WHAT WE BELIEVE

relationship not religion


ONE TRUE GOD
There is one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists as one substance in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 
Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 14:10, 16; James 2:19

THE BIBLE
The Bible is inspired by God. It is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25

HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit assures us of our relationship with Christ, guides us into all truth, convicts people of their sin, comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
Genesis 1:2; Joel 2:28; Luke 4:1; 11:13; John 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Ephesians 1:13-14

SIN & SALVATION
All humanity, Christ excluded, is sinful by birth and action, which separates us from God. Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin. Only through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus and repentance from sin can your relationship with God be restored. Salvation is a gift from God; it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
John 3:16-18; Romans 3:23-25, 5:8-10; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 2; Philippians 2:12-13; 1 Peter 3:18; Hebrews 9:24-28

THE CHURCH
The Church is a local community of baptized believers, committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3
 

This is just a brief summary. We strongly encourage studying the Bible, listening to the Holy Spirit, and learning from your leaders.
