What We Believe
THE BIBLE We believe the Bible really is the "word" of God. He didn't actually sit down and write it, but He inspired specific people to write down the things that He really wanted us to know; therefore, we consider it completely reliable. There is no other writing out there that was inspired by God in the same way. The Bible holds the unique, full, and final say on everything having to do with our faith and the way we live our lives. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
GOD There is only one true God who is eternal and in charge and in control of all things. Now, here's the mystery: God exists in three "persons": the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is what is known as the Trinity. (Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)
JESUS CHRIST The second person of the Trinity, the Son, is Jesus Christ. Even though His very nature is God, He came to earth and took on a human nature as well by a miraculous conception and a virgin birth. Now, this is crucial: Nobody is perfect. We have all done stuff that goes against what God wants us to do. The good news is that Jesus chose to take on the punishment that we deserved. He died in our place to pay for our wrong doings. Now, all we have to do is accept and believe in what Jesus did for us. That will allow us to be reunited with God. That's it. God made it simple. We don't earn God's forgiveness by doing good things. Jesus already paid the price. But that is not the end of the story: On the third day after He died, He came back to life and then went up to heaven. If we believe in Him, we too will have a new life and be able to live eternally in heaven. (John 1:1, 14; Ephesians 2:8-9)
THE HOLY SPIRIT The third person of the Trinity is the Holy Spirit. When we accept what Jesus did for us, the Holy Spirit comes and starts living inside of us. Having Him inside of us is actually a good thing. Also, He doesn't have to leave one person to be in another. He can actually live inside each one of us at the same time. So, why is this a good thing? The Holy Spirit empowers us to meet the challenges of life, gives us gifts that we can use to help other people, and comforts us in times of need. (John 14:15-17; 1 Corinthians 12:4-7)
Live Responsibly: I will be personally responsible for cultivating my relationship with Christ and for living in a manner that reflects well on Christ and his church (Ephesians 4:1).
Live Generously: I will give God the best of my time, talent, energy, gifts and the first-fruits (10%) of my financial resources (Mark 12:30 & Malachi 3:10).
Live Together: I will actively engage in weekly worship gatherings, groups, and service opportunities. (1 Corinthians 12 & Hebrews 10:22 – 25).
Live Openly: I will speak into the lives of others and allow others to speak truth into my life, facilitating the process of becoming the people we were created to be (Ephesians 4:15).
Live for Others: I will live out my faith in the context of intentional relationships, both with those inside and outside of the body of Christ (Philippians 2:1 – 4 & Matthew 28:18 – 20).
