What do we believe?

cross-srbcWe believe that there is only one God.  He created everything, including us.

We believe that everyone has done wrong and has failed God’s standard.

We believe that God loves each of us and came down to earth in the form of  Jesus Christ.

We believe that Jesus died on a cross to take our punishment and wrongdoing.

We believe that Jesus rose from the dead and is alive today.

We believe that everyone who has put their trust in Jesus and asks God to forgive them will be forgiven, their relationship with God will be restored, and they will go to heaven when this life on earth is over.

We believe that God makes his power available to us through the Holy Spirit.

We believe that a day of judgement is coming when Jesus will return to the earth.

We believe in the Bible as God’s word.
