We believe

As disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we bear witness to the one living God, revealed through the Bible as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe . .

 

imgres…that the Bible is the inspired word of God, it is our final authority.

“All scripture is breathed of God and is profitable for teaching, correction, rebuke, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16 

images …that God is one, revealed in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Coequal and coeternal

There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:4-6

 

images-1… that all people are  sinful, by nature and practice we have all rebelled against God and are separated from Him.

“All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God” Romans 3: 23

man …that God became a Human Being, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He was fully God and fully man, and lived a perfect life.

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  John 1:14

imgres-1… that Jesus Christ died to take our punishment, He was raised to life, ascended into heaven and is coming again.

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures . . .  Look He is coming in the clouds and every eye will see Him” 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4, Revelation 1:7

 

images-3… that only through personal faith in Jesus Christ can people know God.

“For there is one God and one mediator between God and human beings, Christ Jesus, Himself human, who gave Himself as a ransom for all people.” 1 Timothy 2:5

 

imgres-3… that the followers of Jesus are commanded by God to proclaim the gospel to the world.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. ”   Mathew 28: 19

 

imgres-2… that there will be a resurrection of the body and everyone will give account.

“But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.” 1 Peter 4: 5

 

 

crown… that one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”  Philippians 2:9-11
