Discover the Truth

A life in Christ is a life based on truth, because He is the truth. (John 14:6) Because of this, we have certain truths that we hold as absolutely fundamental to life in Christ. Without them it is impossible to know Him as He designed.

The Bible

“The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.”*

God

God is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, also known as The Trinity. They are three and one simultaneously.

Why We Believe It

Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14

Salvation

Salvation occurs when a person gives control of their life to Jesus Christ. At the moment a person gives their life to Christ, the Bible teaches that person is “reborn” as a child of God. We are guaranteed eternal life solely through the grace of Christ and the sealing of the Holy Spirit.

Why We Believe It

John 3:1-6; 10:28-29, Romans 3:20-23; 5:12-13, 1 Corinthians 15:50, 2 Corinthians 5:17-21, Galatians 2:21, Ephesians 2:1-3, Titus 3:4-7, Hebrews 10:10

Spiritual Growth

Spiritual growth is a process that is only achieved through a genuine intimate relationship with Christ. As we walk in the Spirit in submission and connection to Christ and His leadership in our life, it produces fruit that is seen as spiritual maturity. This is a life-long process, a journey led by the working of the Holy Spirit in a person’s life and accelerated by genuine spiritual community with other believers and a person’s personal commitment to learn and apply the Word of God in their life. The result of this process affects every aspect of life.

Why We Believe It

Galatians 5, John 15, Romans 6:19; 12:2, Ephesians 2:10; 3:14-19; 4:11-16; 5:17-21; 6:10-18

The Church

The Church is not a community organization for Christians but a radical movement of followers of Christ who are united together to connect each other and the world to the person and cause of Christ!
