OUR BELIEFS

About the Bible
   The Bible is God’s Word to all humanity. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is without mistake and it is the only source for faith and practice.

About God
   God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He is holy, self-existent, and eternally self-revealing in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

About Eternity
   Human beings were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God in Hell because of the sin of rejecting Jesus Christ or in union with God in Heaven because we have received forgiveness and salvation by trusting Jesus as our Savior. Heaven and Hell are the only places of eternal existence.

About Jesus Christ
   Jesus Christ is the Son of God, was born of a virgin and is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice and substitute for the sins for all humanity by shedding His blood and dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death and God’s acceptance of His sacrifice. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to take his family to heaven. Then at the end of the Tribulation He will return to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

About Salvation
   Salvation is a gracious gift from God to humanity. Human beings can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can people be saved from sin’s penalty and have a place in God’s family. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.

About Eternal Security
   Because God gives those who sincerely repent and believe eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.

About the Church
   The Church is the body of Jesus Christ who is its head.  The Local Church is a fellowship of baptized believers, gathering together in a certain locality, bound by a covenant of commitment to common beliefs, to glorify Jesus Christ in worship, spiritual growth, and in evangelistic effort to proclaim God’s love in Jesus Christ.  The Lord has given the Church two ordinances, the immersion of each believer in water (Baptism) as a symbol of their identification with Jesus Christ as Savior, and the Lord’s Supper which is a symbol of the sinless life and sacrificial, blood-atoning death of Jesus Christ.

About Evangelism
   It is the responsibility and obligation of all believers to be witnesses to the grace of God and the Lord Jesus Christ in every area of our life, actions, attitudes, and words.  It is the corporate responsibility and obligation of believers through their local church to proclaim the Gospel around the world by going and sending… going ourselves to those who have not believed the Gospel and sending others through financial and prayer support.
