WHAT WE BELIEVE

OUR CHURCH

We are a non-denominational, multi-generational, multi-ethnic church that believes the Bible is divinely inspired (2 Timothy 3:1617) and is the Word of God. There is only one true and living God who is manifested in three eternal and equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:192 Corinthians 3:1718). We base everything upon the truth of Scripture and devote ourselves to the teaching of sound doctrine.

OUR SAVIOR

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18), virgin-born (Matthew 1:25), sinless (Hebrews 4:15), died on the cross for our sins, was raised bodily from the dead on the third day, is at the right hand of the Father and is coming again (1 Corinthians 15:3,4; John 14:3; Romans 8:34; Revelation 22:20). Jesus is the Son of God, God incarnate, and Lord of all (John 1:1,14Romans 10:9Acts 10:36).

OUR SITUATION

Man is a sinner (Romans 3:23) and is saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:89). Man’s response to God’s grace includes repentance (Acts 17:30), publicly confessing Jesus as Lord (Romans 10:9Matthew 10:3233) and baptism by immersion (Acts 2:38Acts 10:47). Every Christian is a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17) and is indwelt, empowered and gifted by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9) to become like Christ in character and deed.

OUR PURPOSE

Christ is the head and Chief Shepherd of the church (Colossians 1:181 Peter 5:4). The purpose of the church is to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). We understand every believer to be an ambassador (2 Corinthians 5:20) and minister (Ephesians 4:1112) of the gospel to help win our community to Jesus Christ. The Church should continually devote itself to the apostles teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread (communion or Lord’s Supper) and prayer (Acts 2:42Acts 20:7). Our local church recognizes two offices of leadership known as elders (1 Timothy 3:1-7Titus 1:5-7) and deacons (1 Timothy 3:8-13Philippians 1:1).
