What We Believe

We Believe In

ONE GOD who eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  He is the Creator of all things and the Sustainer of all life.  He is our Covenant-Redeemer and personal Guide.

THE BIBLE  as the fully inspired, solely authentic Word of God and our supreme authority.

JESUS CHRIST  as complete deity, perfect humanity, virgin-born and sinless in life.  He was self-giving and God-forsaken in death; affording us forgiveness with God.  He was triumphant over death in bodily resurrection, freeing us from sin. He can provide healing from estrangement from God, others and self.  He ascended to the Father and is coming again to earth in power and glory.

THE HOLY SPIRIT  revealing our sin; restoring all who renounce sin and receive Jesus Christ.  He is a renewing to believers in holiness and guiding into truth. He is our guarantee of abundant life in Christ, now and forever.

MAN as created in the image of God, having infinite personal worth.  He was deprived of divine splendor through unbelief and disobedience.  He is incapable of reclaiming his lost relationship with God.  He is restorable only by divine grace through personal faith in Jesus Christ.

THE CHURCH as God's community of worship and witness, called from self and sin to Christ and righteousness. We celebrate God's love; committed to His Lordship in all things; communicating His Life to everyone; cultivating spiritual unity of all followers of His way.

LIFE AFTER DEATH all persons will live forever; everyone is accountable to God for all one is and does.  All found in Christ are destined to enjoy life with God forever.
