Jesus is the Center

Our Beliefs

Though we are committed to making whatever changes are necessary so we remain effective in our mission, we are firmly committed to the Bible as our final authority and hold to a historical theological set of beliefs.

Statement of Faith

  1. About God. God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1,26,273:22Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:191 Peter 1:22 Corinthians 13:14)
  2. About Man. Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates man from God. (Genesis 1:27Psalm 8:3-6Isaiah 53:6aRomans 3:23Isaiah 59:12)
  3. About Eternity. Man was created to exist forever. He will exist eternally in union with God through forgiveness and salvation or eternally separated from God by sin. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. (John 3:16John 2:25John 5:11-13Romans 6:23Revelation 20:151 John 5:11-12Matthew 25:31-46)
  4. About Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He physically rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords. (Matthew 1:22,23Isaiah 9:6John 1:1-514:10-30Hebrews 4:14,151 Corinthians 15:3,4Romans 1:3,4Acts 1:9-111 Timothy 6:14,15Titus 2:13)
  5. About Salvation. Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 6:23Ephesians 2:8,9John 14:61:12Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26Romans 5:1)
  6. About Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. (2 Corinthians 3:17John 16:7-1314:16,17Acts 1:81 Corinthians 2:123:16Ephesians 1:13Galatians 5:25Ephesians 5:1)
  7. About the Bible. The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. (2 Timothy 3:162 Peter 1:20212 Timothy 1:13Psalm 119:105,16012:6Proverbs 30:5)
