Statement of Beliefs

About God
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return to earth again to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13)

About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)

About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth and the only authority for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error. As God’s “living and active” Word, it has the power to transform our lives to be more like Christ as we study it and put it into practice. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Hebrews 4:12; Matthew 7:24-27; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6, Proverbs 30:5)

About Humanity
People are made in the image of God, the supreme objects of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God, who is the one and only source of life, and therefore causes many problems in life and without salvation will result in death, an eternal separation from God. (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23, 6:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2)

About Salvation
Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection has made our salvation possible.  Because He was sinless, he died to pay the penalty of death for our sins.  His resurrection shows us that Christ has the power over death by forgiving our sins and giving us new life.  Salvation is God’s free gift of grace to us.  Because we have all sinned, we cannot ever earn salvation.  However, this gift must be accepted.  Salvation can only come by trusting in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and committing our life to following His ways.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.  The fruit of salvation starts to become evident in our life as the Holy Spirit transforms our character, attitudes and behaviors and we grow in our relationship with Jesus through our study, practice, prayer, worship and service (Romans 6:1-14, 23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 3:16; Titus 3:5; Romans 8; Romans 12:1-2; Galatians 5:22-25)

About Eternity
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 2 Corinthians 2:7-9)
