What We Believe
About the Trinity
The Father—We believe God the Father is spirit and is perfect in every way. He has infinite knowledge, power, and presence. He is merciful, kind, compassionate, loving, righteous, just, and holy. The universe cannot contain Him and He fills all things everywhere with His glory. In Him we live and move and have our being.
The Son—We believe Jesus took on human flesh to reveal God to people and that a relationship with God is possible only through the finished work of Christ on the cross. We believe Jesus lived, died, and was resurrected from the dead as proof that He conquered sin and death on behalf of all believers. We eagerly look forward to His literal return.
The Holy Spirit—We believe that the Holy Spirit dwells within every believer. We believe He gives spiritual gifts, comforts, and convicts of sin. We believe the evidence of the Holy Spirit in a believer is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self control.
We believe that all people are in need of salvation from the eternal consequences of sin. We be-lieve that forgiveness of sin only comes as a result of trusting in the death and resurrection of Je-sus Christ (the Son of God) as payment for our past, present, and future sin. We believe that any-one can access the grace – only God can give – to believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, thus restoring a person’s relationship with God for all eternity.
About the Church
We believe the church was God’s idea and is a community of believers and not a building. It was designed by God to be the representation of Jesus Christ on earth. The church exists to love God, to make Him known to a lost world, and to accomplish His will on earth.
About the Eternity
We believe death is not an end, but a beginning. Everyone will spend eternity somewhere. Those who accept God’s offer of salvation through Christ spend eternity with Him in a place the Bible calls Heaven. Those who reject God’s offer of forgiveness through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus, will spend eternity separated from God.
