Our Statement of Belief
||Belief in Deity|
We believe in God - incorporeal, omnipresent spirit--a Trinity of the Father
(God), the Son (Christ), and the Holy Spirit that comprises one God Almighty.
We believe in Jesus Christ who is God's only incarnation. He is the Son of God
and God, both fully divine and fully human, part of the Trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who comprises
one God Almighty.
Origin of Universe and Life
We believe that the biblical book of Genesis is inerrant. God created
the universe and all life forms from nothing in less than 7 days.
We believe that saved souls experience the bliss of heaven and unsaved souls the torture
of hell. On Judgment Day, Jesus Christ will resurrect the dead, reunite body and soul, and judge each for eternity in heaven
or in hell.
We believe the original sin of Adam and Eve caused all to inherit sinfulness. The work and
influence of Satan prevail among the unsaved and/or those who lack complete faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
We believe that Salvation is granted by the grace of God alone, through faith in Jesus Christ
alone as Lord and Savior--not through "works" such as moral behavior, good deeds, and generally not through sacraments. We believe
that once saved, or born again, always saved. We regard baptism, when performed, as a practice for adult believers, rather
than infants/children, as it is not considered a sacrament for salvation but an act of commitment to the fellowship.
We believe that some suffering is caused by the inheritance of mortality originating
from Adam and Eve's disobedience to God, which includes vulnerability to illness and disease. Also, Satan rules the earth,
causing pain and suffering. We also believe that suffering is God's design to test, teach, or strengthen belief
in Him; the greater the suffering of innocent believers, the greater will be their reward after life.
