We believe that though we are born good, each of us reaches an age where we knowingly sin (violate God’s will), separating us from God and each other. Thus, we need a Savior!
We believe that God so loved the world that he sent his Son to die for us. Through his death and resurrection, Christ defeated sin and death, making our salvation possible. This salvation is by grace (the free gift of God) and is received by being baptized (immersed) into Christ’s name for the remission of sins.
We believe faith is expressed in believing that God raised Jesus from the dead and confessing that Jesus is Lord. Faith is also expressed in repenting of our sins and being baptized (immersed) into Christ’s name for the forgiveness of sins and to receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. [Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 2:38]
We believe that when a person is saved, God, not us, places him or her into the church and he or she becomes a “member” of Christ’s body. We invite all to accept God’s offer of salvation and beome a member of his church.
We believe that there is a heaven and a hell, and that Jesus will return again to judge the living and the dead. All of the dead will be resurrected, and those in Christ will put on incorruptible, Spiritual bodies and live eternally with God, reigning with God and Christ in the new heaven and new earth.
