What we Believe about...
God the Father created the universe and everything in it. He made us too... with a good purpose in mind; and because of His love for what He created, we can have a personal relationship with Him.
The Old and New Testaments were written by men who were inspired by God. It is His message to the world about how we fall short of His standards and goodness by nature and choice because of the sin in our lives that we inherited from Adam. It also tell us that there is only one way that God will forgive us of those sins.
Jesus Christ is the sinless Son of God through the miricle of the virgin birth. We believe that He died on the cross as the ultimate love sacrifice and act of grace to redeem us from the consequences of our sin, and we believe that He arose from the dead and ascended into Heaven to prepare a place for us.
The Bible tells us that no one can get into heaven by being "good". It also tells us that we can be saved for eternity only by the grace of God. He sent His son as the sacrifice to forgive our sins, and eternal life is a free gift to anyone who believes and trusts Jesus as their Savior. The Bible explains how you can be sure that you can have eternal life.
the Holy Spirit...
We believe in one God who reveals himslf to us as the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. His Spirit comes to live in every true believer to comfort and to help that person become and do all that God wants.
