A Church Where Jesus Is Lord And Everybody Is Somebody



What We Believe  

 We believe that God is the all powerful, all knowing, Creator of the Universe.  He is the one true God.  God is the Spirit, and He existed before time and space and transcends the limits of both.  Being the moral ruler of the universe, God is Holy and Righteous.  He never changes.  He is today, as He was yesterday, and as He will be tomorrow.  We believe God is three persons but one God.  He is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

      God created humankind, in His own image and for a special purpose.  This purpose was for his glorification and to share a personal relationship with His human creation.  God provides for all the needs of humankind including food, shelter, pleasure, and companionship.  God is omniscient and knows what is best, therefore, He gave the first humans rules to live by. 

     Created by God, free moral agents, and tempted by Satan, the first humans chose to disobey God.  This disobedience brought sin into the world.  Sin and evil are of the world, but not of God.  Sin or the failure to obey the laws of God continues to plague the human race and will do so until Jesus returns to claim the world as His own, and Satan is defeated for the final time.  All time is moving towards this end.   

     We believe that Jesus Christ, the God-Man, is the son of God who became flesh and dwelt among us.  He is the supreme revelation of God.  Jesus is the redemptive work of God in the New Testament.  He is the evidence of Godís grace and love for sinful humans. Jesus is the way to God for sinful humans.  Without the atoning work of Jesus on the cross, sinful humans would continue to be lost in sin and separated from God.  The good news for sinful man is that Jesus not only died on the cross for our sins, but He conquered death through His resurrection. 

     The Holy Spirit is the third Person in the Trinity.  He is the power by which the sinnerís heart is convicted unto repentance through faith.  This repentance through faith  by the power of the Holy Spirit leads to conversion and salvation. 

     We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired record of Godís redemptive work in the world on behalf of humankind.  The Bible is the inerrant Word of God.  God and Christ speak to us today through the Scriptures; The Bible is the authority for all principles and practices of faith for the Christian.   

     We believe that Jesus conquered death and then returned to his father.  He will return for His Church in a time known only by God.  Until His return, the church is to go unto all the world, teaching, preaching, and baptizing, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, so that others might share in the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
