“Although most people own a Bible and know some of its content, our research found that most Americans have little idea how to integrate core biblical principles to form a unified and meaningful response to the challenges and opportunities of life.” – George Barna
God has revealed himself
in nature (Rm 1:20) and in His written Word (2 Tim 3.16).  We believe the Bible to be divinely inspired, inerrant in its original languages, and the final authority on all matters.  God has eternally existed in three persons (Father, Son, and Spirit).  God chose to make mankind in His image (Gen 1:26).  He loved Adam and Eve by placing him in a garden, giving him a job, and providing a wife.  Yet Adam did not reciprocate God’s love but joined the rebellion against God (Gen 3:6).
God’s promises never fail; both for our good and for our punishment.  He promised Adam that if he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil he would die (Gen 2
:17), and die he did.  Death spread to all mankind (Rm 5:12).  Generation to generation the problem is the same:  We are all born spiritually dead and guilty before God.  Our bodies age, break down, and die.  Without the great love of God (John 3:16) all would be hopeless.  There is nothing we can do to remove our guilt before God.  All of us have done what God clearly says is wrong.  We have all failed to do what God says is right (Rm 3:23).
But even though death entered the world through Adam, life has come to us through Jesus Christ (Rm 5:18).  That life, which is eternal, is God’s unmerited gift to all of us.
This is the good news that God shouts to the whole of mankind.  To receive the gift of salvation God offers us all that is needed is to repent (admit and turn from our sinful lives) and believe in Jesus Christ (Mark 1:15; Acts 20:21).  To all who have received Christ God gave the right to become his children (John 1:12).
All who believe in Jesus receive the Holy Spirit.  The Spirit regenerates, changes, and empowers all who believe in Jesus Christ, baptizing them at the moment of faith into the Church.  He permanently indwells believers, beginning at conversion, and gives them spiritual gifts as he determines (1 Cor 12.4-13).  The Spirit-filled Christian is yielded to and empowered by the Holy Spirit to do the work of Christ and to manifest the character of Christ through the fruit of the Spirit.  (John 3.8. 7.37-39, 14.12, 16-17, 26, 16.7-11; Romans 8.1-13, 26-27; Galatians 5.22-23; Ephesians 1.13-14, 5.18)
Every Christian in every place and time is part of the Church.  The Church is represented by local gatherings of Christians who gather to love God and each other.  We commit ourselves to worship, prayer, service, and to evangelism.  As we remain faithful to the Word of God, we are a pillar of truth and a light to a lost world.
The whole Church awaits the day when Christ will return personally and visibly to establish his kingdom.  “Amen, come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20).
