We believe that the Holy Bible was supernaturally composed by the cooperation of God and man. It’s our final authority for all matters of faith and practice. We believe in a literal, historical, and grammatical reading of the text and place a high value on Scripture based teaching for all ages.
The Trinue God
We believe that there is one true and living God who is composed of a unity of three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are equal in eternality, essence, and mission – the redemption of the world for their glory.
Jesus the Messiah
We believe that the Lord Jesus is fully God and fully man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of Mary. Jesus was raised by a devout Jewish couple and lived a perfectly righteous life in body and soul as required by the Law of God. After three years of formal ministry, He was crucified and buried according in fulfillment of the Scriptures. After three days, He rose as the first fruits from the dead as the Scriptures said He would.
His death, burial, and resurrection are the means by which sinful man can be reconciled to their Creator. Christ returned to heaven and is ministering on behalf of the redeemed and preparing a place for those who receive His salvation. We believe He can return at any time to conquer all powers, and setup a physical kingdom in Jerusalem.
Since all people are sinners by nature and choice, we believe that salvation is received by faith in the finished work of Jesus the Messiah. The Scriptures teach that we are saved by the grace of God, in accordance with the powerful work of Jesus – it is not of our work, otherwise we would boast. Since the Scriptures teach salvation is a work of God, once a person has been justified, they are held secure by God until the day of their redemption. Those who believe in Christ are called to be obedient teachings of Jesus.
We believe that the church is a gathering of those who have redeemed by the powerful working of God. It is not a building, it is a people who share Christ in common. There is one global church that consists of all of the redeemed, but the Scriptures also call for local gatherings of saints who can grow, work, worship, and serve together until the return of Christ.
