There is one Creator, God who eternally exists in three Persons
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4,
Matthew 28:19, Isaiah 44:6, Revelation 1:17).
In the Person and work of the Holy Spirit
who convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement (John 16:8).
It is He who indwells us and empowers us to live a life of godliness (Acts 1:8).
We believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available today and are necessary
for the edification of the body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11; Romans 12:3-16).
In the deity of Jesus Christ
(Romans 9:5, Philippians 2:5-6, Colossians 2:9, 1 Timothy 3:16),
His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:21-23), His sinless life
(John 8:46, Hebrews 4:15,7:26), His vicarious, substitutionary
and atoning death (Isaiah 53:1-12, 2 Corinthians 5:21,
1 Timothy 2:5-6), His bodily resurrection (John 11:25, Acts 1:3,
Revelation 1:18), His ascension to the right hand of the Father
(Mark 16:19, Acts 7:55), and His return to earth in power and
glory (Revelation 1:7, Revelation 19:11-16).
Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ Jesus
who defeated sin and death through His atoning work upon the cross
(Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5). We believe that good works are an essential
part of the Christian faith, but good works do not equal salvation; however
they are the result of salvation (Ephesians 2:10; Philippians 2:12-13; John 15:4-5).
The Bible to be the inspired Word of God
having absolute authority over our lives, providing us
with all that we need to live godly, productive lives, and
without error in all matters to which it speaks; matters
spiritual, moral, historical, geographical and scientific.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21).
The Church is God’s new society and community pictured in scripture as
God’s kingdom, God’s family, and God’s temple (Ephesians 2:19-22).
We believe that the purpose of the Church is to glorify God and to evangelize
and disciple people of every nation. (1 Peter 2:5,9; Matthew 28:19-20).
