What We Believe
We believe that there is one true God [Isa. 45:5]. He created everything [John 1:1-3. Gen. 1:1-2:3]. He preserves all things [Col. 1:15-17] He is one [John 10:30] but He exists eternally as Father, Son and Spirit [2 Cor. 13:14]. He is the source of all Truth [John 14:6, 17] God has reveled himself through creation [Ps.19:1], the Bible [Luke 24:17], the person and work of Jesus Christ [Heb. 1:1-3] and the continual work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of Christians [John 16:13-15]
We believe that Jesus is the only son of God. [2 Peter 1:17], he was conceived by the Holy Spirit without a human father [Matt. 1:18], born of the virgin Mary [Luke 1:26-38], He was crucified as the only atonement for the of the world [2 John 2:2], was raised from the dead [Acts 2:24] and He is now seated at the right hand of God in heaven. [Eph. 1:20]. There he serves as our High Priest [Heb. 4:14 -16]. He is waiting to return to Earth to judge all, the living and the dead, as well as the righteous and the unrighteous and the living and the dead. [Acts 17:31]
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the God-Head and was sent from God. [John 14:25] to glorify Jesus Christ. [John 16:14]. He convicts the world of it’s sin and unbelief. [John 16:8]. He regenerates those who believe [Titus 3:5]. He indwells within the Christian [Rom. 8:9-11]. He also guides Christians to truth [John 16:13]. He also helps Christians to do the work of ministry. [Eph. 4:7-13]
We believe the Old and New Testaments are both both the Word of God. They are both breathed out by God and his prophets, [2 Tim. 3:16-17]. They were recorded by men who were guided by the Holy Spirit. They are without error in their original form. The facts and statements made in them are true for salvation. They are completely trustworthy record of divine revelation. [2 Pet. 1:21]. They are, therefore the final authority in all things faith and supernatural. All events that are recorded happened and are true.
We believe sin entered humanity through Adam and Eve [Rom. 5:12], who were made in the image of God. [Gen. 1:26] They Choose to reject God’s will [Gen. 2:15-17; 3:1-7]. This has caused their descendants estranged from God [Eph. 2:1] also enslaved to the power of sin through their own disobedience. [John 8:34]
We believe that God reaches out in grace [Titus 2:11] and freely justifies those who respond in faith to His offer of salvation in Christ [Rom. 4:23-25]. There is salvation only in the blood of Jesus Christ who bore our penalty as our substitute on the cross. This is applied to the heart of the sinner when he comes to faith and responds properly to the Gospel that the Apostles preached and is recorded in the New Testament. The proper response by a man or woman is to hear the Gospel, repent of his or her sins, put his or her faith in Christ, and be united with Jesus Christ through water baptism.
We believe the mission given to the church is to penetrate the many cultures and people groups of the world with the Gospel, to make disciples[Matt. 28:19], and to plant local churches which will themselves be faithful to the mission. Christians should seek to remove division and to attain unity, for which Christ prayed as the means of bringing the world to Him.
