Faith Doctrines

WHAT WE BELIEVE – FAITH DOCTRINES

  • We believe in the eternal and everlasting God, the Creator of all things, living and dead; who functions in the mystery of the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; Three in One and One in Three.
  • We believe the Bible is the inerrant written Word of God, containing the Old Testament and New Testament books, set forth by humans inspired by the power of the Holy Spirit. We look to these Scriptures as the final authority for truth, doctrine, instruction and correction for godly living.
  • We believe mankind is created in the image of the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to live life in relationship with Them to love, honor and serve Them for eternity.
  • We believe sin entered into the world through man’s disobedience to God, and that this sin separated all mankind from God eternally.
  • We believe God sent the Son, Jesus, miraculously born of a virgin, to earth as the ultimate expression of His love for mankind, to be the blood sacrifice for the sin of mankind, suffering torture and death, as payment for mankind’s sins.
  • We believe that in life, Jesus was fully God and fully man, living a sinless existence, though tempted in every way as mankind is. We believe Jesus learned obedience through the things which He suffered, and He laid down His life to the point of death on a cross.
  • We believe God’s power raised Jesus from the grave to ascend into heaven where He has taken His rightful place on His throne at the right hand of the Father for eternity, once and for all conquering Satan, sin, and death.
  • We believe we are declared guiltless, and that by accepting into our lives personally Jesus’ work on the cross and His resurrection, we are saved and become born again spiritually, becoming adopted sons and daughters into the family of God by the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe the Holy Spirit is the active Agent of God indwelling our lives. He leads and guides His sons and daughters in all Truth, and does the work of transforming us as we live our lives in obedience to Him by His grace, the power to do His will.
  • We believe Jesus is Savior, Lord and King and that He will return again to the earth to judge the living and the dead. We believe those who have rejected Jesus and his offer of eternal salvation will condemn themselves to hell for eternity, and those who have accepted Jesus’ offer of eternal salvation will spend eternity with Him as co-heirs of His Kingdom.
