We believe God is the one and only Sovereign Creator. God is a spiritual being. He is holy (without sin), all-knowing, all-powerful, everywhere present, and eternally existent.
(Exodus. 3:14-15, 1.Timothy. 6:15-16, Isaiah 40:13-14, John. 4:24, Psalm.90:1-6)
We believe Jesus existed in the beginning with God, and was God. Jesus became “God in the flesh”, born a man through the miracle of the virgin birth by the power of the Holy Spirit. Despite temptation, He lived a sinless life.
(Matthew 1:18-25, Luke. 1:26-45, John. 1:1-2 Luke 1:26-45; 14, Hebrew 4:14-15)
We believe the Holy Spirit lives within those who believe in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit empowers believers to live as His disciples, helping us to become more like Jesus in thought, word, deed and character.
(Galatians 2:20-21, John. 13:15-17; 16:5-15; Acts 1:8; Romans 15:13; Ephesians 1:13-14; 3:16)
Salvation, offered through Jesus is based upon grace, not merit. Salvation therefore cannot be earned; it is a gift from God. What we could not do for ourselves, Jesus did for us through His death on the cross. (Ephesians. 2:8-9)
God lovingly offers salvation to every person; every person has the freedom to accept or reject this gift from God. (John. 3:16-18; 1 Timothy 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9)
Baptism, by immersion, is a part of the salvation process, and demonstrates our response to God's offer of salvation as a pledge of willingness to live for Him.
(Acts 3:19; 2:38; 8:26-38; Romans 6:1-4; 1 Peter 3:21)
We believe the Church of Jesus Christ is not limited to any one institution or denomination; it consists of all who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ to provide redemption for their sins. The Church is the Body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to take the Gospel to the whole world, and train the faithful to live our lives in obedience to Christ.
(Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 12:12-17; Ephesians 4:4-6)
