what we believe

SALVATION

We believe the Bible teaches that salvation is received only by God's grace through Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. 

(I Corinthians 15:3-4)

LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS

Love is the number one thing God asks us to do. First, that we love Him, next that we love others.

We believe the love we have for others symbolizes the love Jesus had for us. It shows our discipleship, proves our love for God, and indicates our authenticity as a New Testament church.

(Matthew. 22:35-40; John 13:34-35; John 15:12; 1 John 4: 7-21; 1 John 5 1-3;

Rev. 2:4-5)

 

THE BIBLE IS TRUTH

The Bible in its entirety is without error. It is inspired by God Himself as our guide of faith and practice.

(Psalms 119:160; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)

 

THE TRINITY

God created man in his own image. Just as man is made up of three parts (mind, body, and spirit), so too is our creator (Father, Son, and Spirit). All three are equally one God. (Genesis 1:26; Matthew. 28:19;

John 10:30)

 

ETERNAL SECURITY

Once someone has truly accepted Christ as their personal Savior, that Salvation cannot be lost. Jesus Christ's salvation is eternal. Salvation is by God's grace alone and not by any work of man.

(John 10:27-30)

 

THE CHURCH

Jesus Christ established His church during His ministry on earth and it is always a local, visible assembly of scripturally baptized believers carrying out the Great Commission: evangelizing, baptizing, and teaching.

(Matthew 4: 18-22; Mathew 16:18; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 1:14-20)

The most important question anyone can ask throughout the course of their life is "What happens when I die?"  

While the world offers many answers to this question, the Bible clearly outlines only one. 

The most vivid picture of the Gospel is given to us in I Corinthians 15:3-4.  

"I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the scriptures said."

Romans 10:9-10 tells us "If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved." 

Salvation occurs at the moment of belief in Jesus Christ.  This is not a head knowledge, but a belief of the heart.  Many people know who Jesus is, but far fewer have a relationship with him. Love is a two way road.  God offers his love to everyone, but we must first receive that love in order to experience it. 

You can know this love today, right where you are.  All it takes is a prayer from the heart trusting in Christ as the one who paid the price for your sins, believing that He is God.

We would like to know more about your decision to trust Christ as your Savior. Please contact our staff and let us know if you have made this decision. We want to congratulate you on your new journey with Christ and help you in any way we can.
