We believe God is the Creator and Ruler of the Universe. 

God has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God

 

Gen. 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1st Peter 1:2,11; 2nd Corinthians 13:14

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Jesus is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for sinners by dying on a cross. He bodily rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

 

Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1st Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1st Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13

We believe the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God.

God's Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. His presence empowers Christians to live a godly life, understand spiritual truth, and fulfill the Great Commission. All believers are to seek to live under His control daily.

 

2nd Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1st Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

We believe mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him,

We were all made to experience peace and fulfillment in the presence of God. Through Adam’s disobedience, however, the entire human race has separated itself from God and has lost sign of their purpose. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort alone.

 

Romans 2:2-5; Ephesians 2:8-9; Genesis 1:27, 9:6; Psalms 51:5, 58:3; Romans 5:12, 3:23; Ephesians 2:1

We believe salvation was purchased through the blood of Jesus Christ

All have sinned and fallen short of the God's glory, and the penalty for that sin is eternal separation from our Heavenly Father.  Jesus, however, freely took our place and experienced the pain and separation from God that our sins deserved.  It was this act of grace that provides the only means for our sins to be forgiven.  

 

God loves you so much that He sent His only begotten son into the world to take upon Himself your punishment. If it is your desire to live at peace with God, experience His plan for your life and walk with Him, then surrender you life to Jesus today and experience His presence and forgiveness.  

 

Acts 4:12, 13:38-39; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:4-5, 5:1; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 16:31; Ephesians 1:4-5

We believe every word of Scripture is inspired by God and without error

God's Word accurate and without error.  It is a lamp for our feet and a light on our path. All scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the person of God may be complete and equipped for every good work.  

 

The Scriptures consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the foundation of the faith and practice of 4LIFE Worship.

 

Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21

We believe we are saved by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ; therefore, our salvation is secure for eternity in Christ Jesus! 

Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.

 

John 10:29; Ephesians 2:8-10; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10,14; 1 Peter 1:3-5

We believe the Bible sets forth two ordinances, the Lord’s Supper and water baptism

The Lord’s Supper is to be celebrated regularly in remembrance of Christ’s death on the cross, and in expectation of His return. Water baptism is an outward testimony of a person’s belief in Christ. Immersion is the ideal means set forth in Scripture.

 

Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16; Acts 8:12,36-38, 9:18, 10:47; 1st Corinthians 11:23-26

We believe all human life is sacred and created by God in His image

Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.

 

Genesis 1:27; Psalms 139
