What We Believe

 
We believe that the Bible is proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be the Word of God, trustworthy and true.
 ( 2 Timothy 3:16)
 
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God who died for me and you. (Matthew 3:17, Psalm 2:7)
 
We believe that faith is believing God will do what He says He will do if we do what He asks us to. (John 20:31, Romans 10:17, Hebrews 11:6)
 
 
 
– We Believe that the Bible is the only book that is the inspired Word of God, unchangeable and infallible. Galatians 1:9, 2 Tim 3:16-17 
 
– We believe that there is one God describable by three distinct personas: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 2 Cor 13:14, Romans 9:5, Mark 12:29
 
– We believe that Jesus Christ was sent to earth born of the virgin Mary (Matt 1:18-25) as the physical manifestation of the invisible God (Col 1:15) to pay for the wages of sin, that we might have the free gift of life. (Rom 6:23) 
 
– We believe that each person is accountable for sin based on our choices (James 1:14) and that everyone of sound mind has sinned (Romans 3:23) and stands condemned apart from the blood of Christ. (John 3:16-18)
 
– We believe that the whole Bible is true and therefore, God in His great love for us, has provided forgiveness of sins for all who follow His whole plan of salvation as found in scripture: 
 
   ~ Hear – Romans 10:17
 
   ~ Believe – John 3:18, Heb 11:6
 
   ~ Repent – Acts 3:19, Romans 6:1-7
 
   ~ Confess – Romans 10:9-10
 
   ~ Call on the name of the Lord through baptism for the forgiveness of sins to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:21, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21, Acts 2:38-41, Romans 8:9
 
   ~ Be faithful for the rest of your life – Rev 2:10, Heb 10:23-36
 
   ~ Love Christ – Matt 22:36-40, 1 Cor 16:22, John 14:15, 1 Cor 13:13
 
   ~ Love the Church which is the Body of Christ – John 13:34-35
 
   ~ Love the truth – 1 Thess 2:10-11
 
– We believe that Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us and will return to judge all mankind, taking His people to an everlasting heavenly home, but sending all others to everlasting punishment in hell. Matt 25:31-46, John 14:3
 
– We believe that because of the severity of the nature of salvation vs. condemnation it is the duty of the Church to continually be about evangelism, pleading with people to leave a life of sin and to come take the free gift of the water of life. Rev 22:17, Matt 28:16-20
