Our Beliefs

It’s all about Jesus.

THE NATURE OF GOD

We believe that there is one God, eternally present in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16–17; John 1:1–4

THE SINFULNESS OF MAN

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but as a result of sin, we are lost and powerless to save ourselves.

Genesis 1:26; Romans 6:23

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is by faith through grace alone. No amount of good works will produce justification before God. We further believe that the manifestation of faith and grace is a holy life expressed through righteous works.

Ephesians 2:8-10

REDEMPTION THROUGH CHRIST

We believe that the only hope for man is to believe in Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God; fully God and fully man. Mankind is redeemed through faith in Christ’s life, death and resurrection.

Romans 10:9-10,13; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:1-10

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, and through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, believers are empowered for Christian service and gifted for this service. The Holy Spirit also enables believers to live a Christ-like life exhibiting Godly character.

Luke 11:13; Acts 1:8, 2:1–4, 8:17, 10:44–46, 19:6; Galatians 5:22–23; I Corinthians 12

ETERNAL LIFE

We believe that eternal life in heaven is the reward of all who believe and receive Christ as their Lord. According to the Scriptures: “For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”.

John 3:16

THE RETURN OF CHRIST

We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the consummation of the Kingdom of God and the restoration of everything, as He promised long ago through His holy prophets.

Matthew 24:42–44; Acts 1:11, 3:19–21; Revelation 11:15

THE BODY OF CHRIST

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, both universal and local, and is composed of individuals who, through faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe that Christ Jesus is the Head and Lord of the Church. The mission of the Church is worship, local and global evangelism, discipleship, and the nurturing and care of one another..

Matthew 28:18–20; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 2:19–22

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES

We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative source of Christian faith and practice. The Bible is a supreme revelation from God, superior to conscience and reason, though not contrary to reason.

2 Timothy 3:16–17

Our Vision

We are a Christ-centered community that expands the Kingdom of God by making disciples.

WORSHIP

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Matthew 22:37-39

COMMUNITY

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Acts 2:42-47

MISSION

You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 5:13-16
