We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all. (John 1:1-3; John 17:3; Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 3:22)
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty maker of heaven and earth. He is our Creator full of wisdom, power, love and holiness. He is not removed from our world but instead concerns Himself in the affairs of men. He invites us into a living relationship with Himself through Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:1; John 14:6-9, 15-17 and John 16:7-15; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 4:9-10
God expressed himself in human form through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified for the sins of us all, was buried, rose again from the dead, and ascended to heaven.
Colossians 1:13-23 and Colossians 2:8-14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Matthew 22:36-40 ; John 14:1-3; Hebrews 1:1-3; Acts 10:42-43; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
When Jesus ascended to heaven He sent the Holy Spirit to join us, fill us, and teach us to live Christ-centered lives. He fills us with the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control. In addition to that, the Holy Spirit can empower believers to witness and pray beyond their own human capabilities.
Acts 1:8; 2:4; Romans 5:5 and Romans 8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 3:16, Ephesians 4:3-4, and Ephesians 5:18; John 14:26 and John 16:7-14
We believe that all the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired by Him. The Bible contains all the words of God that we need in order to completely know and trust Him; and is the final authority and standard for faith and practice – sufficient for counsel in every area of life.
Psalm 119:97-104; Psalm 119:160; Matthew 4:4; Matthew 5:18, 5:46-47; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:15-16; Hebrews 4:12
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. We are justified by grace through faith; our works don’t save us...Jesus does.
Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; II Corinthians 5:17; Titus 2:11; 3:5-7
