What We Believe
We Believe in the Bible as God’s only inspired, inerrant, and authoritative revelation of Himself to humanity in written form (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
We Believe in ONE GOD, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7).
We Believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1), His virgin birth (Matt. 1:18), His sinless life (2 Cor. 5:21), His vicarious death as the only acceptable sacrifice for the sin of the world (1 John 2:2), His bodily resurrection from the dead (Luke 24:39), His ascension to the right hand of God as our intercessor (Heb. 4:14), and His future return in glory – first to rapture His church (1 Thess. 4:16-18), and second, to establish His Kingdom on Earth (Rev. 20:6).
We Believe in the sufficiency and the finality of Christ’s redemptive work, giving us free access to the Father (1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 7:25).
We Believe that Jesus died for the sin of the entire world and that anyone who believes and accepts His sacrifice will be saved (John 3:16-17).
We Believe in salvation – the new birth – as the only way to receive God’s gift of eternal life as a present possession (John 3:3, 5, 7, 16-17; Romans 6:23; 1 John 5:9-13).
We Believe in the resurrection of the dead – first the dead in Christ (the saved – born again – redeemed) to eternal life in the presence of God, and second, the dead without Christ (the unsaved – unredeemed) to eternal punishment and separation from God (Daniel 12:2; John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15).
We Believe in the sacraments of the church as established by Jesus Christ – The Lord’s Supper as a symbol of the broken body and shed blood of Christ as necessary to our salvation (Matt. 26:26-30; 1 Cor. 11:23-25) and Baptism by immersion as a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ and as a witness to the new birth (Matt. 28:19; 1 Peter 3:20-22).
