What do we believe about God?
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul, mind and strength.” – Jesus (Luke 10:27)
God: We believe in One infinite and personal God, who eternally exists as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe that God is the Creator, Sustainer, Savior and Judge. While acknowledging the unity of the Godhead, we believe the Father planned salvation, the Son accomplished salvation and the Holy Spirit applies salvation.(Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 40, Ephesians 1:3-14, Hebrews 9:14, 1 Peter 1:1-2, Isaiah 43:11-13, Revelation 20:11-15)
Jesus Christ: We believe Jesus Christ is the unique God-Man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross to make atonement for our sins, rose bodily from the dead and ascended to the Father’s right hand. We believe that Jesus intercedes for believers as their High Priest and that He will soon return as the reigning King. (John 1:1-18, Luke 2:1-20, Hebrews 4:14-16, 1 Peter 3:18, Hebrews 10:1-18 , 1 Corinthians 15, Ephesians 1:20-22, Revelation 19-20)
Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts men of their need for salvation, causes men to be born again spiritually, permanently indwells believers and He is the source of power and fruitfulness in living the Christian life. (John 16:1-15, John 3:1-8, Rom. 8:1-16, Gal. 5:12-26)
What do we believe about all people?
“Love your neighbor as yourself” – Jesus (Luke 10:27
Humanity: We believe that man was created in the image of God but because of Adam’s sin all men are now sinners by nature and by choice and are in need of salvation. We believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. (Genesis 1-3, Romans 5:12-21, Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 2:8-9)
CHURCH: We believe that Jesus Christ is the head of the church, which is His body, composed of all true believers who are to be the salt and light of the world. We believe that the church exists to glorify God through worship, ministry, evangelism, fellowship and discipleship. The mission of the church is to fulfill the Great Commission. (Matthew 16:15-18, Ephesians 1:20-22, Matthew 22:36-40, Matthew 28:18-20)
Salvation: Salvation from our sinful condition is a free gift from God to us. It is not something we earn or deserve. It is offered in grace and received by faith in Jesus Christ alone. Those who believe in Jesus Christ and call on His name are made right with God and given eternal life. [John 3:16, 14:6; Romans 3:28, 8:31-39; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:26-27; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6.)
Christ’s Return: We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. He will return bodily to earth to establish His Kingdom. Unbelievers will be judged and spend eternity separated from God in hell and believers will be rewarded with eternal fellowship with God in heaven. (Acts 1:9-11, Revelation 19-22, Philippians 3:20-21, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17)
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20)
Teaching God’s Word “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” – Apostle Paul (2 Timothy 3:16)
Bible: We believe the Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired, authoritative and inerrant Word of God. It is the final rule for faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, John 8:30-31, Hebrews 4:12)
Be excellent in our ministry & relevant in serving our community So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. – Apostle Paul “1 Corinthians 10:31
