We Believe In God.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, as both God and man, is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. He ascended to heaven and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance. We believe that to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
THE FALL OF MAN
Mankind was created in the image of God (Genesis 2:26). By a voluntary act of the will, Adam and Eve disobeyed God (Genesis 3:6). That first sin had several repercussions: Man was excommunicated from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:23), a curse was pronounced (Genesis 3:14-19), the process of physical death began (Genesis 2:17), and mankind died spiritually (Romans 5:12-19). Sin separated humankind from God (Ephesians 2:11-18) and left mankind in a fallen and sinful condition (Romans 3:23).
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. We believe God in His great love for us, lovingly crucified His own Son, Jesus, to forgive humanity from sin and reconcile us to the family of GOD. We believe this gift of salvation is entirely free and cannot be earned by human efforts. Jesus’ death was the only way we could be forgiven, and it is our faith in Christ alone that gives us access to God’s beautiful gift of eternal salvation.
Jesus said, “I have come to give you life more abundantly.” God’s plan for humanity is LIFE and life more abundantly. We believe that God wants to heal and transform us to live healthy and blessed lives to help others more effectively. We believe God is good. He is for us – not against us. He does not use tragedy, illness, or acts of nature to teach us. We believe that God through Christ has made us righteous and free from sin. We believe that this good news is too good to keep to ourselves! God has commanded us and works with us to share the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the earth.
