What We Believe

About the Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living ( II Timothy 3:15-17 ).

About God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man ( Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16).

About Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ ( Romans 3:23-25; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).

About the Gospel

The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial) and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection) ( I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, Acts 2:37-39; Romans 6:3-4).

About Christian Living

As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly and worship God joyfully. The gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today ( II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10 ).

About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again for His church. In the end, there will be a final resurrection and a final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life and the unrighteous eternal death ( I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15 ).
