What we believe
The Bible is God’s word given to us. It is a true story of love and redemption. It is the final authority in determining
all doctrinal truths. Written by human authors, inspired by God, the Bible is infallible and inerrant. Because it is
inspired by God, it is the ultimate source of truth and is relevant to our every day life
2 Timothy 3:16-17 | 2 Peter 1:20-21 | Proverbs 30:5 | Romans 16:25-26
One True God
God has existed since the beginning of time known as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Colossians 2:2-3| Genesis 1:26 | Matthew 3:16-17 | Matthew 28:19 | Deuteronomy 6:4 | Luke 1:35 | 2 Corinthians
God loved people so much that He sent Jesus, His son, to earth to give us a visible picture of God. Jesus Christ is
both completely human and completely God. Born of a virgin, He lived a perfect life and offered Himself as the
perfect sacrifice for the sin of all men by dying at the cross. But He didn’t stay dead! He resurrected—rose up— from
death to demonstrate His power over sin and death. Because of this, we can have a relationship with God and we
can live our lives with destiny and purpose.
John 3:16 | Isaiah 7:14 | Matthew 1:18-23 | Romans 5:8 | Acts 1:11
Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ. Through
repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and salvation.
Acts 2:21, 3:19 | 1 John 1:9
Salvation is God’s gift to us. It comes when we accept Jesus and the sacrifice that He made as a payment for our sin.
Salvation comes to us when we place our life in His hands. We can’t earn it; it is a gift of God’s grace
Romans 10:9-10 | John 14:6 | Acts 16:31 | Ephesians 2:8-9 | Galatians 2:16 | Titus 3:5 | Hebrews 9:22
The Holy Spirit and Baptism of the Holy Spirit
Soon after Jesus rose from the dead, as promised by God the Father, Jesus sent His Holy Spirit to empower the
church and give spiritual gifts. The Holy Spirit assures us of our relationship with God. He guides us into truth,
comforts us, and convicts us of sin when we get off course.
1 Corinthians 2:12 | 1 Corinthians 3:16 | 2 Corinthians 3:17 | John 16:7-13 | John 14:16-17 | Acts 1:8 | Ephesians
1:13, 5:18 | Galatians 5:25 | Acts 1:8; 2:4; 19:1-7
What is means to be a Christian
Obedience and the Christian life is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to
complete the development of Christ’s character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the
Word of God that the Christian is enable to live a godly life.
Romans 12:1-2 | 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18 | Hebrews 2:11
We were created to live forever, not just a few short years on earth. Our forever can be spent in Heaven with God
when we choose to have a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus. Or we can choose to reject Him and be
separated from Him forever. Heaven and Hell are real places in eternal existence.
John 3:16 | 1 John 5:11-13 | John 14:2-3 | 1 John 2:25 | Romans 6:23 | Revelations 20:15
