What We Believe
We believe that there is one true God, eternally existing in three persons- Father, Son and Holy Spirit (The Trinity) and that He created all mankind to have a relationship with Him. The Son, Jesus Christ (the second person of the Trinity), is the only Son of God and was born of a virgin and lived a life on earth without sin- He is perfect in every way. Jesus voluntarily died for our sins and was raised from the dead to return to the Father and will return to earth to fulfill God’s plan. The Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) was sent by God and draws us into a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit works in and through believers and helps the believer to serve all mankind for the glory of God.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, completely true and without error. The 66 books of the Bible provide proof of God’s existence and provide us with insight into God’s character and His instructions for how we are to live here on earth. The Bible is our final authority. (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe that salvation comes by grace, as an unearned gift from God. This gift must be received by a change of heart and by accepting, through faith and trust, that Jesus Christ is our Savior. Jesus died for our sins so that we could be forgiven and receive eternal life. He is the only way for anyone to be saved.
Eternal life is real. Heaven and hell are real places existing in eternity. All of humankind will exist in eternity either with God in Heaven for those forgiven through Christ or completely separated from God in hell.
Communion (The Lord’s Supper) is a holy and sacred event, celebrating the last meal Jesus shared with His disciples. We believe that all persons partaking of Communion should come to this sacred meal with a pure heart, free from any unconfessed sin.
Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change, made by an individual that has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and openly and publicly professes their belief and trust in Jesus, the risen Savior. Baptism joins the believer with the entire family of God, His Church.
