Beliefs

WE BELIEVE:

In essentials (where the Bible speaks) - unity;  in opinions (where the Bible does not speak) - liberty;  in all things - Christian love.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is without error.  The Bible serves as our only prescription for acceptable faith and its practical application in our lives.

God has always existed, is the creator of all things and holds all authority in Heaven and on Earth.

The Godhead exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He came into the world as a human and lived among us.  He went to the cross for every person's sin, died, was buried in a tomb and was raised from the dead after three days.  He is the head of the Church and is coming back for all who believe.  He is the reason for our hope!

The Holy Spirit lives within each Christian to enable and empower transformation into completely committed followers of Christ.

The opportunity of Salvation comes by grace, given by God.  Every person is a sinner and every person can receive forgiveness of their sins, and eternal life if they will:

1.   Believe that Jesus is the Christ. (John 3:36)
2.  Confess that belief. (Romans 10:9)
3.  Trust that Jesus can provide eternal life. (John 12:36)
4.  Repent and turn from sin. (Acts 17:30)
5.  Commit to living obediently in accordance with God's Word. (1 John 4:6)
6.  Be baptized (by immersion in water) into Christ. (Acts 2:38)

There is only one Church (Body of Christ).  It is comprised of every person that has received salvation.  It has been commissioned by God to share the love of Jesus with the world, to teach the ways of God, and to perpetuate the growth of the Kingdom of God from one generation to the next until Christ returns.
