What We Believe about God and the Bible

God

We believe there is only one true God who exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:26; Matt. 26:42; Mark 1:9-11; Mark 14:32-42; 2 Cor. 13:14)
We believe God is perfect, all powerful, ever present, and knows all. (Gen. 1:1-3; Psalm 139; Isa 40:13-14; Heb. 1:3; Rev. 1:8; Rev. 21:6; Rev. 22:13)
We believe Jesus, the Son of God, frees us from God’s condemnation through His perfect life, death and resurrection, and that He will come again to reign a new earth and heaven with His followers. (Mark 2:8; John 1:1; John 2:25; Phil. 2:9-11; 1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 1:6; Heb. 2:16-17; Heb. 4:15; 1 Peter 2:21)
We believe the Holy Spirit works to make us aware of God and builds our relationship with God.  (John14:16 & 26; John 15: 26; John 16:18; 1 Cor. 12; Gal. 5:22-23; Eph. 3:3-5)

Humanity

We believe God created us in His image to be with Him eternally, but humanity’s disobedience to God severed that relationship. God restored the relationship through Jesus.  (Gen. 3:21; Ex. 34:7; Isa. 59:2; John 3:16; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 6:23; 1 Cor. 15:22; 1 Cor. 5:1-8 & 21; Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 9:27)

Scripture

We believe the Bible is God’s Words to us.  (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

Church

We believe the church exists to serve God’s purposes, equipping followers of Jesus to make disciples. (Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:42; Eph. 5:23; Rev. 19:7)
