What we believe

Holy Bible: The Holy Scriptures are the very words of God and serve as a reference for us to know God and all his glory. The Bible has no flaws and is still very relevant and applicable to our lives today.

Trinity: There is one God, displayed in three persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.

Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only way to heaven. On earth, Jesus was 100 percent God and man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and died on a cross for our sins. He then rose from the dead on the third day providing a way for us to be redeemed.

Redemption: Humanity was created good, but because of sin, we fell. Our only hope for redemption is by accepting Jesus Christ, the Son of God, into our lives.

Salvation: We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human effort.

Resurrection: Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. As a result, we can also overcome our sins and be made righteous through Christ.

Sanctification: Sanctification is a process. Each day we strive to become more like Christ.

The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost. The baptism in the Holy Spirit was promised by God the Father and sent by Jesus after His ascension to empower the church to take the gospel to the whole earth.

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build up and sanctify the church. We should all seek to find out our individual gifts. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures.

The Church: The church is the Body of Christ and God’s chosen way of reaching the world with his message of hope and love. We are encouraged to faithfully attend a local church, be in unity, and encourage one another on our spiritual journeys.

Healing of the Sick: Healing is available for each person – physically, emotionally and spiritually – as illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus. By Christ’s death, we are healed.

Second Coming: Jesus Christ will come to this earth again and be united with those who love him. No one knows when this day will come.

Two Sacraments:

Water Baptism: After receiving Christ as our Savior, we are commanded by God to be baptized in water. This is an outward sign to the world of the change that has happened in our hearts.

The Lord’s Supper: Communion is an awesome experience when the elements of bread and grape juice (the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken to remember Christ’s sacrifice for us on the cross.
