WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

"ALL SCRIPTURE IS GOD-BREATHED..."

(2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV)

Our nine core beliefs—about God, people, the Church, the Bible, and Christ’s return—are the foundation of this church. This is what we believe.

 

About God

There is one living, sovereign God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

(Revelation 1:8; Isaiah 43:10-11; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19)


Jesus was sent by the Father to live on earth; he was fully God and fully human, yet had no sin. Jesus willingly laid down his life and, after three days, rose from the grave. In doing this, Jesus fulfilled the payment for the world’s debt of sin. 

(Luke 1:31, 35; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21)


The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and to empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. He lives in every believer and is a constant helper, teacher, and guide. 

 

About People

God created people in his image, and everyone matters to God. 

(Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 5:1-2)


All people are sinners and need God’s forgiveness. 

(Romans 3:23)


Those who confess and turn from their sin, trusting in Jesus Christ, will be saved by grace and become children of God, with the promise of eternal life. 

(John 3:16-17; Galatians 3:26)

 

About the Church, the Bible, and Christ's Return

Jesus Christ is the head of the church and all believing people are members. 

(Ephesians 4:15-16)


The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. 

(2 Timothy 3:16-17)


Jesus Christ will return and there will be a final judgment. 

(Matthew 24:3, 37)
