CORE BELIEFS

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.

 

Jesus

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.

Matthew 1:22-23Isaiah 9:6John 1:1-5John 14:10-30,Hebrews 4:14-15,1 Corinthians 15:3-4Romans 1:3-4Acts 1:9-111 Timothy 6:14-15Titus 2:13

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 in order 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

Man 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 man died spiritually (Romans 5:12-19). Sin separated humankind from God (Ephesians 2:11-18) and left man in a fallen and sinful condition (Romans 3:23).

Salvation

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 make a way for us to become part of His family. We believe this gift of salvation is completely 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.

Romans 10:9-10Romans 6:23Ephesians 2:8-9John 14:6,John 1:12Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26Romans 5:1

Humanity

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 so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order 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.
