Our Mission

To carry out the Great Comission

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Matthew 28:19 ESV

Our Purpose on this earth is to glorify God by sharing the gospel and bring the lost into reconciliation thru Christ.

WHAT WE BELIEVE 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16‭-‬17 ESV


T. Total depravity- total inability, original. sin.
* man is evil (Mark 7:21-23)
* slaves to sin (Romans 6:20)
* does not seek God (Romans 3:10-12)
* cannot understand spiritual things.
(1cor 2:14)
* man is at enmity with God.
(Ephesians 2:15)
* child of wrath (Ephesians 2:3)

In light of scripture revealing man's true nature being completely lost, how can anyone choose to desire God.

U. Unconditional election- God does not
Base election on anything He sees in
us. He chooses us according to his
will. (Ephesians 1:4-8, Romans 9:11)
He does not look to the future to see
who will pick him. Some are elect and
some are not. (Romans 9:15,21)
Romans 8:29-30, God predeterminedl
that certain individuals would be
conformed to the likeness of His Son,
be called, justified, and glorified.
Essentially, God predetermines that
certain individuals will be saved.
Numerous scriptures refer to believers
in Christ being chosen (Matthew
24:22, 31; Mark 13:20, 27; Romans
8:33, 9:11, 11:5-7, 28; Ephesians
1:11; Colossians 3:12; 1 Thessalonians
1:4; 1 Timothy 5:21; 2 Timothy
2:10; Titus 1:1; 1 Peter 1:1-2, 2:9; Peter
1:10). Predestination is the biblical
doctrine that God in His sovereignty
chooses certain individuals to be saved.
"predestined" in the Scriptures
referenced above are from the Greek
word proorizo, which carries the
meaning of "determine beforehand,"
"ordain," "to decide upon ahead of time."
So, predestination is God determining
certain things to occur ahead of time. 

L. Limited atonement- Jesus died for the
elect, although his death was sufficient
for all, it was not efficacious for all.
Jesus died for many....not all. (Matt
26:28) Christ died for his sheep.
(John 10:11,15) not the goats (Matt
25:32-33)
Jesus intercede for those given to him,
not the entire world. (John 17:9)
Acts 20:28 and Ephesians 5:25-27 state
The church (not all people) was
purchased by Christ.
Isaiah 53.12 states Christ bore the sins
Of many, it doesn't say all.

I. Irresistible grace- when God calls his
elect, they cannot resist!!
Romans 9:16 it is not of him that wills
or runs, but of God who shows mercy.
Philippians 2:12-13 God works on the
salvation of the individual.
John 6:28-29 faith is a work of God.
Acts 13:48 God appoint people to
believe.
John 1:12-13 being born again is not by
man's will, but by God's.

John 6:37 all that the father gives me
shall come to me and the one who comes
to me I shall certainly not cast out.

P. Perseverance of the saints- you
Cannot lose your salvation!! God has
a 100% success rate in perseverance
Of his elect.
John 10:27-28 his sheep will never
perish.
John 6:47 salvation is everlasting life
Romans 8:1 we have passed out of
judgement
Philippians 1:6 faithful to perfect us
1cor 10:13 never tempted beyond what
we can handle

* sola fida- by faith alone
* sola scriptura- by scripture alone
* sola christus- by Christ alone
* sola gratia- by grace alone
* sola de Gloria- glory to God alone

The Trinity

God is one God, but three coeternal consubstantial persons or hypostases—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as "one God in three Divine persons".

Are we confessional? What confession?
