Our BeliefsGOD. We believe that there is one living and true God, who exists in three persons as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All equal in power and authority, the Godhead is the Creator, sustainer, and governor of all things. 2 Corinthians 13:14, The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
BIBLE. We believe that God has communicated to us through the Old and New Testaments, which are true and without error. Scripture is the foundation of our individual lives and the blueprint for His church. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
CREATION. We believe that God created our world and gave it life. He is the Maker, who by simply speaking brought everything into existence and tasked humanity to care for it. Colossians 1:16, For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
JESUS. We believe that God became man so that we might be reconnected to Him. As a man, Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled this mission by His death and resurrection, and as God remains the object of our worship. Isaiah 9:6, For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
SALVATION. We believe that God invites everyone to entrust their lives to Jesus Christ. This act of faith initiates God graciously giving us spiritual birth, a place in His family, purpose in this life, and residency with Him forever. John 1:12-13, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
CHURCH. We believe that God has formed a universal community from those who follow Him. We are connected to each other locally, where we gather to worship Him, be taught by Him, and be sent by Him. Ephesians 2:19-22, Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
LIFE. We believe that God has given us His Spirit to have the liberty, power, and wisdom to live every day for Him. The believer who yields to His presence will experience the supernatural in all areas of life.
SalvationDid you know that you were created to have a loving relationship with God? He is patiently and lovingly waiting for you to respond to His invitation to salvation. Yes, you can receive forgiveness for your sins and assurance of eternal life through faith in His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved" (John 3:16-17). "Now this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent" (John 17:3).
You may be asking yourself: "How can I know God?" Man is able to know the true and living God through His Word (that is, the Bible). The Bible reveals God's character and His plan for mankind. It is through reading His Word that we come to knowledge of the righteousness of God and that which He requires of us.
Man is sinful and separated from God, thus he cannot know and experience God’s love and plan for his life.
Our sin has separated us from God — our corruption is to such a degree that we cannot know Him personally and cannot experience His love. God's Word says, "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Man was created to have fellowship with God, but because of his sin (i.e., anything that is against the righteousness revealed in God's Law) he is prevented from that fellowship. This includes anything less than perfect obedience to God's commands.
"The wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23a). The ultimate result of this death is an eternity in Hell. This spiritual death forces a separation from God. Man is sinful and God is holy. This creates a gulf unbridgeable by man making that intended fellowship impossible. The only solution is a divine bridge — that bridge is Christ.
Jesus Christ is the only way man can reach God. He died in our place. Through Him, you can know and experience God’s plan for your life.
God created a way by sending His Son to pay the price for our sin. "God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). He died in our place; He who knew no sin became sin for us. This removed our burden of sin and allows us to enter into that desired fellowship if we follow His way.
He is the only way. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6).
It is not just enough that you know these truths. We must individually place our trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. It is by repenting of our sins and believing on Christ that we can know God personally and experience His love.
You must each receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then you can experience God’s love and plan for your life.
You can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith. "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation" (Romans 10:9-10). Ask Him into your heart right now. You may want to pray like this:
Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my heart and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person you want me to be. Amen
