What We Believe

 

The Bible

The Bible is the word of God to his creation, man-kind. It was written by man but inspired by God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We believe the word of God is true, carries authority, is without error and connects to matters of our daily lives.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 | Proverbs 30:5-6 | Isaiah 40:8


Jesus

We believe Jesus Christ was God in flesh and was born of the Holy Spirt to the virgin Mary. He performed numerous miracles as well as living a sinless life. His death and resurrection creates the only way to access God the Father.

Salvation

Through the ultimate sacrifice, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ we receive forgiveness and are saved from the penalty of sin. Salvation is a free gift given through the grace of God which can not be earned by works but is activated by our faith and confession in the death and resurrection of Christ.
