Our core beliefs are summarized in (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Jesus died for our sins, was buried, was resurrected, and thereby offers salvation to all those who receive him by faith.
Christianity is more about a relationship with God than religious practices. Instead of living by "do's and don'ts" the goal of a Christian is to grow closer to God. This relationship is possible because of the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
The Bible is the inspired "God-breathed", WORD of God. It's teaching from the Old and New testaments is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16) (2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe there is only one true God that exists in three persons, the Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.
We were created to have relationship with the Father, but sin separates us from God. (Romans 3:23; 5:12)
Jesus Christ walked the earth fully God yet fully man. (Philippians 2:6-11) He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and walked the earth among humanity. He was sinless, but was crucified on the cross. After his death, he was buried and rose again and now lives at the right hand of the Father making intercession for believers forever. (Hebrews 7:25)
The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity. He is fully God. He is eternal, all knowing, all present, has a will and can speak. He is alive. He is a person. His ministry is to bear witness of Christ. (John 15:26) He is our helper and guide. (John 16:7)
All of us are born into sin and no one is good enough to earn salvation. It is this sin that separates us from God. Salvation comes through our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus and his shed blood for the forgiveness of our sins.
Jesus' death on the cross completely pays the sin debt for all who repent and accept Him as personal Lord and Savior. This is what restores the broken relationship between God and man.
As Christians, we are to live lives honoring and reflecting the Spirit of God, who lives in us. We are to live out Jesus' command to "spread the Good News of Christ and salvation" to the world around us. (Matthew 28: 16-20)
