our beliefs

the bible is the word of god

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.

2 Timothy 3:16


God's word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority and we accept the Bible as our manual for living. Our first question when faced with a decision is, "What does the Bible say?"

We practice daily Bible reading and study. The Bible is the basis for all we believe.

JESUS IS THE SAVIOR FOR MANKIND

Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the father except through me. -John 14:6


Jesus Christ, the second person of the trinity, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between God and us.

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 

(2 Corinthians 5:17)


If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

(Matthew 16:24)


All people need to be forgiven of their sins. New birth occurs when the old sinful person repents of their sins and receives the forgiveness of Jesus. The Bible states that we have been reborn and the old person controlled by sin is gone and the new person controlled by God's truth is born.
