WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the Bible is the Word of God. It was written by human authors under the supernatual guidance of the Holy Spirit and that the 66 books from Genesis to Revelation are the complete word of God. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any error and is completely revelant in our everyday lives.
We believe that God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists eternally in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the So, and God the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions and are distinct from the other, they are equal in power and glory.
We believe the first person of the Trinity orders and directs all things according to his own purpose, pleasure, character, and grace. In His character he is everywhere present, all-knowing, all-powerful, unchanging and completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. In His purpose and plans from eternity past, He is the grand architect of both creation and the redemption plan for sinners. As an infinitely loving and compassionate Father, he graciously involves himself in the affairs of humanity longing for their salvation and spiritual growth.
We believe Jesus Christ pre-existed from all eternity, that He is the creator and sustainer of the universe, that He was born of a virgin, that He lived a sinless life, that He died a sacrificial death for our sins, that He rose bodily from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God the Father, where He continues to seek and save lost sinners. He remains the only mediator between God and man. At the appointed time he will return to earth to fulfill the Fathers plan for history.
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers at the moment of salvation and empowers them to live lives that bring glory to God. He is the seal and guarentee of the believers salvation. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Jesus Christ. He also convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and coming judgment.
We believe the penalty of sin has separated humanity from God and that people are in need of salvation. Humanity is incapable of accomplishing their own salvation. We believe the sole condition for receiving everlasting life is faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died a substitutionary death on the cross and rose bodily from the grave. We believe that at salvation we are given the righteousness of Christ and because of that, we are are eternally secure in him.
We believe the Church is composed of all truly born-again people, being the Body of which Jesus Christ is the Head, that it had its earthly beginning on the day of Pentecost and that all believers, whether Jew or Gentile, from that day to the time when Christ comes in the Rapture for the Church, are united by the Holy Spirit in this one Body.
