Our Beliefs

 

GOD:

We believe in one God who reveals himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

JESUS:

We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man at the same time, who became one of us to bring about our salvation.

HOLY SPIRIT:

We believe in the Holy Spirit who is active in the world, helping us understand the bible, to know what is right and wrong and to transform our character.

SCRIPTURE:

We believe that the bible is the supernaturally inspired Word of God, giving us all we need to know to be saved and live a life pleasing to God.

SIN:

We believe that we are sinner by both nature and behavior and need both God’s forgiveness and cleansing. This is made possible through the work of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.

NEW LIFE IN CHRIST:

We believe Jesus died on the cross and rose again, and that by trusting in His shed blood for our sins, we can be forgiven and be restored to a right relationship to God.

We believe that each person must repent and turn away from their sin. Changes in behavior evidence a change of heart.

We believe that God has enabled everyone to turn to Him from sin, but has not forced us to do so. He gives us the liberty to accept or reject His will throughout our lifetime.

HOLY LIVING:

We believe that by faith, believers can be made holy.

THE CHURCH:

We believe that the church is the active body of Christ in the world today. It is called together by the Holy Spirit, through the Word of God, for the purpose of God’s plan for the world until Christ returns.

BAPTISM:

Every true Christian is to undergo water baptism as an outward sign of what Christ has done inside them.

COMMUNION:

We Believe Christians are to partake in the Lord’s Supper on a regular basis in remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice.

DIVINE HEALING:

We believe in the biblical teaching of divine healing, and urge our people to seek or to offer the prayer of faith for the healing of the sick. We also believe that God heals through the means of medical science as well.

SECOND COMING OF CHRIST:

We believe that Christ is coming again and everyone who has repented of their sin will be taken up in the air to meet the Lord and to live with Him forever.
