What We Believe About...
There is only one God and He is the Creator of all things. He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is perfectly loving, perfectly just, and completely holy. He is bigger, better and closer than we can imagine.
Jesus is God's only Son whom God sent to earth to save us from our sins because of His great love. Jesus is the only way to salvation and the only one who can reconcile us to God. He is the second person of the Trinity and co-equal with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.
THE Holy Spirit
God lives and works in us now through His Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who sanctifies and empowers believers to be like Jesus. The Holy Spirit is a person, not an impersonal force. He is the third person of the Trinity and co-equal with God the Father and God the Son.
The Bible is God’s Word given to the prophets through the Holy Spirit. It is complete, God-breathed, infallible and applicable to our everyday lives.
Grace is the undeserved, unearned favor of God by which a personal relationship is realized and enjoyed through Christ.
Faith is trusting in Christ alone for salvation from sin. It is trusting and believing what the Bible says is true. It is only by faith in God through Christ Jesus that we can enjoy a relationship with Him.
Salvation comes by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, it means that your sins are forgiven, you are saved from hell, and delivered from the bondage of sin here on earth.
Heaven & Hell
Heaven and Hell are very real places. When our lives here on earth are over, it is not the end but only the beginning—The beginning of an eternity spent in one or the other based on your relationship with Jesus.
Evil & satan
Evil takes 3 forms: Evil is personal—it comes from within us and our sinful or fleshly desires. Evil is social—it comes from the fallen world around us. Evil is supernatural— coming from Satan and his demons.
We believe that the church is not a place or a program, but a people. The purpose of the church is to love God, love people, and to lead others to do the same.
History will come to an end when Jesus returns. Since we do not know when that time will be and the Bible tells us certain signs will happen before that time comes, it is the duty of every believer to watch, prepare and endure all things until that day.
The Nicene Creed
Our core beliefs are summarized in the Nicene Creed. A statement of faith that has been shared by followers of Jesus around the world since the foundations of the early church.
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,
and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
begotten of the Father before all worlds;
God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God;
begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made.
Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven,
and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man;
and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered and was buried;
and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures;
He ascended into heaven, and now sits enthroned at the right hand of the God the Father almighty;
and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead;
and of his kingdom, there shall be no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life;
who proceeds from the Father and the Son;
who together with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified;
He spoke by the prophets.
We believe in one holy, universal, apostolic Church.
We confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins,
and I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
