We Believe

bite_your_bible We Believe

We Believe that there is one true God (Deut. 6:4). We believe He has revealed Himself as God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit. We believe these three make up what the Bible refers to as “The Godhead” (Col. 2:9). We believe that the full comprehension of this union remains a mystery (Mark 4:11, Romans 16:25, Col. 1:26).

We Believe that Jesus Christ was both fully human and fully God (Phil. 2:5-8, Heb. 4:15). We believe that He was born to a virgin as the scriptures read and that “the Word became flesh” (John 1:14, Matt. 1:18). We believe that He is the expressed “image of the invisible God” (Col. 1:15). We believe that He is worthy to be worshiped and adored not only for what He has done but for who He is- the Son of God and God the Son (Rev.5:8-9).

We Believe that Jesus Christ fulfilled all righteousness and the law, that He was tempted in all manners yet never once yielded to His flesh or to sin (Matt. 3:15, Heb. 4:1)

We Believe that Jesus Christ was crucified on a cross, bearing our sins (Isaiah 53:4-5). We believe that He died and rose again on the third day and now sits at the right hand of God. We believe that there is no other way in which any man can be saved but by this Gospel of Jesus Christ (Phil. 2:9-11, Acts 4:12).

We Believe that salvation is a free gift by God’s Grace (John 3:16, Eph. 2:8). We believe that this salvation is brought about by faith in Jesus Christ and repentance- a true sorrow over sin resulting in a change of mind, heart and conduct (Acts 2:37-38, Matt. 3:8). We believe that this salvation produces the fruits of righteousness and holiness in the life (Romans 6). We believe that works or obedience to God’s Word is a sign of true faith (James 2:14-26).

We Believe that God has sent the Holy Spirit into the World to “convict the world of sin” and to empower true believers to live holy lives bringing glory to God’s name and purposes (John 16:8, Luke 24:49, Isaiah 43:10).

We Believe that Jesus Christ will physically return to earth to gather His saints (Acts 1:9-11, 1 Thess. 4:16,17). We believe that there is an appointed day of judgement and wrath awaiting those who do not repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ (Job 21:30, Romans 2:5).

We Believe that all 66 books of the Holy Bible are the inspired Word of God, true, literal, accurate and reliable. We believe that the Bible is “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Tim. 3:16-17, Psalms 119:11, 2 Pet. 1:20-21).

We Believe that the greatest pursuit in this life is to know God and walk in His ways (John 17:3, Phil 3:10, Col. 1:10). We believe that the most important commission of true believers is to win souls and spread the good news of God’s love. We believe this is best accomplished through personal intimacy with God resulting in true love for people. We believe that true believers are to reflect a humble and holy lifestyle which will win more souls than all the religious talk in the world.(2 Cor. 2:14).
