WHAT DOES THE CHURCH BELIEVE?

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
 
We believe that God created man in his own image, but through sin man incurred both physical and spiritual death. Consequently all mankind has fallen short of the glory of God and is in need of salvation.
 
We believe Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is the one true God.
 
We believe the Scriptures teach water baptism for born-again believers.
 
We believe the Scriptures teach a lifestyle of love and peace for all believers.
 
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ as our substitute sacrifice, died on the cross for our sins according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in him are justified as a result of his shed blood.
 
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ, and his ascension into heaven, his present life there for us as high priest and advocate, and that he is coming again to gather his own.
 
We believe that by the grace of God all who in repentance and faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ, are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. We also believe Jesus is the only way for mankind to be reconciled to God. Jesus said, “no one comes to the father except through me.” John 14:6
 
We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust in the everlasting blessedness of the safe and everlasting punishment of the lost.
 
We believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. He will convict, regenerate, seal, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for life and service.
 
We believe marriage is ordained by God as covenant relationship between one man and one woman. We also believe God offers healing, restoration, and hope to any who have been hurt or have hurt others by broken covenants.
 
We believe God is the creator and sustainer of life and life begins at conception. Because of this, we do not condone abortion or euthanasia. We also believe God offers forgiveness, healing, and hope to any who have been involved in either.
 
We believe that the Scriptures of the old and the new Testaments are inspired by God and are the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
