OUR BELIEFS

 

ABOUT THE BIBLE: 2 Peter 1:20-21; Romans 16:25-26

The Word of God is final authority in determining all truths.
Written by human authors under the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
Because God inspires it, it is the truth without error.
 

ABOUT GOD: Genesis 1:26-27; Psalms 90:2; Matthew 28:19

God is the Creator.
One God, eternally existent in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

 

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST: Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5; 1:14; 14:10-31; 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6

Jesus Christ is the Son of God
On earth, was all God and all man
Born of a virgin
Sinless life
Perfect sacrifice for our sins, dying on the cross
Arose from the dead to demonstrate power over sin and death
Ascended to Heaven and will return again someday and reign as King
 

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT: Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5; 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17; 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6

Given at Pentecost and still with us today
He is the promise of the Father
Sent by Jesus after His Ascension to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth
 

ABOUT PEOPLE: Genesis 1:27; Psalms 8:3-6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2

Originally made in the image of God, to be like Him in character
All have been born with a sin nature that separates us from God until we receive Christ
 

ABOUT ETERNITY: Matthew 25:34 & 41; John 3:16; Romans 6:23; 8:17-18; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Ephesians 2:5-8; Revelation 20:15

All people will either exist eternally separated from God by sin in Hell or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ in Heaven.
