Statement of Faith

 

 

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God.
  • We believe in the trinity, the Godhead; one eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, personal God existing in three forms: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that God sent His one and only Son to die on the cross to bring salvation.
  • “for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever would believe in Him would not die, but inherit eternal life.”  JOHN 3:16(NIV)
  • God’s Word calls us to accept His salvation, and to do so through believing obedience…
  • Though he was God's Son, he learned trusting-obedience by what he suffered, just as we do. Then, having arrived at the full stature of his maturity and having been announced by God as high priest in the order of Melchizedek, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who believingly obey him.                                Hebrews 5:8-10(MSG)
  • A call to obediently believe that Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God.
  • “they replied, believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved- you and your entire household.”
  •                                                                                                                                                 ACTS 16:31
  • A call to obediently confess Jesus Christ as Lord, and Savior.
  • “If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God.”
  •                                                                                                                                             I JOHN 4:15
  • A call to obediently repent of sin.
  • “now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.”
  •                                                                                                                                     ACTS 3:19 (NLT)
  • A call to obediently be baptized by immersion.
  • “What are you waiting for? Get up and be baptized. Have your sins washed away by calling on the name of the Lord.”                                                                                                                              ACTS 22:16
  • “who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ “                                                                                         PETER 3:20-21
  • A call to obediently live our lives for Him.
  • “Whatever you do, work at it with all of your heart, as working for the Lord, and not for men”
  •                                                                                                                                             Colossians 3:23
  • We believe that God wants no one to perish, and it is our/my personal duty to reach out to as many people as possible with the salvation message of the Gospel.
  • “for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever would believe in Him would not die, but inherit eternal life.”  JOHN 3:16(NIV)
  • Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
