We believe in standing for the Truth that sets people free while accepting people where they are at on their journey as the Holy Spirit changes their life from the inside out.
We believe the Bible is the sufficient and complete guide for faith and practice and is the final authority in all that is said and done, which means that in order to be a healthy believer who experiences all that Jesus has for them, one must take all of life’s experiences through a biblical filter. The Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God; it is without error in the original writings; and it is the complete and final written revelation of God.
We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – Who are coequal in their essential nature, attributes and perfection; and each of Whom is to be honored and worshiped as God.
We believe Jesus Christ is God the Son, the promised Messiah, begotten in the flesh by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, without sin, true God and true man, the only Savior and the only mediator between God and man.
We believe the death of Jesus Christ paid for all sin, completely satisfied the righteous wrath of God against sin, and provided redemption and forgiveness for all who believe. After His death, Jesus Christ arose bodily from the dead, was seen by many during a period of forty days, and then ascended into Heaven to appear before God as our Advocate and Intercessor from which place He will someday return to establish His Kingdom on earth.
We believe the Holy Spirit is that Person of the Triune Godhead Who convicts men of sin, causes spiritual birth, indwells, seals, sanctifies, guides, equips with spiritual gifts, teaches, fills the believer so that they may walk in obedience to God in His Word, and with Whom Christ baptizes all believers into the body of Christ at the moment of salvation.
We believe the physical and material universe was created by God. Man was created by God in His own image, but sinned through his personal disobedience to the revealed will of God; and as a result, all mankind is sinful in nature and practice, is unable to save itself and faces eternal separation from God.
We believe salvation is the free gift of God’s grace; and is based upon God’s choice. This salvation is not received by nor based on any sacrament, merit or good work on our part.
We believe salvation is received by one’s personal faith and belief in Jesus Christ, which means giving up reliance upon oneself and surrendering to Jesus Christ.
We believe baptism is not essential to salvation but is an act of obedience, the answer of a good conscience toward God .
We believe worshiping God is a lifestyle choice. Through our words, actions, thoughts and prayers, we express our adoration to our LORD.
