We believe there is only one true and living God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other. Each Person, all of one essence and all having the same nature, perfections, and attributes, and is totally worthy of our worship and service.
(Deut 6:4; Matt 28:19; John 1:14, 10:30; 2 Cor 13:14)
We believe that God the Father is the eternal, unchanging all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise, all-loving, completely just and perfectly holy, sovereign Ruler and Sustainer of the universe. He is the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the Father of all true believers.
(Gen 1:1; Isa 40:21-28, 43:10-13, 46:8-11; John 1:12-13, 5:19-21, 17:1-5; Eph 4:6; Rom 8:14-16)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten eternal Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless, human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
(Isa 9:6, Matt 1:22, 23, John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Acts 1:9-11; Rom 1:3-4; Heb 4:14-15; 1 Cor 15:3-4; 1 Tim 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)
We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-existent with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is the chief agent in the regeneration, the chief convictor of sin, and the chief comforter of the believer. Simultaneously with salvation, the Holy Spirit imparts new life, baptizes the believer into the body of Christ (His church), permanently indwells the believer, and securely seals the believer unto the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit fills (directs and controls) those believers who are yielded to Him, enables believers to bear fruit, and empowers believers to live a life free from the dominion of sin. We also believe that the Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to believers for the purpose of edifying the church in accordance with the teachings of Scripture.
(John 16:7-11; Rom 8:5-13; 12:3-8; 1 Cor. 6:19; 12:13; 13:8; 14:22; Gal 5:16-17, 22-23; Eph 1:13-14, 4:30;
1 Pet 4:10-11)
If you want to receive salvation (accept Jesus Christ in your life):
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.” (Acts 3:19)
If you’ve never asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart;
you can pause and ask Him now: (Acts 3:19)
Dear Lord, I admit (confess) that I am a sinner, I am truly sorry for my sins-forgive me. I repent of all my sins; come into my heart and be Lord of my life. I want to give myself to You. In Jesus name, I pray. AMEN!
The Bible tells us: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13)
N – Draw Near To God
“The Lord is near to all who call on Him.” (Psalm 145:18)
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:5)
E – Experience God’s Promises
…He will never leave you. (Hebrews 13:5)
…Abundant life (John 10:10)
…He will supply your needs – not always your wants. (Phillipians 4:19)
X – Exchange Thoughts
Pray, Pray & Pray. (I Thessalonians 5:17 & I Timothy 2:8)
Pray for one another. (James 5:16)
This is your way of communicating with your Heavenly Father. Start your day & end your day with prayer!
T – Trust In The Lord
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5, Psalms 37:3 & Psalms 118:8)
Begin to let go of your way and try God’s way. Let God direct your path.
