What We Believe:
That Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and arose from the dead.
I Corinthians 15:1 – 8 says: “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.
That the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16 – 17 states: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
That every person has value as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of His glory.
Romans 3:21 – 24 says: “This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
That forgiveness of sins and salvation are available to those who trust in Christ as their Savior and Lord.
John 3:16 simply states: “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
That those putting their faith in Christ need to repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him.
Acts 2:38 says: “Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off – for all whom the Lord our God will call.
That the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and exists to save the lost and edify the saved.
1 Corinthians 12:27 states: “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
Ephesians 4:1 – 16 adds: “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called— one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says: “When he ascended on high, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men.” (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”
That Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords.
1 Thessalonians says: “For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven…and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together…to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
