We believe that the Bible is the inspired
Word of God. It is where we learn the
truth about God and about how to have a relationship with God.
We believe in one God who exists as three
Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Father gave His Son
as a sacrifice for the sins of the world.
We believe that Jesus was and is God the Son
and the Messiah promised in the Old Testament.
We believe that He lived a sinless life, that He died on the cross to
pay for our sins, that He rose from the dead to give us life, that He ascended to
heaven to serve as our High Priest—to intercede for us, to pour out His Spirit
on us, and to prepare a place for us.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s
presence in the world today. He is
convicting the world of sin and righteousness and judgment. He is active in the lives of disciples of
Jesus, baptizing and indwelling those who receive Him. We believe that He can empower anyone to do
anything He wants to in order to bring glory to God and to bear witness to Jesus—including
those spiritual gifts mentioned in Scripture.
We believe that salvation comes to those who
repent of their sin and live with faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and
Savior. We believe those who do those
are to be immersed in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy
Spirit—in the name of Jesus—and to also be immersed with the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus is coming again. We believe that He will come receive His
Bride—the Church—in what is referred to as “The Rapture.” We believe there will be a literal seven-year
Tribulation Period on earth in which God pours out His wrath and judgment. We believe Jesus will return to earth with
His Church at the end of this period. We
believe Jesus will rule and reign on earth for 1,000 years and that this will
be a wonderful time of peace. We believe
after this God will create a New Heaven and a New Earth in which all of His
people will live with Him for all eternity in holiness and sweet
We believe that until Jesus comes again, we—His
people—are to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, living for
Him in this world, speaking against evil and wickedness and standing up for
what is right and true, seeking to bring everyone we can into the Kingdom of
