WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

The Holy Bible:

The whole Bible is inspired by God who used men directed by His spirit to write. The Bible is totally true and free from error in its original language, and is the authority on moral conduct (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).

 

God:

There is only one God who always was and always will be. He is the creator of all things and pursuer of mankind. He exists in the triune relationship of Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22).

 

Jesus Christ:

Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah sent from God as the redeemer of mankind. He was born of a virgin, led a sinless life, worked many miracles proving his deity, died on the cross and rose again in order to have victory over sin, and is now at the right hand of God, becoming the only way into Heaven by taking our punishment on Himself (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35; Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22, Acts 2:22, 10:38; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:9, 11, 2:33, Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3).

 

The Sinfulness of Man:

In our original creation man was perfect, but man voluntarily disobeyed God severing the relationship that was from the beginning. This separation brought about both physical death and spiritual death for all mankind (Genesis 1:26-27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).

 

The Ordinances of the Church

 

Baptism: Baptism by immersion is commanded in Scriptures for all who repent of their sins and believe in Christ for their salvation. It is the outward symbol of the death, burial, resurrection, and cleansing that we receive inwardly through Christ’s work on the cross (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16: Acts 10:47; Romans 6:4).

 

Communion: Also, known as The Lord’s Supper, is the expression of our belief in Christ which makes us remember what He has done for us and look forward to His promised return. It consists of the bread, which is the symbol of His broken body, and the fruit of the vine, which is the symbol of His blood poured out to cleanse us (2 Peter 1:4; 1 Corinthians 11:26).

 

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit:

The power of the Holy Spirit is a gift given to all believers after Christ ascended into Heaven. With the baptism of the Holy Spirit comes the power for life and service, and gifts for the working of the ministry of God (Luke 24:49; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Acts 8:12-17, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 15:7-9).

 

Evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit:

The physical sign of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the speaking in tongues of the believer (Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-10, 28).

 

Sanctification:

Sanctification is the process in which a believer is set apart from the sin and evil in the world and made holy and perfect, dedicated to God (Romans 12:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 12:14, 13:12).

 

The Mission of the Church

The church was established as the body of Christ through the Holy Spirit to accomplish God’s continuing work on earth. Each believer is an important part of the mission and plan that God has for this world, and as a unified body the church is to share the hope of Christ with mankind, be a people to worship God corporately, and build one another up into the image of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:22; Hebrews 12:23: Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16).

 

Divine Healing:

Through the work of Christ on the cross all believers are given the privilege of divine healing which is seen throughout Scripture (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16).

 

The Blessed Hope:

The blessed hope of the church is the promise of Christ’s return. He will one day soon return for his people, both those who have died and those who are yet alive waiting for Him (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52).

 

The Millennial Reign of Christ:

Following the blessed hope of Christs return will be his reign on the earth for one thousand years. This will be a time for the salvation of the nation of Israel and a universal peace (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27, 30; Revelation 1:7, 19:11-14; 20:1-6).

 

The Final Judgment:

There will one day be a final judgment in which all people a brought before God. Those whose names are not found written in the book of life will be condemned to the Lake of Fire for all eternity (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20, 20:11-15, 21:8).

 

The New Heavens and the New Earth:

We as the redeemed children of God look forward to the great day when God creates a new heaven and a new earth as our eternal dwelling place, where He is the divine ruler and in which righteousness lives (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:22).
