IN ESSENTIAL BELIEFS WE HAVE UNITY
“There is one Body & one Spirit…there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all”
IN NON-ESSENTIALS WE HAVE FREEDOM
“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.”
IN ALL BELIEFS WE SHOW LOVE
1st Corinthians 13:2: “If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains — but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.”
Our Essential Beliefs
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal, distinct and are one God.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God and 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 reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides us with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
The Bible is God’s Word to us. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance & control of the Holy Spirit, wrote it. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God in heaven through His forgiveness and salvation. Heaven & Hell are real places of eternal existence. Once you are truly saved, you cannot lose that salvation. It’s maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.
We believe the Church is the Bride of Christ and the body of believers that we are called to gather with regularly so that we will give ourselves over to fellowship, worship, encouragement, accountability, service and the preaching of the Word of God.
