Here’s a short description of what we believe, but feel free to ask us any questions!
- The Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired and that it is the authoritative standard for every age and every life.
- The Godhead exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – that these three are one God. God is absolute and sole Creator of the universe.
- God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for people, sent Christ into the world to save sinners. Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man; that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and wrought mighty works, wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four Gospels; that He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was raised from the dead on the third day. Later He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from where He is coming again, personally, bodily and visibly.
- Jesus Christ on earth kept all God’s commandments perfectly, and then He took on Himself the punishment that our sins deserved. He did both these things in our place, so that through faith in Christ and His righteousness and sacrifice for sins, and without any merit of our own, we are forgiven our sins and accepted as righteous for Jesus’ sake. This is what is meant by we are saved “by grace alone, through Christ alone, by faith alone”
- Such salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its imputation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or human’s effort and is of pure grace.
- A true believer is eternally secure, that he/she cannot lose his/her salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his/her fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his/her Heavenly Father.
- All who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ, and at death, their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness and at the resurrection their bodies will be raised to the likeness of the body of His glory and dwell forever in the divine presence.
