WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in one Savior the God-Man, Jesus Christ who is fully God and fully man existing as one person. He lived a sinless life, was the incarnate pre-existent Word of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, the exact representation of God, killed for man’s transgression as the substitutionary atonement, buried, resurrected, ascended to the right hand of God and will return to judge the living and the dead.
We believe the Holy Spirit is God. The Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, convict men of their sins, regenerate the sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
MAN & THE FALL
We believe the shed blood of Jesus and His resurrection provide the only means for forgiveness, justification and salvation and thereby every believer is sealed and lives in continual regeneration of the Holy Spirit.
We believe the Lord’s Supper (Communion) is to be observed by the Church as an expression of thanksgiving and a remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.
What We Believe4christmission2017-03-20T14:41:17+00:00
We believe the Old and New Testament is the inspired Word of God without error in its original manuscripts, the divine and final authority for all Christian life, and the full and complete revelation of God’s plan for salvation.
We believe in one God, maker and ruler of all things who eternally existed as three distinct equal Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit are still active and available for believers today for the work of ministry and for the sake of the world to know and validate that Jesus Christ is both Lord and Savior.
We believe Adam and Eve were created in the image of God as male and female to eternally enjoy and live in fellowship with one another and their Maker but fell into sin and thereby live in rebellion and are totally lost and unable to save themselves.
We believe salvation is an act of God given to those whom God calls by His grace to respond in faith to His salvific work on the Cross-providing atonement and full forgiveness.
We believe water baptism is a physical expression and celebration of a believer’s faith in the burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ but it is not a means to salvation.
We believe the Church is composed of all regenerated believers who are sealed by the Holy Spirit, united by the body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head and Bridegroom.
We believe our Lord Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return with his holy angels to judge the living and the dead and will restore His Kingdom unto Himself. At this time there will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead-for the believer to eternal blessedness with God-for the unbeliever eternal separation and condemnation.
