About Us

What We Believe

The Church of God's beliefs and doctrine are based entirely on the Word of God. The following are elements of what we believe:

  • The Bible - We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God (II Timothy 3:16).
  • Trinity - We believe God is one, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh (II Timothy 3:16). Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and Man (I Timothy 2:5). The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son and indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for godly living and service.
  • Sin - We believe that we have all sinned and come short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23) and that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
  • Salvation - Salvation is the gift of God and includes the forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 2:8-9) (II Timothy 2:15), the imputation of the righteousness of Jesus Christ, and eternal life are recieved by grace through faith, and are the gifts of God.
  • Being Saved - We believe Romans 10:9-11 that if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead - we shall be saved. We believe that saved people do not walk in sin, and therefore deny ungodliness and worldly lust (Titus 2:11).
  • Saved through Faith - We believe that we are justified by faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 teaches that by grace we are saved through faith; and not of ourselves; it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any should boast.
  • Holiness - We believe that God hates sin and everything about it. Instead, Gods wants us to be Holy as He is Holy. (Acts 5:32, Hebrew 12:14, Titus 2:11-12 I Peter 1:16). We are to present our bodies as a holy vessel back to God and not be conformed (or shaped) by the world.
  • Our Job - We believe that the purpose of the church is to witness concerning Jesus Christ according to the Scriptures and preach the gospel among nations (Matthew 28:19).
