What We Believe

Oneness of God
There is one God, who has revealed Himself throughout history in various manifestations.  He has revealed himself as our Father in creation, as the Son Jesus Christ in the incarnation, and as the Holy Spirit operating in our hearts today.  Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both completely God and completely man. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)

About the Bible
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)

About the gospel of Jesus Christ
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). (See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)

Redemption and Restoration
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

Compassion and Love
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect,and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior orattitudes directed toward anyindividual are tobe repudiated and are not in accord with scripture nor the doctrinesofthe church.

Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace though faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (See Romans 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:8-9)

Christian Living
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should life a righteous life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the spirit, including healing and working of miracles, are for the church today. (See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10)

The Future
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away his church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (See I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15)
