What We Believe

WE BELIEVE that the God of the Bible is the one true God, the creator of the universe.  He is unchanging and everlasting, and has revealed Himself to us in the form of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4;  Isaiah 43:10-11; Hebrews 13:8; Matthew 28:19)

WE BELIEVE that the whole Bible is the inspired word of God, infallible and without error in its original form.  The scripture is God’s revelation to us, and is the authority by which we should live our lives.  It should be interpreted with the original context in mind.  (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)

WE BELIEVE that Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) is the one and only Son of God, born of a virgin.  He is a man and yet fully God at the same time.  He lived a life without sin, and is the promised Messiah, Savior of the world through His death and resurrection. (Matthew 1:23; 1 Peter 2:22; 1 Corinthians 15:3)

WE BELIEVE that mankind was created good, in God’s image, but chose to sin, bringing physical and spiritual death upon himself.  Every person (except Yeshua the Messiah) has sinned.  Because of this, God sent Yeshua as the ultimate sacrifice for all of our sins.  Salvation from our sins is a gift to anyone who will receive it.  If we believe in Him, repent from our sins and turn toward Him, then we will have eternal life. We are only saved by grace, through faith, and the only way to have a relationship with God the Father is through his Son, Yeshua.  (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12-19; Romans 6:23; John 14:6)

WE BELIEVE that today Yeshua sits at the right hand of God.  Someday He will return in a physical and visible way, and will raise the dead (of which He is the “firstfruits”).  There will be judgment for all, and all whose names are found in the Book of Life will remain with him forever, where there will be a new heaven and a new earth. (Acts 1:9,11; Acts 2:33; 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 2 Peter 3:13; John 3:36; Revelation 20, 21)

WE BELIEVE that it is the responsibility and calling of every believer to submit to the teachings of our Savior Yeshua and live according to the instructions of our Creator.  Yeshua has sent us the Holy Spirit from the Father, to live within the believer to convict, teach, guide, sanctify and empower us to live and minister for Him. (John 14:26; John 16:5-15; 1 John 3:24; Romans 6; Romans 8:12-17)
