 WHAT WE BELIEVE

And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. –Acts 2:42

Our Core Beliefs Are…

The Gospel
The Good News that Jesus Christ saves us from our sins.  He willingly died on a Cross, was buried, and rose again to redeem us back to Him.  Our obedience to the Gospel is shown through our repentance (turning away from sin), baptism in water in Jesus’ Name, and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit.  We are called to carry this message of love to everyone, everywhere.
(Luke 19:10; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Mark 16:15)

The Bible
It is God’s Word, relevant for all people.  It is both historically accurate and spiritually powerful.  It reveals the way to God and the way to live. (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12)

God
There is one God, who reveals Himself to us as our Father, His Son, and the Holy Spirit.  He was the Father in creation, the Son in salvation, and the Spirit in indwelling.  All the fullness of God dwells in Jesus. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Colossians 2:9)

Sin & Salvation
Everyone makes mistakes.  These mistakes are called sins and will lead to repercussions.  We need salvation to avoid these repercussions.  Salvation can only come through grace in Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)

Christian Living
The first and greatest commandment is to love God and to love people. We should strive for this love of God and people to be displayed in all areas of our lives and living.  (Matthew 22:36-40)

Tithes and Offerings
The purpose behind our giving is based upon our love for God and to show our appreciation for His many blessings. We believe in supporting the work of the Lord through the giving of tithes and offerings. This is God’s system of financing His work. (Malachi 3:8-11, Luke 6:38, 2 Corinthians 9:6-11).
