Statement of Faith 

 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative Word of God.

We believe God is eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ,

We believe in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles,

We believe in his atoning death through his shed blood, and in his bodily resurrection,

We believe in his personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost.  The saved to eternal peace, the lost to eternal punishment.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.

We believe that Israel is God's chosen land.

We believe that the Jew is God's chosen people.

We believe that Jerusalem will one day be the capitol of the world.

 

 

 

 

 

A Step of Faith 

 

Jesus loves you and wants to have personal relationship with you.  In your personal opinion, what do you understand it takes for a person to get to heaven and have eternal life?  Here is how the Bible answers this question.  It is answered in one word and that word is FAITH.

 

F - is for FORGIVENESS

Everyone has sinned and needs God's forgiveness.  Romans 3:23, 'All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God'.

God's forgiveness is in Jesus only. Ephesians 1:7, 'We have redemption in Him through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the rihches of His Grace.

 

A - is for AVAILABLE

God's forgiveness is available for all.  John 3:16; 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believed in Him should not perish but have everlasting life'.

God's forgiveness is available but not automattic.  Matthew 7:21;  'Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of Heaven'.

 

I is for IMPOSSIBLE

According to the Bible, it is impossible to get to heaven on our own.  Ephesians 2:8-9; 'You are saved by Grace thru faith, and this is not from yourselves;  It's God's gift  - not from works, so that no one can boast'.

 

T is for TURN

If you were going down the road and someone asked you to turn,what would he or she be asking you to do? (Change direction).  To TURN in this incident means to repent.  Turn away from sin and self.   Luke 13:3;  'Unless you repent you will all perish as well !'

Turn to Jesus alone as your Savior and Lord.  John 14:6;  'I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but through me.'

Here is the greatest news of all.  Romans 10:9-10;  If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth resulting in salvation.

What happens if a person is willing to repent of thier sins and confess Christ?

 

H is for HEAVEN

Heaven is a place where we can live with God forever.  John 14:3; 'If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself, so that where I am you may be also.

H can also stand for HOW.

How can a person have God's forgiveness, eternal life and heaven?  By trusting Jesus as your Savior and Lord.  You can do this right now by praying and asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins and inviting Jesus into your heart.
