The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible word of God and the final authority in all matters pertaining to Christian faith and practice. [ 2 Timothy 3:16; Romans 15:4]

God

We believe there is only one living and true God – perfect, infinite and eternal.  He exists in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  [Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 1 Peter 1:2; Revelations 22:13]

Jesus Christ

We believe that God became man in the person of Jesus Christ and that Jesus Christ is both completely divine and completely human.  While on earth He lived a sinless life and willingly died on the cross to take humanity’s punishment for sin.  On the third day He rose from the grave and later ascended into heaven.  [Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 17:5; Mark 16:19; Luke 2:11; John 3:16-17; 1 Peter 3:18; Colossians 2:9]

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and that He empowers us for life and service. [ John 14:26; Romans 8:9; Acts 1:8]

Humanity

We believe that human beings were created by God in His image but have alienated themselves from Him through their disobedience (called sin). The punishment for sin is eternal separation from God. Humanity is in need of reconciliation. [Genesis 1:27; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23, 5:12, 6:23; 1 John 1:8]

Salvation

We believe that only through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ we can be reconciled to God as a result of the gift of Jesus’ death on the cross. [John 3:16, 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 6:23, 10:9-10]

Last Things

We believe that Christ will return at God’s appointed time to complete God’s redemptive plan for creation.  At this time all of humanity will be held accountable for their sin and only those who have accepted the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ will live forever with Him. [Matthew 25: 31-46; Acts 17:30-31; Romans 14:10-11; Hebrews 9:27-28; Revelation 20:11-15]
