WHAT WE BELIEVE
- In essential beliefs - we have unity"...There is one Body and one Spirit...one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of all..." Eph. 4:4-6
- In non-essential beliefs - we have liberty..."Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters..." Rom. 14:1
- In all our beliefs - we show love"...If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains - but have no love, I amount to nothing at all." 1 Cor. 13:2
The Essentials We Believe
Salvation is God's free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith and obedience to Christ beginning with baptism.
