The Gospel defines everything
The word gospel means good news, we believe that good news is God’s grace invading the darkness of this world. God in his own divine way orchestrated salvation and hope to a sinful world through his perfect Son Jesus Christ, and his life, death and resurrection. Jesus came and did everything necessary to restore the relationship between sinful mankind and a perfect and holy God. He did this by offering his life as a substitutionary sacrifice to God for our sins. In doing this, Jesus satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and appeases His holy wrath. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. In order to have a restored relationship with God, thereby avoiding the wrath and judgment of God because of sin, one must trust and believe in the finished work of Jesus. In doing so, declaring and understanding that there is no other name by which men or women can be saved.
The Basis of our beliefs
Our beliefs are based on Jesus’ command to “‘love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (Matthew 22:37-39).
We’ve elaborated below to explain just what our mission statement of “Love God, Love Each Other, and Live On Mission” means for us. If you’d like a more in-depth explanation of our doctrinal beliefs, you may want to read The Baptist Faith & Message.
Live On Mission
We believe that God cares about every need of every person and that the Church, as Christ’s Body, is to show his love and care for every person. Every member of the Church is called to be a minister of the gospel through acts of loving service and a willingness to share the truth of the gospel with everyone at every opportunity.
John 13:34-35 | 1 Peter 3:15 | 1 Peter 4:8
We believe that the scope of God’s love is worldwide, and this church is committed to taking the gospel to the farthest and most unreached places of the world.
