What We Believe

  • The Bible is true. The Bible is divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and how we live. (2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:15-16)
  • God has always existed. He exists in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We call this the “Trinity.” (Deuteronomy 6:4)
  • God created the Heavens and the Earth and all that is in it.(Genesis 1:27) He designed us to be in a relationship with Him. He lovingly designed life and we should obey His instructions for life.(Matthew 5:48)
  • Our sin (disobedience) corrupted His perfect design and destroyed our relationship with Him. This means that we deserve God’s punishment: eternal death (Hell).
  • God defeated our sin. Despite our sinning against Him, God lovingly provided His Son, Jesus Christ to take away our punishment. Jesus Christ is God in the flesh (in a Man). His virgin birth, His sinless human life and His divine miracles proved his identity.(Luke 1:34-35) He had no sin of His own. Yet, He died in our place to pay for our sins. (1 Peter 3:18, Romans 5:8-9) He came back to life, showing His power over death. He ascended into Heaven and is there, alive now. (Philippians 2:6-11, Acts 2:24)
  • We are saved from eternal death (Hell) by believing in Jesus Christ and in His work on the cross. We can’t earn salvation because we all have sinned. (Romans 3:23) Jesus does the work. (Titus 3:4–7)
  • God Provides His Holy Spirit to live in the believer. This empowers us to live a holy life, to witness and work for God. (John 14:15–18, Acts 1:8)
  • The real Church consists of all true believers in Jesus Christ. This is not necessarily those who “go to church” on Sunday.
  • We look forward to God making all things right. This is true hope.
    • Jesus Christ will return to earth to finally make things right and to establish His Kingdom. (Matthew 26:64, Hebrews 10:37, Luke 21:27)
    • God will re-create the Heavens and the Earth.
    • Everyone will be resurrected. (1 Corinthians 15: 20-26, John 5:28–29)
      • The saved (people who believe in Jesus Christ) will be restored and live in God’s presence in the New Heavens and New Earth. (Revelation 21:1–4)
      • Those who don’t believe will exist in eternal punishment. (Revelation 21:8)

Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

1 Corinthians 15: 20-26“But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death.”
John 5:28–29“Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.”
