Written Statement of What We Believe

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22     Psalm 90:2     Matthew 28:19     1 Peter 1:2     2 Corinthians 13:14
Mankind is made in the image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although we have tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separated us from God.
Genesis 1:27     Psalm 8:3-6     Isaiah 53:6a; 59:1-2     Romans 3:23
Mankind was created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16     1 John 2:25; 5:11-13     Romans 6:23     Revelation 20:15
Salvation is a gift from God to people. 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 we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 5:1; 6:23     Ephesians 2:8-9     John 1:12; 14:6     Titus 3:5     Galatians 3:26
Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of their salvation. He provided the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His guidance daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17     John 14:16-17; 16:7-13     Acts 1:8     1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16     Ephesians 1:13; 5:18     Galatians 5:25
The bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16     2 Peter 1:20-21     Psalm 119:105; 12:6     Proverbs 30:5
