What do we believe?

 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God.

 

We believe that there is only one God, existing in three persons:  Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

 

We believe that mankind was created good, but lost the hope of life eternal, destroyed his communion with God, and fell under the bondage of sin and death by rebelling against God’s perfect way of life.

 

We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s eternal son who redeemed mankind.  He was born of a virgin through the Holy Spirit, taught me how to live through His sinless life, took the consequences of sin upon Himself in His passing and death upon the cross, arose bodily from the dead on the third day after His death, was seen by His disciples, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return in power and glory.

 

We believe that all are sinners, that all are called to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, that no one can come to the Father except through Jesus Christ, and that no one can come to faith in Christ, repent and attain holiness but by the grace of God.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is freely given to those that receive Him, and that the spiritual gifts are fully functioning in the church today.

 

We believe that at the end of the age there will be two resurrections – one for believers in Jesus to eternal life and glory; and another for those that do not believe to hell, eternal condemnation.
