What we Believe
What we Believe
God has revealed Himself to be the infinite personal Creator, who is sovereign over all things and who eternally exists in three personalities, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit co-equal as one God; referred to as the Trinity.
Jesus Christ is God’s eternal Son. Being both fully God and fully man; He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, rose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven. He will one day come again to reign as king and judge.
The Holy Spirit persuades us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. As believers the Holy Spirit lives in us, teaches us, equips us with spiritual gifts for effective ministry and empowers us to live, grow, and serve in obedience to God.
The Bible is God’s infallible word. It is the final authority for truth and conduct. Man is by nature sinful and without hope apart from Christ. Salvation is completely God’s work on our behalf through Christ’s death on the cross.
Through Jesus’ death God’s judgement for sin is satisfied. Because of His resurrection all whose faith is in Jesus are no longer guilty of sin. Because salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, the genuine believer is eternally secure that salvation cannot be lost.
People are created by God for eternity. We will either exist eternally with God in Heaven as a result of saving faith or exist eternally separated from God in Hell with no hope of restoration.
