What We Believe

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We have pretty much the same beliefs as all Biblically conservative followers of Christ. If it is found in the Bible we believe it. But we understand how important it is for you to know exactly what we believe. Below, you will find two versions: short and sweet and long and scholarly. 

Short & Sweet

There is only one living and true God who reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Father is an infinite, eternal, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love.

Jesus is the son of God who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for our redemption, was bodily resurrected, ascended to heaven where He is the only way for us to find forgiveness.

The Holy Spirit is the eternal Spirit of God who shows us right from wrong and guides and empowers all believers.

The Bible contains the accurate record of God's Words to us and we should follow its wisdom.

You are of value because you were created in the image of God with a free will.

Salvation is the forgiveness of all sin and redemption received by man that comes by believing in Jesus.

You can, with the help of God's Spirit follow God, live well, and do right.

You can never lose your salvation.

The real church is the living spiritual body of Christ on earth made up of every person that is a Christian.

Heaven and hell are real.

Jesus is coming back one day to redeem all who believe and the world.

Long & Scholarly

God
There is only one living and true God who reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit each with distinct personal attributes but without division of nature, essence, or being.

(Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalms 90:2; Psalms 102:27; John 3:16 and 4:24; 1 Timothy 1:17; Titus 1:3)

Salvation
Salvation is the forgiveness of all sin and redemption received by man through repentance from sin, faith in Jesus Christ and confession of Jesus as Lord.

(John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 2:38; Ephesians 2:8-9)

Security
All true believers endure to the end and will never fall away from the miraculous state of grace and redemption provided by God through Jesus though sin might impair their relationship with God and bring temporal judgement upon them. (Romans 5: 1-8, 8:31-39; 1 Corinthians 3:12-15; 2 Corinthians 1:22, 5:17; Ephesians 2:8-9, 4:30; 1 Peter 1:5)

Heaven/Hell
Heaven and hell are literal and that all those who place their faith, hope and trust in Jesus Christ will spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord, while those who reject Jesus’ free gift of salvation will spend eternity separated from the Lord. (Psalm 9:17; Matthew 5:3, 5:22, 18:9 and 25:31-34; Mark 9:42-49; Luke 12:5; John 3:18; Hebrews 12:23; 1 Peter 1:4; Revelation 14:10-11 and 20:11-15)
