What We Believe
We Hold to These Biblical Truths
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
The Holy Ghost moved men to speak/write. (2 Pet. 1:21, Acts 1:16)
The Bible must be rightly divided. (2 Tim. 2:15)
The Bible contains The Law of Moses, prophesies, psalms (songs of praise), history, and doctrine.
The Trinity (three in one): God is one God expressed in three separate persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:19, Luke 3:21-22, Genesis 1:1-2, John 1:1-3)
God is everlasting (Ps. 90:2)
God is omniscient (all-knowing). (1 John 3:20)
God is omnipotent (all-powerful). (Luke 1:37)God is omnipresent (everywhere). (Prov. 15:3)
God the Son
Jesus was God in the flesh. He was God and He was man. He was in existence before the world was created.
Jesus is God and man. (Phil. 2:6-7)
Jesus was with the Father before the world was created. (John 17:5)
Jesus and the Father are one. (John 10:30)
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit lives in Christians. (1 Cor. 3:16)
The Holy Spirit convicts of sin. (John 16:7-8)
The Holy Spirit guides into truth. (John 16:13)
The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus. (John 16:14)
The Holy Spirit seals. (Eph. 4:30)
Salvation means to be delivered from our sins. When we receive salvation, our sins are forgiven. Salvation makes u a child of God. We are no longer going to hell. We are going to heaven to be with God. Salvation changes our lives here on earth and gives us a reason for living.
Sin is not doing what God wants us to do...disobedience to God. Sin separates us from God.
We are all sinners. (Rom. 3:10-12)
All men everywhere need to be saved. (John 3:3)
Without salvation, we will go to hell. (Rev. 20:15)
God furnished a payment for our sins when He sent Jesus to die on the cross. On the cross Jesus, once and for all, made a full and complete payment for all of our sins.
Jesus Christ is the payment for our sins. (I Pet. 1:18-19)
Christ was offered to bear our sins. (Heb. 9:28)
Christ suffered once. (1 Pet. 3:18)
Since Jesus paid for all our sins on the cross, and since we are sinners and cannot save ourselves, salvation is offered to us as a free gift. How does a person get a gift? Simply by receiving it. You do no work for a gift and you do not earn a gift. We receive the gift of eternal life simply by accepting it. Since we cannot see eternal life or hold it in our hands, we must accept it by faith, trusting God to do what He said He would do in the Bible.
Eternal life is a gift of God. (Rom. 6:23)
We are saved through faith. (Eph. 2:8-9)
We receive everlasting life by believing. (John 6:47)
Salvation comes by believing from the heart. (Rom. 10:9)
