WHAT WE BELIEVE:
ABOUT THE SCRIPTURES
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God. We Believe the Bible is our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is a member of that Trinity, the Son. We believe Jesus came to Earth, became flesh as a man, to become the Savior of the world.
We believe that Adam and Eve, the precursors of the entire human race, were created in the image of God; however, they disobeyed God and became sinners. Through Adam, all people inherited sin’s nature and consequences, and all are in need of a Redeemer (Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12, 19).We believe that man was created by God in the image of God to have fellowship with Him. We believe that fellowship with God was broken through mans sinful disobedience. We believe man is incapable of restoring that fellowship with God by his own effort.
We believe that when Jesus Christ died on the cross, His blood provides the only means for the forgiveness of sins. We believe salvation only occurs when a person places their faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus, and that is the only sufficient payment for sin.We believe a person who physically dies, in his sins,.without Jesus Christ is eternally lost from fellowship with God, and therefore, has no further opportunity of repenting. (John 3:16; Isaiah 53:5; Titus 2:14)
THE NEW BIRTH
We believe that the change that takes place in people when they are “born again” is very real. They receive righteousness through Jesus Christ, and they are empowered by the Holy Spirit; therefore, they should have new desires, interests and pursuits (John 3:3; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
ABOUT THE CHURCH
We believe the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head.
