THE BIBLE – God wrote the book
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16
GOD – God is great
We believe in one God, existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.
Genesis 1:1, 26
JESUS CHRIST – God became man
Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into right relationship wtih God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitute for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection.
John 1:1, 14
HOLY SPIRIT – God is always present (Spirit Form of God)
We believe that the Holy Spirit was sent into the world by the Father and the Son to apply to mankind the saving work of Christ.
MAN – God’s image bearers
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.
Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:23
SALVATION – God’s only way
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that He rose victoriously from the grave; all those who accept His gift of salvation by faith alone will be saved.
THE CHURCH – God’s design for community
We believe that there is one family of God, comprised of all those who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We believe that the Scripture teaches His children to gather together in local assemblies, called Churches.
JESUS’ RETURN – God is coming back
We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
ETERNITY – Somewhere forever
Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
