Our Beliefs

QUESTIONS…we all have them...

About GOD

There is only one true God – the Triune God –who exists in three separate but equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God the Father is our maker and the creator of all things.

The Son is Jesus Christ, who came to earth as the perfect being between God and humanity.

The Holy Spirit calls us to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior. He is the whisper in our heart’s ear.

About Sin

We all fall short of God’s expectations because we are all born sinful. Sin can be summed up as all the things we say, think, do, and don’t do, that fall outside of God’s holy will for our lives and end up separating us from God. Jesus Christ took our sin upon Himself and died on the cross, on our behalf.

When we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, He bears our sin and gives us His forgiveness.

About the BIBLE
