What We Believe

About God
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

About Man
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is 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. This attitude separates man from God.

About Eternity
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist 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 eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.

About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

About Salvation
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. The only way man can be saved from sin’s penalty is by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness.

About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christ-follower from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christ-follower with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christ-follower seeks to live under His control daily.

About Spiritual Gifts
We believe that all spiritual gifts spoken of in the New Testament are for Christ-followers today. The Holy Spirit is very active in the life of the church and is evidenced in a variety of ways.

About the Bible
The Bible is God´s word to all men. It was 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 truth without any mixture of error.

About Discipleship
Every Christ follower is to be in-process of loving God with ALL of their life.  As the Holy Spirit reveals truth/insight into God’s will, each follower love’s God through their obedience.

About Serving & Partnering
Every Christ follower is commanded to ‘Join the Mission’ of Jesus!  This is done primarily through the loving/serving of others.  We believe that God desires a ‘partnership’ with each and every follower.
