our beliefs (also see denominational affiliation)

The bible is inspired by God and declares His design and redemption plan for humanity. It was written by people under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is His perfect will and is thus without error. (1 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV)


Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Matthew 16:16; Mark 2:1-12; John 1:18; 14:9).

He is completely God and completely man (Mark 2:15; John 4:6).

He lived a sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22).

He gave his life as a sacrifice for the sins of humanity (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

Three days after His death He rose from the grave (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4).

He ascended into Heaven (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Hebrews 1:3).

He will return again to restore the world and reign forever as King! (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21-22)


WHY MUST I BE SAVED?

Man chose to be away from God. Though created in His perfect image, man decided to follow his own will instead of God's will. This led to separation from God and essentially death. (Isaiah 59:2)


HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

Only Jesus can save us. No one can be saved by good works or achievements. Only through faith in Christ can we receive God's free gift of salvation. (Isaiah 53:6)

     

    The ABC’s of Salvation:

    A – Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior

    B – Believe in Jesus Christ to save you from your sins that separate you from a loving God

    C – Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of your life

     

    “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10 NLT)
