We believe in one God, creator of all things. He is all knowing, all powerful, all present, and eternally good. He exists as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19; John 14:16-26; Genesis 1:1-2:25; John 1:1-4; Isaiah 53:1-6; John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 1:3-6)
We believe Jesus is the Son of God. He is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died on the cross as a sacrifice to redeem humanity's sin. He rose physically on the third day and sits at the right hand of God. He is our great High Priest who speaks of God on our behalf. He is preparing a place for us and when He is ready, He is coming again to judge the world. Salvation is only attainable through His name.
(Philippians 2:5-8; Luke 1:26-35; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Peter 2:21-24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-5; Acts 1:9-11; Ephesians 1:18-23; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-16; John 14:1-6)
We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and assists the believer in the pursuit of holiness. He lives inside each believer when they surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. He empowers each believer with unique spiritual gifts to use for the advancement of God's kingdom. He guides, teachers, comforts, and seals the believer until the day Jesus returns. We do not practice speaking in tongues in our corporate worship services.
(Ezekiel 36:27; Joel 2:28-32; John 14:26; John 16:7-11; Acts 2:43; Acts 8:18; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Corinthians 14; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 3:16-17; Ephesians 4:30; 2 Timothy 1:6)
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant word of God. Each book is reliable and truthful and contains the final revelation of God's will for humanity. The Bible is our final authority for our life, our faith. and our church.
(1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:11, 105; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4)
We believe salvation is a free gift that must be accepted. Every person has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Sin has separated us from our loving God and can only be mended through a relationship with Jesus. God continues His loving pursuit of humanity in the hope that all will be saved. A repentant life, a confession of Christ's Lordship, and baptism by immersion are primary responses of our faith as modeled in the New Testament.
(John 3:1-21; Acts 2:37-39; 8:26-39; 10:1-48; 16:11-34; 22:2-16; Romans 3:21-31; 5:6-11; 6:1-23; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 15:1-58; Galatians 3:13-14; Ephesians 2:8,9; Hebrews 9:11-14; 10:10-13; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 1:8-10)
We believe the church is the greatest hope for a hurting planet. The church is not a place but a people. As the body of Christ, we will exhaust ourselves in helping people find and follow Jesus. We will encourage people to spend their time, talent, and treasure to this call.
(Matthew 5:16; Matthew 28:18-20; John 13:34-35; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:14-17; Romans 10:14-15; Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:27; Colossians 1:18; 1 Peter 2:9-10)
