FAITH STATEMENTS

God – We believe in the trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – the three-in-one Godhead. The creator of heaven and earth, omniscient, omnipotent, who has always existed, is with us now and proceeds into our future. Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus – We believe that Jesus is the Christ (Savior), Son of God, and Son of Man who came as a willing sacrifice to be crucified, die and be buried for sinners so that we may have eternal life with Him in heaven. We believe that he defied death and rose from the grave and ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father God. John 1:14-18; Colossians 1:13-20

Bible – We believe the bible is the inspired Word of God. It is completely accurate, and an instruction book for all aspects of human living by God’s will. 2 Peter 1:16-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Salvation – We believe that salvation is a free gift given by God by sending his son, Jesus to die on the cross for our sin so that we may receive eternal life. We believe that this is the only way to eternal life and heave according to the writings in the bible. We believe that Jesus is coming back again to judge the living and the dead. Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 4:11-12
