What We Believe

 

“Our Vision is to Reach Out with the Love of Jesus to all people…”

 

We believe that the Bible, composed of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament, are the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God.  That the scriptures are the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice and there are no other writings similarly inspired of God.

We believe that there is one true, Holy Triune God who is eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the eternal second Person of the Trinity.  Born of sinless flesh, Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third day.  He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father where He is the only mediator between God and man, continually making intercession for His own, and will come again.

The Holy Spirit is the eternal third Person of the Trinity.  He was sent into the world by the Father and the Son to apply to mankind the saving work of Jesus.  He enlightens the minds of sinners to their need for a savior.  At the point of salvation He permanently indwells every believer.  The Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers them to live a Holy life and endows them with gifts for the building of the Body.  He guides believers in understanding and applying the scriptures.

The central purpose of God’s revelation in scripture is to call all people into fellowship with Himself.  We believe in a literal heaven and a literal hell.  That the only way to salvation and to heaven is through Jesus Christ.  This is a work of God’s free grace and not the result of human work or goodness. Salvation must be personally appropriated by repentance and faith. 

We believe that there will be a final judgment for all people, that will determine their fate.  Unbelievers will be received into eternal torment and separation from God in hell.  Believers will be received in eternal communion with God in heaven.  This final judgment will be a result of our own individual decision to receive or reject God in the person of Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior. 

“…Choose For Yourselves This Day Whom

You Will Serve…”
