What We Believe

As a member of the Restoration Movement The sole basis for our belief in our community is the Bible.  We hold to the motto: "In Essentials Unity, In Non-Essentials Liberty, In All Things Charity "

the Old and New Testaments are God-inspired and without error in their original form. The Bible is the final authority on all matters on which it bears. The Bible teaches there is one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - each possessing all the attributes of deity, known as the Trinity

God our Father the first person of the Trinity created humans to have a relationship with Him, but humanity choses to turn from God by going their own way and ignoring God's Word. As a result, all mankind needs God's saving grace to end their separation from Him and start their lives anew. This new, eternal life in a loving relationship with God comes only through God's undeserved favor through faith and baptism and must be received personally by every individual.  

Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin and eternal punishment by dying on the cross as our substitute. He rose from the dead and is the mediator between us and God. Someday He will return to earth to receive all who have given themselves willingly to Him. Outside of Christ our destiny is Hell, a place of eternal despair and separation from God.

The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity. He teaches and nourishes us all spiritual and directs us all to faith in Christ Jesus. He equips believers for personal growth and service to the church and to the world.  

How to Begin Your Relationship with God:

The love of God is a reality among us: God sent His only Son into the world so that we could find true life through Him. This is the embodiment of truelove: not that we have loved God first, but that He loved us and sent His unique Son on a special mission to become an atoning sacrifice for our sins. So, my loved ones, if God loved us so sacrificially, surely we should love one another.. (1 John 4 7-11)

Hear about God: "Yet faith comes from listening to this Good News—the Good News about Christ." (Romans 10:17)  

Believe Jesus’ message: "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved." (Acts 17:30)  

Admit you need to change: "God has patiently tolerated this kind of ignorance in the past, but now God says it is time to rethink our lives and reject these unenlightened assumptions.” (Acts 17:30)  

Acknowledge Jesus: "If anyone publicly acknowledges me as his friend, I will openly acknowledge him as my friend before my Father in heaven” (Matthew 10:32)  

Begin your new life with God: "Each one of you must turn from sin, return to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; then you also shall receive this gift, the Holy Spirit " (Acts 2:38)  

Live for Jesus: "My dear friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile. ." (1 Corinthians 15:58)
