What We Believe
God is the Maker and Ruler of the universe. Not only is the Creator, He is our Heavenly Father. He loves us as no other can and will provide for all our needs. He is present everywhere, so that we can never be separated from his love.
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God who gave His life as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world. After three days in the grave, he arose from the dead and is alive forevermore. He is King of King and Lord of Lords who will be finally victorious over all evil. He is the means by which our sins are forgiven and the only means by which we can be reconciled to God.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son, three Persons in the triune God. He is “the other Comforter” who dwells in the hearts of all who follow Jesus, convincing us of the truth of Christ’s teachings and empowering us to live as God’s people before a watching world.
Human beings are by nature sinful and cannot make themselves good enough to stand before a Holy and Righteous God. We can only be made righteous by God’s Grace and our acceptance of God’s forgiveness through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Through our faith in Jesus, we will be given be given new life, and this life is eternal.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is the inspired word of God. It is our only guide to show us what we should believe and how we should live. It is for everyone to read so that all may hear God speak to their hearts and minds.
ABOUT THE CHURCH
The Church is made up of people of every race who believe in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, and the members are His Body. Children of church members are called “children of the covenant.” Their baptism is a sign and seal of this covenant relationship and of their membership in the Christian family. The mission of the church is to make Jesus Christ known throughout the whole world.
ABOUT THE SACRAMENTS
We have two sacraments, instituted by Christ in the new covenant, or testament. They are baptism and the holy supper, or communion.
