Our Beliefs

"In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In all things, love." -Unknown

Let there be real harmony among you so there won't be any split in the church. I plead with you to

be of one mind, united in thought and purpose. -1 Corinthians 1:10 [LB]

In essential beliefs, we have UNITY.

There is one body and one Spirit... there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and

Father of us all. -Ephesians 4:4-6 [NIV]

In non-essential beliefs, we have LIBERTY.

Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters... Who are you

to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls… So then each of us will give

an account of himself to God... So whatever you believe about things keep between yourself and

God. -Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22 [NIV]

In all our beliefs, we show LOVE.

If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have

the faith that can move mountains - but have no love, I amount to nothing at all. -1 Cor. 13:2 [PH]

  • About God

    God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

    Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2; 1 Corinthians 13:14

  • About Man

    Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." This attitude separates man from God.

    Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2

  • About Eternity

    Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.

    John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46

  • About Jesus Christ

    Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again to earth to reign as the Lord of Lords.

    Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14, 15; Titus 2:13

  • About Salvation

    Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works – only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

    Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

  • About Eternal Security

    Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.

    John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5

  • About The Holy Spirit

    The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He also gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under his control.

    2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16, 12:7; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

  • About The Bible

    The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

    2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5

  • About Baptism

    Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.

    Matthew 28:18-20

  • About Marriage & Sexuality

    Marriage has been instituted and ordained by God and is defined as the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God's unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His Church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race. Sexuality is assigned by God at birth, whatever that may be, and Bible does not permit an individual to alter their sexual identity physically or otherwise.

    Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Deuteronomy 22:5, 23:1
