What We BelieveWe believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God that communicates His saving message, and is our infallible and reliable authority in all matters related to faith and Christian living.
We believe in one God, who has eternally expressed himself in three personalities: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the Father, and in His personal, future return to this earth.
We believe that all humankind struggles with a downward pull. We have all fallen short of God’s glory and purpose.
We believe the love and grace of God is extended to every person in the provision Jesus Christ made in His death and resurrection. By turning from our own selfishness and trusting Jesus Christ, we experience a new life, being freed from the old patterns of self-destructive acts called sin.
We believe that unless we experience God’s help and salvation through a faith commitment to Jesus Christ, our future is one of eternal separation from God and all that is good.
We believe our new life in Jesus Christ is the gateway to transformation. Following our moment of faith in Jesus, we believe there is another moment in which we present our life completely to Christ in order to live under His authority and to experience sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Christian experience is more than a change of mind. It is accompanied by assurance that is grounded in both the Scriptures and the inner witness of God’s Spirit.
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to eternal separation from God. Each individual is accountable and is endowed with the power of choice.
