Our Beliefs

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to lead people to become fully-devoted followers of Christ.

GOD THE FATHER

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22; Palm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Corinthians 13:14)

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the son of God. He lived a sinless life and offered himself as a sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven. He will return again to judge the living and the dead here on earth. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; John 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is one with the Father and Son of God. He is present in the world to make men and women aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every person from the moment of salvation. He provides followers of Christ with will power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. (1 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)

THE BIBLE

The Bible is God’s word to us. It was written under the control, instruction, and supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for followers of Jesus’ beliefs and living. It is true in all that it affirms about God, humanity, and the world in which we live. (1 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 1:20-21; 1 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105; 160; 12:6;  Proverbs 30:5)

SALVATION

Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must receive it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness that anyone can be saved from sin’s penalty – death. Eternal life begins at the moment one receives Jesus Christ into their lives by faith. He is then our Savior and Lord. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)

ETERNITY

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; 2:25; 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 1:8; 25:46)
