What We Believe
We believe that God has revealed Himself and His will to us in His written Word.
We believe that God is one in His being or essence, but within the one being of God there are three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that all people are separated from God because they transgress His laws and none of us can make ourselves acceptable to God by trying our best to live a good life. Being good or being religious cannot take away our sin problem.
We believe that God in His love has provided the only way for people to be forgiven their sins and receive the gift of eternal life with God. This way is through Jesus Christ, God the Son, who became a man so that He could go to the cross and there allow the Father to place our sins on Him and then punish Him in our place. Jesus took the wrath of God we deserve and He died. After paying for all of our sins, He came back from the dead overcoming both sin and death. It is only through the finished work of Christ that God is able to forgive sinners and accept them into His family.
We believe that those who recognize their sin problem and trust Jesus alone to save them from eternal condemnation are forgiven their sins and given the gift of eternal life with God.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit comes to live within each follower of Christ to teach, guide, gift, enable and empower him or her to live God's kind of life. Thus, true believers follow Christ and they grow more and more in their willingness and ability to love God and love others.
