What We Believe
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. The Godhead exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All three persons of the Godhead are equal in power and form one God.
Jesus Christ is the second person of the trinity. He is the only begotten Son of God. He is equal with the Father. He came in full deity to earth in flesh and blood, lived a sinless life though tempted as a man, was sacrificed on the cross for the sins of the world, was raised again by the Father after three days, and now sits as judge of mankind at the right hand of the Father in heaven. He will come again to take his believers with Him to eternally reign by His side forevermore.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. He is equal with God yet different in function. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with the power for living, understanding spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.
Human beings are made in the spiritual image of God. They are the supreme object of God’s creation. Human beings are born into sin, and by this sin are separate from God. People are unable to save themselves.
Salvation is a free gift of God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as the atonement for sin can man be saved from sin’s penalty.
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. It is inspired by God and is inerrant.
Humans were created to live forever. They will either exist eternally with God or eternally separate from Him. To be with the Lord for eternity is heaven, and to be eternally separated from the Lord is hell.
