What we believe

WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of   
God, our only rule for faith and practice. (II Tim.3:16-17; II Peter 1:21)

WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son   
(Jesus) and Holy Spirit; each of whom is equal in being, power and glory.
(Matt. 28:19; John 6:27; Heb. 1:8; Acts 5:3-4)

WE BELIEVE that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life,
“each after its own kind,” by direct act and not by the process of evolution.
(Gen. 1, 2; Col. 1:16-17; John 1:3)

WE BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God’s only begotten Son, His
virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial atoning death for our sins, His bodily
resurrection, and His personal, literal imminent return. (John 1:1-3, 29; 3:16;
Luke 24:36-43; John 14:1-3)

WE BELIEVE in salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
alone and that salvation delivers the believer in Christ from the penalty and
power of sin, and ultimately from the very presence of sin. (Rom. 3:24; Eph.
2:8-9; John 10:27-28; I John 5:13) True faith is always accompanied by
repentance from sin. Repentance is agreeing with God that you are sinful,
confessing your sins to Him, and making a conscious choice to turn from sin
(Luke 13:3,5; 1 Thessalonians 1:9) and pursue Christ (Matthew 11:28-30;
John 17:3) and obedience to Him (1 John 2:3). It isn’t enough to believe
certain facts about Christ. True saving faith always responds in obedience
(Ephesians 2:10).

WE BELIEVE that all who takes Christ as their Lord and Savior are born from
above by action of the Holy Spirit and are eternally secure in Christ. (John
10:28-29; Rom. 8:35-39; Phil.1:6)
