about us

one church, one heart, working together to make disciples

our church's beliefs about:

god

 

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. God has always existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

jesus christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over death and sin. He ascended to heaven and will one day return to earth again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

the holy spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and Jesus Christ. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives abundantly in every true believer from the moment of salvation. He provides believers with power to live righteously, understand spiritual truth, and guide us in our daily lives. As believers we seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit and live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:-16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18

the bible

The Bible is God’s perfect Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Since the Bible is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 12:6, 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5

mankind

People are made in the image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by disobedience toward God which is called “sin”. This sin separates people from God and causes many problems personally, relationally and in society.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:10, 23; Isaiah 59:1-2

salvation

Salvation is by God's grace, a free gift that we must accept. We can never overcome our sin through any kind of good work. Salvation occurs when we trust that Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sin on the cross. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment a person receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12, 14:6; Titus 3:5, John 5:24

eternal security

Since God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, true believers are secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” your salvation. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by our own self-effort and good works. It is God's grace and keeping power that gives us this security.
John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10-14; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Romans 11:29

eternity

People are created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. People eternally separated will spend eternity in hell. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-9

the church

A New Testament church is a local assembly of born-again, baptized believers that have covenanted together to teach and practice New Testament doctrines and ordinances, to meet together for worship, prayer, fellowship, teaching and a united testimony, and to actively engage in carrying out the Great Commission. The New Testament church began during Jesus's earthly ministry and will never be overcome. Each church is self governing and no committee, convention, person, or other church has any authority over a local church.
Matthew 16:18-19; 20:25-26a; 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; Ephesians 3:21; Hebrews 10:24-25

baptism and the lord's supper

Biblical baptism is the immersion of believers, done in obedience to the Lord's command in order to portray the burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is a public proclamation that has no saving power. The Lord’s Supper is the partaking of unleavened bread and the cup by the members of that local body only as a continuing memorial of the broken body and shed blood of Christ.
Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13, 11:23-26
