WHAT WE BELIEVE

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and therefore is the final authority in our understanding of God, the practices of the church, and our lives. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

There is one God, who is one being (or essence) but eternally existing in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Romans 8; Ephesians 1:13-14)

 

God, out of love for all people, sent His son Jesus to show us how to live a righteous life, to die for our sins, and to rise from the dead. (John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8)

 

All have sinned, but all can be saved. Salvation is a free gift of God that cannot be earned. The death of Christ on the cross is the only sufficient payment for our sins. This salvation is available for any who put their faith in Christ as their Lord and Savior.(Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23)

 

Those who put their faith in Christ should repent of their sins, confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and Savior, and be baptized. (Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38)

 

The church is the Body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the task of reaching the lost and discipling the saved, helping them to become devoted followers of Christ. (Ephesians 4:1-16)

 

Christ will return one day and reign forever. (1 Thessalonians4:13-18)

 

How do I become a follower of Jesus?
