Our Vision:

TO BE A LIFE-GIVING CHURCH TO EVERYONE EVERWHERE AND EVERY DAY

Our Beliefs

We won’t compromise on the truth we believe, but we will never share it in a condemning way. We believe Jesus came to give life and we are committed to leading people in a way that will empower them to experience more and more of the life Jesus came to give them.

 

Our mission is also to reach others who have not heard and to teach others who have not been taught. We are to become disciple-makers!

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22
Psalm 90:2
Matthew 28:19
2 Corinthians 13:14

He has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are coequal and are one God.

Jesus is the Son of God.

Matthew 1:22, 23
Isaiah 9:6
John 1:1-5
Hebrews 4:14-15
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Romans 1:3-4
Acts 1:9-11
Colossians 2:9-10
1 Timothy 6:14-15

He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.

The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian from salvation.

Acts 1:8
John 14:16-17, 16:7-13
Galatians 5:25
1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16
Ephesians 1:13
2 Corinthians 13:14
1 Peter 1:2

The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for wholly living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.

The Bible is God's Word to us.

2 Timothy 3:16
2 Peter 1:20-21
Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6
Proverbs 30:5
Isaiah 55:11

The Bible was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error.

People are the supreme object of God's creation.

Genesis 1:27
Isaiah 53:6
Romans 3:23
Isaiah 59:1-2
Psalm 139:13-16
Colossians 2:13-15

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our life.

 

Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it.

Romans 6:23
Ephesians 2:8-9
John 14:6
Romans 5:1, 5:8, 10:9-10

We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

People will exist eternally with or without God.

John 3:16, 14:17
Romans 6:23
Revelation 20:15
Phillippians 2:5-11
Matthew 25:31-34 , Matthew 25:41

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.

Our Practice

Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.

Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to "fulfill all righteousness."

Communion celebrates the Gospel

 

The Lord’s table consists of two elements: the bread and cup. Those elements are symbolic of the body and blood of Christ. Communion is a memorial of Christ’s sufferings on the cross and a celebration of our salvation. It is an opportunity for a believer to examine himself and experience forgiveness.
