What We Believe


All the holy scriptures of the bible are God-breathed and are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the person of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. In its original writing, the word of God is flawless, pure and true. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20- 21; Psalm 19:7, 8; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26)


There is one God, Creator of all, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Cor. 13:14)


Jesus Christ is God the Son. While on earth Jesus was true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; therefore, He is the Son of God. By faith He atoned for our sins through His death on the cross. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. Salvation is only through Him, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. (John 1:1, 14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Acts 4:12; Galatians 2:16, 20; Philippians 2:5-9; I Timothy 2:5; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23; Luke 1:27-35)


Adam, the first man, was created good and upright, but by his disobedience sin entered the world and death by sin. Man's only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1-7 Romans 5:12-21) We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His finished work which is His death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31)


The blood that Jesus Christ shed on the cross of Calvary was holy and pure and is 100% sufficient to cleanse all mankind of all sin. Jesus faithfully shed His blood for us, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death (separation from God). (I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5; 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 22, 23; 5:9; John 1:29; Hebrews 9:22; Ephesians 1:7)


Sanctification is the transforming process of yielding to God's Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (I Thessalonians 4:3; 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18; 6:14-18; Romans 8:29; 12:1-2; Hebrews 2:11; 2 Timothy 2:21)


Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority over their lives to Him thus making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead. (John 1:12; 14:17, 23; 15:4; Romans 8:9-11; Revelation 3:20; Eph 4:6; Gal 2:20; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:16)


The present day church is the body of Christ, the habitation (temple) of God through the Spirit. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 12:4, 5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2:19-22; 4:3-6; Colossians 1:18; John 17:11, 20-23)


The Lord's supper is a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (representing the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. We honor Christ's sacrifice when we commemorate the Lord's Supper. (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 10:16; 11:23-25)


Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation. (Luke 24:33-43; John 2:19-21; 20:26-28; 21:4; Acts 24:15; Acts 26:23; I Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23; 3:21)


Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the dispensation of grace. (II Corinthians 5:1-8; I Thes. 4:13-18)


After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to hell where they will be eternally tormented with the devil and the fallen angels. (Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11; 20:12-15; 21:8)


Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His kingdom. At this time the earth will be delivered from the bondage of corruption. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures. (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I; Romans 8:21; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)


Because our identity is in Christ by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and nothing can separate us from Him, everyone who has truly placed their faith in Jesus Christ's death on the cross for their sin and believes in His bodily resurrection is eternally secure, sealed by the Holy Spirit and cannot lose their salvation. (Col.3:3; Rom 8:38-39; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Eph 1:13-14; 4:30)


God draws all to be saved, enlightens everyone coming into the world and counsels none to perish but that all have room for repentance. We are totally free to accept or reject God; therefore we are responsible for our decisions. (John 1:9; 6:44, 45; 12:32; 2 Peter 3:9)
