beliefs

The compass of our organization is our belief system, which is deeply rooted in our Christian faith. Our beliefs navigate our decisions, determine our relationships,
and direct our mission.

 

god is real.

The one true God is revealed in the Trinity of three persons…Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 1:1, 14, 18; John 15:26). As God’s son, Jesus Christ was both human and divine, He is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6) and “salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to man by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

scriptures are holy.

The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God that offers hope, instruction, encouragement, and inspiration to live a fulfilling life. (2 Timothy 3:16)

freedom is a choice.

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Timothy 1:15) because God “is patient, not wanting any to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). His redemption is available to anyone who seeks it because “all have sinned and are not good enough for God’s glory.” (Romans 3:23) But, every person can have restored fellowship with God through salvation for “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) Sanctification occurs at salvation, and we are to strive to “live holy and Godly lives as we look forward to the day of God” (2 Peter 3:11, 12) in a progressive lifelong process of drawing closer to God and becoming more like Christ.

you are gifted.

We each have “different kinds of gifts but the same Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12), God in his kindness gave each of us different gifts for the common good of everyone (1 Corinthians 12:7) and these gifts are available for our edification today. We have been “baptized by one Spirit into one body” (1 Corinthians 12:13) unifying the diversity of denominations, ethnicity, gender, and cultures, because we are “all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:29)

life is eternal.

There will be a resurrection of both the saved and the lost– the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the eternal punishment (Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15). Therefore, it is every believers responsibility to fulfill the great commission to “go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)
