OUR BELIEFS

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 the supreme object of God's creation and love. When Adam sinned, he introduced death to all mankind. Not just a physical death, but a spiritual death also. Under Moses, God hinted at a way to restore life to a man's spirit. Through the Law of Moses, God instituted a system of rules and sacrifices to cover over man's sins, giving man a chance to fellowship with God. God's own Son, Jesus, then became flesh and completed the impossible task of obeying all the regulations necessary for right-standing with the Father. Dying on the cross, He became the actual Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the whole world. By simply believing that Jesus is the "gate" to God your spirit dies to the old master of Sin, and is raised to the master of Righteousness. This is called being born-again. Righteousness is no longer something that you DO, but it is who you ARE.

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.

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 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. By accepting that Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection were intended to free humanity from the slavery of Sin, we become born again. Our spirits are transformed into the perfect reflection of Jesus Himself, and we receive brand new hearts that beat with the life of the Spirit of Christ. 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. Also known as The Spirit of Christ, He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in this life. He dwells in every believer, and testifies of all that Jesus did so that we can experience abundant life.

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. When reading the Old Testament scriptures, and even the Gospels, it is crucial that you read them with the Finished-Work of the Cross in mind. Proper context always reveals the wonderful truth that Jesus literally finished every requirement that was necessary for you to become perfectly right with God.

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 wonderful celebration of what Jesus has finished in you.

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 completed work of Jesus.

Matthew 26:26-30 || Mark 14:22-26 || Luke 22:19-20 || 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
