Our Beliefs

We believe there is one God, the God of the Bible, Jehovah. He is holy, all knowing, all powerful and eternally existing as God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit, equal and one (The Trinity). He has created all things without the necessity of evolution and will judge all things and all people.

We believe Jesus Christ is everything the Bible says He is: The only Savior, the only sacrifice acceptable to God as payment for our sins. He was virgin born and lived a sinless life. He gave all the sacrifice necessary when He was crucified and died on Calvary’s cross. He was buried, rose from the grave, ascended to heaven, is alive today, will soon return for His bride and seven years later will return to rule the world. He is Creator, Redeemer, The Lamb of God, The Prince of Peace, God in flesh, Lord of Lords and King of Kings, the Final Judge of every man (as well as man’s only hope), the Way, the Truth and the Life and the only way anyone can come to God the Father. Without Jesus all mankind is doomed and damned without hope.

We believe The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God who convicts the hearts of men of their sin, of their need for a savior, and of the reality that Jesus Christ is their only hope of being saved. The Holy Spirit draws men to Christ, urges them to repent of their sins and to call out to Jesus to be saved. When they do, He immerses them into Christ. As the Spirit of Christ, He dwells in the heart of every person who is saved and reveals His presence along with the fact that the person is God’s child. He empowers Christian people to live the Christian life, obey God and serve Him.

We believe the Bible is God’s Holy Word, without error and can be fully trusted to reveal the mind of God, the will of God, the love of God, the sin of man, God’s provision for man’s salvation, the past and future.  The Bible is the totally sufficient guide to life.

We believe the Church is the blood-bought bride and body of Christ, consisting of all who, but only those who are born-again believers. It is the Church’s task to carry on the work of Christ, revealing God’s love as we allow His love to flow through us, sharing the Gospel message, leading people to Christ, teaching God’s Word, worshiping God and glorifying God in everything.
