Our beliefs on...
God is the Creator, Sovereign Ruler, and Lord of all (Acts 17:24-25). His desire is to have a personal relationship with us as He leads us and changes us in our short time on earth (Jeremiah 29:11-13).
Jesus is God's only Son, sent by the Father to pave the way to God and salvation for all people through His own sacrifice (John 3:16). In Him alone is established a saving relationship to God (John 14:6). We believe in His miraculous birth (Matthew 1:23), perfect life (Hebrews 4:14-15), saving death (Hebrews 2:14-15), and physical resurrection (I Corinthians 15:3-8).
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is God's gift to us when we enter into a relationship with Him (Acts 2:38). The Spirit is God's presence in our lives that demonstrates His commitment to our eternal salvation (Ephesians 1:13-14). The Spirit leads us to a life that honors God and gives us peace (Galatians 5:22-23).
The Bible is God's inspired Word (II Timothy 3:16), revealing His will and intentions for all people. It is a guide by which we live (Psalm 119:105). We believe that the words of life are revealed through scripture (John 6:68).
Salvation is from God through Jesus (Acts 4:12). It is God's desire that we put away our old self and allow Him to clothe us with new life as He cleanses us of sin (Romans 6:3-4). This "spiritual resurrection" is symbolized by the act of baptism, which God desires all who believe in Him to experience (Mark 16:15-16). This saving relationship to God is the only way a person can be cleansed of sin, enjoy the removal of guilt, and be blessed with an eternal home with God.
The church is God's family on earth. We believe the church is to represent God in every way, seeking to be like Him (Ephesians 4:22-24). The church is not simply a social organization, but a group of people seeking to honor God and walk with Him in the same way we see how God's people lived in the early history of the church. We are committed to the four-fold purpose of the church as seen in Acts 2 in the earliest days of its existence (Acts 2:42) - devotion to God's teaching, the maintaining of fellowship with believers, the sharing of our blessings with others, and living by faith in the belief of the power of prayer.
HEAVEN & HELL
Heaven and Hell are realities and will be the future, eternal destinations of all people. Heaven is the eternal destination of all who have a saving relationship with God through Jesus. The Son Himself is preparing this final home for us (John 14:1-4). Hell is the final destination for those who do not have a relationship with God (Revelation 20:14-15).
