What We Believe

Beliefs

Man is made in the image of God. Man was created to have and enjoy fellowship with God, but sin and disobedience against Him separated us from God. Man is not able to gain or earn a right relationship with God through his own efforts.


(Genesis 1:27; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Colossians 1:21; Isaiah 59:1-2)


Church

The church is not a building. The church utilizes buildings to better accommodate its worship gatherings and opportunities for fellowship. The church is a local community of believers that intentionally gathers together to support and encourage each other in the faith. The purpose of the church is to share and reflect the love and message of Jesus Christ with the world.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and Son as God. From the moment of salvation, He dwells inside every believer. The Holy Spirit directs, guides, leads, offers freedom, warns, challenges, convicts, and is the power source for Christians.

The Son

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is completely human and completely God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world. By dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days, demonstrating His power over sin, death, and the grave.
