THE BIBLE –

We believe the Bible

      • Is the inspired and authoritative Word of God
      • Is inerrant in the original writings

(2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:21)

ONE GOD –

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

(Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19)

GOD THE FATHER –
      • Is infinite, is eternal and is a Spirit
      • Is perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love
      • Is merciful in the affairs of men
      • Hears and answers prayer
      • Saves all those who come to Him through Jesus Christ

(Psalms 90:2, Psalms 102:27, John 3:16, John 4:24, 1 Timothy 1:17)

JESUS CHRIST –
      • Is the promised Messiah
      • Is God the Father’s only begotten Son conceived by the Holy Spirit
      • Was born of a virgin
      • Was totally without sin
      • Died on the cross for our sins
      • Was buried and rose again on the third day
      • Ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven where He now intercedes for us who believe in Him

(Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Mark 16:19, Luke 1:34-35, John 1:1 & 14, John 11:25-26, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 4:15, 1 John 1:2)

THE HOLY SPIRIT –
      • Convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment
      • Indwells every believer in Jesus Christ
      • Fills and empowers believers to live godly lives
      • Helps, teaches, and guides believers
      • Fills believers with the fruit of the Spirit
      • Gives Biblical gifts to believers

(John 14:16-17, John 16:8-11, Acts 1:8, Romans 8:26, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Galatians 5:22-23)

SALVATION BY FAITH –

We believe

      • All people are sinners by nature and choice, falling short of God’s standard and breaking His commandments
      • All people are under God’s righteous judgment
      • Because Jesus died for the sins of the world the invitation to believe is open to all who desire to have new life and the forgiveness of sins
      • All people can only be saved by a personal faith in Jesus Christ and not by any human merit or performance

(John 3:16-17, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5)

HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL –

We believe

      • Heaven is a real place where the saved will dwell forever
      • Hell is a literal place of torment where unbelievers will suffer forever

(John 14:1-3, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 22:5)

JESUS IS RETURNING –

We believe

      • In the rapture of the church where believers will meet the Lord in the air and be taken out of this world
      • Jesus is returning a 2nd time to earth at the end of the Great Tribulation and will pour out His wrath on the wicked and set up His kingdom on earth to rule and reign forever

(Matthew 16:27, Matthew 24:29-31, Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 1 Thessalonians 14:13-18, 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Revelation 19:11-16)
