WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Word of God
We believe that the word of God (the Bible) is the only authority, and is inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is the only truth that we must live by. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; Mark 13:31
We believe in One God who created the universe and everything in it.
Isaiah 43:10-13; Isaiah 44:24; Deut.6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three manifestations: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 4:4-6
We believe Jesus died on the Cross for our sins, that we may be forgiven. And that HE was bodily raised to life on the third day. Luke 23: 33-34; Luke 24: 1-7; Isaiah 53: 3-7
We believe that Jesus Christ will come back again to gather up His Church.
Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life. John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10
We believe we have ‘eternal life’ by accepting God’s plan of Salvation which is accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. 1 John 5: 10-12; Romans 10:9; Acts 4:11-12; Colossians 2:6; Ephesians 3:16-19; Ephesians 5:18; 1 Timothy 2:5
We believe salvation is a free gift that comes from accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. Salvation is obtained by grace alone, through faith alone, in the work of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-10
Spiritual Unity of Believers
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church. 1 Corinthians 12:12, 27; Ephesians 1:22-23
We believe in being ‘baptized’ by full-immersion in water after receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior. Baptism is the outward representation of the inward reality of what took place at our conversion. Romans 6:3-4; Matthew 28:19
