What We Believe

What We Believe About God

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three distinct Persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. That they are equal in power and glory and that this triune God upholds and governs all things. He has revealed Himself in the Bible in these ways:

As the Father: He is the All Loving, All Knowing, All Present, Almighty Creator of all things. He is a loving and merciful God. That He truly loves and concerns Himself with mankind whom He created. That He hears and answers our prayers and saves from sin and death all who come to Him through His Son Jesus.

As the Son Jesus: He is God come to Earth in the form of man, He lived a life here as we do, was tempted in every way we are and yet remained sinless. That He was manifest here through a virgin birth via the Holy Spirit and He is the only begotten Son of God. That He went to the cross and died a substitutionary atoning death for our sins and rose again on the third day, ascended back to heaven and will physically and visibly return. That He is our Savior and it is only through faith in Him that man can have a relationship with God and be assured of Eternal Life.

As the Holy Spirit: He is the Spirit of the Living God who lives with us in this world and dwells in all those who have been Born Again. He is the Spirit of Truth, the Comforter, the Counselor who leads us and guides us in all Truth and Righteousness if we open our lives to Him. He exalts Jesus Christ as Lord, empowers us as believers to live a Christian life and to be witnesses of the Gospel of Peace. He also grants us gifts and abilities to that end.

What We Believe About the Bible

The bible is the written Word of God. That it is the inspired inerrant (without error) Word of God. That it is relevant and timeless and it is the Truth. That it is the first authority for our life and faith in Jesus and that it reveals the nature and heart of God. That it should be studied and taught.

What We Believe About Spiritual Gifts.

We believe all the Spiritual gifts mentioned in the New Testament are available for the church today and made manifest for His glory and honor and not our own. That there is order and purpose to those giftings and they should be in line with the Word of God and not contradictory to it. That they should be sought after and desired for the use of bringing glory and honor to Him and building up and edifying the body.

What We Believe About the Church

We believe in the universal church of Christ, which is compromised of all believers and is the living body of Christ and that He is the head over it. That we are many differing members and parts of this body of Born Again believers and we all have our place and function within the body. That the church is to celebrate communion and is to water baptize (full immersion) all those who believe. That the church should be community minded and oriented rather than being isolated and “holed up” in some building. That we are here to impact the community for Jesus and shine His light and Love.

What We Believe About End Times

We believe in the Pre-tribulation rapture of the church, that we will be caught up with Him prior to the great tribulation, which Jesus will come again and set up His Millennial Kingdom and there will be final judgment of all men to everlasting life or everlasting death. We believe in a literal Heaven and Hell.

What We Believe About the State of Man

We believe all have sinned and all fall short of the glory of God. That we are sinful by nature and in need of a Savior. That this sin separates us from a righteous and holy God. That we are saved by Faith in Jesus and the atoning work that was done at the cross and that is by Grace that we are saved. That there is nothing we can do to save ourselves, but this Saving Grace was a gift given to us by the Father, through the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit it is received by faith. That when we do accept this gift that a regeneration occurs via the Holy Spirit and we become new creations in Christ and that we are Born Again by the Spirit and experience a spiritual rebirth. The fruit of which is love and a changed life. That this gift of Salvation is open and available to all mankind and birthed out of God’s great love for us. That there will be a bodily resurrection and judgment of all mankind; some given to eternal life and some to eternal damnation.
