What We Believe

What We Believe

 

About God:

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequaland are one God. (Genesis 1:1,26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

About Jesus:

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)

About The Holy Spirit:

The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for daily living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. Each Christian seeks to live under His control daily. (Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Galatians 5:25; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18)

About The Bible:

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living.   Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error. (2 Timothy 3:16, 1:13; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 12:6; 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5)

About Salvation:

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.   (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1, 10:9-10)

About Eternity:

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16, 14:17; Romans 6:23, 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-9)

About Water Baptism:

Baptism is a necessary step of obedience for every follower of Christ. It symbolizes what has happened in our hearts as we give our lives to Christ just as He gave his life for us. After Christ gave His life He was buried and then later raised from the dead as a new person. We too are symbolically buried in a grave of water and come out of the water a new person. We are declaring to the world that we belong to Christ and He is our Lord and Savior. ( Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-11; Matthew 3:13-16, 10:32-33, 28:19; Acts 8:12; 36-38, 10:47-48)

About Communion:

This is a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and juice (the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remem-brance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. (Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:23-26)

About Marriage and Sexual Behavior: 

We believe that the term “marriage” has been sanctioned by God and His Word to mean the single and exclusive joining of one man and one woman in holy matrimony. Any form of sexual behavior, outside of marriage, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography, prostitution, rape, any attempt to change one’s biological gender, is sinful and in direct violation of scripture.

Redemption and restoration, through Jesus Christ, is made available to anyone involved in such behavior. Every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be condemned and are not in accord with scripture nor the doctrines of Christ’s Church. (Genesis 2:24, Ephesians 5:32-33, Matthew 19:4-6, I Corinthians 6:9-10; 7:1-2, Romans 1:26-27, Leviticus 18:22)

About Human Life: 

We believe in the sanctity of human life as established by God the Creator and believe that such sanctity extends to all people including the child not yet born, mentally and physically challenged, and those who are at the conclusion of their life here on earth. Life is a gift from God and should be afforded to Him. (Genesis 1:27, 2:7; Psalms 22:9; 139:3-16; Isaiah 44:2, 24; 49:5; Jeremiah 1:5; Acts 17:25)
