Core Beliefs

 

  • God - We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 

  • Jesus - We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave and ascended into Heaven.

 

  • Christ's Return - We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to the Earth.

 

  • Holy Spirit - We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation and is the Comforter and Guide who lives in every believer.

 

  • Bible - We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

 

  • Man - We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in his image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

 

  • Salvation - We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

  • Assurance - We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

  • Eternity - We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

 

  • Baptism - We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

 

  • Church - We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the head.

 

  • Prayer - We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
