ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant and inspired Word of God. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” (II Timothy 3:16)
ABOUT THE ONE TRUE GOD
There is one God—He is eternal, He is holy, He has infinite power, and He possesses absolute and indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself as the Father in creation, through His Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit by indwelling.
ABOUT THE GOSPEL
Simply put, the Gospel is the Good News. In a dark and tumultuous world, the Gospel is the good news of God’s light, His peace and His grace. We believe in the Gospel.
At creation, mankind was innocent and pure. Through the sin of disobedience, Adam and Eve fell from that innocent state and introduced sin into the human race.
ABOUT SIN AND SALVATION
Everyone on earth was born into sin, and has sinned; therefore, everyone on earth is in need of salvation. (Romans 3:23-25, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9)
Salvation is attained not through our own merit, but by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We are made partakers of this salvation through obedience to the Scriptures by repenting of our sins, by being baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and by receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with initial evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. We are baptized by this one Spirit into the Body of Christ. (Romans 6:1-6, Acts 2:38, I Corinthians 12:13, I Peter 3:21)
There is no salvation outside of obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
ABOUT THE CHURCH
The Church is the body of Christ, and Jesus Christ is the head.
ABOUT CHRISTIAN LIVING
As Christians, we are to love God and love others. We should live a holy life, both inwardly and outwardly. Our Christian journey should be a progression as we grow continually closer to Him, resembling Him more and more.
We believe that marriage is Biblically defined as a sacred covenant between one man and one woman, instituted by God.
ABOUT THE LORD'S SUPPER
We observe the Lord’s Supper in the taking of communion as a church body. Representative of the body and the blood of the crucified Savior, we partake of unleavened bread and grape juice in remembrance of His perfect sacrifice for us.
ABOUT THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
The gifts of the Spirit that were on display throughout the New Testament are still active in the church today. The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to edify and sanctify the church, to demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and to confirm the power of the Gospel.
ABOUT THE FUTURE
As a bride for her groom, we earnestly anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ when the righteous shall be caught away to meet the Lord in the air. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
