We believe people were created perfect and free. They were set in a beautiful garden, but were seduced and broke God’s spoken word to them. This tendency was grafted into human beings, destroying the gift of life, causing a debt of punishment and dividing them from the love of God. In this state there was no hope and we would have perished. Then God’s love for the people He had created caused Him to send His Son to us. His Name is Jesus.
Jesus was a real person who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed amazing miracles and taught truth. Jesus was innocent yet condemned; giving His life to restore all that was lost. We can now find forgiveness in the belief that Jesus was sent by God to pay the debt our sins against God incurred. As new creatures in God, a joyful, peaceful and fulfilling life awaits us in God’s church. We believe the ministry Jesus had on the earth is available to His church through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus will return for His people, but if we depart this earth before then, we know we will find our place in heaven with God. We believe in a final day of judgment where we will all stand before God to be accountable for our deeds on the earth.
