God is a Trinity
We believe and confess that God is One God yet, He is three Persons. The Father is God, the Son, Jesus Christ is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. The Father created the world and still preserves it. The Son, Jesus Christ redeemed the world through His death which paid the price for all sins and He rose from the dead on Easter Sunday to give us eternal life in Heaven. The Holy Spirit created out Faith and still preserves us in that sacred Faith.
The Holy BibleW
We believe and confess that the Bible is the Word of God. The Bible is inspired and inerrant. What do we mean by these words?
The Holy Bible
The Holy Bible is Inerrant–The Bible contains no errors. If there is a seeming error of contradiction it is not the Bibles fault nor Gods fault. Rather, it is
The Holy Bible is without error, truthful, and reliable in every detail. That is inerrancy.
Sin and Salvation
We believe and confess that all mankind is sinful. There is but one exception and that is Jesus Christ who came in the flesh to redeem us. Jesus is God and as such, lived the perfect and sinless life on earth. It was His perfection and sinlessness that qualified Him alone to suffer and die for our sins. Mankind was conceived and born in sin. King David said in Psalm 51:5. Yes, I was born guilty, and when my mother conceived me I was in sin. From the moment of conception, all human beings are sinful. The only way to have salvation is through Jesus Christ. We call the Gospel the way to that salvation.
The Gospel is comprised of two things:
The death of Jesus Christ forgives sins
Jesus died on the cross to forgive our sins. We could not pay the price for our sins, for the sinner cannot make restitution to the Father for the evil he has done. Jesus Christ died on the cross as payment for the sins of all mankind. His death was what the Father wanted in order to wipe the slate clean. However, only those who believe that Jesus Christ died to forgive their sins will be forgiven. If I broke my
The resurrection of Jesus Christ grants us eternal life in Heaven
Jesus did not remain dead. On Easter Sunday He came back to life again. Jesus is God and he can do whatever he chooses. Yet, Jesus was also Man. He is the first and only human being that ever raised Himself from the dead. Jesus once said, Because I live, you too will live. (John 14:19) If Jesus has the power to raise Himself from the dead, surely He has the power to raise YOU! However, only those who believe Jesus rose from the dead for them shall rise to live with Jesus in Heaven.
Faith is a simple childlike trust that Jesus Christ did what the Bible says He did. He was conceived in the body of the
We believe and confess that good works are the result of saving Faith and cannot bring about
We believe and confess that God created the world in six, 24 hour days. I was an engineer before I became a Pastor. I had to make many measurements and convert many measurements from inches into centimeters. I had to convert Fahrenheit into Celsius. The only measurement I never had to convert was time. Time always remained the same. Genesis 1:5 says, Evening came and then
We believe and confess that infants are to be baptized. If ever there was a sector of the population that Jesus loved, it was children. On one occasion, mothers were carrying their babies to Jesus so that He might touch them and bless them. Jesus disciples turned the mothers away thinking Jesus had no time for such insignificant babies. When Jesus saw what the disciples were doing He was furious. He said, Let the little children come to Me. Don’t keep them away. God’s kingdom belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, if you don’t receive God’s Kingdom like a little child, you will not get in it
We believe and confess that abortion is taking the life of a fellow human being. As stated above, King David said in Psalm 51:5. Yes, I was born guilty, and when my mother conceived me I was in sin. If we take God at His Word, we must then conclude that life begins at conception. The moment the sperm fertilizes the egg, a new human life is established and any act that takes that life is murder. Thus abortion is taking a human life.
Stem Cell Research
We believe and confess that stem cell research is forbidden by God when embryos are used to gather stem cells. The same reasoning is used as in the case of abortion. The human life growing in the embryo is just that, a human life. Taking of that life, even for research, is a sin against God.
