What We Believe


About God

We believe that the Lord our God, Yahweh (His personal name), is one in essence, yet three distinct persons as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is the only God that exists (Isa. 43:11, John 1:1,14). We believe that through finished work of Christ, God dwells among His people forever (Rev. 21:1-4).

About the Word of God

We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the inerrant Word of God in their original form, spoken from God to His prophets and apostles and written down by the guidance of the Holy Spirit (Heb 4:12; 2 Tim 3:16). God has preserved His Word for us to the extent that even in transcriptional and translational errors, He has seen fit to also preserve the textual variants. We believe it to be of utmost importance to study the Scriptures in light of their original intent and audience.

About Salvation

We believe that every person has sinned against God and deserves death (Rom. 3:23; 6:23). But God, being rich in mercy, through His plan of salvation, sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty for sinners who would put their faith in Him. Through faith in Christ, we are made new in the image of God and share in the glories of God forever (Col. 1:13-20).

About the Christian Life

We believe that those who have embraced Christ as their Savior will live abundant and happy lives by relinquishing the authority of their lives over to their Lord and King. Thus, their lives will reflect the living Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit within them (Rom. 15:13).

About the Church

We believe the Church is eternally alive in Christ and that the members of the Church, while on earth, demonstrate their unity with Christ through the local church. We believe that the local church is to glorify God to the world we live in through the proclamation of the Gospel, which is accomplished through word and deed (Eph. 3:20-21).
