Essential Beliefs

We believe that:

  • In essential foundations -- we have unity. (Ephesians 4:4-6)

  • In non-essential beliefs -- we have liberty. (Romans 14:1,4,12,22)

  • In all our beliefs -- we show love.  (1Corinthians 13:2)

We believe . . . 

 

. . . the Bible to be true in every way and to be the one true guide for our lives. 

 

. . . in the Trinity -- that there is one God, Who has revealed Himself as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  

     

. . . Jesus Christ is God and that He became a man.  We believe He lived a sinless human life and then died for our sins.  We believe He came alive again after His death and is now in Heaven.  We believe He will one day return to this earth in power and glory. 

 

. . . each human being must receive the gift of eternal life through faith in Christ in order to live forever in heaven with God, after he or she dies.  God gives eternal life to those who confess their sins, are willing to turn away from them, and completely trust in Jesus to save them from sin’s punishment through His shed blood on the cross. 

 

. . . in the ministry of the Holy Spirit Who shows us when we sin, helps us to turn from sin to godly living, and empowers us for Christian service. 

 

. . . the Church was created by Jesus and that He is its Leader. 

 

. . . one day all people will spend eternity in either Heaven or hell.
