BELIEFS

ABOUT GOD

There is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-creators and each possess all of the attributes of God.

ABOUT THE BIBLE

Our foundation is based firmly upon the Bible as our final authority on Christian beliefs and as a guide to living. The Bible is divinely inspired by God, the original language is without error, given to mankind so that we may know and understand the truth of God and His love.

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is one with God the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for all sin, and was raised from the grave after three days to demonstrate His defeat of sin and death. He ascended into heaven and will return again to earth to reign as our powerful Leader and Forgiver.

ABOUT COMMUNION

The Lord's Supper is to be observed as a memorial and an expression of fellowship with the Lord and with one another. As a memorial, we are reminded of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross for our sins. As an expression of fellowship, we are reminded of the unity of believers in Christ.  The Lord's Supper is not limited to our members, but is open to all those who belong to Him.

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is one with God the Father and Jesus Christ. Those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will receive the Holy Spirit to live inside them. The Holy Spirit serves as our comforter, guide, and advocate. The Holy Spirit is given to Christians and provides guidance in living, an understanding of the Bible, and prayerfully intercedes for them.

ABOUT BAPTISM

Baptism refers to the total immersion in water, of a believer who has repented of sin and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.  The Apostle's belief of Baptism, was that it was for the remission (forgiveness) of sins and as an oath of allegiance (total loyalty) to Christ.  Baptism identifies us with Christ.
