WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe THE BIBLE is God's word.
The 66 books of the Old Testament and New Testament was written by men who were divinely inspired by God. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 12:6, Psalm 119:150 & 160, Proverbs 30:5)
We believe in ONE GOD who is eternal and the creator of all things.
He is all powerful, all knowing, completely holy and sovereign. He co-exists equally in three persons: GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON & GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.
(Genesis 1:1, 26-27, Genesis 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14)
We believe MAN is created by God and for God and is made in His image.
We believe man's sin has separated him from God and God's purpose for his life.
(Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6, Isaiah 53:6, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1-2)
We believe in JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God, the eternal Word manifested in flesh. We believe that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man.
(Isaiah 7:14, 9:6; John 1:1,2,14,18; 3:16; Luke 1:30-35; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 2:9)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
(John 1:29; Romans 3:25-26; 2 Corinthians 5:14; Hebrews 10:5-19; 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18, 1 John 1:7)
We believe that our Lord arose from the dead, according to the Scriptures, and in the same physical body, though glorified, in which He had lived and died, and that His resurrection body is the pattern of that body which, at the return of Christ, will be given to all resurrected believers.
We believe that our Lord bodily ascended to heaven, was seated at His Father's right hand, assuring us of the perfection of His work of redemption, and that He now as Head over all things to the Church is engaged on behalf of the saved as intercessor and advocate.
(Hebrews 1:3,13; Ephesians 1:22-23; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 2:1)
We believe that we are saved only by grace through faith. Salvation is not something that we earn by doing good works but solely from the goodness of God.
(Ephesians 2:4-10; John 6:44; Titus 2:11-15)
We believe in the Holy Spirit, being the third person of the God-head, convicts men of sin, regenerates, indwells, baptizes, seals and sets believers apart to a holy life; that He keeps and empowers believers day by day. We believe that He is the teacher of the Word of God and our guide for daily life.
(John 16:7-11; 3:6; 14:17; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 12:13; Ephesians 1:13; 4:30; 1 John 2:20-27; 1 Peter 1:1; Romans 8:2,4,9,12,14)
