What We Believe

We believe in the basic tenets of the Christian faith. Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and He is coming again in power and glory. God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. One God. The Bible is God’s Holy Word, and is completely true. You must repent and surrender your life to Jesus Christ as Lord to be born again, and receive the indwelling Holy Spirit who will help you overcome sin. We are saved by grace through faith alone in the work of Christ, who took our place on the cross of condemnation, shedding His precious blood in payment for our sins.

We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances of the church to be observed until the time of Christ’s return. They are not a means of salvation but are channels of God’s sanctifying grace and blessing to the faithful in Christ Jesus. Matthew26:26-29; 28:19; Romans 6:3-11; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34; 1 Peter 3:21.

Those who reject Jesus as Lord & Saviour will die in their sins and suffer eternal separation from God in Hell, but those of us who humble themselves and receive Christ are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and are blessed to receive the free gift of eternal life in Heaven, dwelling with GOD and serving Him forever. Alleluia!!!

The Prayer of Salvation

To receive eternal life and allow God the Holy Spirit to live inside of you, you must accept Jesus. Time flies and our life can end quickly, so don’t wait another day!

To receive Jesus into your life, say this prayer in your own words, and mean it with your whole heart: “Holy God, I truly believe that Jesus Christ is Your Son, and that He died for my sins, and He rose from the dead. I surrender to Jesus as Lord and Savior of my life. I repent of my sins by changing the direction of my life to You. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit to lead me and guide me forever. Thank you for giving me eternal life and saving me from eternal death!”

Now if you said that prayer with all sincerity, get into the Word of God — the Bible — and attend a good Bible-based church, grow in Christ and follow Him! Alleluia again!!!
