We believe that God is the Creator of the Universe and that He desires to have a relationship with every person on earth.
We believe that sin has separated us from God but that He is not willing that we suffer hell.
We believe that God offered Jesus, His only Son, as the sacrifice for our sins and that by accepting Him as Savior we will be saved and gain an eternal relationship with God.
We believe that the process of conversion involves several different things as spelled out in scripture. When we believe (John 3:16), repent of our sins (Acts 2:38), confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9), and are baptized (immersed) into Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38), we have the promise of salvation. These are not works done by man, but they are the means by which we access the blood of Christ according to His Word.
We believe that each person who comes to Christ receives the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38), Who helps them to grow in that relationship. This requires the study of His Word, prayer and fellowship with other believers. We want each person to grow to maturity in Christ. We hope that as each person grows, we can equip them to share their faith with their friends and family and lead them into this wonderful relationship with Christ.
A Plea For Restoration:
God created His Church over 2000 years ago. That first church was awesome. There was love and compassion for one another. There was a desire to reach out to their families, neighbors, co-workers and friends with the message that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He died for them. They were committed to the Apostle’s teaching. They met together in each others homes (Small Groups) and they would come together at the temple to have a time of worship. They were not divided by denominational names or by creeds. They had everything in common even though they had many differences.
They had discovered that in Christ they were one body. They put their trust and faith in Jesus. (Read the book of Acts to discover more.)
Over time, that first church has almost been forgotten. Slowly, over time, the face of the church changed. Now people are no longer known simply as Christian, but they are divided by other names.
We desire to be simply Christians. We desire to simply follow the Scriptures, which we believe to be the Word of God. We desire to follow the pattern of that first Church!
