        CORE BELIEFS

                  1. The Bible is God's inspired, inerrant Word. It is absolute truth, sufficient for every person 
                   to know God and be made right with God, and live a life that is pleasing to God. 

 

2. There is only one God, the Creator of the heavens and earth. This God, revealed in the

Bible, is eternal, sovereign, all-sufficient, all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise, fully

loving, and completely good. Though He alone is God, He exists in three persons -- Father,

Son, Holy Spirit.

 

3. God created humans in His image with freedom to choose between right and wrong. Humans

chose sin, and this brought separation from God. Sinners place themselves under God's

righteous condemnation. Sin brings terrible consequences in this life. Even more, it brings

eternal punishment in hell.

 

4. Because of His great love for us, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, as a sacrifice for our

sins. Jesus was fully God and fully man. Born of a virgin, He lived a perfect, sinless life.

He is the Lord (Ruler), Savior, and Messiah. He died on a cross to pay the penalty for our

sins, was buried, and rose bodily from the grave on the third day.

 

5. Jesus presently reigns over the universe, sitting at the right hand of the Father. He

has all authority in heaven and earth, and is working out His will toward an incredible

climax. While He allows freedom of  choice, He can use sinful human choices to accomplish

His perfect, eternal will.

 

6. God offers salvation through Jesus as a free gift. This gift is available  to everyone,

but only received by those who surrender to Jesus in faith and repentance. We receive this

gift  by God's grace, through personal faith in Jesus.

 

7. The Scriptures instruct those who believe and repent of sin to be baptized into Christ.

The Bible promises wonderful  results for those who through faith are baptized into Jesus,

including forgiveness of sins, salvation, and the gift of  the Holy Spirit.

 

8. Upon conversion to Christ, the believer receives the gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

The result is new life in Christ. The Holy Spirit empowers us to live for Jesus, guides us,

encourages us, and equips us to minister for Jesus.

 

9. Everyone who receives Jesus is a member of Christ's body on earth, the church. Christ

indwells His church through the Holy Spirit and empowers the church to accomplish God's

purposes on earth.

 

10. All creation is moving toward an incredible climax: Jesus will  return as a conquering

King to judge the living and the dead. Every person will worship Him and give an account of

his/her life. Jesus will burn the present universe into nonexistence, and create a new,

perfect heaven and earth.

 

11. Those who belong to Jesus will receive the fullness of  their  salvation when Jesus

returns. While in this life there are incredible blessings for those who have faith in

Christ, when He returns He will remove all sin, death, illness, sorrow, and pain. Believers

in Jesus will receive perfect, resurrection bodies and live with Jesus forever on the new

earth (heaven on earth). The result is eternal joy, righteousness, and peace. Even more, we

will see Jesus face to face and experience His full glory.

 

12. Those who have rejected Christ will receive eternal punishment in hell. That is why it

is vital and urgent to resolve the issue of faith in Jesus in this life.
