What We Believe

What We Believe

1. We believe in the historic creeds of the Christian faith—the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.

2. We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is authoritative and trustworthy. Indeed, we believe that in the original autographs the Bible is infallible reflecting the character of God as he inspired these writings.

3. We believe that Jesus of Nazareth, later known as Jesus Christ was born as a result of a miraculous conception. That the Holy Spirit conceived Him in the womb of the Virgin Mary, that he is fully man and fully God, with there being no mixture in his dual nature—the perfect God-Man.

4. We believe that Jesus suffered and died on the cross, his blood being the only possible payment for the sins of man, and that He himself claimed this in saying “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6, NKJV). Therefore, we believe that there is no way to eternal life but through His atoning blood which was shed on the cross. We believe that when he died on the cross, He was dead—not in a coma or other state of unconsciousness.

5. We believe that Jesus miraculously rose from the dead in his body—that his resurrection was indeed both physical and spiritual.

6. We believe that Jesus will come again personally and visibly to establish his kingdom. We believe that His coming is imminent and that it is the Father’s plan; no one can know the time or date of his return.

7. We believe that we serve the one true God in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – who are all equal in attributes and same in character.

8. We believe that God made man in his own image. Sin was imputed to humanity from Adam. Therefore, because of this sin nature, man is incapable of a right relationship with God apart from the atoning work of Christ.

9. We believe that the great commission instructs believers to go “…to the end of the earth..” (Acts 1:8b, NKJV) to further spread the Gospel.

10. We believe that the universal “body of Christ” (I Cor. 12:27, NKJV) – the holy catholic church—is made up of believers in Jesus, and that his body should strive to work in harmony regardless of denominational label.

As we agree in Christ and in the aforementioned doctrines, we will work together to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ ”…to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8b, NKJV)
