What We Believe

    We believe there is one true and living God who has revealed Himself to us as God the Father, Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit. All being equal, with distinct personal attributes, yet without division, called a “Trinity”. (Genesis 1:1,26; 1 John 1:1-4).

    We believe that God created man for a specific purpose to fulfill in His creation. In the beginning, man was at peace with God and lived-in harmony with all creation. Through free will of man in disobedience to God’s command, sin entered the world and humankind was justly condemned. Humanity’s disobedience broke the bond between our Holy God and His creation. (Genesis 2:16-17, 3:23, 1 Corithians 15:22a).

    We believe the Holy Bible, the authority of Scripture, was given to men whom God divinely inspired to record His instructions for His creation. Through the Scripture, we encounter and come to know our Creator. The Scriptures are for our instruction, correction, rebuke, reproof, and reveal the principle by which the world will be judged. The Scripture also reveals God’s unconditional love for creation and how He reconciles humankind back to Himself through faith in Jesus the Christ. Scriptures are timeless truths because God is the Author and Finisher of our faith. (John 1:13, 2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 12:2).
