The Trinity

We believe in one God eternally existing as one essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God, yet there is one God.

  • Matthew 28:18-20

God The Father

We believe that God the Father  orders and directs all things according to His purpose and pleasure. He has created humanity to bring Him glory and honor, through His grace. While He is transcendent, He is also actively involved in His creation — offering an eternal relationship with us through His Son, Jesus Christ.

  • Matthew 6:9
  • John 5:19-24
  • Ephesians 1:3-6
  • Ephesians 2:1-10

Jesus

We believe in God the Son, eternally begotten but not made, who in history assumed to Himself a human nature for the sake of our salvation . He is fully God and fully man. Through Him, all things came into being and were created. He was before all things, and in Him, all things hold together by the word of His power. He suffered, died, was buried, resurrected, ascended and sits at the right hand of the Father until He returns for the final judgment and consummation of the Kingdom.

  • Hebrews1:3
  • Colossians 1:15-20

The Holy Spirit

We Believe in God the Holy Spirit who executes the will of God in this world through humanity, by leading, guiding, filling, teaching, and convicting. He equips believers upon conversion by giving the gifts to be used for the building up of the church, and by bearing fruit through their yielded lives.

  • John 15:26-27
  • John 16:5-16
  • 1 Corinthians 12
  • Galatians 5:16-25

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the word of God, and every word in the original writings is inspired by God and is without error. The Word of God reveals God’s nature and will for all of humanity, and, because of this, it is to be the foundation of faith and practice.

  • II Timothy 3:16–17
  • II Peter 1:20–21
  • Hebrews 4:12
  • John 17:17

Humanity  

We Believe mankind  were created in the image of God, destined to enjoy an intimate relationship with God, fulfilling His will here on earth. But because of Adam and Eve’s willful sin in the garden, sin entered into the world, and has infected all of humanity. Therefore, because of our inherent sinful nature received from our father Adam, we are all separated from God, spiritually dead, and destined for physical death and an eternity removed from God.

  • Genesis 1-3
  • Romans 1: 18-32
  • Romans 3
  • Romans 5
  • Ephesians 2:1-3

Salvation

We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as the only sufficient sacrifice, offering the atonement of sins for all mankind through His death, burial, and resurrection. While salvation is available to all, it is only experienced by those who respond to His gracious gift by faith apart from works. For those who do respond, we are regenerated and baptized by the Holy Spirit, becoming children of God, given a new nature and placed into the universal body of Christ. As a result of our new relationship with God through His Son Jesus, we are now called to a life of submission to the Holy Spirit, manifesting spiritual fruit, and walking in good works that God has prepared beforehand for us to do.

  • Galatians 3:26

The Church

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ sent into the world to shine forth the glory of God.

God, by His Word and Spirit, creates the Church, calling sinful humanity into the fellowship of Christ’s body . By the same Word and Spirit, He guides and preserves that newly redeemed humanity. The Church is made up of those who have become genuine followers of Jesus Christ and have personally appropriated the gospel. The Church exists to worship and glorify God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The ministry of the Church is an extension of the ministry of Jesus in the power of the Spirit.The ultimate mission of the Church is to bring glory to God by making disciples . The Church is called to make disciples through worship, prayer, teaching of the Word, observance of the ordinances, fellowship, the exercise of our gifts and talents, and the proclamation of the gospel both in our community and throughout the world.
