What we believe

Trinity

We believe in the "trinity" (the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit), which makes up one triune God. All are part of one God with separate roles. (1 John 5:7; John 10:30; John 1:1; 1 Pet. 1:2; Matt 28:19; John 14:26)


The Holy Bible

The Holy Bible is the infallible word of God, which gives us the gospel, wisdom, and guidance. The Bible is comprised of 66 books written by different men through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (2 Tim 3:16,17; Matt 24:35)


Sin

What is sin? Who has sinned? We believe that sin is the breaking of God's law. The Bible tells us that all of sinned against God, and God will judge our sins on the Day of Judgement. God created the law so that we can understand our need of salvation through his Son Jesus Christ. (Rom. 3:20,23,24; Rom. 6:23; Gal. 3:24)


Baptism

Getting baptized does not save you or wash away your sins as scripture tells us. Only believing in Jesus Christ can do that. Baptism is an outward show of faith that you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and savior. It's also a symbolism that you're born again, and a new creation in Christ. (Matt 28:19; Acts 8:36-38; Rom. 6:4)


Salvation

We believe that the only way to receive salvation is to accept the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, and through the shedding of his blood our sins are washed away once we believe in Jesus. Salvation is not based on works or through rituals. His sacrifice is a free gift for all people, and demonstrates his love and grace towards us. (John 14:6; Heb. 9:22; Rom. 5:8; Rom. 10:9,10,13; Eph. 2:8,9)


Lord's Supper / Communion

Jesus said do this in remembrance of me. The bread is his body which was broken for us, and the juice is blood which was shed for us. It was a commandment from Jesus to do this on a regular occasion. As a church body of believers we do this to remember his sacrifice for our salvation. This is a symbolic ceremony. The Lord's Supper doesn't purify sin. (Luke 22:19-20; John 6:35)
