God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, I Peter 1:2, II Corinthians 13:14
We believe man was created in the image of God, through disobedience he sinned and fell, and that the entire human race shares in man's lost and depraved nature.
Genesis 1:27, Genesis 3, Romans 5:19
We believe in eternal salvation of believers and the eternal separation from God for those who reject His Son. Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation. When you die, you will either spend eternity in Heaven or Hell. Eternal separation from God happens in Hell. Eternal union with God occurs in Heaven.

We believe that once you've accepted Jesus as your Savior, the next step is to be water baptized. Baptism is all about outwardly expressing that you have given your life to Jesus and decided to follow Him. If you have given your life to Christ and wish to be water baptized, you can register for the next Baptism Sunday here. If you are simply interested in learning more about being water baptized and when our next baptism will be held, please call us at the church office at (918) 423-3630 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God and that He is co-equal with the Father, and that Jesus took upon Himself the form of a man by means of the virgin birth. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again. We believe that the next great event of human history will be the personal return of Jesus Christ. This is the blessed hope for which all those who love Jesus Christ yearn. Though the time of Christ's return is a mystery known only to the Father Himself, we believe that it is as sure as Jesus' first coming was fact.
Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5; 14:10-30, Hebrews 4:14-15, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 1:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, I Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13, Matthew 13:32
We believe salvation is the gift of God by grace alone and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6; 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father. The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His guidance daily. We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is for all believers as a definite endowment of power for service.
II Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13; 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16, Ephesians 1:13, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:18, Acts 2:38
We believe in the direct inspiration of the scriptures and the authority of both the Old and New Testaments.The Bible is God's Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21, II Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119:105,160, Psalm 12:6, Proverbs 30:5
