About the Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s Word and is relevant to our daily lives. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:11,89,105,160; Psalm 12:6; Hebrews 4:12)

About God the Father - He is Good!

God is good: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all- holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. He is our heavenly Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1; John 3:16-17; 4:24; 14:1-2; Acts 17:28) 

About Humanity - Created in God’s Image

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have a personal relationship with Him but became separated from Father because of disobedience (sin). As a result, we can only regain a right relationship through faith in Jesus Christ. Man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own efforts. (Genesis 1:26-27, 2:7, 18-22; Psalms 8:3-6; 51:1-5; 59:1-2; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18,23; 6:6; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22 )

About Jesus Christ the Son - He Became Man

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 24:46-47; John 1:14; 11:25-27; 17; Romans 1:3-4; 8:1-3; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6)

About Salvation - God’s Gift of Grace

We believe the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides us the only opportunity to receive by faith the complete forgiveness of our sins. Therefore, God offers salvation to all those who put their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; Matthew 1:21; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24; 14:6; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:1; 5:8-10; 6; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Titus 3:5; Revelation 3:20)

About the Holy Spirit - God is Present

The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Jesus. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God's righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, empowers us to accomplish the tasks He has called us to. (Genesis 1:2; Psalm 139:7; Isaiah 61:1-3; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17)

About Eternity

Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in personal relationship with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally connected with Him is eternal life. (Matthew 25: 31-46; John 3:16; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15)

About the Church - God’s Primary Vehicle to Change the World

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith in the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him, loving others and making Him known to the world. We believe that a healthy church is the greatest hope for all. (Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 14:23; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15-17)

About Baptism

Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2:8-9; Colossians 2:12)
