I believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and deserves to have authority over my life.
2 Timothy 3:16,17: All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.
I believe in the reality of sin in my life and in the lives of all people, my sinfulness separates me from God, and from others.
Romans 3:23: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Salvation by Grace
I believe a right relationship with God comes only as a gift given by his grace and received through faith in Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2:8,9: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast.
I believe all people are loved by God and in need of Jesus Christ as their Savior.
John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
I believe Christ calls me to be continually transformed into his likeness by cooperating with the work of the Holy Spirit in my life.
Phillipians 2:12-13: Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
I believe the God of the bible is the only true God – Father, Son and Holy Sprit – one God in three persons.
2 Corinthians 13:14: May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
I believe everything I am and everything I have belongs to God. I am temporarily entrusted with them on his behalf.
1 Timothy 6:17-18: Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
I believe the church is God’s primary way to accomplish His purposes on earth today.
Matthew 18:20: For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.
