“The hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.”

FROM LOVE AND FOR LOVE
The life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
God has forever existed as three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He created everything out of nothing.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son and equal to the Father. He has always existed, and is both truly God and truly man. He lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice to die on the cross for the sins of mankind. He was buried and three days later rose from the grave. He ascended to Heaven and will return to earth to reign as King.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is a full and equal member of the Trinity. He works in the world to help people understand their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives in every Christian believer, and provides the power for our life and growth in Christ.
We believe that the Bible, composed of the 66 books of the Old and New Testament, is the inspired word of God. It originated with Him and was given through the instrumentality of chosen humans. Scripture thus speaks with the authority of God and reflects the backgrounds, styles, and vocabularies of its human authors. We hold that the Scriptures are infallible and inerrant in the original manuscripts. They are the unique, full, and final authority on all matters of faith and practice, and there are no other writings similarly inspired by God.
Humankind was created God’s image, with the ability to choose good or evil. We disobeyed and chose evil, and in this sin have become us separated from God. Our relationship with Him can only be restored through Jesus Christ.
The salvation of mankind is wholly a work of God’s free grace, not the result, in whole or in part of human works or goodness, and must be personally appropriated by repentance and faith in who Jesus is and what Jesus did. Romans 3:23; Romans 3:10-18; Romans 6:23; Romans 5:8; Romans 10:9; Romans 10:13; Romans 5:1; Romans 8:1; Romans 8:38-39;
Baptism is for those who trust in who Jesus is and what Jesus did, and follow Him as their Lord. In Romans 6:1-11, the apostle Paul explains how baptism identifies the believer with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Going under water pictures Christ’s death. Coming out of the water illustrates his resurrection.
The Church is made up of all believers in Jesus Christ, through all time, and is called Christ’s body. Jesus is the head of the Church. The purpose of the church is to worship and live in fellowship with the triune God, and to spread his kingdom through the proclamation of the gospel.
Death seals the eternal destiny of each person. For all humankind, there will be a resurrection of the body and a judgment that will determine the fate of each individual. Unbelievers will be separated from God into condemnation. God’s judgment will reveal His justice in consigning them to the eternal consequence of their rejection of Him. Believers will be received into the gracious reward of eternal fellowship with God.
ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST
God, in His own time and in His own way will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly to earth. The dead will be raised and Christ will judge all men in righteousness.
