About

Beliefs

We believe that the God-inspired Holy Scriptures are God’s complete, sufficient, infallible, inerrant revelation to people and are a believer’s final authority for faith and practice.

We believe in one God, eternal and holy, creator and sustainer of all, revealed in the Holy Scriptures as the Trinity. One in essence yet three Persons, each fully and equally God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, fully God and fully man, lived a perfect sinless life, performed miracles, was crucified in our place, was resurrected from the dead, and ascended into heaven where He makes intercession for believers. In God’s ordained time, Jesus Christ will return for His Church, after which God will judge all people - blessing those found in Christ with eternal life and condemning those who die in rebellion to eternal damnation.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit sent from the Father and the Son to indwell each believer fully at conversion, empowering them to live a life set apart unto God for His glory.

Made in His Image

We believe that though man was created perfect in God’s image, through Adam’s sin, every person became spiritually dead and fell out of fellowship with God. God, in His mercy, sent His Son as the perfect sacrifice to reconcile mankind and redeem all of creation by His atoning blood. Those who trust solely in Christ’s completed work are reconciled to God forever and adopted by Him as children; those not trusting are condemned already.

We believe that all who are born again by the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus Christ are eternally saved from damnation and may be assured of living with God forever in heaven.

We believe that all believers by reason of their new identity in Christ should endeavor to live holy, spirit empowered lives, motivated not by compulsion, but rather, as a loving response to their Heavenly Father, striving to love God and others as Christ loves us.

We believe that heaven and earth as we know them will pass away and a new heaven and earth will replace them. Believers will live in eternal bliss in this new creation glorifying God by enjoying Him forever.
