What We Believe
There is one true God who
eternally exists as three persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
Distinct in relationship, the three persons of the trinity are fully God and
are one in essence and purpose. God has revealed Himself to be the infinite
personal Creator, who is sovereign over all things.
Jesus Christ is God's eternal
Son. Being both fully God and fully man; He was born of a virgin, lived a
sinless life, died as an atoning sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, rose
bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven to prepare a place for
believers and to intercede on their behalf.
Mankind was originally created
in God's image but being tempted by Satan, chose to sin and rebel against
God. As a result of this fallen condition, God's image has been marred and
all men and women are born separated from God and in need of salvation.
Through personal repentance and faith in Jesus Christ's finished work on the
cross, we are forgiven our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit and restored into
fellowship with God.
The Holy Spirit draws us
to repent of our sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. He lives in us,
teaches us, equips us with spiritual gifts for effective ministry and
empowers us to live, grow, and serve in obedience to God. We are given the full measure of the
Holy Spirit upon conversion.
The Church is the living Body
of Christ on earth and comprised of all true believers in Jesus Christ. He
is the head and source of the Church's life, which exists to glorify God.
The Church fulfills its mission by celebrating the glory and goodness of
God, cultivating personal growth in Christ, caring about one another in
biblical community and communicating the gospel in words and actions to the
Jesus Christ will physically return to earth to establish his eternal kingdom. He will judge the world, reward the saints and rule for all eternity. This is the blessed hope of the Church and its encouragement for perseverance in faith and ministry. Those who have been reborn in Christ will live with Him forever.
