Our Beliefs

God

We believe in one God, who unconditionally loves all people, regardless of their race, gender, or nationality. He eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity is fully and completely God, sharing all of the divine attributes in a perfect loving community.

Matthew 28:19; John 1:14; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the perfect revelation of God to humankind. He is fully God and fully man. After voluntarily coming to earth and living a sinless life, He died on the cross as the substitute for humanity’s sin. His resurrection from the grave affirms His victory over sin and death.

Matthew 1:18-2:12; John 1:1-18;
Romans 3:21-26; 1 Corinthians 12;
Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15-23;
Hebrews 1:1-13; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 1:1-2:2

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be completely true and authoritative in all areas of faith and practice. It is God-inspired and a source of strength, direction, and wisdom for those who apply it to their lives.

John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who indwells the followers of Jesus at the point of salvation. He also equips them with spiritual gifts for serving others, and guides them in the journey to become like Christ as they relinquish control of their lives.

John 14:15-26; Acts 2:1-33; Romans 8:1-27;
Galatians 5:16-23; 1 John 2:20-27

Salvation

We believe that all who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Lord and Savior will receive the forgiveness of sins and the free gift of eternal life. True peace and fulfillment in life are only found in a relationship with Jesus.

John 3:16, 6:35-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:28-39; Philippians 1:6; 2 Timothy 2:13; 1 Peter 1:3-9; 1 John 5:11-13

Man

We believe God created humans, both male and female, in His perfect image. Because of our rebellion, we were all separated from God. However, we can all be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ.

Genesis 1:26-31; Romans 3:10-18;
Ephesians 2:1-3
