Every Sunday, we gather for music, Scripture, and a message from the Bible intended to bring about transformation in our lives. We are, in effect, preparing ourselves to be ambassadors for Christ in the world. We sing of God’s grace and faithfulness, we seek the Lord in prayer as a church family, we worship Him through our offerings and we learn from God’s Word.
Prayer time and Bible study with God’s people, which will truly restore, encourage and give you hope.
The one living and true God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Righteous Ruler of the universe. He has revealed Himself in nature, and in the Scriptures as the trinity of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit: yet as one God, infinitely.
The "ONE AND ONLY BEGOTTON SON" crucified for the sins of the whole world. Christ is God in the flesh. In His Divine nature He is truly God and in His human nature truly man. HE IS NOW RISEN AND GLORIFIED AND ACTS AS MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD. No one can come to the Father except through Him.
The living spirit that comes to dwell in the heart of man upon conversion, convicting and convincing man of his sin, as well as opening man's understanding of the hidden truths within the Scripture. All of the attributes of God are ascribed to the Holy Spirit.
God used holy men to write the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments. It is without a shadow of doubt the inerrant, infallible words of God given for our profit and in instruction in right living.
God created man in a state of innocence, yet after being tempted by Satan, willfully disobeyed God, becoming a sinner and incurring God's judgement upon sin. All of Adam's descendants inherit his fallen nature and thus have a natural inclination to sin.
God exercises a wise and benevolent providence over all beings and things. He maintains the laws of nature and performs special acts, as the highest welfare of mankind and His created order of things require.
Man receives pardon and forgiveness for his sins when he admits to God that he is a sinner. In true Godly sorry man turns and trusts in the work of Christ as redemption for his sin. This acceptance of God's great salvation involved belief in Christ's death on the cross as man's substitute and the fact of God's raising Him from the dead as predicted. It is a salvation by grace alone and not of works.
It is God's will that all be saved, but since man has the power of choice, God saved only those who repent of their sin and believe in the work of Christ on the cross.
The human will is free and self-controlled, having power to yield to the influence of the truth and the Spirit, or to resist them and persevere.
