There is one God who is the creator of all things and He reveals himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible is God’s Word and was the product of God inspired, Holy Spirit writing through men who were moved by the Holy Spirit. It is accurate, authoritative and for our everyday lives.
Jesus is the only one who can restore us to God. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe that his death, being crucified, was payment for our sins. We believe in the bodily resurrection and that Jesus ascended to the right hand of His Father. Jesus will return to earth in power and glory.
In order to receive forgiveness from God we must repent and believe in Jesus which will result in loving our neighbor as self.
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God and is not earned. Anyone who calls on Jesus will be saved and there will be life-fruit as evidence.
Water Baptism is a commandment of Jesus and is symbolic of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.
The Holy Spirit brings us to salvation, builds our character, fills the believer, gives us boldness, and manifests in us Spiritual Gifts that we are to use in our daily lives and for others.
There is the gift of healing for our physical bodies through prayer and being anointed with oil.
The church meets together and unites because of the Gospel from varied ethnic, cultural, lingual and socio-economic groups into one body. Together we worship, are equipped and mature as a blood-bought, diversely united body under Jesus which declares the richness of God in our community and into the spirit realms.
A person’s after death destination is heaven (and eventually new earth) or hell and is determined by their response to Jesus, and neighbor. Heaven and hell are literal. After Jesus’ return to rule and reign, believers will be with Him forever in the new heaven and earth.
It is our responsibility to live a life devoted to Jesus, nourished from the Bible, with the help of the Holy Spirit. We are to defend the rights of the poor and marginalized, to speak against injustices, and to live and share the reconciling love of God and Gospel of Jesus Christ with others, from our home to the ends of the earth.
