WHAT WE BELIEVE

The Bible, inerrant in the original writings, is the Word of God and the final authority for faith and practice.

God, the Creator of all things, eternally exists in three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The three have distinct personalities, but are in substance one God (John 10:30).

Man, created in the image of God, willfully disobeyed his Creator and thereby sin and death entered the world. Incapable of reconciling a relationship with God, the human race needs a Savior to be delivered from the guilt and penalty of sin.

Jesus Christ, born of a virgin, was God incarnate who lived a sinless life and then voluntarily gave Himself as the sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. After He suffered the penalty for sin on the cross, He was laid in a borrowed tomb. But the grave could not hold Him and on the third day He was bodily raised and after forty days ascended back to heaven.

(Acts 1:3,9)

All who place their trust in Jesus Christ are eternally saved. In no way can man earn a place in heaven. Salvation is by grace through faith, not of works. It is eternal and can never be lost.

Today, Christ is the head of the one church that He is building. All who place their trust in Jesus Christ, are instantly baptized by Christ Himself into this one body. This church is composed of all believers since its inception and will be completed when it is raptured or caught away into heaven. At that time all its members will receive their glorified bodies.
