ABOUT

What We Believe

According to Scripture ...

1. The Bible is God-breathed. It is the only Word of God and is without error.

2. There is only one God. He always has and He always will exist in three equal parts: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. Jesus Christ is God. He is the only way to salvation from the penalty of sin.

4. Jesus was a sinless man who died for the sins of the world. After His resurrection, He physically ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father. He did this to reconnect all believers with God.

5. People are saved through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by God’s grace. Salvation is a free gift and cannot be earned.

6. A person is saved at the moment he or she believes that Jesus is God and rests in the fact that Jesus died and was raised from the dead for the redemption of all of his or her sins. Salvation cannot be lost.

7. Our comfort lies in the fact that someday all who are saved, whether dead or alive, will be caught up together into the clouds in our transformed, incorruptible bodies to be with Jesus for eternity.

8. After this event, known as the Rapture, all Christians will appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ to receive a reward or suffer loss. During this time, all non-believers will remain on the earth to endure the seven years of the Tribulation.

9. After the Tribulation period, during which Satan will rule the earth, Jesus will return and imprison Satan for 1,000 years. Jesus will then take His rightful place as ruler of the earth for the Millennium. At this time, all Christians who received a reward at the Judgment Seat will rule and reign with the Lord Jesus Christ.

10. After the Millennium, non-believers will face judgment at the Great White Throne. Satan and his demons will be found guilty and cast into the Lake of Fire, where they will spend eternity. Heaven and earth will then be destroyed, and a new heaven and earth created. All who belong to Jesus will spend eternity in the Kingdom of the Father.
