WHAT WE

BELIEVE

and live

Jesus


We believe in the virgin birth and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and died for our sins. His life was the perfect sacrifice for the atonemennt of our sins. ➡︎ John 1:1 ➡︎ Acts 2:3-24




God's Word


We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It is divinely inspired, infallible, and fully authorative. It is the final source for how to live life and what to believe. ➡︎ 2 Timothy 2:16-17 ➡︎ 2 Peter 1:20-21 ➡︎ Psalm 119:105 ➡︎ Psalm 9:7-11




The Trinity


We believe in one eternal God, existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. ➡︎ Genesis 1:26 ➡︎ Matthew 28:19 ➡︎ 2 Corinthians 13:14




Forgiveness


We believe that we have all sinned and are in need of forgiveness. This forgiveness became available to us through the blood that Jesus shed for us. ➡︎ Genesis 2:15-17, 33:1-24 ➡︎ Romans 3:23




Repentance


We believe that to receive forgiveness and to be "born again," we must repent, confess our sins to God, believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and, in doing so, we receive eternal life. ➡︎ 2 Peter 3:9 ➡︎ 1 John 1:9 ➡︎ Romans 7:7




Jesus' Return


We believe that we are called to be Jesus' hands and feet here on earth and that He is coming back for His church. ➡︎ Acts 1:9-1 ➡︎ Thessalonians 4:16-17




Water Baptism


We believe that water baptism is an outward symbolic sign and testimony that demonstrates that Jesus died for our sins and was raised by the power of the Holy Spirit. In baptism, we are identifying wiht His death and resurrection. ➡︎ Matthew 29:19 ➡︎ Acts 8:35-37 ➡︎ Romans 6:3-9 ➡︎ Colossians 2:11-12 ➡︎ 1 Peter 3:20-21




Gifts of the Holy Spirit


We believe that to walk in the power of God, we must receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He is our helper and enables us to use our gifts, which include speaking in tongues. ➡︎ Galatians 5:16-25 ➡︎ Hebrews 6:1 ➡︎ Acts 1:8, 2:4, 10:44-48




We Will Rise Again


We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. ➡︎ Revelation 20:11-15




Death Was Defeated


We believe Jesus rose from the dead, declaring victory over death and hell. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father. ➡︎ Ephesians 1:20 ➡︎ Philippians 2:6-11 ➡︎ Hebrews 1:2-3




Healing


We believe that healing is provided by Christ's redemptive work on the cross. ➡︎ Mark 16:15-20 ➡︎ 1 Peter 2:24
