THE TRINITY

We believe there is one God, existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19, Colossians 2:9

THE BIBLE

We believe the entire Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, trustworthy, and the authority upon which we base our truth, faith, doctrine, and conduct.

John 17:17, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, I Corinthians 2:13

MAN

We believe God created male and female in his own image.  Mankind was created good and upright, but by voluntary disobedience, was separated from God.  

Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1-7, Romans 5:12-18; 6:23

JESUS

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. As a result of man’s disobedience and sin, Jesus came to this earth as Savior of the world.

Luke 1:26-35, John 1:18; 3:16, Isaiah 9:6

THE CROSS

We believe that Jesus’ death on the cross has provided salvation, or deliverance from everlasting death, to those who choose to accept Him as Lord and Savior. By admitting that we have sinned and accepting Jesus as Lord, we can have a personal relationship with God now and spend eternity with God in Heaven. Salvation is not a result of what we do, but is a free gift from God through faith.

Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 5:11; 10:8-13, 1 John 5:10-13, Hebrews 9:15

BAPTISM

We believe water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, is symbolic of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in Jesus.

Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:3-4, Colossians 2:11-12

COMMUNION

We believe in the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.

1 Corinthians 11:23-32

GROWTH

We believe every Believer should grow in their relationship with God through obedience to God’s Word, following the example of Jesus, and an active prayer life.  Ephesians 5:8, 2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1. We also believe The Holy Spirit empowers the Believer to develop the character Christ and live every day in God’s will.

John 14:26-27; 16:8, Acts 2:1-4; 2:38; 8:14; 10:44-46, Romans 8:26-27

HEALING

We believe that divine physical, emotional, and mental healing and restoration is active today through the power of Jesus, our Healer.

Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Mark 16:17-20

THE SECOND COMING

We believe Jesus will return and take all who have accepted Him as Lord and Savior to Heaven for eternity. We believe in the existence and personality of Satan. The Bible describes Hell as a real place of suffering and permanent separation from God for unbelievers. God sent Jesus to redeem us so that no one would have to endure this punishment.

Job 1:7, 2 Corinthians 11:14, Ephesians 4:27, James 4:7, Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:9, Revelation 20:10-15, John 3:18, Romans 6:23
