Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).Thus, we believe in the message that the Bible brings to all mankind. Because the Bible comes from God, it answers our most important questions with authority: Who is God? What is life about? What is my purpose?

The Bible says that God created man and woman in His image (Genesis 1:27). Mankind was created to have a perfect relationship with God (Genesis 3:8), but because of sin, we are all separated from God (Isaiah 59:2). The message of Good News, found in the New Testament, is a message of hope for all who believe it and obey it. The gospel message is that although man is a sinner, deserving of death, God loved mankind enough to provide salvation. Paul warned that all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), and the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). Comfort comes, however, in knowing that the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). Christians are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24). The amazing grace of God is truly good news.

At the gospel`s heart is Christ`s death, burial, and resurrection. As Peter preached the first gospel sermon on Pentecost, he spoke of Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs (Acts 2:22). Although put to death, death could not hold Him: This Jesus hath God raised up (Acts 2:32). Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36). The people were pricked in their heart, and said, Men and brethren, what shall we do? (Acts 2:37) Peter told them how to accept the good news, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38). The gospel is for all that are afar off (Acts 2:39). The church would include the Gentiles as well as the Jews. Faith moved many to obey: They that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls (Acts 2:41). The church grew rapidly as many were added to the church (Acts 2:47)

Christ commands: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:19,20).
