What We Believe...

 

ABOUT GOD...
     God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of the universe.  He is one being who exists eternally in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  God is the Father of Jesus Christ and is our Father who will provide for all our needs.  God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and is present everywhere.  He is both perfect and personal

ABOUT JESUS...
     Jesus Christ is the Son of God and all things were created through Him.  He came as God in the flesh to give His life as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world.  Jesus was resurrected from the dead, and is alive today and forever.  He is the King of Kings who is coming again.  He will be victorious over all evil.  Jesus is the solution to man's sin and desires to be Savior and Lord of our lives.

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT...
     The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son.  The Holy Spirit is a person, not some impersonal force.  As a Counselor and Comforter, the Holy Spirit lives within the Christian, teaching us the truth, helping us to live right, and reminding us of Jesus.  The Holy Spirit provides the power for us to be witnesses and servants of Jesus.

ABOUT PEOPLE...
     Man and Woman were created in God's image.  They were tempted by Satan and chose to rebel against God.  Our tendency, because of rebellion, is to do evil.  On our own we cannot make ourselves good.  We can be made righteous and find forgiveness for our sinsonly through Jesus Christ.  We can have an abundant life here, and an eternal life hereafter only by God's grace through Jesus Christ.

ABOUT THE BIBLE...
     The Bible is the inspired Word of God.  It is our guide, declaring the truth about God, proclaiming what we should believe and how we should live.  The Bible is for everyone to read so that all may hear God speak to their hearts and minds.  The Bible's goal is to present God's plan to redeem man through Jesus Christ.  The Bible is a book of blessing, and all Christians should acquaint themselves with it.

ABOUT THE CHURCH...
     The church is the body of Jesus Christ.  It includes people of every race who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior.  Jesus Christ is the head of the Church.

 ABOUT COMMUNION & BAPTISM...
    
As a church, we observe two ordinances that were instituted by Jesus.  They are Baptism and the Lord's Supper.  Jesus gave the ordinances to the Church to proclaim his message and to build up His people.  In a world of so many languages, the unity of Christians is clearly expressed through these two common acts.  We believe that these ordinances are to be observed as they were in the day of the Apostles.
