Our teaching & Beliefs

Our Goal - Present Balanced Relevant Bible Teaching

We teach with the intent of practical application for you and your family.  We want you to be able to take the messages home and live them.  “Essential beliefs” are those core timeless beliefs necessary to experience spiritual new birth and that lead to discipleship and fellowship with God, Christian growth and maturity.  Romans 14 allows for personal conviction in some areas.

"In the essential beliefs, we have unity.  In the non-essential beliefs, we have liberty. In all our beliefs, we show charity. (love)” ~ St. Augustine. 

Our Core Beliefs:

God -  God is the creator and the ruler of the universe. He exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit (called the Trinity).  These three are co-equal and are one God.

Jesus - Jesus is the Son of God.  He was born of a virgin and lived a perfect, sinless human life. He offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days, ascended into heaven, and will return again someday to reign as King of Kings.

Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for salvation through Jesus.  He lives in every Christian from the moment of Salvation and provides the believer with power for living, understanding spiritual truths, wisdom, and guidance for doing what is right.  

Bible - The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, called inspiration. It is the supreme source of truth for all Christian beliefs and living.  It is to be correctly divided, in context, to understand its message to us. 

People - People are made in the spiritual image of God. People are the supreme objects of God’s creation. Although people have tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This separates people from God and causes many problems in life. 

Salvation - Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we choose to accept or reject it. We can never make up for our sins by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting Jesus Christ as God’s offer for forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. 

Eternity – The soul of every human being was created to live forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through salvation and forgiveness. Hell is eternal separation from God. Heaven is eternal union with God. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
