What We Believe

            About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22 || Psalm 90:2 || Matthew 28:19 || 1 Peter 1:2 || 2 Corinthians 13:14

About You

You are made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character. You are the supreme object of God's creation and love. Although you have tremendous potential for good, you are marred by an inherent flaw of disobedience towards God called "sin." This flaw, which is the result of Adam’s sin (the fall of man),  separates you from God until the relationship is restored through a personal commitment to Jesus Christ. You must be born-again by your confession of faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of God. Genesis 1:27 || Psalms 8:3-6 || Isaiah 53:6 || Romans 3:23 || Isaiah 59: 1-2 || Romans 8:9-10

     About Eternity

Humans were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. John 3:16 || 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13 || Romans 6:23 || Revelation 20:15

 About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He descended into the regions of Hell, defeated the enemy Satan, and arose from the dead thereby demonstrating His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Matthew 1:22-23 || Isaiah 9:6 || John 1:1-5; 14:10-30 || Hebrews 4:14-15 || 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 || Romans 1:3-4 || Acts 1:9-11 || 2 Timothy 6:14-15 || Titus 2:13

 About Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God to humanity. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's payment for our sin can we be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Romans 6:23 || Ephesians 2:8-9 || John 14:6; 1:12 || Titus 3:5 || Galatians 3:26 || Romans 5:1

      About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He is the agent by whom the person is born-again, made a new creation and He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit follows salvation and is evidenced by the Christian yielding to the Holy Ghost praying through him in another language (tongues). The Holy Spirit provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live submitted to His leading daily. 2 Corinthians 3:17 || John 16:7-13; 14:16-17 || Acts 1:8; 2 || 2 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16 || Ephesians 1:13 || Galatians 5:25 || Ephesians 5:18

 About The Bible

The Bible is God's Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. 2 Timothy 3:16 || 2 Peter 1:20-21 || 2 Timothy 1:13 || Psalms 119:105, 160; 12:6 || Proverbs 30:5

     About Baptism

Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ. Colossians 2:12 || Acts 2:41 || Ephesians 2: 8-9 || Matthew 28:19-20

 About Communion

Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember His sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of Jesus. Matthew 26:26-30 || Mark 14:22-26 || Luke 22:19-20 || 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
