Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:19

Our Jerusalem

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testament is the inspired Word of God. It is inerrant, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives. (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Pet. 1:20-21)

  • We believe in One God who is revealed in the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14, John 14:10,26)

  • We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. (Isa. 59:2, Isa. 64:7, Mic. 3:4, Rom. 6:16, Rom. 6:23)

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man and is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross in our place, rose again to life, and ascended to Heaven. (John 1:1,14, John 10:30, Col. 2:9, Heb. 1:8, John 11:25-26, 1 Cor. 15:3-4, 2 Cor. 5:14-15)

  • We believe that we receive an eternal salvation, the forgiveness of our sins, and reconciliation to God, by grace through faith in Jesus. (John 3:5, 16-17, Eph. 2:8-9, Rom. 5:8, Acts 4:12, Rom. 10:13)

  • We believe in water baptism by immersion for every believer and that the baptism is not part of salvation, but is one of the first steps of obedience in our Christian walk. (Acts 8:36-39, John 3:23, Matt 3:16, Matt 28:19, Rom. 6:3-4)

  • We believe that God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives and that He enables us by His grace to grow in love, maturity, and relationship with Him. (2 Peter 3:18, Eph. 3:17-18, Eph. 4:15, Col. 2:6-7, John 15:5)

  • We believe that each person will exist eternally. Whether we spend eternity with God or separated from Him is determined by our response to the grace and salvation of Jesus. (Matt. 25:46, John 5:28-29, John 11:25-26)

  • We believe that Jesus will come back again for the Church. (Dan. 2:31-45, 1 Thes. 4:13-17, Titus 2:13, Rev. 19:11-16)
