WE BELIEVE that God is the creator of the universe. God is infinite and eternal, omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful) and omnipresent (everywhere at the same time). The Godhead exists eternally in three personalities: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Jn. 3:16, Jn. 15:26)
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the final and fullest revelation of God and that he is both fully human and fully divine (Phil. 2:6-7, Col. 1:15-20). Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners (I Tim. 1:15) and that having conquered death he now reigns as Lord of all (Rev. 11:15).
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit fills (Eph. 5:16) anoints (Lk. 4:18) empowers (Acts 1:6) and bestows gifts upon us (I Cor. 12:4-6) to equip the saints for ministry, to edify the body of Christ (Eph. 4:12) and set the captives free (Lk. 4:18).
WE BELIEVE that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, once we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead, we shall be saved (Romans 10:9). Jesus died for our sins (I Cor. 15:3) not because he had to, but because he loves us and that each of us is important, really important, in the eyes and in the heart of God (Jn. 15:13).
WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the inspired word of God written by fallible human beings who were under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and that it contains all things necessary for salvation (II Tim. 3:14-17). According to God's Word and promise, Jesus is coming back in glory and that we shall live with him forever (I Thes. 4:13-18).
WE BELIEVE that the Lordship of Jesus Christ mandates that we tithe, which means giving 10 percent of our gross income to the church, and that the failure to tithe is flagrant disobedience to the word of God (Mat. 3:8-10). And until the time of Christ's return or our departure, God wants us to grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ until we reach full maturity. (2 Peter3:18)
WE BELIEVE in one Church, established by Jesus Christ, and called by many names and manifested in many traditions (Eph. 4:4-6). The Church is called to witness to others and to introduce them to Jesus Christ, who saves us. We believe that any and everyone can become a new person in Jesus Christ. (II Cor. 5:16).
