Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever
— Hebrews 13:8

We believe In...

THE TRINITY

The Bible teaches there is one God, eternally existing in three persons; God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit. (Hebrews 1: 2, John 14: 25 - 26, 16: 7)

JESUS

God became a human through Jesus Christ His Son, who lived a sinless life on earth and took the punishment for our wrong doing by dying on the cross as our substitute. He was raised from death and lives forever in heaven. God did that to show His love for mankind and to bring us back to a relationship with Him. Jesus now pleads for us before God and will take all those who accept this love and gift to heaven to live with God forever. (Matthew 28: 5-7, Galatians 4: 4, Romans 5: 8, Hebrews 4: 14-16, 1 Thessalonians 4: 3 -18)

The HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is God.  He draws us to Jesus Christ and indwells us at the moment we place our faith in Him. As we allow the Holy Spirit to change our lives He helps us become obedient to God’s Word, and to know and enjoy all of God’s promises. The Holy Spirit gives each Christian a unique spiritual ability to serve God and the church. (Titus 3 : 4-8, 1 Corinthians 12)

THE BIBLE

God’s Word, which was passed on by God to human writers became the Bible and is the truth about Him, creation, mankind, and the purpose for living. It provides God’s direction for the church and it is totally adequate and relevant for our lives today. (2Timothy 3: 15 - 17)

SIN

Because Adam and Eve originally went against God, then all of mankind inherited that same disobedience. This broke the relationship we had with God and caused the punishment of separation from God forever. On our own we have no ability to solve this situation. (Romans 5: 6, 12, 3: 9 - 20)

GETTING RIGHT WITH GOD (SALVATION)

The only way we regain a relationship with God and ensure eternal life in heaven is through faith in Jesus Christ alone.  In acknowledging we are sinners (fall short of God’s perfect standards) we need to: believe Jesus, God’s Son, died for our wrong doing (sins) and rose to life again (trust in him to save us, rely on his death to pay the penalty for our sin). The evidence of this process will be a changing life developing the attitude and character of Jesus and good works. (Romans 3:21-26; Ephesians 2:4-10, 4:23-24)

THE CHURCH

God is accomplishing His purposes in the world through His Church both universally (all believers around the world) and locally (all believers within a local congregation). The Church is to glorify God by following Christ as the supreme head of the church. He gives to the church spiritual gifts (through the lives of believers), human spiritual leaders (who rule under Christ) and two ordinances (baptism and communion). (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 2:11, 3:6; Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 3:21; Ephesians 4:7-12; Acts 2:38-42; Acts 8:36-39)

FUTURE EVENTS

We all die once and when we die our spiritual being lives on. When Jesus returns to earth, as He said he would, all the dead will be raised to life again and along with those that are still living, will be judged by God.  Those who have a relationship with God will spend forever with God in heaven.  Those who do not have a relationship with God will suffer the consequences, separation from God forever. (1 Corinthians 15: 51-57,   2 Corinthians 5: 6 - 10, Revelation 20: 11 - 15, Romans 6: 23)
