What We Believe

We believe in one God who created the universe and everything in it.
Isaiah 43:10-13; Isaiah 44:24; Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6

We believe that God became flesh, in Jesus Christ. So He is one with God.
John 1:1-5; John 1:14-18; Isaiah 9:6-7; John 17:20-23; John 17:5; John 16:27-30; John 14:7-11

We believe Jesus died on the cross for our sins, that we may be forgiven. He was raised from death to life on the third day, after having been crucified.
Luke 23:33-34; Luke 24:1-7; Isaiah 53:3-7

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 in being baptized by full immersion after receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior. We do not believe that water baptism saves a person. Salvation is a free gift by accepting Jesus.
Romans 6:3-4; Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 2:8-10

We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit through ordinary people, and that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are relevant for today.
1 Corinthians 12; John 1:33; Acts 1:5-9; 2:1-18; 1 Corinthians 14:2-4, 14-19

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. We do not believe or accept any other teachings and beliefs.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; Mark 13:31

We believe that Jesus Christ will come back again to gather up His Church.
Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

We believe there is a real "heaven" and a real "hell." Where we spend our eternity is determined by which one we choose while we're alive. There are no second chances after death.
Revelation 21:22-27; 20:10-15; Hebrews 9:27-28
