Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

Hebrews 9:28

What is the Gospel?

The gospel is the good news of God’s grace invading the darkness of this world. It is the grand narrative of creation, fall, redemption and consummation ordained by God and orchestrated through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Christ’s crucifixion is the heart of the gospel. His resurrection is the power of the gospel. His ascension is the glory of the gospel.

Christ’s death is a substitutionary and propitiatory sacrifice to God for our sins. It satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and appeases His holy wrath. It also demonstrates His mysterious love and reveals His amazing grace. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. There is no other name by which men can be saved. At the heart of all sound doctrine is the cross of Jesus Christ and the infinite privilege that redeemed sinners have in glorifying God because of what He has accomplished. Therefore, we want all that takes place in our hearts, churches and ministries to proceed from and be related to the gospel.

What We Believe

WE BELIEVE

that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: The
Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created
all, upholds all and governs all.

WE BELIEVE

that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully
inspired without error in the original manuscripts and the infallible rule of faith and practice.

WE BELIEVE

in God The Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom,
power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears
and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through
Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE

in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We
believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning
death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and
His personal, visible return to earth.

WE BELIEVE

in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict
the world of sin, righteousness and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify and empower
for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in
Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. We believe in the present
ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit.

WE BELIEVE

that all people are sinners by nature and choice and therefore, are under
condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and
confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy
Spirit, empowering them for service.

WE BELIEVE

in the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head
and all regenerated persons are members.

WE BELIEVE

that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church:
1) water baptism
2) the Lord’s Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion
open to all believers.

WE BELIEVE

in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His
kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the
righteous and the endless suffering of the wicked.
