WE BELIEVE God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons, the Trinity—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26-27; 3:22 | Exodus 8:10 | Psalms 90:2 | Jeremiah 10:10 | Matthew 28:19 | Romans 1:20 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 | 1 Peter 1:2
about Jesus Christ
WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father, and the Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 9:6 | Mathew 1:22-23 | John 1:1-5; 14:10-30 | Acts 1:9-11 | Romans 1:3-4 | 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 | Philippians 2:5-11 | Hebrews 4:14-15 | 1 Timothy 6:14-15 | Titus 2:13
about the Holy Spirit
WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. The Holy Spirit allows Christians to live a godly and obedient life by indwelling every Christian from the moment of salvation. We also believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential.
Ephesians 1:13 | Acts 1:8
about the Bible
WE BELIEVE 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 and it is the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
Psalm 12:6, 119:105, 160 | Proverbs 30:5 | 2 Timothy 1:13, 3:16 | 2 Peter 1:20-21
about the resurrection
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation.
WE BELIEVE humanity 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.
Matthew 25:31-46 | John 2:25; 3:16; 5:11-13 | Romans 6:23 | 1 John 5:11-12 | Revelation 20:15
WE BELIEVE humans are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. They are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although humanity has tremendous potential for good, we are all marred by a nature of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This state of sin separates us from God.
Genesis 1:27 | Psalm 8:3-6 | Isaiah 53:6a; 59:1-2 | Romans 3:23
about the family
WE BELIEVE God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a lifetime covenant. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Jesus Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race.
Genesis 1:26-28; 2:15-25; 3:1-20 | Exodus 20:12 | Deuteronomy 6:4-9 | Joshua 24:15 | Romans 1:18-32 | 1 Corinthians 7:1-16 | Ephesians 5:21-33 | Hebrews 13:4
about human sexuality
WE BELIEVE God has ordained sex to be a gift to be enjoyed exclusively within the bonds of marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, bestiality, lesbianism, bisexuality, incest, fornication, adultery, transgender and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex.
Gen. 2:24 | Gen. 19:5,13 | Gen. 26:8-9 | Lev. 18:1-30 | Rom. 1:26-29 | I Cor. 5:1; 6:9 | I Thess. 4:1-8 | Heb. 13:4.
about spiritual unity
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:15 | Ephesians 4:13
