We believe that every single person has the right to know God ( Romans 10:13). We believe that this is translated through the love of one another- a real love that can be felt. Real love is who we are and a way that any person can connect to the Father through the love they feel in our community.
We believe that people need to see God in a real way. Everyone needs help emotionally, physically, mentally, relationally, and spiritually. None is exempt. As we grow to be more like Christ, we actively go out of our way to show the compassion that Christ showed us to make a real difference in the lives of others.
We believe in community, in family, and the local church. We are better together and draw strength from one another. We want to strengthen our homes, our families and our community. We want to be an encouragement to our friends, neighbors, and family.
Both the Old Testament and the New Testament are the inspired, infallible words of God and the authoritative words of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 2:11)
The one, true God has revealed himself eternally and self-existent as the great "I Am", the Creator of heaven and earth, the Redeemer of all of mankind. He has revealed himself as the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10-11, Matthew 28:28, Luke 3:22)
God exists as one in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is the Trinity. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority and always work in total unity. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 61:1, Matthew 28:19, Mark 1:9-11, Luke 1:35, John 5:21-23, Romans 8:9-11, 1 Corinthians 8:6, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Hebrews 1:8-10, James 2:19)
Jesus, is the Son Of God, the second person of the Trinity. While He was on earth, He was 100% man and 100% God. He is the only man to ever live a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross, being the atonement of our sins by the shedding of His blood. He rose on the third day, according to scriptures, ascending to the right hand of the Father, one day to return in power and glory, (John 1:1, 14, 20:28, 1 Timothy 3:16, Isaiah 9:6, Philippians 2:5-6, 1 Timothy 2:5)
The third person of the Trinity and Giver of Supernatural Gifts. The Holy Spirit is the person of the Trinity that indwells, baptizes and gives supernatural gifts to all believers for empowerment to serve and witness. His present work is the same as in the New Testament. (Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-8, 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, James 5:14-16)
Mankind was created good and upright. However, by voluntary disobedience, fell into sin and thereby incurred not only physical death but spiritual death which is separation from God. (Genesis 1:26-27, 2:17, 3:6, Romans 5:12-19)
Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ Son of God, giving us forgiveness of sin and eternal life. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward Jesus Christ. Salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned. (John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10, 12:1)
Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. We will either live eternally separated from God by sin in Hell or eternally with God in Heaven through forgiveness and salvation. (John 3:16, John 14:17, Roamsn 6:23, Romans 8:17-18, Revelation 20:15, 2 Corinthians 2:7-9)
Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will happen at a date undisclosed in scripture. (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64, Acts1:9-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8, Revelation 1:7)
