We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who reveals Himself as Father, Son, and Spirit. (Matt 3:16-17; 2 Cor 13:14)
We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man at the same time, who became like us to bring about our salvation. (John 1:1-18)
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active in the world, bringing us to salvation.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, giving us all we need to know about how to be saved and live a life pleasing to God. (2 Tim 3:15-17; 2 Pet 1:20-21)
We believe this is an attitude that wants to play God, call the shots, and results in alienating people from God, and causing rippling effects throughout the universe. It is a human plight with no exceptions, crying out for a remedy. (Rom 3:23 )
We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross and that by trusting in His death, we are restored to a right relation to God. (Isa 53:5-6; John 3:14-17)
HUMANITIES FREE CHOICE
We believe that no one can turn to God in his or her own natural power. However, God has enabled and empowered us by His grace to freely turn from our sin to His salvation, but He has not forced us to do so.
We believe that everyone must repent, turn away from their sins, and trust Christ to forgive and cleanse them. (Isa 55:6-7; Acts 17:30-31)
JUSTIFICATION & ADOPTION
We believe that when we turn from sin and trust in Christ, the old record of sin is wiped clean, and we are born anew, thus becoming part of the family of God. (Acts 13:39; Titus 3:4-7; Gal 4:4-7)
We believe that after being born anew, God calls us and enables us to move on to a higher level of maturity that entails holy living. When God calls us to be holy, he also enables us to live in such a way with victory over sin. This holy calling involves cleansing our spirit, filling us with His perfect love, and giving us the power to live victoriously. (2 Tim 1:9
; 2 Pet 3:11
; 1 John 4:16-18
