Doctrine - We Believe
…The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative word of God.
…There is one God Who is holy, eternally existent, revealed in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
…God is the Creator Who sustains all things. He makes humankind in His own image and wants to have a personal relationship with each person.
…Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human. We affirm His virgin birth, bodily resurrection from the dead, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His imminent, personal return to earth in power and glory.
…In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who convicts the world of sin. He indwells, guides and comforts every believer who is enabled to live a godly life and serve according to his/her gifts.
…That Jesus Christ offered Himself on the cross as the only forgiveness of sin. This salvation becomes effective when a person turns from sin, trusts fully in the saving work of Jesus Christ and invites Him to be their Lord and Friend.
…In the resurrection from the dead. For those who are in relationship with Jesus Christ, into heaven and its eternal glory – and for those who are not in relationship with Jesus Christ, into hell and everlasting separation from God.
…That the Christian church is the entire universal body of believers in Jesus Christ. We believe that a local church is a visible expression of this global body, organized together for the purposes of worship, fellowship, discipleship and outreach through loving witness.
…That water baptism and the Lord’s Supper ( also known as “communion”) are the sacraments instituted by Jesus for the church.
