what we believe
Jesus told us to "love the Lord our God with all of our heart and all of our soul and all of our strength." He also told us "love your neighbor as you love yourself." We believe that it is just that simple. And we show God that we love Him as we show love to others.
What we believe....
* about God
God is the one and only true God, yet He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
God is the Creator, so everything belongs to Him and is under His control.
God is holy, so He is righteous, majestic and loving.
God is all knowing and purposeful, so He is at work to bring about His will.
No person, thing or idea compares to God.
* about the Scriptures
God reveals Himself to us through the Bible.
It is accurate, reliable and authoritative.
* about people
People are made in God's image and for His pleasure.
Everyone falls short of God's intention, or ideal for people.
In other words, everyone has sinned.
As a result, we are separated from Him, even though He wants to be in an intimate relationship with each of us.
* about salvation
Jesus, God's Son, came and lived on the earth, died adn rose again.
God offers His free gift of salvation to all who place their faith in Jesus as their Savior.
This is the only way to be forgiven and reconciled to God.
Anyone who does this is adobpted as a son or daughter into God's family and will live with Him forever.
