TRUE LOVE, EXCITEMENT & LIFE!
Although written by man, we believe that the Holy Spirit inspired the bible and it is the infallible Word of God himself to all of his children. The Holy Scriptures are everlasting; therefore being our only rule of faith, doctrine and conduct. 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
God manifested in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Hebrews 1:8; John 10:13; Matthew 28:18-20
He is the Creator of all the universe and life. Alpha and Omega, the great I AM, He who is the Holy of Holies. He is eternity. Exodus 3:14; Leviticus 11:44-45; Numbers 23:19; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; Acts 17:28
Jesus Christ is the Redeemer of our sins and mankind’s main intercessor who sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven. 1 Timothy 3:16; Phil 2:9-10; John 3:16; Romans 8:34
God’s gift to man after the resurrection of Jesus Christ on earth. The Holy Spirit is our Comforter and Counselor. He convicts us of our sins, is righteous, and makes us more like Christ. 2 Corinthians 3:14-18; Matthew 3:16-17; John 16:7-8; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17
Jesus is the son of God and the guarantor of your place in eternity! He suffered a painful and agonizing death on the cross of Calvary so that today we can experience forgiveness, healing, and restoration. The key element is that He ROSE from the dead on the third day.
When we receive Jesus in our hearts, He frees us from all bondage of sin. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Once you acknowledge Jesus as your Lord and Savior and invite Him into your heart, your new life in Christ Jesus begins! Your sins have been forgiven and you are a new creation in Him. You are able to move forward confidently knowing that you’re not alone in this journey. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
We cannot save ourselves through religious works or good merits. Through faith in the grace of God and the complete work of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary is what purifies us from our sins. Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 6:3-4; John 3:16
Baptism is a public announcement that we are a new creation in Christ Jesus. When you are baptized it is your proclamation that Jesus is your everything and are one with Him! The act of being baptized symbolizes your identification with Christ in three areas: His death (you are immersed in the water); His burial (being under the water); and lastly but most significant, His resurrection (when you come out of the water). The Bible declares in Romans 6:3-4, “Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” The Bible shows us in Acts 2:38, “Peter replied, repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The church is the heart of Jesus Christ. We are ambassadors of who He is on earth. Comprised of believers committed to following Christ in love, unity, prayer, and fellowship; the church practices the teachings of Jesus Christ and obeys all of His commandments. The church is truly the bride of Christ whom captures his heart every day. 2 Corinthians 5:20; Ephesians 5:25-27; Revelation 21:2, 9-11; 2 Corinthians 11:2-3; Hosea 2:19-20 [God speaking to His people as the bride]
