Our Beliefs

1. We Believe in the Trinity (three in one) of the Godhead.  God is one, revealed in three identities: God the Father, the creator of all things;  Jesus the Son, the incarnated one; and the Holy Spirit.
 
2.  We believe Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for the forgiveness of sin, was buried in a tomb, and was resurrected from the dead three days later, ascended to heaven and is now at the right hand of the Father.
 
3.  We believe that Jesus will return again for His church at a future time, known only by God, and we will be joint heirs of the gift of eternal life.
 
4. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation and the way to be united with God for the rest of eternity. Salvation is obtained through grace alone and our works are a by-product of our salvation.
 
5.  We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine being, and is sent to indwell, guide, gift, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service, and to convict the world of sin.
