What We Believe
The Bible We believe the Bible is inspired by God and is the authority on which we base our faith, conduct and doctrine.
The Trinity We believe in one God, the Creator, Jesus the Christ resurrected, the Head of the church, and the Holy Spirit, who guides and empowers, in order for the redemptive work of God to be done in the world.
Salvation We believe that there has never been a time that God has not known us, but because of sin there was a disconnection between humans and God. Here are some of the terms used for salvation; born again, believer, saved. We use the term being reconnected to God. One has to make a conscious decision based on faith to be reconnected to God through Jesus, who died on the cross, and shed His blood for our sins. We believe that our re-connection to God is grounded in what Jesus did for us on the cross, his resurrection from the dead and his promise to return.
Water Baptism Baptism is a sacrament of the church. We believe water baptism is a symbol of the outward expression or testimony of the old person dying and the new person rising, because of the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus the Christ.
Communion Communion is a sacrament of the church. Jesus taught us that we should do it as often as we can as an act of remembering what he did for us on the cross and as a time of re-commitment to our Christian faith.
Discipleship We believe every person who has reconnected to God through Jesus should (1) be in a growing relationship with God by practicing God's Word; (2) be following the teachings of Jesus; (3) be guided by the Holy Spirit; and be transformed by the renewing of their mind.
