WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it is without error.

We believe that there is one God, who exists in three persons: Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit.

 

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is God. People became separated from God due to sin. Jesus shed His blood to make atonement for our sins.

 

Those that:  A. Admit that they are sinners,

B. Believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay for their sins, and C. Commit their lives to Him, become children of God with no separation from Him. We call that decision “Accepting Christ As Our Savior” or simply, “Salvation”.

 

We believe that Jesus rose from the dead and that He is now in Heaven. Those who believe in Him and commit their lives to Him will spend eternity in Heaven with Him. Those who reject Christ will face eternal judgment.

We believe that we are saved by grace through faith, not through works - salvation is a gift we accept, not something we work for (Ephesians. 2:8-9).

We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in the hearts of believers, helping them to resist sin and live lives pleasing to God.

Romans 3:23  ...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 5:8  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1 Peter 3:18  For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God...

Romans 10:9-10  ...if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

Acts 2:38  Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

John 5:24  "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgement, but has passed out of death into life."

Ephesians 2:8-9  For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
