                         and Evangelistic Outreach
We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s divine Son (John 1:1, 14; Colossians 1:16-17; Galatians 4:4). We believe in His incarnation (John 1:1, 14; Luke 2:1-20; Philippians 2:7-8) and virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:16, 22-23; Galatians 4:4); that He is eternal in His existence (Colossians 1:15-18), yet at the time of His incarnation was entirely God and entirely man: one person with two distinct natures (Matthew 3:17; John 1:1-14; Romans 1:3-4); that He never sinned (Hebrews 4:15); and that He shed His blood vicariously (Isaiah 53; 1 Peter 2:23-35) for mankind (John 8:46; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:22). He died, was buried and arose bodily the third day from the grave (1 Corinthians 15:3-4), ascending back to heaven forty days after the resurrection (Luke 24:50-51). He currently makes intercession for believers (Hebrews 4:14; 7:24-25) and is the Head of the Church (Colossians 1:18-19). He will physically return for His own at the rapture (1Thessalonians 4:15-17; Acts 1:11) and for unbelievers in judgment at His Second Coming (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).
