We believe:

In one God, consisting of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe he is all knowing, all powerful, and present everywhere. (Matthew 19:26, Mark 14:36, Revelation 4:8)
That Jesus is fully man and fully God, and that in His person He is the perfect expression of God’s love for us. (John 1:1)
That God desires a personal relationship with us, and that by His grace, through Jesus Christ, We are set free from the bondage of sin. (Ephesians 2:4-10)

We acknowledge:

We have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
That Jesus Christ is the Messiah and that when He died on the cross He bore the penalty for our sins. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
That Jesus rose on the third day, in victory over death, and ascended to Heaven to sit at the right hand of God the Father. (Romans 8:34, Psalm 16:10)

We accept:

Jesus Christ’s unconditional atonement for our sins, without price, without question. (Romans 3:23-26)

We will:

Obey the greatest commandment to love God with all my heart and all my soul and all my mind. And I will love my neighbor as I love myself. (Matthew 22:36-40)
Submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit and seek His guidance through the Bible – the Word of God.
Release our sins and burdens to Jesus, and allow Him to heal my heart.
Seek fellowship and worship with other believers. (1 John 1:5-7)
Obey Jesus’ command to “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” (Mark 16:15).

Prayer of Repentance
Jesus, I know that I have sinned and that you have died to forgive me of my sins. I believe, repent and confess you as Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Please come into my heart, and make me a new creation in you.  Amen.
