Our Beliefs

The foundations of our ministry

God

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power.


I Corinthians 8:6, Genesis 1:1, John 1:14, Matthew 3:16-17

Jesus

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return.


Matthew 1:18, Colossians 2:9, John 1:1-3, Acts 1:6-11

Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer.


Acts 2:4, Romans 8:26-27, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8

Mankind

We believe that mankind was created male and female, in the image of God. Mankind was created by and for God; that by man’s disobeying God, every person incurred guilt that led to spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice.


Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23-24, Romans 5:12, I Corinthians 15:21

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and without mistakes as originally written. It is the complete revelation of His character, His will for the salvation of mankind and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life.


II Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12, II Peter 1:21, Revelation 22:18-19

Salvation

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our guilt and sins, was buried to deliver us from the power of sin, and was raised from the dead to offer us new life and that all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and His life-giving resurrection.


John 3:16, I Corinthians 15:1-3, I Peter 3:18, Romans 6:1-11, John 11:25

Afterlife

We believe in the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived, the everlasting blessedness of those in right relationship with God, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God’s forgiveness and new life in His Son.


I Corinthians 15:50-55, I John 5:13-14, II Corinthians 5:17, I Peter 5:10

Baptism

We believe in baptism by immersion, a symbolic representation of Christ’s burial and resurrection. This act follows salvation and is a public profession of faith that an individual makes for themselves which declares Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.


Matthew 28:19-20
