What We Believe
What We Believe
We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, the complete revelation of God’s will for mankind, salvation, the life of faith, and the abundant life.
(John 10:35, Matthew 5:18, 2 Timothy 2:15, 3:15-17)
We believe there is one God, maker of all things, infinitely perfect, eternally existing, and everlasting in love for mankind and his people.
(Genesis 1:1-2, Deuteronomy 6:4, John 1:3, Psalm 33:6-9, Psalm 110:1)
We believe Jesus Christ is God’s eternal Son, being fully God and man. He died on the cross as the complete sacrifice for our sins and rose bodily from the dead and is now at the right hand of the Father.
(Luke 1:38, 2:40, John 1:1, 8:58, Acts 1:9-11, Titus 2:13)
We believe the Holy Spirit ministers in this age to move us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. He also serves to indwell, guide, encourage, instruct, grow, and empower us for godly living and spiritual gifting for effective ministry.
(John 16:8-10, Acts 1:8, Romans 8:4, Galatians 5:22-23)
We believe humanity is the apex of God’s eternal love but is damaged because of sin. Therefore, all humanity needs redemption-not because humanity is bad, but because humanity is sinful, in need of God’s everlasting grace.
(Romans 3:23, 5:12, 10:9-10)
We believe Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead that we might have eternal salvation. Thus, eternal life begins the moment we exercise faith in Christ and will last forever.
(Romans 5:1, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Galatians, 3:13)
We believe the church is the living Body of Christ and comprises of all true believers in Jesus Christ. Christ is the head of the church, the source of church life, which exists to glorify God in the earth. The church is the loving partner of Jesus Christ to make a difference in the world for the glory of God.
(Matthew 5:14-16, 16:15-19, Acts 2:41-47, Ephesians 4:14-16)
We believe Jesus Christ will physically return to the earth to establish an eternal kingdom. Righteousness and justice will reign in full. This is the hope of every follower of Jesus, where we will live with Him forever.
(John 14:1-3, Matthew 24:29-31, Revelation 19:11-21)
