Our Christian Beliefs  

* We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1: 20)

* We believe God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. (Genesis 1; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:3) 

* We believe God is triune, three distinct individuals in one God: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19-20; John 17: 20-21) 

* We believe Jesus is both Lord and Christ, to the Glory of God the Father. (Acts 1:9-11; Acts 2:36; Philippians 2:9-11) 

* We believe that whoever will confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in their heart God raised Him from the dead shall be saved. (Romans 10:9-10; Acts 2:21; John 1:12) 

* We believe that the Holy Spirit is sent by Jesus to indwell, empower, teach, guide and comfort believers. (Luke 12:12; Romans 8; John 16:13; Acts 1:7-8; Acts 9:31) 

* We believe that the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit as evidenced in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, are active today and did not pass away after the first century. Being filled with The Holy Spirit should be evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Spiritual gifts should operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters. (Luke 12:12; Acts 1:5; 2:17-41; Romans 1:11,12:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11, 27-31; 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10; Heb. 2:4)

* We believe that every Christian is called to share the good news of God’s Kingdom. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-18; Acts 1:8)

* We believe that the Lord Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection from the dead provided for healing of the spirit, soul and body of all peoples. (1 Peter 2:24)

* We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ, Who will come to rule as King upon the earth with the saints. (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; Revelations 19:11-21; 22:20) 

* We believe that salvation is the gift of God’s grace. It cannot be gained or made more secure by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. (John 1:12; Acts 16:30-33; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-9)

(Note – for the most part, we share God’s Word from the New King James Version.)
