What We Believe

About God

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

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the virgin born Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on the cross. Three days after His death and burial, He arose from the dead to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended back to Heaven, after His resurrection, and assumed His place of glory at His Father's right hand.

About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He accomplishes this by making people aware of their sinful condition and pointing out the truth concerning who Jesus Christ is. He also lives in every Christian from the very moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, guidance in doing the right thing and is God the Father’s seal guaranteeing our eternal inheritance. The Christian seeks to live under the power of the Holy Spirit every day.
2 Corinthians 3:17 ; John 16:7-13, John 14:16-17 ; Acts 1:8 ; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 1 Corinthians 3:16 ; Ephesians 1:13 ; Galatians 5:25 ; Ephesians 5:1

About Man

Man was created in the spiritual image of God Himself, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God's wonderful creation. Because of the sin of Adam, the whole human race has inherited a sinful nature. In other words, we are sinners by birth. This sin separates mankind from God.
Genesis 1:27 ; Psalms 8:3-6, Psalms 58:3 ; Isaiah 53:6a ; Romans 3:23 ; Isaiah 59:1-2

About Salvation

Salvation is the gift of God to the human race. Men, left to themselves, can never produce salvation through their good works or self-improvement. Salvation is produced only by trusting Jesus Christ as God's perfect offer of forgiveness. Eternal life begins the instant a person receives Jesus as his personal Savior. Good works are the results of salvation and are outward signs of what God has already done in the heart of a believer. No ceremony, rite or ritual can generate the new birth required to enter God’s glorious heaven.
John 3:3, John 3:7, John 3:16 ; Acts 16:31 ; Romans 6:23 ; Ephesians 2:8-9 ; John 14:6 ; John 1:12 ; Titus 3:5 ; Galatians 3:26 ; Romans 5:1

About Eternal Security

Because salvation is God's gift to mankind, the believer is eternally secure in His salvation. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of Almighty God, not by the self-effort of the believer. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
John 10:28-29 ; 2 Timothy 1:12 ; Hebrews 6:4-6 ; Hebrews 7:25 ; Hebrews 10:10, Hebrews 10:14 ; 1 Peter 1:3-5

About Baptism

We believe that water baptism is in obedience to the command of Christ, and is by immersion after salvation.
Romans 6:3-10 ; Acts 8:34-38 ; Mark 1:9-11

About Eternity

God breathed life into the nostrils of man and “he became a living soul.” Man, therefore, was created to live forever and He will live forever in one of two places. Man will either dwell with God in Heaven, through the forgiveness of his sins by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Otherwise, he will exist forever in Hell, eternally separated from God. To receive Jesus into one's heart produces salvation which will result in an eternal union between the believer and God. To reject Jesus Christ will guarantee that the unbeliever will spend eternity in Hell, forever separated from the presence of God. Heaven and Hell are the only places of eternal existence.
Psalms 9:17 ; Daniel 12:2 ; Mark 9:43-49 ; Luke 16:19-31 ; John 3:16-18 ; John 3:36 ; John 5:24-29 ; John 11:25-26 ; Romans 6:23 ; 2 Thes. 1:9-10 ; Revelation 20:15

About The Bible

The Bible is the Word of God. It was written by human authors under the direct supervision and supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for all Christian belief and practice. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error whatsoever.
2 Timothy 3:16 ; 2 Peter 1:20-21 ; 2 Timothy 1:13 ; Psalms 12:6 ; 119 ;89 ; 105 ; 160 ; Proverbs 30:5 ; 2 Peter 1:21

About the Church

We believe that the local church is the local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the head. The church is God’s only plan to fulfill the Great Commission.
Matthew 28:18-20 ; Ephesians 4:15-16 ; I Cor. 12:27-28

About Jesus’ Return

We believe that the Lord is returning soon first to ‘Rapture’ or catch up all His believers. The dead in Christ will rise first followed immediately by all believers who are still alive at his return. The removal of believers will trigger events know as the Tribulation. This is known as a “time of Jacob’s trouble”. One purpose is to prepare Israel to receive him at his return. The church has not been appointed unto this wrath and will be safe with Jesus during this time of Great tribulation. Following approximately 7 years of tribulation, the Lord Jesus will return physically to earth to rule and rein on the Throne of David a thousand years. At the end of which, Satan will be defeated and cast into the lake of fire.
