Beliefs and Priorities
The Holy Trinity
- The Father – We believe in one living and true God, both holy and loving, eternal, unlimited in power, wisdom, goodness, the Creator and Preserver of all things.
- The Son of God – We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
- The Holy Spirit – He is the Administrator of grace to all mankind. He is ever present, assuring, preserving, guiding, and enabling the believer.
We believe that God’s Word is inspired and infallible. It is fully inerrant in their original manuscripts and superior to all human authority. You don’t fit the Bible in your life, you fit your life in the Bible. God’s Word has never failed man. It is a perfect road map that leads to eternal life with God.
God’s Purpose for Humanity
We believe that the two great commandments which require us to love the Lord our God with all the heart, and our neighbors as ourselves, summarize the divine law as it is revealed in the Scriptures. They are the perfect measure and norm of human duty, both for the ordering and directing of families and nations, and all other social bodies, and for individual acts, by which we are required to acknowledge God as our only Supreme Ruler.
We believe that humanity’s creation in the image of God included ability to choose between right and wrong.
We believe that Christ’s offering of Himself, once and for all, through His sufferings and death on the cross, provides the perfect redemption and atonement for the sins of the whole world.
We believe that although good works cannot save us from our sins or from God’s judgment, they are the fruit of faith and follow after regeneration.
The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the certainty of the personal and imminent return of Christ inspires holy living and zeal for the evangelization of the world.
We believe that the Christian church is the entire body of believers in Jesus Christ, who is the founder and only Head of the church. We believe that the church was/is God’s only plan to save the world and is a powerful gathering of people beyond anything man could construct.
We believe that there is life after death and all are on their way to either heaven or hell.
We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the sacraments of the church commanded by Christ and ordained as a means of grace when received through faith. We believe that water baptism is an outward and visible sign of an inward transformation of the heart and should be administered to all believers.
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a sacrament of our redemption by Christ’s death and our hope in His victorious return, as well as a sign of the love that Christians have for each other.
