OUR BELIEFS

STATEMENT OF FAITH

The purpose of our Statement of Faith is to communicate our basic beliefs regarding a relationship with Father God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We truly desire to walk in the love of Jesus Christ with all Christians according to John 13:34-35 “A new command I give to you: Love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

We believe in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit

  • Ephesians 4:6

  • I Timothy 2:5

The Lord Jesus Christ

  • II Timothy 3:16

  • Deuteronomy 4:2 

 

Our Need For A Savior

We believe that all are born sinners. That the Holy Spirit convicts of sin; that the Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for sin by shedding His precious blood on the cross as the atonement for sin; that those who refuse to accept His sacrifice for their sin are eternally lost; and that those who repent of their sins and personally accept and confess the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior receive forgiveness of sin, everlasting life, and become children of God.

Baptism of The Holy Spirit
