WE BELIEVE IN

GOD

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has existed eternally in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God. Father, Son, and Spirit, the three who are one

Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14

JESUS

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. He was born to a virgin, and carried out many miraculous actions during his life. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

HOLY SPIRIT

He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right.
