What We Believe

 

What We Believe:

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.  2 Timothy 3:16-17

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 1 John 5:6-8

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but because of sin is lost and powerless to save himself. Genesis 1:26, Romans 6:23

We believe that the only hope for man is to believe in Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God, fully God, fully man. Through faith in Christ’s life, death and resurrection, mankind is redeemed. Romans 10:9-10,13; John 3:16, Ephesians 2:1-10

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.  1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Peter 2:18-24; John 3:16

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone. No amount of good works will produce justification before God. We further believe that the manifestation of grace and faith is a holy life expressed through righteous works. Romans 3:21-30; Galatians. 4:4-7; Ephesians 2:8-10

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, and through the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, believers are empowered for Christian service and gifted for this service. We believe that the gifts of the Spirit are active and necessary for today. 1 Corinthians 12

We believe that eternal life in heaven is the reward of all who believe and receive Christ as their Lord. According to the Scriptures, “For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16

We believe that deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers. Isaiah 53:4, Mark 16:18, 1 Peter 2:24

We believe in the imminent and personal return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 22:20, John 14:3-4
