what we believe

Scripture

We believe the Bible (OT and NT) is the only inspired, the only infallible, the only inerrant, and the only authoritative Word of God in all of creation.

(II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21)

Trinity

We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

(Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)

Jesus Christ

We believe in His Deity and His humanity. (Matthew 16:16, 17 and John 1:1, Hebrews 2:18 and 4:15)

We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, and His miracles. (Luke 1:26-38, Hebrews 4:15, Luke 4:18)

We believe in His death that reconciled us to God. (Romans 5:10)

We believe in His unique ability to regenerate man. (give true life, re-birth from above) (John 3:5, 6, 16, 17, Titus 3:5, I Peter 1:23)

We believe in His bodily resurrection. (John 20:27, 28, Romans 4:24, 6:4, I Corinthians 15:1-8)

We believe in His ascension to the right hand of the Father. (Ephesians 1:20)

We believe in His return to earth in power and glory. (Matthew 24:29-31, Revelation 19:11-19)

New Creation in Jesus Christ

We believe it is through the shedding of Christ’s blood that all of the believer’s sins are forgiven. (Romans 5:9)

We believe it is through Christ’s bodily death that the believer’s former Adamic spirit (sinful nature) was crucified. (Romans 6:6)

We believe it is through Christ’s bodily resurrection that a believer is reborn (1 Peter 1:3) as a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17),

made one with God (1 Corinthians 6:17), seated in heavenly places in Christ (Ephesians 2:6), and given Christ’s life in

exchange for his old Adamic life. (Romans 5:17-19; 5:10)

We believe it is as the believer walks by faith in Christ (Romans 1:17) that he can experience victory over the world, the flesh, and the Devil.

(Galatians 2:20, 5:22-25)

We believe it is through the personal ministry of the indwelling Holy Spirit that the believer is empowered to experience consistent victory over sin, but never sinless perfection. (Romans 6:12-18; Galatians 5:16-17)
