What we believe about God’s Word
We believe that there is one living and true God who eternally exists in three persons; The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All three are equal in power and glory.
We believe that God is the Father and the creator. He has eternally existed in three: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are one God.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Father as son. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for all of our sins by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and Jesus. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Holy Word. The Bible was authored by God and written by human writers 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 the truth without any mixture of error.
We believe that people are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates people from God and causes problems in life. We are by nature separated from God and responsible for our own sin.
We believe that salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin ourselves or through good works. Only by faith in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. Only when we turn from our sin life and turn to Jesus in faith are we saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith.
We believe the Bible teaches that there are two things Jesus told us to do that would help us to remember what He did, and identify us with Him.
- Baptism: is a symbolic act whereby a Christian is immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Baptism is an outward profession of faith to an inward event in the life of an individual.
- The Lord’s Supper: is a symbolic act of obedience where Christians partake of bread and wine remembering the death of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant committed for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the women in marriage the framework for intimate companionship according to biblical standards.
We believe that God is the source of all blessings, temporal and spiritual; all that we have and are is because of Him. Because of our debt to God we are under obligation to serve Him with our time, talents, and with our treasures. According to the Bible, we as Christians should contribute our means regularly with a cheerful heart and a grateful attitude.
