What We Believe
ABOUT GOD We believe in the one true and living God who
exists eternally in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity is fully and completely
God, with distinct attributes, but without division of nature,
essence, or being.
ABOUT MAN We believe that mankind was created in the
image of God to have a relationship with Him but became
alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience.
As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship
with God through his own effort.
ABOUT SALVATION We believe that salvation is
the greatest need of all people. Salvation is only possible
through the shed blood of Jesus Christ that He willingly offered as
the only perfect sacrifice and substitutionary atonement for sin.
Salvation is freely offered to all but is only received when one
surrenders their life to Christ through repentance and faith in the
death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus as the only sufficient
payment for sin.
ABOUT THE CHURCH We believe the
church is the body of
Christ, of which Jesus is the head. The members of the church are redeemed, baptized believers who have placed their faith and trust in the
finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to
bring glory to God through reaching people with the gospel,
teaching people the Word of God, and ministering to people
through the love of Christ.
ABOUT EVANGELIST/MISSIONS We
believe evangelism and missions are our ultimate priority in
fulfilling our ultimate purpose of bringing glory to God.
Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost and following
his commission we are to go and make disciples. This is
the privilege and responsibility of every believer locally,
nationally, and internationally.
ABOUT THE FAMILY We believe
that the family is ordained by God as the foundational
institution of society and principle location of spiritual
development. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one
woman in covenant with God for life. The husband and wife
are of equal worth before God each fulfilling distinct roles
according to His gifts and calling. Children, from the
moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord.
