God the Father

There is only one God, the creator of the heavens and the earth. And He desires to have a relationship with us.
 

Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus is the one and only Son of God (John 3:16), was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18, 23-25), died for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:3), arose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:4), ascended back into heaven with the promise to come back again (Acts 1:9-11; John 14:3); 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) 

The Holy Spirit

He is one with the Father and the Son and He serves as our comforter and our guide. He comes to indwell the believer when they repent of their sins and are baptized (immersed) into Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38). His ongoing work is to guide, lead, and empower the believer for Godly living and service (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27) 
 
 
The Bible
 
The Bible is the inspired and perfect word of God. It contains no error or mistake (11 Timothy 3:16-17) We believe it is given to us directly from the mind of God, and it is a real and relevant guide for how we, as followers of Christ, are to live our lives (Psalm 119:105)
 

Our Need for God

All of us are tremendously valuable and loved by God (John 3:16). But, we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory and high standards for our lives (Romans 3:23) 
 

God’s Forgiveness to Us 

Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ Jesus as Savior and Lord (John 3:16; Titus 3:3-8). Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith in Christ, and be immersed into Christ (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Romans 10:9; Galatians 3:26-29). 
 

God’s Church 

The Church is the Body of Christ on earth. It is a living, growing vibrant family of believers who live in spiritual community in service to the Lord. It is empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to lead non-believers to Christ and build up the saved (Ephesians 4:1-6).
