BELIEFS

 

THE SCRIPTURES-The Holy Bible was written by men who were under the guise of the Holy Spirit; that is, they were both divinely inspired and divinely led by God in their writing. The Scriptures are true in their entirety and without error.

GOD-God is the Creator of all things. Everything was made by Him and for Him. He exists in three Persons, but is one God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 

MAN-God created man in His image and for His glory. While in the Garden of Eden, Satan tempted both Eve and Adam and sin became ingrained into our very nature. The only hope we have to save us from our sin is salvation through Jesus Christ, our Lord, our Savior, and our God.

SALVATION-Salvation is the only hope that we have from sin and such a salvation is only attainable through Jesus Christ. Obtaining salvation is laid out very simply by the Apostle Paul in Romans 10:9-10. He writes that if we believe in our hearts that God has raised His Son Jesus Christ from the dead, and confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord (Yahweh), then we are saved. 

THE CHURCH-We don't believe that the church is just a building. Rather, we believe that the church is a body of Christians who serve each, our community, our nation, and our world while sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER-Baptism occurs after a person accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Baptism is meant to to be symbolic of a person's inward change as we baptize the believer by full immersion into water to represent the washing of their sins. 

EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS-Jesus Christ left us with the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20. We believe that we are to GO and share our faith with others, training them in the same way Christ trained His disciples while also serving each other and those in need.
