OUR BELIEFS

OUR BELIEFS
  • The scriptures (The Bible) are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.
     

  • There is only one true God revealed in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
     

  • In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s Son, Jesus was both fully human and fully divine. The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.
     

  • Though originally good, man willingly fell to sin ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
     

  • Every person can have restored fellowship with God through "salvation" (accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness for sin.)
     

  • Water baptism by immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation and Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.
     

  • The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.
     

  • The Church has a mission to reach all who’s hearts are far from God. We believe "the Church" is the body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son, Jesus Christ.

     

  • We believe healthy, thriving horizontal relationships (person to person) occur in community as we commit ourselves to the vertical relationship of person to God
     

  • Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins.)
