What We Believe
About the Bible:
We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired by God, infallible and is His revelation to humanity for salvation. The Scriptures serve as the authority and foundation for Christian living.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but as the result of sin, he is lost and powerless to save himself.
Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:7-3:19; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12-21;Romans 6:23
About Jesus and Salvation:
We believe that the only hope for man is to believe in Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of mankind. We believe further in the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the dead. It is by receiving Him as Lord that man is made spiritually alive. This begins a relationship with the living Savior.
John 1:12; John 3:3-7; John 5:24; Ephesians 2:8-10; Hebrews 9:11-28
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved and the lost, the eternal conscious existence of all men either in heaven or hell, and in divine judgments, rewards and punishments. We believe, as well, that Jesus Christ will return in person to earth in power and glory.
