Our Beliefs on Christianity in General -

We believe Christianity is the only religion which provides mankind with full access to God. The Judeo-Christian God is the only living God.  All other God's are idols.  God originally established Judaism with Abraham the Hebrew and his descendants. Eventually God blessed all people of the earth through Abraham's seed, Jesus Christ. When a person accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior they are born again. This means that the person's spirit is now born of God, and they literally are born again into God's family. As born-again Christians we are the sons and daughters of God. God loves all people, but Jesus only gives His believers the power to become the children of God. Only Christians have full access to the Spirit of God, which lives in them along with their reborn spirit. No man comes to God but by Jesus.

Our Beliefs on Salvation -

We believe that all people will spend eternity with either God or the devil. All people are born in sin because of the sin of the first human, Adam. Regardless of that fact, no person has lived without once lying, stealing, hating, or breaking another one of God's laws.  We should all die and spend eternity in hell, because the wages of sin is death. But God so loved the world, that He put Himself in human form in His Son Jesus Christ, and He came to Earth. Jesus lived the only life in history that conformed perfectly to God's laws. He then went to the cross and allowed Himself to be murdered unjustly. But this was all part of God's plan. Jesus knew He had to die so that He could sacrifice Himself for our sins.  Jesus took our sin and gave us His righteousness, to save us from our sins. After His physical death He went to hell and took the keys to hell and death. God then raised Him from the dead. He returned to earth for a while, and now He sits on the right hand of God, ever living to work for our behalf. If one confesses with their mouth that Jesus is their Lord, and believes in their heart that God raised Him from the dead, then that person receives salvation. That person receives righteousness and that person will spend eternity in paradise with God.

Scripture references in order of appearance in the paragraph above - Revelation 21 and 22, Romans 5:12, Romans 3:10, Romans 6:23, John 3:16 and 2 Corinthians 5:19, 2 Corinthians 5:21, John 10:18, Revelation 13:8, Hebrews 10:12-14, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Revelation 1:18, Luke 24 and John 20, Hebrews 7:25, Romans 10:9,10, Revelation 21 and 22.

Our Beliefs on Holiness -

We believe that without holiness no man shall see God. The Hebrews were given laws by God that governed most aspects of their lives. No man but Jesus perfectly obeyed all these laws. Those who accept Jesus not only receive salvation, but also divine ability to live and abide perfectly by the laws of God. The Holy Spirit empowers Christians to fulfill all the commandments of God. We are now empowered to be Holy as our Father in Heaven is Holy. We believe holiness means having one's heart and actions in line with God's will.  God gives us His Word so that we can know His will and His commandments.  God gives us His Spirit which empowers us to understand His Word and hear His voice.  God pours His love into our hearts, for all the commandments of God really involve love, both for God and mankind.  God gives us everything we need to live holy and without blame before Him.  Jesus said that those who love Him keep His commandments.  All who truly love God will do what He says and live Holy before Him.  Anything that transgresses God's laws is sin.  All sin is wrong.  We are empowered to live without sin.  This should be our goal.
