Our Beliefs

 

The Holy Bible

The Bible is inspired by God. It is the final authority in determining all truths. It is without error and is everlasting. (2nd Timothy 3:16,  2nd Peter 1:20-21, Hebrews 4:12)
 

Jesus Christ

Jesus is the only son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. That he lived a sinless life and was crucified, buried, and resurrected from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is humanities intercessor for sins. (John 1:14, 1st Timothy 3:16, 1st Timothy 2:5, Philippians 2;5-11)
 

Salvation

We are saved by faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is a gift from God and not through our human efforts. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10: 9-10,  John 3:16 , Titus 3:4-7, Acts 16:31)
 

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to make us more effective in witnessing (Acts 1;8, Acts 2:1-4). The nine fruits of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) are the by-product of a spirit filled life and evidence of spiritual maturity. The nine gifts of the spirit are  different manifestations to build up the body (1st Cor. 12:1-11). We are instructed to diligently seek the gifts (1st Cor. 12:31, 14:1 )but must be exercised in a orderly way (1st Cor. 14;26-33)

Trinity

In one God eternally existing in 3 persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28;19, Luke 1:35

 

The blood

That justification, regeneration, and the new birth come by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. That the blood of Jesus was sinless and sufficient to cleanse humanity of all sin. (Hebrews 9;22-26)
 

Healing

Jesus is the only son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. That he lived a sinless life and was crucified, buried, and resurrected from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is humanities intercessor for sins. (Psalms 103:3, Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 8;16,17, Mark 16:17,18, James 5:14-16)
 

Water Baptism

Water Baptism is a commandment of Jesus that speaks of a symbolic testimony to others of a spiritual life change. The word of God speaks to being baptized in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 8;12, John 1;32,33)
 

Communion

This represents the Lords Supper where elements of Bread(body of Christ broken) and juice (blood of Jesus) are taken in remembrance of his suffering for mankind. (Matthew 26:26-29, 1st Corinthians 10:16,17)

Second Coming

Jesus Christ will return to earth to establish his eternal Kingdom. (1st Thessalonians 4:15-17, 2nd Thessalonians 1:7-8, Revelation 1;7)

The Church

The church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying his commandments. The church works together in love and unity, intent on glorifying Christ. (Matthew 16:18-19, Acts 2:41-47 , Acts 5:11-14, Ephesians 1:22-23)
