What We Believe

If you are considering supporting our work through prayer and/or financial contribution, you may want to know what we believe.

Trinity

We believe that there is one living and true God, and infinite, all-knowing spirit, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—each equally deserving worship and obedience.

(1 Corinthians 8:4; John 4:24; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

God the Father

God the Father is the Creator of all things. He is the Father of all people. He is the omnipotent ruler of the universe. He saves all those who come to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. He adopts us and becomes our Father.

(Ephesians 4:6; Psalm 103:19; John 1:12; Romans 8:15)

God the Son

Jesus is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, and He accomplished our redemption on the cross where he voluntarily gave up His life for us so that we can be reconciled with God. We believe that Jesus died and then rose from the dead and now sits at the right hand of God and mediates for us.

(Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-2; Philippians 2:5-8; Romans 3:26; Matthew 28:6; Acts 2:30-31; Hebrews 7:25)

God the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine person, eternal. In all the divine attributes, He is coequal with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is our friend, helper and advocate who dwells within us.

(Matthew 28:19; John 14:26; Acts 5:3-4; 28:25-26; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

Way of Salvation

We believe salvation comes only by the grace (gift) of God through the redemption of Jesus Christ and not by any works or human merit.

(Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19; John 1:12)

Baptism

We believe that when one decides to follow Jesus, that decision and trust is demonstrated by obeying His command to be baptized in water symbolizing His death, burial and resurrection.

(Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:37-39; Romans 6:4)

The Church

We believe that the purpose of the church is to glorify God by encouraging one another in our faith through instruction in His Word (the Bible) and fellowship, and by demonstrating God’s love to the world by sharing the gospel and serving and loving others.

(Ephesians 3:21; 4:13-16; 2 Timothy 2:2, 15; 3:16-17; Acts 2:47; 1 John 1:3; Luke 22:19; Acts 2:38-42; Matthew 28:19)
