WHAT WE BELIEVE

Christianity is more about a relationship than religious practices. Instead of adhering to a list of “do’s and don’ts,” the goal of a Christian is to cultivate a close walk with God. That relationship is made possible because of the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

  • We believe that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, was resurrected, and thereby offers salvation to all who will receive Him in faith.


  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and that the teachings within it are the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.


  • We believe in one God that exists in three persons - the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit.


  • We believe that mankind was created specifically to have a relationship with God, but sin separates all men from God.


  • We believe that Jesus Christ walked this earth, fully God, and yet fully man, and died on the cross. We believe that after His death, Christ was buried, He rose again.


  • We proclaim that Jesus’ death on the cross was sufficient to completely pay the sin debt owed by all men and this is what restores the broken relationship between God and mankind.


  • We believe that in order to be saved and be granted entrance into heaven after death, one must place one’s faith entirely in the finished work of Christ on the cross. If we believe that Christ died in our place and paid the price of our own sins, and rose again, then we are saved. There is nothing that anyone can do to earn salvation. We cannot be “good enough” to please God on our own, because we are all sinners.


  • We believe that salvation is freedom from the old sin nature and freedom to pursue a right relationship with God.


  • We believe that long as believers live on this earth in their sinful bodies, we will engage in a constant struggle with sin. However, we, as Christians can have victory in the struggle with sin by studying and applying God’s Word in our lives and being controlled by the Holy Spirit—that is, submitting to the Spirit’s leading in everyday circumstances.

Corintheans 15: 1-4


2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

2 Timothy 3:16

16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

John 1 1:5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Romans 3:23

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Romans 6:23

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Isaiah 53:6

 6  We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
     each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.
