WHAT WE BELIEVE
If you declare with your mouth,
"Jesus is Lord,"
and believe in your heart
that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved.
We affirm and believe
the following 9 core,
THERE IS ONE
There is only one true and living God who is the Creator of the universe.
He exists eternally in three persons – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
THE BIBLE IS GOD'S WORD
The Bible is God’s written revelation
of Himself to mankind,
divinely given through human authors who were inspired by the Holy Spirit.
It is entirely true,
and completely authoritative
for matters of life and faith.
PEOPLE ARE CREATED
IN GOD'S IMAGE
Human Beings are created by God
to bear His image.
They are the crowning work of His creation worthy of love, dignity,
regardless of matters like
age, race, gender, or class.
PEOPLE ARE IN NEED
Because of the Fall,
the image of God in people
is distorted but not lost.
All people have disobeyed God
willfully through sin;
thus inheriting both physical and spiritual death and the need for redemption.
All human beings are born with a sin nature
and into an environment inclined toward sin.
Only by the grace of God, through Jesus Christ, can they experience salvation.
JESUS IS BOTH LORD
Jesus is both fully God and fully human.
He was born of a virgin,
lived a sinless life,
died on the cross
as a substitute for mankind,
was raised from the dead,
ascended into heaven,
and will one day return.
JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY OF SALVATION
Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ,
the only mediator between God and man.
No other religion, belief, or person
can reconcile God and man.
He alone can provide
forgiveness and eternal salvation.
SALVATION IS BY
Salvation comes only through a faith relationship with Jesus Christ, the Savior,
as a person repents of sin
and receives Christ’s forgiveness and eternal life.
Salvation is instantaneous and accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit
through the Word of God.
This salvation is wholly of God
by grace on the basis of
Christ’s life, death, and resurrection,
not on the basis of human works.
All the redeemed are secured in Christ forever.
THE CHURCH IS
The Holy Spirit immediately places
all people who put their faith in Jesus Christ
into one united spiritual body, the Church,
of which Christ is the head.
JESUS CHRIST WILL RETURN
God will bring the world
to its appropriate end
in His own time and in His own way.
At that time, Jesus Christ will return
personally and visibly in glory to the earth.
Christ will judge both the saved and unsaved.
Those who have trusted Christ
will receive a glorified body
and dwell forever with the Lord.
