About the Bible
We believe the Bible is the authoritative, inspired, and living Word of God and is trustworthy and reliable for telling us what to believe and how to live. the Bible tells about a passionate God on a relentless pursuit to redeem His creation.
2 Peter 1:20-21
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe in one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is creator, eternal, all-knowing, ever-present, and all-powerful. His grace and wrath, mercy and justice, love and jealousy all work together for good.
About Jesus Christ
We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, worked miracles and gave us an example to follow. Fully God and fully man, He died on a cross to pay the penalty for our sin and after three days, rose from the dead to reconcile us to our Creator and to free us to have a new life in Him. Now, He sits at the right hand of the Father.
Hebrews 4:15; 7:26
1 Corinthians 15:3
John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4
Acts 1:11; 1 Timothy 6:13-16
About the Holy Spirit
We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that is given to every follower of Christ to guide, comfort, convict, and adopt us into the family of God. He helps us grow into Christ-likeness by producing the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. Every believer must foster a life of being filled with the Spirit, which is both an initial and an ongoing experience for Christians. He gives us spiritual gifts to empower us to meet the needs of God’s people and a hurting world.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
We believe that human beings were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, humanity is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by one's own effort.
We believe the Father sent Jesus to redeem us through an act of atonement, which culminated with Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection from the dead, that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross solely provides for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation is received when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for one's acknowledged sin. This salvation is not earned and is only given by the grace of God.
About Following Christ
We believe that when every Christian puts their faith in Jesus Christ, it produces the evidence of our salvation. The old way of living for oneself is in the past, and the new way of living for Christ is the present and future. We are forgiven of sin, declared right before God, and given eternal life with Him. The Holy Spirit is given to assure us of our salvation, adopt us into God’s family, and to live in us and empower us for a life of following Jesus. This results in the fruits of the Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
2 Corinthians 5:17
About the Second Coming
We believe that Christians who have died will be reunited with those still alive at the second coming of Jesus Christ. This event will be followed by the millennial reign of Christ, a final judgment, and the appearance of a new heaven and a new earth.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
We believe that Christ's power to heal, evident in the Gospels, is available to all believers today through his atoning sacrifice. The church is to lay hands on the sick, anoint them with oil, and pray faithfully for their recovery.
