What We Believe

Core Beliefs

About the Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us.  
It was written by human authors,
 under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.
It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105; Proverbs 30:5

About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed
in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1,26-27 & 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father.
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’s glory and will return again someday to
earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5 & 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; Romans 1:3-4

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is
present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.
He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.
He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of
spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.
He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved.
As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13 & 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12 & 3:16; Galatians 5:25

About Human Beings

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in
character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation.
Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us
are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”.
This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2

About Salvation

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it.  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.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Titus 3:5; Romans 5:1

About Eternity

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.
Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 2 Corinthians 2:7-9
