Welcome

WHAT WE BELIEVE

In the One True God eternally existing in perfect unity in three persons- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

(Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, I John 5:7)

The Bible, both Old and New Testaments was given to us by divine inspiration verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit and is inerrant and infallible in its orginial manuscripts given for our instruction in Christ-like living. (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21)

Jesus was the Word "made flesh" (John 1:14) taking upon Him our nature while remaining the Son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life and died upon the cross as the substitutionary sacrifice for the sin of the world. After His death He arose bodily and ascended into heaven and is now interceding as our High Priest until the time when He will bodily return in power and glory. (Luke 1:34, 35, Philippians 2:5-8, I Peter 2:21-25, Luke 24:1-7, Hebrews 4:14-16, I Thessalonians 4:16-18)

Man was created in God's image but fell into sin thus becoming separated from God and lost; except a person be born again by the Holy Spirit of God he cannot see the Kingdom of God. The salvation that new birth brings is completely by grace through faith, made possible by Jesus' death on the cross. This salvation gives the believer forgiveness of sin and eternal life through the power of the Resurrection of Jesus. (Genesis 1:26, 27, Genesis 3:1-8, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:12-17, John 3:3, John 3:16, Ephesians, 2:8,9)

The church is a called out company of believers baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body united by the risen and ascended Lord Jesus Christ as the body of Christ. (Acts 2:41-47, Matthew 16:16-18, Ephesians 1:20-23, Colossians 3:14, 15)

That until the return of Jesus, believers should be engaged in the activity of fulfilling Jesus' commission to make disciples that make disciples for the glory of God. (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:19,20)
