What We Believe

-The Bible is the inspired Word of God.

-God is one Being existing in 3 persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

-The Holy Spirit has the ministries of convicting, regenerating, indwelling, sealing, enlightening, instructing and guiding.

-Mankind fell when Adam and Eve sinned and we need a Savior.

-Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ. He made our salvation possible by his death, burial and resurrection. Good works cannot save us.

-Believers can have assurance of their salvation.

-Although we are saved from our sins, we still battle the world, the flesh, and the Devil. Our goal is to become like Jesus each day we live as the Holy Spirit changes us.

-God has chosen to do His work through His church, the body of believers.

-Baptism and communion are ordinances that the church must observe.

-There will be a 7-year tribulation period during which God will pour out His wrath on mankind. Jesus will return to take believers home to Heaven before this period.

-The promises made to Israel will be fulfilled in a literal 1000-year kingdom on earth.

-Satan is real. He is a fallen angel and seeks to lead people away from God. In the end, he will be thrown into Hell.

-Believers and unbelievers will be resurrected.

-Unbelievers will be judged for not believing in Jesus and cast into Hell on the basis of it.

-Believers will go to heaven because of their faith in Jesus, but will be judged there for their works and rewarded on the basis of them.
