Beliefs and Practices

Some of Our Main Teachings

  • The Bible is the Word of God.
  • Everyone is sinful and falls short of meeting God’s criteria for eternal life. (Romans 3:23)
  • Sinfulness is more than bad actions; it is a condition of rebelliousness toward God that we are born with. (Psalm 51:5)
  • Jesus died on the cross to take our punishment, and now we can have forgiveness of sins and eternal life with God through faith in Jesus.
  • Baptism is the way we get connected to the benefits Jesus won on the cross.
  • As saved people, we are called by God to live as disciples of Jesus and lead others to be disciples of Jesus.
  • We reach out to the people of our community and world because we love them and want them to go to heaven. That’s our only motivation.
  • Jesus is the only way to be right with God and have eternal life. If there would be another way, he would not have been crucified.
