What We Believe

You Are Loved
We believe that each individual, including you, is a uniquely-made child of God created in His spiritual image.  He longs to be in a loving relationship with You, however, this relationship has been interrupted by an attitude of disobedience towards God called “sin.”  Our own sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.  This relationship can only be restored through the repentance of our sins, believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submitting to His will for our lives.

Genesis 1:26-27 | Psalm 8:3-6 | Isaiah 53:6 | Isaiah 59:1-2 | John 3:16 | Romans 3:22-24 

What We Believe - You are Loved!
What We Believe - God is Alive

Our God is ALIVE
We believe in one eternal Living God who is just as active today as when he created the universe.  He has always existed in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  All three are co-equal and are one God.  God loves all of us and is completely holy.

Genesis 1:1 | Genesis 1:26-27 | Genesis 3:22 | Psalm 90:2 | Matthew 28:19

Jesus is Our Lord and Savior
As a church, we hold true to the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is both fully God and fully man.  He is the only One who can reconcile us to God.  He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as a perfect and holy sacrifice for the sins of all people through his death on the cross.  He rose again to prove His power and victory over sin and death and to empower us for life in Him.  He ascended to heaven and will return again as He promised to reign as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

The Holy Spirit Dwells Among Us, Within Us, and Through Us

The Holy Spirit Dwells Among Us, Within Us, and Through Us
We believe that the Holy Spirit is One with the Father and the Son as God.  The Spirit is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ.  He lives within every Christian from the moment of salvation and provides us with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  We seek to live under His control in our daily life.

The Bible is Our Firm Foundation
The Bible is God’s Word to ALL people.  It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable in our everyday lives and is the foundation of our beliefs and living.  It has proven itself time and time again and will continue to hold true until the end of time.

The Church is Vital

The Church is Vital
The Church still holds great power and significance, even in today’s modern culture.  It is much more than just a meeting place, it is the living, breathing, and moving body of Christ.  We believe in the necessity of believers to regularly meet together for fellowship, prayer, and the “breaking of bread.”  God has individually equipped each believer in the Church with spiritual gifts so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives and the Church while serving the community in which we live.

We also believe that our Church is a family.  We are here to support and encourage one another in our spiritual journey, regardless of the obstacles that come our way.  No one needs to go it alone. 

Matthew 16:18 | Matthew 28:16-20 | Acts 2:42 | Romans 12:3-8 | 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 | 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 | Galatians 3:28 | Ephesians 4:11-16 | 1 Timothy 3:14-15 | Hebrews 10:25 | Hebrews 13:1 | 1 Peter 1:22

About Salvation…
Salvation is God’s great gift to all of humanity.  We can never make up for our sin through our good works or personal improvement.  It is only by accepting God’s mercy and grace through the redeeming work of Jesus Christ on the cross that we can be saved from the darkness of sin and separation from God. (Ephesians 2:8-9).  Through this salvation, eternal life in right relationship with God begins.

Since it is God who gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, we can rest knowing in that this salvation is for eternity. We believe that our salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by our own efforts. It is grace and the keeping power of God that gives this security.
