Our Beliefs

 

The Scriptures

 

We believe that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16). We believe that the whole Bible in those original manuscripts is, therefore, without error.

 

The Triune Godhead

 

We believe in the one true and living God, the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things. He is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, and is revealed to us as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

Creation

 

We believe that man was created directly by and in the image of God. We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, by direct act (Genesis 1:1; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17).

 

Man

 

Although man was created in the image of God, he fell into sin and is lost. This is true of all men; and except a man being born again by the Holy Spirit, he cannot see the kingdom of God (Genesis 1:26-27; John 3:3; Romans 3:10, 23).

 

Atonement For Sin

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitute sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are redeemed by His shed blood. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ and in His ascension into heaven (John 1:1-3, 14; 3:1-7; Hebrews 10:4-14; 1 John 2:2).

 

Salvation

 

We believe that salvation is the gift of God’s grace. It cannot be gained or made more secure by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ (John 1:12; Acts 16:30-33; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-9).

 

We believe that excellence honors God and inspires people. We purposefully strive for the highest level of value in all areas of our ministry.

 

We believe that God desires the world to know Him. We purposefully support evangelism and missions programs that meet people’s spiritual, emotional and physical needs with dignity and respect.
