Finding hope & new life in Jesus
We Believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)
We Believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory. (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11-13, Revelation 19:14-16)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, Who gifts us to accomplish Christ’s purposes in the world and Who manifests His presence to the world through Christ’s church (Romans 8:13-14; Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; 1 Corinthians 12 & 14; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18)
We Believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God's grace through faith alone are we saved. (John 3:16-19; John 5:24, Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)
We Believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved by faith in the finished work of Christ unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
We Believe that we as Christians are called to live life on mission as a people sent into the world for the demonstration and proclamation of God’s love as made evident in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (I John 4:16-17)
• We Believe The Church to be people of God, called to God, and sent by God, for the glory of God, to meet the needs of the world with God.
• We Believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God. (II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21)
