What We Believe

The Bible

 
We believe that God inspired the whole Bible. This includes all sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments. This means that God told the writers of the Bible what to write. Because God told the writers what to write, there are no errors in His Word. In fact, the Bible has no contradictions and lines up with history, geography, and science
 
The Bible plays a huge role in the lives of Christians. Since it is the Word of God to his people, we do not need other written works. It tells us who God is, who we are, and how to best live for Him and others.
Because man can make mistakes, and God never does, the best interpretation of the Bible is through the Bible itself. This means that to better understand one part of the Bible, we should compare it to the rest of the Bible. This makes the Bible the ultimate authority in every thing.
II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21; I Thessalonians 2:13

The Godhead

 
We believe that there is only one true God.  He has always existed and always will exist.
 
God is three persons in one.  He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  This is called the Trinity.  Every Member of the Trinity has a distinct personality, responsibility, and function.  They are, however, equally perfect and divine. They are united in their work to complete the Will of God.  Each Member has a specific role.
Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 45:21-22

Jesus Christ

 
We believe in Jesus Christ as the perfect Son of God and God the Son.  He is able to not sin and not able to sin.  He is God incarnate, meaning he took on the form of a man.  He was able to do this due to the will and empowerment of the Holy Spirit.  He had no earthly father meaning his mother was a virgin.
 
We believe that when Jesus Christ died on the cross, He was the only true sacrifice for our sin.  His death covered the sins of the whole world. Three days after he died, he was resurrected into heaven.Jesus is our High Priest.  He sits on the right hand of God the Father. There, he intercedes on the behalf of believers.
 
 Jesus is both fully God and fully human. The divine and human characteristics of Jesus are united in one person. Since Jesus is both God and man, he is the only one who’s worthy enough to be our mediator. Jesus Christ is the reason we have access to God.
Matthew 16:13-16; John 10:36
 

 The Holy Spirit

 Man

 Salvation

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity.  He is sent by the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit does many wonderful things.  He helps people realize who Jesus is.  He helps people realize they need a Savior.  He holds Satan and evil back from running rampant on earth. He is a witness of truth.  He helps people grow in their faith (Sanctification).  He instructs people through the Word of God.  He brings comfort to people.  He guides God’s children.  He gives us the strength and gifts and abilities that we need to serve the Lord.   He guarantees our salvation.  He lives inside of us. He prays on our behalf.  He gives every believer spiritual gifts. His presence in our lives is an absolutely essential part of living day to day for the Lord.
John 16:12-16; Titus 3:4-6
We believe that man was created by an immediate act of God and not by a           process of evolution; that he was created in the image and likeness of God, possessing personality and holiness; that he was endowed with power of rational and responsible choice in view of moral ends; and that the purpose of his creation             was to glorify God (Genesis 1:27; Colossians 3:10; Acts 17: 24-28).

We believe that in the providence of God, man was brought to trial in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1-6). Under trial he lost his holy estate, incurring spiritual death for himself and all of humanity (Romans 5); was alienated from God (Ephesians 4:18); and became depraved physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually by voluntarily transgressing his positive             command, and yielding to the enticement of Satan. In consequence of this act of disobedience, the entire human race became involved in sin so that in every heart there is by nature that evil disposition which eventually leads to responsible acts of sin and to just condemnation (Genesis 3:1-6; Romans 1:19-32, 3:10-12,3:23, 5:12, 5:18; Ephesians 4:18; I John 1:8-10). We believe that God has provided redemption for men through the             mediatorial work of Christ, who voluntarily offered himself on Calvary as a perfect sacrifice for sin, the just suffering for the unjust, bearing sin’s curse and tasting death for every man. Matthew 20:28; Hebrews 9:11-12; I Peter 3:18; Galatians 3:13; Hebrews 2:9; I Timothy 2:5-6

We believe that the salvation of sinners is through the Son of God, who is the Savior by virtue of his substitutionary death for sinners (Ephesians 5:23, II Peter 1:3-15); salvation is completely dependent upon the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-9); can be obtained only through the gift of God (Ephesians 2:9; Romans 6:23); that man can in no way merit salvation (Titus 3:5); the conditions of salvation are with repentance and faith in the resurrected Son of God (Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 16:31); the instruments of salvation are the Word of God (Romans 10:17; I Peter 1:23), and the Holy Spirit who applies the Word to the heart of man to bring conviction of sin (John 15:26; 16:7-11); that in salvation the believer is elected, called, regenerated, converted, justified, adopted, sanctified, and glorified (Romans 8:30), forgiven of sins (Colossians 1:14), and endowed with all spiritual blessings in Christ (Ephesians 1:3-14); that the true believer is secure in Christ, nothing being able to separate him from God, and that this security is dependent upon God’s ability to keep the believer and not the believer’s ability to keep himself Romans 8:35-39; John 10:27-29; Philippians 1:6; II Timothy 1:12).
