• We believe in one God, the Father, self-existent and eternal, the creator, sustainer and ruler of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Gen. 1).
  • We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, who is the eternal and only begotten Son of God (John 1:1ff). For us, he came down from heaven and took man’s nature in the womb of the Virgin Mary by miraculous conception of the Holy Spirit. He lived a sinless life and for our sake, he was crucified, suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose bodily from the grave. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father where he intercedes for man until he returns to take his church home.
  • We believe that Christ will return just as he said, in the twinkling of an eye and that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is King of kings and Lord of lords! At Christ return we who are His will be taken up to meet Him in the air and will reign with Him. We do not believe that we should exclude anyone from fellowship based on his or her convictions about the 2nd Coming of Christ nor do we believe that convictions about the 2nd Coming will include or exclude anyone from heaven.
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, who with the Father and Son is worshiped and glorified, convicts men and women of sin and guides them into all truth. Furthermore, the Holy Spirit gives gifts to all men to enable them to do the work of the kingdom. We believe that there is one baptism of the Holy Spirit that takes place when we are immersed into Christ and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).
  • We believe that the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and infallible and inerrant in the original writings (1 Tim. 3:16).
  • We believe that the Church was ordained of God and its central purpose is to glorify God. The Church is composed of all who are united to Him in by faith, at baptism and are thus members of the body of which He is head. All Christians should live in fellowship with the Church, uniting in its worship of the Triune God, participating in its great task of evangelizing the world and loving one another even as Christ so loved the Church.
  • We believe it is the Christian’s duty and privilege to seek the fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission and to minister in His name to a needy world. We are to be instruments of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit ministers’ redemption and reconciliation in the world.
  • We believe that we are to obey the command of Scripture regarding salvation in Christ: That we are saved by grace, through faith (Eph. 2:8), at baptism (Acts 2:38,1 Peter 3:21), Confession of the Lordship of Christ (Rom. 10:9) and a renouncing and repentance (acts 2:38, 3:19) of our old, sinful way of life are all of faith and a part of the process.
  • We believe that healthy families are essential to healthy churches and even to a healthy nation. But we also understand that the church includes many “broken families” and that it is a privilege and a responsibility for us to serve them with compassion and grace. It is one of the vital ministries of the church to promote the family and its well being within the context of a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in tithing; not as seen in its Old Testament concept, but as an act of grace, never coerced but given freely and cheerfully as a response of the grateful heart. Furthermore, we believe that as Christians we are called to give as God enables. We believe that our giving should be cheerful, planned and proportionate (1 Cor. 16:1, 2; 2 Cor. 9:7). We also believe that giving is an act of worship and trust whereby we are saying to God that He has first place and that we trust Him to take care of us when we are faithful to give.
