The Bible is Our Authority

The sole basis for our belief is the Bible, which is God-inspired, without error, and the final authority on all matters on which it speaks.

2 Timothy 3:16
2 Peter 1:20-21

We are God’s Creation

God made humans in His image to have fellowship with Him, but we defied God by going our own way. Everyone is stained by the nature of disobedience, called sin. Sin separates us from God and causes problems in our life. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from him.

Genesis 1:26-31
Romans 5:12

Jesus Died for Us

Born of a virgin, Jesus lived and walked the earth sinless and blameless. He died on a cross as a sacrifice for all our sins. On the third day, He rose from the dead to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He then ascended to heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father and will return to earth again to reign as King.

2 Corinthians 5:21
1 Corinthians 15:20-22
Romans 6:23
John 3:16

Salvation is God’s Free Gift, But We Must Accept It

No amount of good deeds will wash away our sins. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as the person that paid the ultimate price for our sins can we be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-centered life and surrender it to Jesus in faith, we are saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9
Galatians 2:16
Romans 10:9

The Trinity

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal.

Genesis 1:26
1 John 5:7

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His ascension, to empower God’s church and draw people into a relationship with Jesus. The Holy Spirit equips believers for personal growth and service to the church.

Joel 2:28-29
Matthew 3:11
John 16:7-11

Spiritual Gifts Still Manifest in Believers

The Holy Spirit is manifested through spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel.

Hebrews 2:4
Romans 1:11
Romans 12:4-8

We Believe in Water Baptism

Christ commanded His people to be baptized in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19
Acts 2:38
John 3:5-8

Heaven and Hell are Real

Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all Christ followers. God will send unbelievers to Hell (a place of eternal torment, originally created for the Devil and the Fallen Angels and not for man).

Matthew 25:34
1 Thessalonians 4:17-18
Revelation 20:11-15
