    We hold the following statements to be true:

 

·        We believe that all of us are sinners and have fallen short of the glory of God.

This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
~Romans 3:22-24 NIV~

·        We believe that Jesus was God’s only son.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
~John 3:17-18 NIV~

·        We believe that Jesus existed with God from the beginning.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
~John 1:1-2 NIV~

·        We believe in spite of what we are, God wants to have a relationship with us.

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.
~John 3:16 NIV~

·        We believe that the only way to the Father is through his Son.

 

Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going,

so how can we know the way?"
Jesus answered," I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me."
~John 14: 5-6 NIV~

 

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven
given to men by which we must be saved."
~Acts 4:12 NIV~

 

·        We believe that Jesus came to make us right with God.

One man sinned, and death ruled because of his sin. But we are even more sure of what will happen because of what the one man, Jesus Christ, has done. Those who receive the rich supply of God's grace will rule with Christ in his kingdom. They have received God's gift and have been made right with him. One man's sin brought guilt to all people. So also one right act made all people right with God. And all who are right with God will live. Many people were made sinners because one man did not obey. But one man did obey. That is why many people will be made right with God.
~Romans 5:17-79 NIV~

·        We believe through Jesus Christ, we have a direct mediator with the Father, acceptance by the Father, and the promise (from Christ) of eternal life with the Father in the place we call Heaven.

Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.
~Matthew 10: 32-33 NIV~

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
~John 60:51 NIV~

Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.
~2 Corinthians 5:1 NIV~

·        We believe in the following six facts concerning Jesus:

1.    The virgin birth of Jesus:

In the sixth month after Elizabeth had become pregnant, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee. He was sent to a virgin. The girl was engaged to a man named Joseph. He came from the family line of David. The virgin's name was Mary.
The angel greeted her and said, "The Lord has given you special favor. He is with you." Mary was very upset because of his words. She wondered what kind of greeting this could be. But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary. God is very pleased with you. You will become pregnant and give birth to a son. You must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High God. The Lord God will make him a king like his father David of long ago. He will rule forever over his people, who came from Jacob's family. His kingdom will never end."
"How can this happen?" Mary asked the angel. "I am a virgin."
The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come to you. The power of the Most High God will cover you. So the holy one that is born will be called the Son of God.
~Luke 1: 26-35 NIV~

2. The sinless life of Jesus:

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
~Hebrews 4: 14-16 NIV~

3. That Jesus died for our sins:

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
~Romans 5: 6-8 NIV~

4. That Jesus was victorious over death:

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
~1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 NIV~

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
~1 Corinthians 15:20-22 NIV~

5. That Jesus ascended back to the Father:

I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.
~John 16: 28 NIV~

After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
~Acts 1: 9-11 NIV~

6. That Jesus will bridge the gap between the sin of man and the perfect holiness of the father for those who accept him as savior and ask him to be Lord of their lives.

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.
~John 3:16 NIV~

·        We believe this salvation relationship is a gift from God. It is based on our faith in Christ to save us. This gift is through God’s grace, based on his mercy toward us and not on anything we might do.

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.
~Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV~

·        We believe that Jesus wanted us to have a vision that includes all nations (in Greek “pas ethnos”) and all ethnic groups when we share his message of salvation and obedience. We understand this is a command from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to spread the gospel to all nations and all ethnic groups.

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
~Matthew 28: 18-20 NIV~

He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
~Mark 16: 15-16~

and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
~Luke 24:47 NIV~

Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me,
I am sending you."
~John 20:21 NIV~

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem,
and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
~Acts:1:8 NIV~

·        We believe that it is the desire of Jesus that we should equip other believers so that they will grow to a point where they also share the Gospel message with others. In spreading the Gospel this way, we honor the great commission of Christ to reach the entire world with the Gospel message and to make disciples as he commanded.

 

And the things you have heard me say n the presence of many witnesses
entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.
~2 Timothy 2:2 NIV~

 

·        We believe our vision must be to build World-Visionary - World-Impacting - Reproducing Disciples.

Where there is no vision, the people perish.
~Proverbs 29:18 KJV~

For God so loved the world,
~John 3:16 NIV~

and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached
in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
~Luke 24:47 NIV~

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
~Acts:1:8 NIV~
