Our Coure Beliefs

 

Our Core Beliefs

About The Bible
 

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, divinely inspired; that it  contains no errors in the original manuscripts and has been preserved  by God for us; that it is authoritative for this church and each of us  for every age.
 

About God
 

We believe that God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are one God.
We believe God created the universe by His Power and Word.
We believe that God is all knowing, all powerful, all loving and ever present.
 

About Jesus Christ
 

We believe Jesus Christ was sent by God the Father into the world to save sinners.
We believe that Jesus Christ was virgin born, sinless in life and mighty in words and deeds.
We believe Jesus was both God and man, that He was crucified for our  sins, and was bodily raised from the dead. He then ascended to His  Father's side where He is head of the church and intercedes for  believers.
We believe Jesus Christ is coming again personally, visibly and bodily to reign as Lord.
 

About The Holy Spirit
 

We believe the Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and has all the divine  characteristics. He indwells all believers, baptizes and seals them at  the moment of salvation. He fills them in response to confession of sin  and surrender to Him.
 

About Salvation
 

We believe that Jesus, through His death on the cross, provided  salvation for all. However, to receive salvation one must repent of sin  and trust Jesus Christ alone. The true believer is eternally secure and  cannot lose his salvation. He may, however, lose his joy by sin and  bring the loving discipline of the Father upon himself.
All who have received Christ will at death depart to be with Christ in  their spirits and at Christ's return receive a new body which will be  like His glorious body.
 

About the church
 

We believe a New Testament church is a local body of baptized believers  who have agreed together to worship Jesus Christ, edify the believers,  evangelize the lost and minister to others.
 

The church has two ordinances: Baptism and the Lord's Supper
 

Baptism symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life we have in Him
The Lord's Supper is a reminder of Christ's death and anticipates His Second Coming.
