What We Believe
The Bible is the Word of God.
"All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right." 2 Tim 3:16
God's Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority, and we accept the Bible as our manual for living. Our first question when faced with a decision is, "What does the Bible say?" We practice daily Bible reading and Bible study. The Bible is the basis for all that we believe.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
Jesus Christ, second Person of the Trinity, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between God and us. He baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit and will return to earth to consummate history.
You must be born again.
When anyone becomes a Christian, he becomes a new person inside. The old passes away, a new life has begun." 2 Corinthians 5:17
God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God's saving grace to stop living a life separated from Him. Salvation comes only through God's grace - not human effort - and must be received by repentance and faith. At the end, everyone will experience bodily resurrection and judgment. Only believers will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.
Believers can be Spirit-Filled and Spirit-Led.
"... you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you..." Acts 1:8
"... be filled with the Holy Spirit" Ephesians 5:18
We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God's power within us. Every believer can be filled with the Holy Spirit by simply asking. We seek to practice a daily dependence on God's Spirit to enable us to do what is right
