What We Believe

  • Jesus is the Son of God.
    John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  • The Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin.
    Luke 1: 34-35 - Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

  • Jesus is the living God made flesh.
    1 Timothy 3:16 - And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

  • He faced the same issues we face today, but never gave into sin.
    Hebrews 4:15 - For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

  • He died unjustly accused and was raised by God three days later.
    1 Corinthians 15:4 - And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

  • There is salvation through no other than Christ Jesus
    Jesus said in John 14:6 - I am the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except by Me.

  • His death atoned (paid in full) for our sins.
    Hebrews 5:9 - And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
    Romans 3:24-25 - Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

What is salvation?

  • Because of Adam's sin, we are all born sinners.
    Romans 5:12 - Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

  • The penalty for that sin is eternal death.
    Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • There is a real hell, and the unsaved will receive eternal punishment, but the saved will receive eternal life.
    Matthew 25:46 - And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

  • God's desire is that we not perish in death, but that we come to know Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
    2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

  • God sent His Son to die for our sins.
    Romans 5:8 - But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

  • It is only by Jesus' righteousness that we are saved.
    Romans 5:19 - For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

  • There is nothing "good" that we can do to deserve salvation. It is all dependent on Christ. Living a "good" life is not what get's you into heaven.
    Ephesians 2:8-9 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

  • Salvation is God's free gift, and it comes though believing in Christ Jesus.
    Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

  • True salvation comes when you believe with all of your heart that Jesus is the Son of God and receive that He died for all of your sins.
    Romans 10:9-10 - [9] That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. [10] For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Jesus loves you!
