What We Believe
GOD is eternally existing in three co-equal persons - FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT. This is the Trinity.
JESUS CHRIST died as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins, was buried, resurrected and ascended into Heaven. He is present there as High Priest and Advocate for all believers. We have a "blessed hope" in His imminent return.
THE HOLY SPIRIT convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He is the life of every believer and empowers the preaching and teaching of the gospel - which is the good news of salvation and the kingdom of God as announced by Christ.
THE BIBLE consists of the Old and New Testaments. Verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings, the Scriptures are the supreme and final authority.
PEOPLE were created in the image of God, but because they sinned, they incurred both physical and spiritual death – which is separation from God. People are born with a sinful nature; all are sinners in thought, word and deed.
SALVATION is given to all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith. Born again of the Holy Spirit, they become children of God and inherit eternal life.
THE CHURCH is the Body of Christ whose mission it is to preach the Gospel to all the world.

THE GREAT COMMISSION
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always to the end of the age."
