What We Believe

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word. It is the only written revelation from God to us and our true source for Christian belief and living. It was written by human authors, supernaturally inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is the truth without any error.
2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Psalm 19:7-13; Psalm 119; Matthew 24:35; Matthew 5:18; John 17:17


God is the Creator of the universe and its Ruler. He eternally exists in three distinct and co-equal persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and present everywhere at all times. He is holy, just, and righteous. He is merciful, good, and kind. He is love. He is a Father to all who trust in His Son, Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; Psalm 139:1-12; Isaiah 6:1-7; Psalm 136; I John 4:8, 16; Romans 8:14-16

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is co-equal with The Father and The Spirit. He is the Son of God. He has eternally existed. He was born to a virgin and lived a sinless life. He died on the cross for the sins of the world and was raised three days later to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return to earth to rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Colossians 1:15-20, 2:9; John 1:1-5; Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 1:1-3, 2:18, 4:14,15; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; Revelation 17:14, 19:11-16

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with The Father and The Son. He is present in the world to convince men of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in all Christians from the moment of salvation. He brings power for living and witnessing, spiritual understanding and guidance. He gives spiritual gift(s) to every believer at salvation. We seek to live under His daily control.
John 14:16, 17; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:12; John 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13, 14; Ephesians 5:18; Galatians 5:22-25


Human beings are made in God’s spiritual image. People are the crown of His creation, created to know, love, and be like Him in character. However, sin entered the human race through Adam. Sin corrupts us all and leads us into sinful acts. Sin separates us from God and eternal, abundant life.
Genesis 1:27; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23


Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

We all were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called hell. Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God.
