Our Beliefs

About the Bible
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.) 

About God
We believe there is only one God.  (Duet. 6:4, Isa 44:6)  He is a spirit and is greater than the universe he created.  (Jn. 4:24, I Tim. 1:17, I Kings 8:27)  The price of sin is shed blood.  (Rom. 6:20, Heb. 9:22) A spirit does not have blood.  (Lk. 24:39)
So when the fullness of time had come God made a body for himself to dwell in and took that body to a cross to be a sacrifice for the sins of mankind.  (Gal. 4:4, Lk. 1:35, Heb. 10:5, II Cor. 5:19, Jn. 14:10) After three days and three nights he raised that body to life again. We will see him visibly in that body on the one throne that is in heaven. 
(Rev. 4:2)

About Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)

About the Gospel
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (resurrection). (See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)

About Christian Living
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.)

About the Future
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (See I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15.)
