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 5:1; Romans 10:9,10; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5 

About Eternity

 People were created to exist forever. After death, one will either exist  united with God in Heaven or exist eternally separated from God in  Hell. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. The gift of  eternal life with God in Heaven is offered to every individual who  places faith in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.
Matthew 18:8; Matthew 25:44,46; John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15 

About Worship

 Worship is communion with God in which believers, by grace, center their  mind’s attention and their heart’s affection on the Lord, humbly  glorifying God in response to His greatness and His Word. Worship can  happen corporately when believers gather together but should also happen  individually as we walk out our lives daily in Christ.
Psalm 63:3,4; Psalm 100; Psalm 126:2,3; Psalm 150; Ephesians 1:12 

About Ministry

 Biblical ministry is relational by nature and is the action of God  carried out primarily through His people. The three basic priorities in  ministry correspond with the Christians’ relationships with God, His  people, and the world. Our first priority is to minister to God through  worship. Our second priority is to minister to God’s people through  nurture. Our third priority is to minister to the world through mission.  Each member has the responsibility to discover and use their spiritual  gifts in the body of Christ.
I Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 4:11-13; I Peter 4:10,11
