If you find yourself in the precarious position of looking for a church home you should look for a church that…
-Can feed your spirit by challenging you to live a godly life (live like Christ did)
-Helps you to grow through your understanding and relationship with God
-Holds you accountable to live your faith
-Believes in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and that they are the supreme and final authority for truth, faith, and life.
-Believes in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father (being God), Son (being Christ) and The Holy Spirit (God’s Spirit indwelling in the believer).
-Believes that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and is truly God and was truly man.
-Believes that man was created in the image of God; that mankind sinned, and thereby brought upon them, not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is eternal separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature (born knowing how to sin).
-Believes that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to Scripture, as a representative and substitute sacrifice for us;
-Believes all people who truly repent (ask God’s Forgiveness) for their sins and believe in Jesus as Lord & Savior are forgiven by God.
-Believes in the present ministry (all Christians even today have the Holy Spirit) of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling in the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
-Believes in the resurrection (that Jesus rose on the 3rd day) of the crucified body of Jesus.
– Believes that Jesus will return for His church (Christians), to judge the earth for not accepting Him as Lord and His ascension into.
