What We Believe
Jesus Christ was completely human, but at the same time completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are enemies of God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we could have life. The entire Bible is a story of God’s redemptive plan through the one Godman Jesus Christ.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
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 was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives. We also believe that the Bible is ultimate authority. We believe that all scripture is God-breathed, that the entire Bible is the story of God’s redemptive plan through Jesus to redeem his people. We believe that the Bible is the main way that God currently speaks to his people, however, not the only way. In scripture we see that God speaks through other means, but those other means must always be supported by the ultimate mean; which is scripture.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.
The gospel is a historical event that was planned somewhere in eternity past. Within that historical event, Jesus who is God incarnate and knew no sin, was murdered on the cross for our sin. While on the cross Jesus bore the sins of man, paid our debt and satisfied the wrath of God, which man deserved. Jesus physically died on the cross, was buried in a tomb, and literally rose from the dead three days later. Through this historical and supernatural act of love, God fulfilled his redemptive plan to redeem his children and provide a way for us to live in relationship with him. By repentance of sin and faith in Christ as Lord and Savior, sin is forgiven and you are saved. Your name is written in the Lambs book of life and you will spend eternity in the presence of Almighty God forever. The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the “only way” of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God and it cannot be earned through our own effort.
