What We Believe

The Scriptures Inspired

The Bible is inspired by God, the product of men who spoke and wrote as they were directed by the Holy Spirit. We accept the scriptures as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21, 1 Thessalonians 2:13)

The One True God

The one, true God is expressed in three separate persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and function as one person. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in human flesh, is equal and eternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. (John 1:1,14)

Man

Man was created in God’s image but voluntarily rebelled and transgressed the will of God. Consequently, people today are sinners in need of a Savior. Their only hope is redemption through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)

Salvation

The Lord Jesus Christ provides salvation to all who will receive Him through His death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection. By faith in His shed blood, apart from human works, we accept His work as complete and sufficient for forgiveness, righteousness and eternal reward. (Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5-7; Acts 16:3; Romans 10:9-10; 2 Corinthians 5:10)

The Church

The church is the body of Christ, the family of God, the habitation of God through the Spirit. Each born-again believer is a part of the church which is written in Heaven. (Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)

Our Blessed Hope

Jesus is physically coming back to earth again to gather His people to Heaven. (Acts 1:11; 1 Corinthians 15:51; 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; 2 Thessalonians 2:1; Titus 2:13
