What We Believe
Printable Version -->
I BELIEVE there is one God, eternally existing, creator of all things. “The Lord our God is one Lord” (Deuteronomy 6:4)
“I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God” (Isaiah 44:6)
I BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the incarnate Son of God, was born of a virgin, is wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on a cross in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.
I BELIEVE that God’s Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide who lives in every believer.
I BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God.
I BELIEVE that man is a creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and in need of salvation.
I BELIEVE in the need for repentance which is a recognition of sin for what it is, followed by heartfelt sorrow, culminating in a change of behavior.
I BELIEVE in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and that only by God's grace through faith alone are we saved.
I BELIEVE that my sins are forgiven when I put my faith and trust in Jesus Christ. “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1) “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1John 1:9)
One Way to God
I BELIEVE that faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to God. “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
Jesus Christ's Return
I BELIEVE that Jesus Christ will return to earth in great power and glory.
I BELIEVE that those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Jesus Christ spend eternity in Heaven.
I BELIEVE that those persons who die in their sins without Jesus Christ spend eternity in Hell.
The Ten Commandments
I BELIEVE the Ten Commandments are the law used to identify our sin against God and in turn point us to Jesus Christ who is the only remedy for sin.
The Great Commission
I BELIEVE that Jesus called all His followers to act and share the Good News of salvation throughout the world.
I BELIEVE that human life begins at the moment of conception and that God “knit me together in my mother's womb”
I BELIEVE that abortion is the sacrifice of a human life which God strictly prohibited. “Any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to Molek is to be put to death.” (Leviticus 20:2)
I BELIEVE that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)
I BELIEVE that sex outside of marriage is an offense to God. “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4)
I BELIEVE “in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day.” (Exodus 20:11)
