We Believe In . . .

The Bible.  The Bible is God’s Holy Word; it is the inspired, infallible authority without error; it was written by human authors under the guidance of the Holy Spirit; the Word of God is His love letter to us, His People.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2Psalm 119:11, 89, 105Isaiah 40:8Matthew 22:29John 5:39, 16:13-15, 17:17Romans 15:42 Timothy 3:15-17Hebrews 1:1-24:121 Peter 1:252 Peter 3:16

The TrinityWe believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4Isaiah 61:1Matthew 28:19 | Mark 1:9-11 | Luke 1:35 | John 5:21-23, 14:10, 16 | Romans 8:9-11 | 1 Corinthians 8:6 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 | Hebrews 1:8-10 | James 2:19

God the FatherAll-powerful, holy, all-knowing, ever-present, and beyond all that we think He is!
Exodus 3:14 | Numbers 23:19 | Leviticus 11:44-45, 19:2 | Psalm 11:4-6 | Malachi 3:6 | John 3:16, 4:24, 5:26, 14:1 | Acts 17:28 | Romans 3:3-4

God the Son.  Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. It is only through Jesus Christ that we have a FULL LIFE. He became man, so that we may know Him. He willingly gave Himself up for us as a sacrifice and defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life, and live life to the fullest.
Isaiah 7:14, 53 | Matthew 1:18-23, 3:17, 8:29, 14:33, 16:16, 28:5-6 | Luke 22:70, 24:46-47 | John 1:1, 14, 10:30, 11:25-27, 17:1-5 | Acts 1:9, 2:22-24, 7:55-56 | Romans 1:3-4, 3:23-26, 8:1-3, 10:4 | 1 Corinthians 8:6 | 2 Corinthians 5:19-21 | Galatians 4:4-5 | Philippians 2:5-11 | Colossians 1:15, 2:9 | 1 Timothy 2:5-6, 3:16

God the Holy Spirit.  He is ever-present in the lives of the followers of Christ and assures us of our relationship with Christ. He convicts us of our sin. He instructs and guides God’s children into all truth and exalts Christ. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
Psalm 51:11, 139:7 |
 Isaiah 61:1-3 | Joel 2:28-32 | Mark 1:10 | Luke 1:35, 4:1, 11:13, 12:12 | John 15:26, 16:7-14 | Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 13:2 | Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27 | 1 Corinthians 3:16 | Ephesians 1:13-14 | 2 Peter 1:2 | Revelation 22:17

Man and Woman.  Man and Woman are made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man/Woman was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, we cannot attain a right relationship with God through our own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
Genesis 1:26-30, 2:7, 18-22, 3 | Psalms 8:3-6, 32:1-5, 51:5 | Isaiah 6:5 | Jeremiah 17:5 | Acts 17:26-31 | Romans 1:19-32, 3:10-18, 23, 5:6, 6:6, 7:14-25 | 1 Corinthians 1:21-31, 15:19, 21-22 | Ephesians 2 | Colossians 1:21-22, 3:9-11

Salvation.  We are sinners in need of a Savior. Our Salvation can only be found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts. We are not saved through what we do, but only by God’s amazing grace. The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as payment for their sin.
Isaiah 1:18, 53:5-6, 55:7 | Matthew 1:21, 27:22-66, 28:1-6 | Luke 1:68-69, 2:28-32 | John 1:12, 3:16, 36, 5:24 | Acts 2:21, 4:12, 16:30-31 | Romans 1:16-18, 3:23-25, 5:8-10, 6 | 1 Corinthians 1:18 | 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 | Galatians 2:20, 3:13 | Ephesians 2:8-10 | Philippians 2:12-13 | Hebrews 9:24-28 | Revelation 3:20

The Church.  The Church is God’s chosen instrument to work in the world. The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Jesus Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
Matthew 16:18-19, 18:15-20 | Acts 2:41-47, 5:11-14, 13:1-3, 14:23, 16:5, 20:28 | 1 Corinthians 7:17, 9:13-14, 12 | Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22, 3:10-12, 5:22-32 | Colossians 1:18, 3:15 | 1 Timothy 4:14 | 1 Peter 5:1-4 | Revelation 21:2-3
