We are believers who trust in God's eternal love and the everlasting promises
of His Word. And we want to share His love and the promises of His word
with others.

We believe ... in the Omnipotent God of Psalm 24:1-2 who created heaven
and earth and all its fullness and those who dwell therein.

We believe ... in the faithful promise that God made in Genesis 1:26, "Let US
create man in Our image and after Our likeness," and that He wants to fulfill
this promise in our lives if we will only allow Him to do so.  He will never force
Himself or His thoughts and ways on anyone.  The choice is up to each one of
us as to whether we allow Him to fulfill this promise or not.  That is the divine
benefit of the free-will He gave to us when He created us.  He wants us to receive
His love and the promises of His Word because we freely choose to receive them
and not out of any kind of fear or intimidation.

We believe ... that the "Us" spoken of in Genesis 1:26 is God the Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit revealing their unique oneness in all things.  God is three
distinct Persons and yet indivisible in thoughts and ways, therefore they are
"One" indivisible God.

We believe ... that God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit's eternal love and
everlasting promises made a way for all mankind to be redeemed from the wages
of sin which is "death - eternal separation from God."  The Son of God out of
His eternal love for mankind came to earth from heaven to pay the wages we
owed for our sinful thoughts and ways so we wouldn't have to.  Redemption
from the wages of sin is a free gift given to us by God when we sincerely repent
of our sinfulness. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through Him might be saved."  John 3:17

We believe ... that - sin - is choosing to think and act in ways that are not in
agreement with God's thoughts and ways which are defined in His Word for all
to know about.  He says in Isaiah 55:8 - "My thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways My ways."  When we don't align our thoughts and ways
with the thoughts and ways of God which are defined in His Word we are on the
pathway that leads to being sinful.

We believe ... that - repentance - means to come to that place in your life when
you no longer want your thoughts and ways to be in disagreement with God's
thoughts and ways and you tell Him so with a sincere heart.  Then you completely
surrender yourself and your life to Him so He can transform your thoughts and
ways to be in agreement with His thoughts and ways.  He promises through the
Apostle Paul in Philippians 1:6 that the good work He begins in us He will
complete.  And in Psalm 138:8 He promises through the psalmist that He will
perfect that which concerns us.  So as we stay faithfully submitted to Him - He
will faithfully fulfill the promises of His Word.

We believe ... that God the Son arose from the grave that the sin of mankind put
Him in and returned to heaven to await that appointed time when He would come
and take all who truly repented of their sinfulness, and completely surrendered
themselves and their lives to being transformed into God's image and likeness to
heaven to live with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit forever.  There we will
be our own unique and distinct persons and yet "one" in thoughts (image) and
ways (likeness) of our Loving God, just as He said in Genesis 1:26 that He wanted
us to be.

From the beginning - God wanted us to be in a loving and righteous relationship
with Him.  The question is ... do we want to be in a loving and righteous relationship
with Him?  If we do - we need to tell Him so!  He has been waiting on us to want
this kind of relationship before He would enter into our lives.  He is love - and love
never demands its own way.  So we must choose to love Him of our own free-will
for He will never force Himself, or His love, or the promises of His Word on anyone.

"Have mercy upon us, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to
the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out our transgressions.  Wash us
thoroughly from our iniquity, and cleanse us from our sins."  Psalm 51:1-2
