Doctrine  

God

We believe there is one God, the creator of Heaven and Earth. He eternally exists in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three, also called the Trinity, are equal in essence and distinct in function. (Matt. 3:16-17John 1:1-4John 5:18Romans 8:31-372 Cor. 13:14Deut. 6:4)

Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the promised Messiah that was promised in the Law, who is the Eternal Son of God, and virgin born Son of Man. As a result of this, Jesus was the only one suitable to sacrifice his life for sinful man. Thereby, Jesus was able to satisfy God’s righteous judgment against sin. In Jesus, God is revealed and Man is redeemed. We believe in his bodily resurrection, that he physically ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father awaiting his imminent return. (1Corinthians 15:3-4Colossians 1:15-22Isaiah 7:14John 1:9-16John 5:19-24Romans 5:1-28Philippians 2: 6-11Mark 10:45John 1:29)

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He executes the will of God through humanity. He convicts, regenerates, guides, fills, teaches, gives spiritual gifts, baptizes, and seals to all believers that are in the body of Christ. The Holy Spirit also empowers believers to bear fruit as they yield their lives completely to Him. (Romans 8:13-16Romans 8:9;11Romans 8:26-27John 14:16John 14:26John 16:7-9John 16:13-14)

Man

We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God. Man was created to have an ongoing continuous fellowship with God. However, after Adam and Eve failed, sin entered into all of humanity, leaving us estranged from God. This eternal death sentence left man doomed to death and eternal separation from his Creator. Without faith in Christ, man is destined to suffer the wrath of God, and is without hope in this world. (Romans ch. 5, Genesis 1: 26-27Genesis 2:7Genesis 2: 15-19Romans 3: 9-19Romans 3:23)

Salvation

We believe that salvation is a free gift from God. Salvation is given by grace alone, through faith alone, because of Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. Although it is freely available to all, it is only experienced through faith, apart from works, in the finish work of Christ’s perfect sacrifice in place of our sins. Believers are then joined to the body of Christ and saved from the wrath of God. (Genesis 3:15Ephesians 1:7-12John 3:16-18Romans 10: 9-101 John 5:11John 14:6John 3:14-19John 3:362Peter 3:9Romans 5:8 John 5:24)

The Church

We believe that the church, the Bride of Christ is not a building, but a gathering of believers who worship God exclusively. We believe that believers are considered one in Christ, and are to be joined to the local church for discipleship, accountability, and are also governed by Jesus Christ through a body of Pastors / Elders. (Matthew 16:18Acts 2:42-471Corinthians 12:12-14Ephesians 4:4Colossians 1:18Colossians 1:24Ephesians 1: 22-23Ephesians 5:27)
