We Are a Church 

 
 

That exists to reflect Jesus, changing the world one community at a time. We are dedicated to loving people wherever they are in their journeys and growing deeper in faith as we display His love to the broken and hurting.

We believe there are five “Life Signs” that followers of Jesus grow into through walking in relationship with Him.

Beliefs

 

GOD  God is the Creator & Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: Father, Son & Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal & are one God. (Genesis 1:1,26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

SALVATION Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6 & 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1)

JESUS CHRIST Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life & offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin & death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory & will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings & Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5 & 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)

ETERNAL SECURITY Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace & power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace & keeping power of God that gives this security. (John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25 & 10:10-14; 1 Peter 1:3-5)

THE HOLY SPIRIT The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father & the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation to provide power for living, understanding of spiritual truth & guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13 & 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12 & 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)

THE BIBLE  The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs & living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160 & 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

MAN  Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2)

ETERNITY  Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness & salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven & Hell are places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; 1 John 2:25 & 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15)
