Changing the World one person at a time

We Believe:

1. The Bible is the divinely inspired and infallible Word of God.

2. There is one God who exists as Father, Son and Holy Spirit in essence, and co-equal and co-eternal in person.

3. Mankind is inherently sinful, spiritually dead, and by nature, rebellious and stubbornly willful without God. No amount of good deeds or self-help can change this. Only God — who is inherently sovereign, all knowing, loving and just — can help humanity.

4. 2,000 years ago, God sent His Eternal Son, Jesus, who by the power of the Holy Spirit was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death, rose from the dead, is seated at the right hand of the Father, and is coming again in great power to physically reign with His church in His coming kingdom.

5. Belief in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus brings forgiveness of sin. And, through our faith in Jesus we become children of God, sealed unto the day of redemption by the power of the Holy Spirit.

6. God’s gracious offer of salvation facilitates our turning from sin and culminates when our faith is placed in His Son’s sacrifice, as not only payment for our debt of sin but also how we become God’s purchased possession — the Church.

7. The Church is comprised of all God-called believers who have put their faith in the authority and headship of Jesus Christ and have been baptized into the body of Christ.

8. The Church is helped, comforted, sanctified, empowered, and equipped by the Holy Spirit.

9. The purpose of the Church is to bring glory to God by sharing the love of God, preaching the Gospel, and baptizing and making disciples of every nation and people group.

10. Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, and is subsequent to salvation.

11. The Communion (bread and wine) was instituted at the Last Supper by Christ where he admonished His followers to frequently observe in remembrance of His sacrifice until He returns to earth.

12. Discipleship is the training and equipping of believers to faithfully follow Christ and lead others to follow Christ.

13. The goal of every Christian believer should be to mature, to be conformed to the image of Christ, and to be fruitful for Christ.
