Our CORE BELIEFS
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth and without error in the original manuscripts. Today we possess authoritative copies that serve as our supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He is one in nature, essence and substance and has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
People are made in the image of God, to be like Him in character and are the supreme object of God’s creation. When the first couple sinned, they brought both physical and spiritual death to the human race. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature, commit acts of sin in their lives and must be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ.
God the Father
God, the Father, is an infinite, perfect, personal spirit who is sovereign over all. He mercifully concerns Himself with the details of each person’s life and He hears and answers prayers. He saves all who come to Him from sin and death.
Jesus Christ is the only Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life, performed miracles and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days and demonstrated His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will physically return again someday to Earth to reign forever as King.
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to convict people of their need for Jesus Christ because of sin, unrighteousness and the judgment to come. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His daily leading.
Everyone is in need of salvation. Salvation is God’s free gift extended to all, but each person must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith.
Once we receive new life in Christ, we seek to demonstrate our love for God by obeying Him and following Him with all our heart, soul and mind. We constantly strive to grow in Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit and loving people as Jesus loved them.
The Bible speaks of the church as Christ’s body in which Jesus is the head and all of Christ’s followers are members. To remain healthy, the body’s members must work together, with each part contributing to each other’s growth and maturity. Since the Church represents Jesus Christ to a needy world, God works through the Church to reconcile a lost world to Himself and be His arm of righteousness in an unrighteous world.
Baptism and Communion
Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water as a one-time, symbolic, public demonstration of the invisible, inner work of God after a person receives new life through faith in Jesus. Communion is a continuing symbolic remembrance of Jesus’ death and sacrifice on our behalf. Jesus instructed believers to continue these practices until He returns.
The Lord Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return to earth and establish His kingdom. Because people are created to live forever, there will be a resurrection of our bodies. People will either exist eternally separated from God in Hell by their sin and unbelief or in union with God in Heaven, through forgiveness and salvation that comes through faith in Christ. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
