We Believe In...

God

Because of the corruption of sin everyone stands guilty before God. His JUSTICE demands a reckoning. Yet His desire is to forgive us of our sin and save us from the hell we deserve so that we may have eternal life with Him. Our salvation is made possible by Jesus’ death on the cross. We call this ATONEMENT.

While Jesus’ death provided our eternal life, His RESURRECTION from the dead is our guarantee for  eternal life! This eternal life can only be ours if we REPENT of our sin and put our FAITH in Jesus Christ. Through faith we are JUSTIFIED and righteousness is credited or IMPUTED to us.

The Bible

The Bible is at the center of our faith. It is God’s Word and the basis for all we do and teach. We believe that in its original form it is without error or fault in all its teaching. This is called INERRANCY.

Humanity

We are made in the IMAGE OF GOD. God made us on purpose and for a purpose. We are special in the eyes of God, and His purpose for our lives is to know and glorify Him. 

However, Adam and Eve sinned against God. God had warned that the consequence of their disobedience was death. Adam and Eve would eventually die physically but their spiritual death was instant. Thus ORIGINAL SIN entered the world. All of humanity inherits this sin. Though we still reflect the image of God, we are born sinful, unable to know Him on our own, and will eventually die.  Our sinful condition is traditionally referred to as TOTAL DEPRAVITY.

Salvation

Because of the corruption of sin everyone stands guilty before God. His JUSTICE demands a reckoning. Yet His desire is to forgive us of our sin and save us from the hell we deserve so that we may have eternal life with Him. Our salvation is made possible by Jesus’ death on the cross. We call this ATONEMENT. 

While Jesus’ death provided our eternal life, His RESURRECTION from the dead is our guarantee for  eternal life! This eternal life can only be ours if we REPENT of our sin and put our FAITH in Jesus Christ. Through faith we are JUSTIFIED and righteousness is credited or IMPUTED to us.
