to Strengthen the
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Galatians 6:10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
What We Believe
One Holy God:
Eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Holy Bible:
The inspired, infallible, authoritative source of Christian belief and teaching.
Created in the image of God but fallen, lost and powerless to save himself.
Virgin-born Son of God who was crucified to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of all mankind. He arose from the dead, thereby conquering sin, death and the grave. Jesus will personally return to the earth in power and glory.
Man's Only Hope:
Believe in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Water Baptism and Holy Communion are among the ways we celebrate our hope in Jesus Christ.
Consistent with His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ still offers healing for the physical, relational and emotional pain in our lives.
The Holy Spirit:
Indwells in those who receive Christ and empowers believers to live righteous and holy lives. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, along with its evidences, and the Gifts of the Spirit are available to believers today.
When a life is changed by the love of Christ, we begin a journey of becoming like Christ. It is displayed outwardly in lives of integrity and is shown relationally by love and grace.
Life, as we know it, will come to an end. Jesus will return and show himself to be "King of Kings". Everyone will be held accountable for the choices in their lives. A permanent personal relationship with God, without the influence of evil and pain, will be established for all who chose Christ. This will be heaven... forever.
The Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head, is comprised of all those who, through belief in Christ, have been spiritually changed by the personal work of the Holy Spirit. Believers are called to pursue God's mission, both collectively and individually. For some it is a vocation (pastors, missionaries, etc), for all... a passion.
